T Bone Steak:
The T Bone in the middle of the steak is perfect to add flavour to the meat when cooking because cooking on the bone is always better!
The best things about a T Bone Steak are you get the best of two steaks; the soft Fillet Steak & the juicy Sirloin Steak all on the bone for extra flavour! The fillet has a little fat marbling but is the softest beef steak, & the Sirloin has the thin fat around the outside edge for added flavour with a consistent texture that has great flavour.
Cooking a T Bone Steak is very easy, you can cook under the grill, fry on a skillet or large pan & you can cook wrapped in the oven after sealing in the pan. One of the best ways to cook a T bone Steak is on the BBQ because the tender meat will absorb the smokey aromas to give a truly enhanced taste!
A good T bone Steak needs to be aged on the bone before it is ready to cut into steaks. Once the loins of beef have been selected, they are hung in the deep chill for 21 days before they are cut. Our expert butchers then trim the loins to remove any unwanted dark areas, then they cut into the generous thick steaks that are then ready to cook. These steaks are then packed into twin packs separated by a thin film to enable you to separate them when getting them out of the freezer.
The process of ageing beef or any meat only helps to enhance the flavour & soften the texture. The natural enzymes found in meat helps to breakdown the natural fibre of the meat to become more tender, & through this process, it unlocks the flavour to let the juices flow naturally. Making sure we have this process completed before any cutting, allows us to be able to create the perfect steak for a home that is good enough to be on any restaurant menu.
The temperature of our cutting rooms is very cold & this helps to stop any natural bacteria growth in the meat & losing any of its natural juices. Under these temperatures, we cut & package our steaks within a few minutes to make sure we can deliver the freshest, juiciest steaks possible. This gives your steaks a longer shelf life with more of a natural flavour.
We vacuum seal the T bone Steak in recyclable pouches which gently holds the shape & the vacuum process sucks all the moisture into the steak before freezing. They are vacuum-sealed in singles for your convenience & ease of storage, they can be bought up to room temperature in the clear pouches to prevent them from drying out before cooking. Our natural Grass-Fed beef is an excellent source of vitamins, minerals & protein, these are all locked by the packaging to ensure your steak delivers something healthy every time.
We are always looking to find other methods of packaging that is cheaper & more Eco-friendly, so we can then help improve the environment moving towards a greener future. We are now using a thinner, stronger packaging that is also recyclable which helps us to reduce our carbon footprint by using less plastic. As our customers recycle their food packaging more by making sure that it is placed onto the appropriate recycling collection bin, this also helps towards our Greener Policy.
The process from farm to fork is designed to maximise value for money & minimise waste, with welfare & the environment top of the list.

Just bring up to room temperature, lightly season, either under the grill, pan-seared, or on the BBQ, cook till you have your preferred “Doneness”, let the steak rest for 10 mins, then just serve & enjoy.
Letting the steak “rest” allows the muscle fibres to relax & absorb the natural meat juices for the best results, all top chefs will do this before serving a delicious steak.
