Meat knowledge

Marrow is obtained from the tubular bones of the cattle's thighs. Our animals are reared carefully and for a long time, which is why the colour of the marrow is light, yellowish and light pink. This is how you can tell the difference. As the animal ages, the marrow loses its blood-forming properties and stores more fat. If you heat the marrow well, you can also enjoy it straight, for example as a spread. It is all a matter of taste!

What can I use bone marrow for?

In addition to classic beef bouillon, bone marrow can be used to make delicious sauces, stews or reduced stocks. The marrow contained in the bones develops an unmistakable aroma. It tastes slightly nutty and spicy - just as soup should be.

Pure Bone Marrow - Preparation

Pure bone marrow can also be used in other dishes, such as risotto. As a seasoning, so to speak. In this case, the marrow can be boiled, blanched or roasted in the oven.

From nose to tail - bone marrow

A philosophy we value highly at Fitmeat is the so-called "nose to tail" movement. This is about making the most of the animal and therefore the value of the meat. Rather than just using the expensive high-end cuts, there are many other cuts that can be used to create excellent dishes.

The same goes for beef bones, for example, although they add such a distinctive flavour to dishes that they should be used much more often.

And this is not an invention of ours, but actually a very old tradition. In our grandmother's kitchen, it wasn't a soup cube that was thrown into the water, it was real bones. It took a bit longer to prepare, but everyone remembers the delicious taste.

Fun facts about beef broth

Homemade beef broth is not only delicious, it is also a popular and traditional home remedy to settle the stomach and lift the spirits. Yes, they want a bit of the flavour too.

What's more, you can make a large portion of soup and freeze it. So you always have a delicious soup on hand.

Quality is our top priority and, when it comes to beef, a few factors are crucial. These include the perfect breed of cattle, the age of the animals and optimum feeding, free from concentrated feed.

However, this alone is not enough to meet our requirements. We don't do things by halves when it comes to the quality of our meat products! That's why 100% of our animals come from Austria. The farms are located in the lake district of the Salzkammergut in beautiful Upper Austria.

At Fitmeat, we also only process the finest meat from heifers, also known as calves, and steers. The meat has a wonderful marbling and a delicious flavour. Our classic cattle breeds also include Red-Angus, Black-Angus, Charolais, Limousin, White-Blue Belgian and Wagyu, as well as various crossbreeds.

Our cattle are 4x AT labelled. This means that birth, rearing, slaughter and cutting take place 100% in Austria. The value chain therefore remains entirely in Austria. We distance ourselves from long animal transports and select our partners very carefully. We therefore rely on animals that are kept in a species-appropriate manner, born and raised by small farmers, and on butchers who know both the farmer and the animal personally.

Our butchers allow the cuts to mature on the bone for a long time. This gives us first-class, well-hung meat that does not lose any water during roasting and can be enjoyed with a clear conscience.
