Also, if you want to learn more about steaks, Vantador’s Facebook page provides a step by step guide on the different types of steaks that’s accompanied by their texture and flavour.
Here are some of the tasting guides in summary for each types of steak in Vantador.
Full Blood Angus 200 Days
Vantador has selected this Full Blood Angus that is fed for 200 days. This extended feeding period increases the amount of intramuscular fat, which is also known as marbling. The fat packs in the flavour of the meat. Increasing the fat content through a longer feed cycle results in the unique taste and tenderness of the meat. This Australian meat presents a balanced tenderness and tasty meat.
Dry Aged Steak
Vantador is an expert when it comes to dry aged steak. Dry Aging is a process of hanging meat in a controlled environment approximately for a month, during this process, the beef's natural enzymes break down the connective tissue in the muscle, which leads to further tenderisation of the meat texture.At the same time, moisture is evaporated from the muscle, creating a greater concentration and saturation of the natural flavour.
Well, there’s no denying that a super tender steak is what most people love when it comes to this. It’s no secret wagyu is an all time favourite among many. One of it is partially due to the higher levels of intramuscular fat or marbling it has that makes the tenderness of the meat the sole reason why it is a famous steak. You are guaranteed to have a melt in your mouth dining experience.
On the other hand, Vantador has exclusively brought in a Galician blond, Rubia Gallega, which is currently being crowned as the best tasting steak in the world. Rubia Gallega is old Spanish ox that are over 8 years old, all the way up to 15 years old. This beef is known for its subtle marbling and covered by creamy fat coat. The unique taste experience is due to the natural and free way the cattle are reared. This steak has an extremely intense flavour that burst in your mouth. This steak earns the highest scoring in terms of flavouring. Bear in mind that it’s an old ox, do not expect it to be as tender as Wagyu. Plus, this steak is so rare that you can only find it in Vantador for the whole of Malaysia.
Butter Aged Wagyu
Vantador is constantly innovating themselves when it comes to their love of steak. They have now combined the idea of incorporating the tenderness of the wagyu and the intense flavour of the Rubia Gallega, all in one piece of meat. Thus, Vantador came up with the butter aged wagyu! Believe us when I say this steak is the best of both worlds. It allows you to enjoy the tenderness of the wagyu itself plus an enhanced flavour.
If you’re looking for a balanced taste and texture, you can go for the butter age wagyu. For the most tender meat, you can opt for wagyu. As for the intense flavour, it’s clear that dry aged rubia gallega is a winner.
