Stockyard - Champion Australian Meat and Australia's Most Awarded Branded Beef Now at Huber's Butchery
With 61 years of heritage, Stockyard has established itself as a leading provider of high-quality grain-fed Angus and Wagyu products in the culinary industry. Using family farming methods of "No HGP's (Hormonal growth promotants), antibiotics and animal by-products, Stockyard is now the Champion Australian Meat and Australia's Most Awarded Branded Beef. Thanks to Huber's Butchery, who managed to clinch the exclusive distributorship in Singapore, award-winning restauranteurs and leading hoteliers can get their hands on these premium beef, including you home cooks.
I was given a chance to have a taste of Stockyard's produce at Atout, a dinner hosted by Huber's Butchery and Stockyard Stockyard. Chef Patrick Heuberger and his team had whipped up a few dishes to showcase the unique qualities of Stockyard 200-days grain-fed beef, which is one of the best-selling items at Huber’s Butchery.
As a starter, Chef Patrick Heuberger paired thinly sliced pieces of Wagyu Bresaola with mashed potatoes. Aged for 4 months, the way the Wagyu Bresaola melted in my mouth and how its concentrated flavours spread, was incredible. The mashed potato was airy with a mousse-like texture, which paired really well with the buttery bresaola.
Next up we had Chargrilled Dry-Aged Angus Patty, which can be found in Huber’s Dry Aged Beef Burger at Huber's bistro. It had a very rich mouthfeel and a more intense beefy flavour than a regular beef patty. Despite just a small portion of it, it was satiable.
As Mains, we got to try both Wet-Aged and Dry-Aged Angus T-Bone Steak, oven-roasted. The Dry-Aging process causes the meat to dehydrate, which concentrates the meat and intensifies its flavours. Hence, in comparison, the wet-aged steak on my plate did lose out in terms of the depth of flavours.
At Huber's Butchery, Wagyu Striploin MB 6-7 is also available if you are planning for an extravagant dinner. Although the marbling makes this meat quite forgiving, a higher level of 'doneness' will allow the fats to melt and realise the flavours.
Head down to Huber’s Butchery if you would like to try your hands at cooking any one of these fine quality meats by Stockyard.
