Irish Beef

Here at Tom Hixson of Smithfields, our handpicked Irish producers share our passion for quality beef. They expertly produce consistently tender and succulent pieces of meat. Their cows are afforded the freedom to roam in open green pastures. This calm, laid back lifestyle means the cows enjoy a tranquil environment, ultimately resulting in little stress during their lives; this reduces the tension in the cow’s muscles and helps avoid tough and chewy beef.

We have a few cuts available from our Irish range for you here at Tom Hixson. Firstly, the traditional South American cut, the Picanha (or rump cap), comes from the top of the rump and has a marvellous combination of flavour and succulence. The fat covering ensures the beef does not become dry during cooking and releases delicious flavours as it seeps into the meat. Additionally, we have the fantastic flank steak which has both health benefits and flavours bursting gout of it. The other Irish product we stock is our award winning Chuck Roll. Made up of parts of the cow’s neck, shoulder blade and upper leg, the chuck role is a well worked piece of beef and as a result is a lean and versatile product.

 The Irish beef we supply has been grass-fed finished. This results in leaner beef with an abundance of omega 3 and 6. You do need to be careful when cooking grass-fed beef, as compared to the finish of grain-fed beef, there is slightly less fat protecting the meat so can become dry if overcooked or cooked too quickly. Treat with care and you will really enjoy this lean yet succulent meat.

 The Picanha is a hugely popular steak in South American, with many considering it the optimal cut. It provides wondrously flavourful steaks due to the fat covering and can be barbequed or grilled to perfection. You can experiment with various marinades and seasonings, which will add different layers and textures to your steak.

 The lesser-known flank steak is a grass fed meat, ideal for any occasion. It has a great mixture of intense flavours but also a healthy, low fat content, which saw it listed in Men’s Health Magazine as one of the "49 of the best things in the world to eat right now". We recommend grilling, pan- frying or braising this award winning product to see what the fuss is about.

 The Chuck Roll is a joint that lends itself beautifully to being braised and used in dishes like stews or pot roasts. As mentioned it is a cut that is from a well worked area of the animal and has a coming together of muscle, meat and fat. It is often described as the Boston Butt of beef and, like the butt, lends itself to pulling and shredding as opposed to slicing. But the meat holds its succulence beautifully.
