Australian Grassfed Beef Shines Manila

Blog Categories Caption 2

My husband and I have always adored beef–burger, steak, bistek Tagalog, you name it! So much so that I did not pass up the chance to join the Australian Beef Embassy’s culinary trail promo last week. The promo showcases the delectable Australian Grassfed Beef, naturally low in cholesterol and high in Omega 3 fatty acids, making it arguably better than the beautifully marbled Kobe and Wagyu varieties. 

Being a Mandaluyong resident, I picked the trail where I only had to go around the Makati-Mandaluyong-Ortigas area. 

The Charcoal-Grilled Grassfed Oyster Blade Steak (Php1,000 + 10%), for instance, may be featuring an unusual cow part, but has a strong flavor and a tender texture. It tastes great with the accompanying mustard sauce, mesclun green salad and French fries. The fries, I’d like to note, taste nothing like I’ve had before–they’re cooked through, not oily at all, and tastes like it’s been soaked in a good dose of saltwater before fried. Not sure if they’re homemade either–never got to ask the Chef herself, and they taste light–but I guess you’ll just have to try them for yourself!
