Our 10 step guide.
We are all excited for restaurants to re-open. The anticipation! Then you make a decision that will change your evening and your view of steak. You have been waiting for months to have that perfectly cooked steak but you chose the restaurant down the road because the steak is £5 cheaper than the one you really like further away – and steak is steak, isn’t it?
You tuck into the steak waiting for the first flavour, the caramelisation to hit you – the sweetness created by the heat and the fat, a scientific compound of joy... but there is nothing.
You chew the meat, lusting for the explosion of succulence and beef but the wait yields no delight. The meat is tasteless, soft and goes to cotton wool in your mouth leading you to grab for the water.
The after taste stays with you long before the pain of the cheap bill recedes in your mind.
Pre-Covid, we at Aubrey Allen would delight in inviting students and experienced chefs alike to our Academy and educate them in the ways of Beef.
This culminated in them doing a taste test between a well-known leading and respected supermarket and our beef. The results were always astounding and always the same – the Aubrey Allen beef was licked clean of the plate whilst the supermarket proclaimed ‘Best of British’ withered in its own limp state. People often ask “What’s the difference between your meat and supermarket meat?” – we believe the results of the steak tasting test speak for themselves.
Here are 10 facts about beef and Aubrey Allen that you may not know:
So next time you go somewhere, try the steak test, learn and share. We believe great British beef should be celebrated and we should reward farmers for rearing beef that gives the most flavour leaving you happy every time you dine out or dine in with us. All the steaks included in our steak boxes and Build your own Box are selected to the very highest standards of ethically produced meat. They are then cared for and crafted in a time honoured way to create the best tasting steaks and help to create memorable meals.
