Premium Quality Club Steak: A Cut Above the Rest

When it comes to premium beef cuts, the Club Steak stands tall among the crowd. This exquisite piece of meat, is a culinary delight that deserves a special place on your dining table. In this comprehensive guide, we delve deep into the world of Club Steak, exploring its origins, unique characteristics, and the perfect way to prepare it to perfection.

Unravelling the Club Steak

The Club Steak, often referred to as the "king of steaks," is a cut that exudes luxury and flavour. Named after the esteemed country clubs where it gained popularity among affluent Americans, this cut hails from the rear portion of the beef loin, just behind the ribeye. It is renowned for its distinct L-shaped bone.

It's worth noting that the Club Steak doesn't include a Filet portion, as seen in its counterpart, the T-Bone Steak. However, the Striploin in this cut more than compensates for it. Its exquisite tenderness and flavour make it a prime choice for discerning palates.  The Club Steak, with its flavourful bone-in section, offers a delightful dining experience and is notably easier to cook compared to its counterparts.

The Origin of Our Club Steak

Not all beef qualifies for our exclusive Dry Aged Beef selection. At Gourmet-Experts, we exclusively offer carefully curated cuts such as the Striploin in top-notch Dry Aged quality. Our meat comes exclusively from Heifers, a term used to describe female cows that have not yet calved. Unlike young bulls, Heifers have inherently higher intramuscular fat content from the beginning. This feature results in a consistent marbling throughout the meat, delivering a wonderfully tender, juicy, and aromatic Club Steak.

As a premium meat supplier, we source only the finest heifers, ensuring top-quality. Post-slaughter, the beef cuts are categorized based on various quality criteria, and we select only the best, upholding our commitment to excellence.

The Art of Dry Aging

The magic of Dry Aged Beef lies in the carefully controlled aging process within our butchery's cold room, lasting a minimum of 56 days on the bone. Dry Aged Beef is a nod to traditional meat aging techniques, reminiscent of the days of our ancestors. Unlike the now common method of Wet-Aging, where meat is aged in vacuum-sealed bags, Dry Aging involves open-air hanging of the meat on the bone.

Our commitment to quality extends beyond the plate. Our steak is frozen at a bone-chilling -48°C, preserving its freshness and taste until it reaches your kitchen.
