100% Grass-Fed Beef from New Zealand
Grass-Fed Beef Outer Skirt Steaks
Approx. 35lbs Total in 2-Steak Packs
Skirt steaks are a long, thin cut from the plate primal. They offer bold, beefy flavor at a more affordable price than highly prized ribeyes, tenderloins, etc. Inner skirt steaks are the quintessential fajita cut, while outer skirt steaks are usually served sliced as a center-of-plate steak rather than as an ingredient.
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 fresh skirt steaks in your refrigerator or freeze for longer term storage. Frozen skirt steaks should be kept in your freezer until you’re ready to use them, then thawed before cooking.
RECIPES & TIPS
Skirt steak has a loose texture that absorbs marinades well. For best tenderness, cook it no further than medium & slice against the grain (after a 5-10 minute rest) before serving.
