Once you go black you never go back! | Les Gastronomes

When we go to grocery store to buy beef or order beef at a restaurant we are not very concerned about the source. Few connoisseurs are interested in knowing about breeds of cattle and grading processes. 
But when marketing giants start throwing at us the word “ANGUS” the confusion is guaranteed. What if I tell you that our puppies & kittens have the option of Black Angus food?  


What is Angus?

Aberdeen-Angus the world’s finest beef with world recognition for its quality meat. 
Angus is a breed of cattle and doesn’t imply a quality of beef. 
It has nothing to do organic, natural marbled or any other labelling given to the meat. 
Angus is originally from Scotland; therefore, it is called Aberdeen Angus. But it is only in the 19th century that the breed was exported, and American Angus Association was created (1880’s). 
There are Black and Red Angus breed, but only Black Angus is supported by associations.


Cerfication summary

As per the US certification, “To earn the Certified Angus Beef ® brand name, cattle must first be Angus-influenced, with a predominantly black coat, minimum 50%.”

While the Australian certification requires a “Minimum 75% Angus breed content”. This means that when ordering angus beef this is never a 100% Angus Breed.

But our Black Onyx Angus is 100% Angus Breed!

Why to choose Angus?

Angus breed develops better marbling than most cattle. Marbling is the amount of intramuscular fat.

Marbling improves flavor, tenderness, and keeps meat moist while cooking (especially at high temperatures). 
US & Australia have different marbling scores which we will touch upon in a different post. 

Why Choose Black Onyx Angus Beef:

Black Onyx Angus Beef has a Marble Score of 3+ (MB3+), The Marbled Beef all others are compared to. It’s special because it’s pure, and pure Black Angus beef is hard to come by!

A Superior Taste: A taste that truly memorable feasts are made of hearty rich flavor, exquisitely fine marbling (a marble score of 3+), tender juiciness and that moment of truth: it really is some of the best beef you’ve ever eaten.

Fine Marbling: Grain fed for 270+ days. That’s a long time to enjoy the finest of vegetarian grain feed and ever so slowly develop the luxuriously fine marbling Black Onyx beef is regarded for. This slow process means our cattle grow at a slow, natural rate, similar to that of a pasture fed animal.

Premium Flavor: Marbling is king when it comes to flavor and texture. The unique flavor and aroma compounds of beef are held in the marble fat. So naturally, the finer and more even the marbling, the more satisfying the eating experience. 

Black Onyx Angus is: Hormone Growth Promotant FREE & GMO FREE
