Tri-tip
Deliciously intense beef flavour
The Tri-tip is a flavoursome triangular and flat shaped cut removed from the Rump. It can be roasted whole or cut into small steaks for grilling or barbecuing.
Flank Steak
Full of flavour and extremely versatile
Taken from the muscle beneath the loin in the abdominal area. The flank steak is incredibly lean, and practically free of connective tissue so very little trimming is required. Flank steaks are incredibly flavoursome and easy to cook. Due to the coarse grain that runs along the length, Flank Steaks are ideal when prepared with rubs & marinades.
Blade
Perfect for slow cooking applications
The Blade roast is a flavoursome cut of meat that is best cooked by moist heat methods such as braising or roasting in liquid. Slow cooking helps to soften the connective tissue located between the muscles of this cut.
Bolar Blade
A great roasting meat
Bolar Blade is prepared from a whole Blade by removal of the Oyster Blade along the natural seam.
Oyster Blade
A great roasting meat
Oyster Blade Steak is removed from the Bolar Blade by separation along the natural seam. Roasting assists with the breakdown of the connective tissue in this cut.
Rump
Full of flavour
The Rump is prepared from the Hindquarter and is removed by separating the Rump from the Shortloin. The rump consists of a number of hindquarter muscles. Compared to some of the muscles making up the other hindquarter primal cuts the rump muscles do less work on the animal and are therefore reasonably tender. A boneless cut, the Rump is very flavoursome and well suited to roasting.
Rostbiff
Succulent with a marked flavour
The Rostbiff is prepared from the Rump by removal of the Rump Cap along the natural seam. The Rostbiff contains very little subcutaneous fat. The flavours of this cut come to life when roasted.
Chuck
Perfect for braising and slow cooking applications
The chuck contains a mix of meat, fat and connective tissue that when braised or stewed is flavoursome and tender.
Chuck Roll
Ideal for casseroles or slow moist cooking methods
Chuck Roll is prepared from the Chuck by removing some of the tougher neck muscles. The mix of meat, fat and connective tissue make it ideal for braising.
Chuck Ribs
Tender and flavoursome
Chuck Short Ribs are removed from the Chuck and include the ribs, intercostal muscles and a major portion of the muscle overlying the ribs. Slow cooked, beef chuck ribs are both tender and flavoursome. Grilling chuck ribs prior to consumption assists with the caramelisation of marinades and fat.
Tenderloin Steak
Tender, lean and juicy
Tenderloin Steaks are suited to grilling or pan frying and preferably served medium rare. Centre cut tenderloin portions are taken from the middle section of the tenderloin that consists of one muscle. The butt end of the tenderloin contains two other muscles that are not included when cutting centre cut steaks.
Tenderloin
One of the most tender cuts of beef
The Tenderloin is located in the hindquarter of the animal and does very little work. As a result the tenderloin is very lean and tender, and should be cooked using very hot temperatures to sear and retain moisture. A denuded tenderloin has been trimmed of the silverskin and can be roasted whole.
Thin Skirt Strips
Great in Asian or Mexican Cooking
The Thin Skirt makes up the costal muscle portion of the diaphragm. The thin membrane covering the cut keeps the muscle fibres bundled together. Best cooked using high heat when cut into thin strips and used in Asian or Mexican cooking.
Hanger steak
Versatile and full of flavour
The Hanger Steak comes from the upper (lumbar) portion of the diaphragm. Not usually known as a tender cut, the Hanger needs to be cooked quickly over a high heat. For maximum tenderness slice against the grain before serving.
Inside Skirt Strips
Great in Asian or Mexican Cooking
The Inside Skirt is attached to the abdominal wall inside the Hindquarter. The Inside Skirt is a thin muscle that is best cut into strips and cooked over a high heat for Asian stir fry's or Mexican style cooking.
Brisket
Versatile and flavoursome
Brisket consists of well exercised muscles located in chest and underside regions of the carcass. It is removed from the forequarter between the 1st rib to the 13th rib. This cut is best slow cooked and braised as it contains connective tissue that needs softening. Brisket is flavoursome and is perfect for shredding.
T-Bone Steak
An iconic steak cut
The T-bone steak consists of two primals, the Tenderloin and Striploin. Named for its T-shaped bone this steak is best grilled or barbecued.
Beef Short Ribs
Rich and full flavoured

Standing Rib Roast (OP)
A tender and succulent roast
Prepared from the Forequarter after removal of the Chuck and Brisket. The bones are frenched by removing the intercostal muscles between the ribs up to the eye. Retaining the bones helps to deliver extra flavour when cooking. Containing the cube roll which has great layers of muscle and fat, this cut makes for a spectacluar roast.
Club Steak
Best grilled or barbecued
The Club Steak is prepared from a Shortloin by the removal of the Tenderloin and protruding edges of the Chine Bone.
Striploin Roast (Sirloin)
A tender, flavoursome roast

Back Ribs

Topside
Well known as one of the leanest cuts of beef
Also known as Beef Inside. The muscles of the Topside are well exercised and therefore are quite lean and contain connective tissue. Best cooking methods for this cut as a whole portion are braising and casseroling.
Outside
To deliver maximum tenderness, carve fat side up, across the grain.
Derived from the Silverside with the Heel Muscle removed, the Outside consists of the Outside Flat and Eye Round. Consisting of well exercised and therefore dense hindquarter muscles, it is best suited to roasting or pickling.

Rump Medallions
The tenderness of a tenderloin with the flavour of rump
Beef Rump medallions are cut from the Eye of Rump where the Rostbiff has been trimmed of the 'undercut' muscles and connective tissue and portioned length-ways into logs.

Chuck Diced is used in casseroles or slow moist cooking methods such as braising. The connective tissue gently melts allowing the meat to become very tender as well as adding to the flavour.
Brisket Point End
Perfect for shreddng
Point End Brisket is part of the brisket closest to the head of the animal. Usually this is sold as 'deckle off', where the connective tissue holding the muscles to the rib cage is removed. Slow cook this cut to render down the fat and connective tissue.
Brisket Navel End
Best suited to slow and steady cooking methods
Navel End Brisket is part of the brisket closest to the navel of the animal. The Navel End Brisket usually contains more fat than the Point End Brisket. Slow cook this cut to render down the fat and connective tissue.
Outside Flat
