Meat knowledge

The topside (trimmed) is a lean piece of hindquarter meat, perfect for beef steaks, beef roulades and beef tartar.

. Prepared as a whole, it also makes an excellent roast. The fibres run evenly in one direction, giving a great texture to the meat. This means that when you are ready to carve, the meat is easy to slice.

The division of the beef rind

The topside, located on the inside of the leg, is divided into three parts:
The top, with its coarse fibrous structure, the leg topside and the trimmed topside.

In general, the meat from the topside is perfect for roulades and escalopes. However, our Topside trimmed is finer grained and leaner than the Topside. This means it also makes a wonderful roast.

What makes Topside trimmed so special?

The term "calf" or "heifer" refers to female cattle that have not yet calved. The meat has a beautiful dark red colour and very fine fibres. The meat also has a special marbling which enhances the flavour.

This excellent marbling, i.e. the storage of fat in the muscle, is due to the very slow growth of the calves. Although the topside trimmed is a lean cut, it has a remarkable tenderness and a full-bodied aroma.

We recommend one kilogram of the trimmed Topside for about four people.

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.
