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 spider steak is very similar in tenderness to a fillet steak. Its 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 known as Schulterschleim or Schieferfleisch 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 one of the more unknown in Austria and Germany - unless you are in a circle of BBQ fans. They know exactly what's what and appreciate the steak for its flavour and incomparable texture.

Fit meat from straw pig
That's why our Spider Steak is brilliant! 

You've come to the right place when it comes to quality and enjoyment. We strive for excellence in every aspect of our business. That's why our bat steaks come from Austrian Gustino straw pigs. They lead a really good life on an idyllic family farm.

There they grow up in small groups, have plenty of room to play and socialise, can cuddle in the straw and simply feel very comfortable. Slaughter takes place either on the farm or at a nearby butchery or abattoir. This minimises the stress on the animals and the quality of the meat is correspondingly high.

Per person approx. 250-300g (approx. 1-2 pieces)

Pigs are extremely intelligent and clean animals. Therefore, species-appropriate and caring rearing is the be-all and end-all for us. A requirement that is also reflected in the delicious taste.

If you compare pigs from factory farms, for example, one thing is immediately clear: due to the constant stress, the meat is much firmer, loses a lot of water when roasted and hardly has any flavour of its own.

For us at Fitmeat, this type of rearing is out of the question for many reasons. We fight for animal welfare and the appreciation of meat products and strictly distance ourselves from immoral factory farming.

After careful and stress-free individual slaughtering of the pigs, our butchers allow the straw pigs to mature on the bone for a few days. The result is juicy and tender pieces of pork with a wonderful meat flavour.
