100% Pasture Raised Beef from New Zealand
Grass-fed Beef Briskets
3 individually vacuum sealed briskets, approximately 10 lbs. each (about 30 lbs.)
Briskets offer great flavor when slow cooked until tender (they’re typically smoked or braised). They’re very popular as a barbecue cut. These briskets are point end cuts, which are smaller and fattier than brisket flats with a triangular shape.
Grass-Fed & Pasture Raised
Silver Fern Farms Angus beef is grass-fed, raised free range on massive, pristine pastures in New Zealand. No hormone or antibiotic growth promotants are ever used, and GMO seeds 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 co-op 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. 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 fresh grass-fed briskets in your refrigerator or freeze for longer term storage. Frozen briskets should be kept in your freezer until you’re ready to use them, then thawed before cooking.
RECIPES & TIPS
Grass-fed beef briskets should be slow cooked in order to become tender, with the most popular methods being smoking and braising.
The brisket is a classic beef barbecue cut, and makes amazing sandwiches when finished with barbecue sauce, jus, or gravy. It can also be served sliced with sides like rice, potatoes and green vegetables.
