Speckle Park is the new kid on the block for cattle breeds in NZ. Speckle Park cattle are 100% grass-fed, and are a species that are naturally very high in marbling. They thrive in NZ farming conditions. The scotch is juicy, flavoursome and tender, and has eating comparable to Wagyu cross breeds.
How to cook: The secret to cooking Speckle Park beef scotch is to keep things simple, it has the highest natural marbling of all cuts and has a unique grass-fed flavour and texture. Speckle Park scotch is at its most tender when the fat melts completely, so we recommend serving it medium rare. Simply season with good quality salt and freshly ground black pepper and cook in a pre-heated, greased pan over a high heat. Sear the Speckle Park on each side and check for doneness by the touch test or use a thermometer.
Remember to rest the steak for at least five minutes before enjoying this delicacy. If you can wait that long!
