USDA Beef

USDA Beef

America and beef go hand in hand, with the US beef burger and a big old steak being almost symbolic of America. As such, the meat coming out of America is the result of years of skill and experience and, with a demanding public who consume enormous amounts of beef every year; the standards have to be high.

Here at Tom Hixson butchers, many people ask us “What is typical USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) beef like and what makes it so special?” When you think of the States they love to make things bigger and better and the meat is no exception. USDA cuts are big, really big. When compared to other rib eyes, the USDA equivalent can be twice if not three times bigger; the fillet, boasts up to a kilo more of meat. So you will certainly be getting a lot of bang for your buck when getting some beef from America. Other than the size, USDA beef is notoriously tender and juicy, with a distinct flavour that is the pride and joy of the ranchers.

There are several reasons why the US rancher’s beef reaches such high standards. Firstly, ranchers utilise select breeds in their optimal conditions to ensure the cows are at their happiest. Our suppliers at Tom Hixson have taken Black Angus beef and captured and enhanced their natural propensity to terrific marbling and tenderness. They have done this by treating the cows right and ensuring they are able to happily roam the wide-open spaces of the Central and Western plains. This means the cows are relaxed and tranquil during their lives, which, in turn, result in tender beef, that has avoided the detrimental impact of excess adrenaline. As a result, the beef is incredibly juicy and succulent.

The diet of the cows also ensures that they produce incredibly succulent and flavourful beef. Primarily they are raised on the natural grasses on the plains which ensures a lean beef. After that they are given a grain-fed and corn-fed finish, which enhances the natural marbling and ensures that, during cooking, it releases a rush of flavour. This is what gives USDA beef its amazing reputation.

As with all our products stocked at our online butchers we take special care to select the right producers we work with and in this case we only take cuts that are ‘’choice’’ classified, which is one of the top two available grading of USDA beef, in terms of marbling.

Here at our butchers, we are always looking to add and expand our range of products to include as many cuts as possible and give you as many chances to sample and try this sensational beef. We will regularly have the fillet steak, which will be as tender a set of steaks as you can get. We also have the classic steak cuts of the sirloin and rib eye, which will give you huge numbers of amazing US style steaks to serve up or a couple of joints to roast. Outside of that we have some proper American BBQ products for you including the USDA Burgers, Beef Short ribs and the legendary cut for smoking, the USDA brisket. We also have some more alternative cuts in the Featherblade, which can be slow cooked to best bring out the flavours, and Silver Flats, a great joint for roasting. For more recipe ideas visit our Foodie News page.

Also, there are some myths around USDA beef that we must mention and that is the use of hormones. None of our beef has ever been treated with growth hormones and are completely hormone free. In fact, any beef coming into the EU must be hormone free.

So why not sample some of our American beef from this meat-loving nation and see how they do things State side. For more beef options from around the world, visit our Beef page.
