Grass-fed Beef Tri Tip
16 pieces (2 pieces per pack, approx 36lbs per box)
The tri tip (aka bottom sirloin butt, knuckle cap) is a triangular section of the bottom sirloin that is becoming more and more popular because it is more economical than the premium steak cuts, yet provides great flavor and surprising tenderness when simply roasted.
Grass Fed & Pasture Raised
Silver Fern Farms Angus beef is 100% grass-fed & finished, raised free range on massive, pristine pastures in New Zealand. No hormone or antibiotic growth promotants are ever used, and GMOs are illegal there.
Because of New Zealand's moderate climate, these cattle are pasture raised year round, with free access to windbreaks and other structures for shelter from inclement weather.
Selected for Excellence
Silver Fern Farms is a coop of small family farmers across New Zealand. The Angus program combines the Angus breed, renowned for superior marbling, flavor, and texture, with a grading system that ensures you get great beef every time. It has a clean, boldly beefy flavor without the heavy tallow characteristic of commodity beef.
Careful quality grading ensures it is consistently more marbled, tender, and flavorful than much of the grass-fed beef available in the US.
Not only is grass fed beef more humane, it's better for you too. 100% grass fed beef is lower in saturated fat as well as higher in valuable nutrients like vitamins A & E, conjugated linoleic acid (aka CLA), and omega-3 fatty acids.
Store frozen grassfed beef in your freezer until you're ready to use it, then thaw only as much as you plan on cooking.
RECIPES & TIPS
Grass fed beef tri tips make great roasts, or can be sliced into tri tip steaks. If you want to add extra flavor, try applying a dry rub prior to roasting. Each tri tip will easily feed four to five people. Rest each roast for 5-10 minutes once it’s finished in the oven, then slice thinly at an angle and serve either with starch (why not heirloom potatoes?) and a veggie or use it in delicious hot or cold sandwiches.
