Meat

Origin of Angus meat

In the 1523 in the Scottish counties Aberdeen and Forfarshire, part of which was know as Angus, a type of hairy, black coated beef cattle was found. Due to its notable attributes it soon became popular in Great Britain, Ireland, The United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Argentina and the rest of the world.

In 1879, more than 120 years ago, Mr Carlos Guerrero imported the first Aberdeen Angus reproductors to Argentina, all the way from Scotland. The promising future of our breeding, was stimulated by the incorporation of cattle with selected blood with British roots, this improved the rodeos criollos and cuarterones, with low levels of productivity. Owing to its own productive aptitudes and because of the unbeatable quality of its meat, Aberdeen Angus became succesful over all of Argentina and became recognised as THE LEADING STOCK.

 

Lamb from Sierra de Segura

Segureña lambs are considered an ecotype made from “entrefino” selected since the 13th century in the old sea province of Segura de la sierra (where oragraphically Albacete, Almeria, Granada, Jaen and Murcia meet).

This rustic race adapts to ecologic changes and the lambs grow well with the milk produced by their mothers who dedicate themselves exclusively to feeding their offspring.

 

Types of Argentinian cuts

Vacio: Cut in the lateral of the hindquarters of the animal, between the ribs and the hips. Juicy and fibrouts, when it is roasted a membrane covers it.

Entraña: Part of the diaphragm next to the ribs. It is a popular cut because of the quickness with wich it is cooked but it must be juicy. Argentinians prefer other cuts such as vacio or tira de asado.

Tira de Asado: Cut with an electric saw in strips of 3 to 5cm of thickness perpendicular to the bones. It is a cut from the external part of the cow. The first ribs are the tasties because there is less fat. From the fourth rib onwards they are thicker and more fatty.

Bife de chorizo: Before it is cut it is triangular and cylinderlike in shape. The equivalent cut in Spain is the chop.
