The Story

After an exhaustive search for the best steak cuts of premium Beef, Flame has partnered with Alliance Meats and the HANDPICKED 55 Day Aged Beef brand. This premium Beef is the result of two noble pursuits –marbling and ageing. Typically born on rolling hill country our beef are free to graze on a mixture of pastures such as ryegrass and clover. 

There is no grain feeding and minimal human intervention to natural exercise and grazing habits. To achieve the high marbling score from a natural grass- fed diet usually takes time so our beef is traditionally raised to 24-36 months of age. Then highly experienced, Arguably obsessive master butchers search for the very finest animals. Only the very best make the grade (less than 10%). They hand select on ACTUAL meat quality attributes, not breed, refusing to be swayed by the perceived attributes of any particular breed (indeed experts will tell you there is more variation within a single herd than between breeds). Meat with only a 4+ marbling score are selected and provide the all-important flavour and succulence.  Once the meat is selected, extreme wet ageing of 55 days for specific cuts such as sirloin, fillet and ribeye to provide unprecedented levels of tenderness. HANDPICKED 55 Day Aged Beef has a well-balanced but milder beef flavour profile + bodied with succulent, buttery notes imparted by the elevated marbling and a pleasant mineral, flinty finish. All this effort was recently recognised at the World Steak Challenge in the UK our steaks took out Gold and Silver awards.
