[Food & Beverage]
In this information age, you really don’t need to leave your house and spend hours getting caught in traffic and looking for parking while going to the supermarket or butcher’s to buy your groceries. Everything is literally at your fingertips with the advent of apps, and services available on digital platforms such as Facebook or Instagram.
I love a good steak and I recently tried out the meat delivery service by FNF Meats which is a local based company that supplies quality Halal assured meat with reasonable prices to suit different budgets. Their Halal assured offerings includes beef such as grass and/or grain fed beef from Australia, O’Connors Angus, Blackmore’s wagyu, Mayura wagyu tomahawk and more!
Oh BTW if you’re not sure what’s the difference between grain and grass fed beef, here’s the distinction:
Grain Fed – Cows are fed with grass for few months and later to grain as a staple diet. This type of beef has a unique fat to meat ratio giving it superior marbling and texture.
Grass Fed – Cows that are fed with grass and they are usually allowed to graze on a green pasture. This type of beef has a lower fat content and a distinct grassy or earthy taste.
Their concept is simple – simply browse their Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/pg/fnfmeats/), then contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 019-208 5638, tell them what you want and they’ll deliver to your doorstep!! (They currently deliver to addresses in the Klang Valley.)
The cuts of meat are vacuum packed, ensuring that they stay fresh when they get to you and even in your freezer. The added benefit is that you can cut a small hole in the plastic then add the marinade (I like to use the 1 part acid, 1 part oil and 1 part seasoning formula for marinades) to it then let it defrost. I like using a good olive oil, apple cider/ balsamic vinegar (which will help to tenderise the meat) and some spices like garlic power and paprika as a marinade but you can mix and match your own flavours.
Don’t forget to add some Murray River Gourmet Salt Flakes (http://www.murrayriversalt.com.au/) and some pepper on before cooking. The Murray River Gourmet Salt Flakes® have a delicate soft texture and is also ideal for use as a finishing salt that enhances the flavours of the food without overpowering it.
The Angus ribeye was really lovely cut with marbling running through the meat making it really tender and juicy, while the shortloin was pretty good value for money although I did spend some time charring the fat side. While I don’t eat the fat (I’m fat enough as it is!), there are other members in my household who are skinny and can afford and like to eat it.
After you eat the wagyu patties though, you’ll never look at a Chili’s/ TGI Friday’s burger the same way again (let alone McD or Ramly burgers). So juicy and tender and only RM11.00 each! Go get some quality buns, butter them up and toast them for a while, then throw on some (I prefer Monterey Jack or even cheddar) cheese and some sauteed onions, and you’ve got yourself a gourmet burger for under RM20.00!
If you’re a beef lover and you can cook beef (properly that is, and by properly I don’t mean anything over medium and definitely not well done!), you might want to try FNF Meats for quality cuts that won’t break the bank! They provide friendly and professional service right to your doorstep! It’s way cheaper than dining outside and you can impress your partner/ date with a home cooked meal that you pair with a nice bottle of red wine.
