Organic feed given to these animals is grown in soil that's free from pesticides and synthetic fertilizers.

  • What is the grading factor on beef?
    USDA carries several grades of beef products to determine the meat quality – the higher the grade the better the quality in terms of taste and tenderness. The top four beef choices are listed below: 1) Wagyu Beef – considered an art in beef selections, extra marbling adds extra flavor 2) Prime Beef – grass-fed high marbling for better taste 3) Choice Beef – moderate marbling adds taste 4) Select Beef – fairly tender

    We have a variety of steaks that can be prepared to your liking. We carry Prime Rib-Eye (bone-in or boneless), Wagyu Beef, Premium Quality Filet Mignon and High Quality Skirt Steaks; all can be grilled, pan cooked or oven roasted.
  • What is the best way to prepare and cook a steak?
    Before cooking or grilling bring the steak to room temperature. To cook or grill, sear on both sides for two minutes on high heat on each side and continue to cook/grill at medium heat to the desired doneness level (see question #12 for temperature levels)
  • How to check a steak for "doneness"?"
    Why take any chances? Get a digital thermometer. Insert probe horizontally from an outside edge rather than straight down from the shallow end Very Rare: 115 degrees Rare: 120 degrees Medium-Rare: 130 degrees Well Done: 145 degree Note: For best results allow meat to rest for approximately 5 to 10 minutes after removing from the heat (meat temperature increases 5 to 10 degrees during the resting period)
  • How spicy hot are your Tiger Shrimp, Hot Wings and Chicken Breast?"
    If you normally eat spicy food you will find the spicy level a medium. If you don’t eat spicy food the spicy level will be high.

  • What is the best way to thaw frozen meat?
    The safest way to thaw meat is to plan ahead and place the product in refrigerator one day before you cook, bake or grill. Never leave the frozen meat in room temperature to thaw. If the frozen meat is for same day use, place in large container under cold running water until it thaws (approximately 20 minutes).
