Delicious enough without preparation

Translated from Japanese: I made organic yakitori at home using sesame, chicken skin, and chicken hearts. It was delicious enough even if it was cooked in a frying pan. The next time an acquaintance comes, I will prepare these chicken hearts with thigh meat. The stir-fried onions and peppers didn't stop the deliciousness either.

New Zealand Certified Organic Free-Range Chicken Hearts (300g)

Horizon Farms
PL215

Description

Utilizing the whole animal is sustainable and responsible. Chicken hearts are a good source of minerals as they contain a good amount of zinc and iron. You get one pack of certified organic pasture-raised free-range chicken hearts. The hearts are cleaned and ready to cook but may still have a bit of fat left on. You can either trim the fat off or leave it on - please see images. Because our organic chicken is free-range and pasture-raised they grow at different rates so the hearts will come in various sizes mixed together. The most popular way to eat chicken hearts in Japan is Yakitori (grilled chicken skewers). 

New Zealand free-range, and open pasture-raised certified organic chicken. Naturally and sustainably slow with love and care on an apple orchard farm in the sunny Hawke's Bay, New Zealand by the two Bostock brothers. No antibiotics, no growth hormones, no GMO feed, no use of chemicals, and free of chlorine. The healthiest and tastiest chicken you can get! Taste the difference. Not only is the chicken certified organic, the feed, as well as the apple orchards where the happy chicken roam and forage on, are certified organic as well. Certified organic is not only good for you, it is but most importantly good for the environment. The only certified organic chicken in New Zealand. This is the only certified organic open pasture-raised chicken in all of Japan!

Ben and George Bostock grew up on their family’s organic apple orchard in sunny Hawke’s Bay and share a family passion for healthy, safe growing practices where there is control from the farm to plate. This means no chemicals, no antibiotics, no hormones, and no genetic modification. The brothers are determined to give their free-range and pasture-raised chickens the best life.

 

Bostock Brothers Chicken Collage

✔ Open pasture-raised on an organic apple orchard in sunny Hawke's Bay, New Zealand with all the love and care.

✔ Chicken are allowed to freely forage on open pasture and exhibit natural behavior. Chalets provide shelter from the elements which they can enter and leave at free will.

✔ Certified organic by AsureQuality in New Zealand, a fully government-owned organic food assurance enterprise.

✔ No use of antibiotics or growth-promoting hormones - ever

✔ No GMO feed, no chemicals used or chlorine-washed - ever

✔ One farm, one family, one importer - traceability from farm to fork.

✔ Naturally slow-grown chicken. Meat is better formed, of much higher quality and superior taste.

✔ Chicken are fed certified organic lush, green grass, and juicy organic apples as well as home-grown non-GMO feed including corn and barley.

✔ Air chilled - no chlorinated water is used to cool the meat. Which means less shrinkage and water loss during cooking.

Amazing

Translated from Japanese: I got this as a Mother’s Day gift for my mother whom I couldn’t meet. The meat was soft and juicy and really delicious, she said. It’s also possible to order this warmly and with no worries as present for staff members. I think they package everything carefully, too. Thank you very much. I think I will order again.

Amazing!

Translated from Japanese: It’s like eating the steak of a famous steak house! I ate one steak with salt and wasabi. I used a fish grill and grilled it on both sides on low flame. After wrapping it up in aluminum foil, I turned the flame up and grilled it thoroughly on both sides. It turned out perfectly rose-pink. I ordered again right away. This time, I got a filet, sirloin, ribeye and salt set. I think I will look forward to doing this once a month.

This steak is full of charm

Translated from Japanese: Both, wagyu and American beef are of very high quality when it comes to their tenderness, the flavor of the lean meat and the sweetness of the fat. Although I think that the center of wagyu is the tastiest. I wonder if it’s because it’s grass-fed beef? Just like grain-fed, pure wagyu, this beef also doesn’t feel like it has a lot of fat on it and I think this is optimal to eat it as steak.

Soft!

Translated from Japanese: I absolutely like this beef more than the beef from the famous beef restaurant of my local area. Marbled steak is always really soft and juicy, so it’s a light dish. Although I ate a lot, I don’t feel guilty. I’m happy I ate something healthy. I usually don’t like the smell of beef, but this one didn’t have any. My father’s teeth are weak, but he ate this ribeye happily. I think it’s easy to eat for children, too. While writing this comment, I feel like eating it again!

Translated from Japanese: I’ve reached that age where I hate very oily meat. It’s my first time ordering American beef online, but the concentrated, original taste of the meat was amazing.

Translated from Japanese: Although it's grass-fed beef, it was delicious without any odor because it’s grain-finished.
Even after thawing and cooking it immediately, it was not dry and soft. It's expensive because it's the highest quality, but it was meat that made me want to eat it again.

Translated from Japanese: It had the feeling of “American beef”.

Delicious meat with no strange taste!

Translated from Japanese: Because the meat was so thick, it’s not enough to only cook two sides, but the sides have to be carefully grilled as well to reach the medium rare state. It’s an unique article that tastes good from the first bite, but is even more delicious when you chew it. When you say “ah” with the food in your mouth, a nice aroma comes out and the meat’s taste spreads evenly. With just salt and pepper, nothing else is needed, I grilled it in a simple way. I thought the fat on the meat would smell, but a properly raised cow is different after all. I’m happy for having had something delicious!

(I ordered) sirloin, flap meat steak and filet mignon

Translated from Japanese: I prepared those three and compared them. My friend liked the sirloin meat. It tastes like steak, my friend said. My husband liked the flap meat steak. He said it tasted like the meat was cut from the best part of the cow. I quickly wrapped it inside a tortilla and ate it like that and even the meat juice sticking to the tortilla was delicious~

Truly different

We bought 10 of these for our garden party last week and each and every person was truly amazed by the quality and the taste. Our chef cooked them to medium and we used your Italian salt. Almost too good to give them to the kids!! We grilled the burgers for them anywy - they were exceptional as well - bravo! My family and I appreciate your business and are very happy to have found healthy and safe meat in Japan. I'd recommend adding more brochures so we can hand them out.

Thick sliced steak

Translated from Japanese: If you want a thick sliced steak, I recommend small filets more than sirloin or rib roasts.

Only if possible, use a thick iron plate and grill it slowly, it won’t go wrong for sure.

This meat is soft

Translated from Japanese: While wondering if this had been a waste of money, I grilled it for a BBQ. I put it on the grill and topped it off with the sea salt that is sold here as well. After adding some pepper as well, I grilled it on low heat. Once the entire meat had changed its color, I broiled it right in the middle of the grill on the highest heat. When I cut it into pieces it was perfectly medium-rare. I thought it was an exaggeration that you can even cut it with chopsticks, but it was really soft enough to work. When you chew the meat the delicious taste spreads in your mouth bit by bit. At first, I thought the meat is expensive, but now I agree (with the price). Although I didn’t grill it in a frypan, I think it was good I gave the BBQ grill a try.

これは本当においしい!今まで食べたステーキの中でも一番好み。レア寄りのミディアム・レアで焼いけど、ひと噛みごとに旨味がじゅわ~!牛肉ってこんなにおいしかったのかと感動。友達家族と「おいしい」を連発してしまいました。これ、レストランで食べたらすごい高いんだろうな。自分で焼いてもこんなに美味しいなら、また家で豪華ステーキパーティ+ワインで楽しみたい!

これは柔らかい

もったいないかなと思いつつ、思い切ってBBQで焼いてみる。合わせ焼き網ではさんで、ここで売ってたシーソルトを大粒のままパラパラ。胡椒をかけて炭火の弱いところからジワジワ。で、全体に色が変わったところで、真ん中の高温で炙り焼き!切るときれいなミディアム・レア。箸でも切れるっていうのは大げさだなと思ったが、でも確かに柔らかい。噛むと肉の旨味がじんわりでてくる。高い肉だと思ったが、これは納得。今回はフライパンでは焼かなかったが、思い切ってBBQで焼いてみると良いと思う。

An American taste

Translated from Japanese: I think that American beef is the most delicious. Japanese oily beef tastes bad, but the taste of this one is splendid from the first bite. I grilled it carefully on low heat and ate it rare. It was a great success. I think I will order again.
