WESTHOLME WAGYU - THICK CUT SIRLOIN STEAK
Australian Wagyu Beef 8-9 MBS
Australia has a reputation for producing clean, green, and safe beef and the quality of beef is second to none national traceability systems that work in conjunction with the national standard for animal health, welfare, and biosecurity to ensure best practices in animal husbandry and low-stress stock handling.
'Born wild, raised on native grasses'
Westholme cattle are born wild and raised on some of Australia’s most iconic cattle stations. The cattle came to Australia from Japan more than two decades ago. Their lineage traces back to the mighty Westholme herd that was founded on champion Wagyu bulls and cows and the vast pastures of Mitchell grass nourish the cattle where they roam free.
These delicious Westholme sirloin steaks have been thick cut to approximately 5cm and are ideal for open-flame cooking - then slicing and sharing.
The steaks are cut here in the UK and then rapidly frozen to -28° in a matter of minutes. This process offers two major advantages, one being zero food waste and the other helping to keep the meat in amazing condition. Red meat naturally discolours after a few hours so blast freezing is the ultimate way to keep the steak as fresh as it is when first cut.
Cooking test results with MEATER®
Sirloin Steak size: 710g, probe placed in the thickest part of the steak that had been out of the fridge for 20 minutes. The probe will pick this up in any case.
Cooking Method: We used a Webber compact bbq, simple but effective. High-quality Charcoal briquettes from The green Olive . The briquettes were lit and covered the base of one-half of the bbq only. The steak was seasoned well with salt and placed on the half of the bbq with no briquettes underneath, lid down the steak was turned every 5 minutes.
The internal temperature of the bbq was approx 220°c, and the MEATER probe was set to take the steak off at medium 55°c
Time: Cook time was 36 minutes with a further rest time of 10 Minutes
Result: The steak looked amazing in terms of exterior colour and had beautiful smokey flavours. More medium well than medium though due to its intense marbling was not an issue, and the texture was still amazing - though we would suggest setting the probe to 52°c
Westholme wagyu is revered for good reason - exceptional grain-finished meat with bags of flavour and a melt-in-the-mouth texture. 700g easily enough for 2/3 people to share.

TRANSIT TIMES & PACKAGING
All ingredients that we sell are hand selected choosing from the best product available.
We only use premium express courier services and aim to have produce out of our hands and into yours in the shortest possible time.
All perishable goods orders are safely packed in thick, wool lined, insulated boxes with Eco friendly Ice packs, guaranteeing freshness for a minimum of 2 full days in transit. Much longer in colder seasons.
The vast majority of frozen food shipments arrive frozen but we cannot guarantee this. In the event that your order has defrosted it should still be at a very low temperature when you receive it and therefore fine to put in straight in your freezer. Refreezing is only unsafe if the product has reached 8°c. It is worth mentioning that supermarkets routinely sell defrosted food as "fresh", with the advice that it may be frozen when you get home.
All fresh truffles are sent in a foil resealable pack with an absorbent paper. This is suitable for storing in your fridge. If storing truffles for more than a few days we recommend wrapping them in paper towel or using a Tuberpac. Fresh truffles are always best consumed as soon as possible.
