REGION: Darling Downs
EATABILITY: The word Wagyu literally means Japanese cow and is judged on its marble score, which attributes to its tenderness. The cattle are finished on a high diet of grain for at least 300 days. During the cooking process, the fatty deposits (marbling) breakdown and enhance its delicate flavours. Being a rump it is highly flavoured.
SERVING SUGGESTION: Medium Rare to Medium
WINE SUGGESTION: Monkey Bar Rose
Dry Aged Beef
Over 40 years ago most of our beef was dry aged, as this was the natural way to enhance the flavour and the tenderness of beef. The process of dry ageing begins with premium quality meat with a good fat cover and involves hanging the meat in sterile cold rooms with carefully controlled air flow, humidity and temperature for up to 9 weeks. During the ageing process, enzymes break down the muscle fibres, this improves tenderness, intensifies the flavour, resulting in the meat being positively buttery in texture and flavour. The flavour is best described as robust, rich, nutty and beefy.
1-15 days In the first 15 days the beef starts to form a crust on the outside which locks in the flavour.
16–30 days The ageing process is well under way with the enzymes breaking down the muscle fibres and the crust on the beef is now discoloured slightly.
31-45 days The outer crust of the beef is a lot dryer and distinctly more discoloured; at this stage of the process the inside of the meat is reaching its optimum flavour and tenderness.
46-60 days Flavour has intensified and the tenderness is maximised. The outer crust is then fully trimmed and cut into steaks ready for the customer to enjoy.
