Old Galician cow meat has truly unique and excellent characteristics, the sublime aroma combines with an authentic taste that brings back ancient memories, of when you could define a good meat by its layer of yellow fat. The color of the fat is the real added value of this breed and it is obtained by following a specific and well-defined diet. The animals, as the tradition wanted, feed on carrots, grass, forage and corn, and this allows the meat to acquire a unique flavor, in addition to the rather acidic climate due to its proximity to the Ocean.
The Galician Old Cow is not a breed of cattle , but it does identify the breeding area. It is different for the Rubia Gallega, which represents one of the best breeds in the entire world.
Beef cuts to grill and to roast
Among the bestsellers cuts we offer the Rib-Eye, the striploin, the tenderloin and the well-known and astonishing tomahawk steak.
A 30-day matured meat, the rib-eye comes from the sixth to the twelfth rib of the beef: the muscles in this rib area are little used during the bovine's life and, as a result, the texture remains soft even after cooking. A distinctive feature of rib eye is the round of white fat, similar precisely to the eye of a bovine. Rib-eye is a marbled meat with a huge area of fat, so the advice is to use a drizzle of oil for the pan or a barbecue lid.
The striploin, also known as sirloin, is a tender cut, which does not refer exactly to an anatomical portion, but it may refer to those parts next to the tenderloin, which is almost always the rump, a highly prized cut from the beef. The sirloin is the perfect cut for making both steaks for grilling or pan-frying and roasts.
Tomahawk is a steak derived from the front end of the sirloin, named after the weapon (shaped like a hammer) that Native Americans used in combat. This cut is ideal for barbecuing or grilling, with the addition of salt and pepper for a tastier result.
The tenderloin is the most tender cut of beef, very lean and with little fat. This cut is the best to cook in a pan with butter, seasonal herbs and salt. Never forget to use a drizzle of olive oil on every cut of meat.
