Heggies Tips on how to spot ‘Good Beef’
- Meat should always be firm to the touch.
- The lean should be a bright red with brownish tinge. A very dark colour and dry appearance usually indicates that the meat has been cut and exposed to the air for some time, or that is from an old and inferior animal.
- The flesh should contain small flecks of fat. This is known as ‘marbling’ which produces tenderness when cooked. No amount of outside fat is a substitute for this. Very lean meat is often flavourless and tough.
- The fat should be creamy in colour, from light to dark cream. At some times of the year it can be almost yellow. This does not indicate cow beef (tough) but is due to certain breeding and feeding.
