The bat steak cut from the calf (heifer) is an insider tip among connoisseurs. It is a real delicacy that absorbs spices wonderfully and is easy to prepare. A tip: salt, sear and leave to marinate for five minutes. Then cut into slices, season with sea salt and pepper and serve with a homemade dip. Quick, simple and absolutely delicious!

Meat knowledge

The Spider Steak is obtained from the lock bone of the hind leg, which is responsible for the movement of the pelvic bone. Despite its long grain, the steak is excellent for quick grilling, but should always be cut against the grain.

Spider Steak: Juicy and tender like a fillet

What many people don't know is that the Spider Steak is very similar in tenderness to a fillet steak. The flavour is strong, wonderfully intense and yet the texture is wonderfully tender.

The steak actually owes its name to its appearance. When spread out, the steak resembles a bat or a spider's web. In Austria, the steak is therefore known as Bat Steak, in Germany it is referred to as Schulterschleim or Teflon and in the USA it is served as Spider Steak.

. What makes our Spider Steak so special?

The wonderfully pronounced marbling is a real highlight. The meat is beautifully dark and incredibly tender. But the cut is still rather unknown in Austria and Germany - unless you are part of a group of BBQ fans. They know exactly what's what and appreciate the steak for its flavour and incomparable texture.

Fitmeat meat from the calf (heifer)

You've come to the right place when it comes to quality and enjoyment. Because we pay attention to excellent results in all aspects. For example, our Spider Steaks come from Austrian heifers. They have a really good life on an idyllic family farm.

Why a Spider Steak from the calf? 

A calf, or heifer, is a female cattle that has not yet calved. The meat has a beautiful dark red colour and very fine fibres. The meat also has a special marbling that enhances the taste.

The very slow growth of the calves results in this excellent marbling, i.e. the storage of fat in the muscle. This gives the Bat Steak a remarkable tenderness and an intense, full-bodied flavour.

Natural rearing without feed additives, free range on meadows and forests, is a matter of course for us! We reject long transport routes and mass production in all its forms and always try to set an example against it. Not just for the sake of taste, but to give the animals a beautiful and species-appropriate life.

In contrast, cattle on factory farms are simply bred quickly to generate as much turnover as possible. This inhumane and deadly way of keeping animals is not only morally reprehensible, it also has a negative effect on the quality and taste of the meat. As a result, the meat is watery, has little flavour and develops no aroma when cooked.

We recommend approx. 250 - 300 g (approx. 1 - 2 pieces) per person.

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.
