The striploin is the muscle typically cut into NY strip steaks and offers a good balance of flavor and tenderness. Striploins can also be cooked whole as luxurious roasts.
These striploins have had most of their tail meat and outer fat layer trimmed off for your convenience (1x1). Because the butchery work has been done for you, it’s simple to slice them into steaks without much trimming.
The Top 4% - Graded for Unparalleled Quality
Silver Fern Farms’ Grass-Fed Reserve Beef is amongst the finest beef New Zealand produces, representing around the top 4% of production. That makes it some of the very best grass-fed beef in the world.
Exceptionally tender and flavorful, this beef is hand selected according to the “Eating Quality” (EQ) grading system. The EQ System is a set of standards developed through a university study involving 13,900 taste testers across 17 cities tasting 97,000 samples in order to quantifiably determine what makes the best beef.
Farmers whose beef grades into the Reserve program are paid a premium and are given feedback allowing them to further improve the quality of their herd.
Grass-Fed & Pasture Raised
Reserve cattle are grass-fed & finished, raised free range on massive pastures, without hormone or antibiotic growth promotants. In addition, GMO seeds are illegal in New Zealand. Because New Zealand has such a mild climate, the cattle are on pasture year round, with free access to windbreaks and other structures in case of inclement weather.
