Technically a sub-primal, the Sirloin is the hip section of the cattle, located behind the Short Loin and in front of the Round. Our 90/10 ground beef uses sirloin because this well-worked muscle group yields a lean but flavorful cut and produces a ground product that has a bold, beefy flavor but is relatively low in fat.
For centuries, Uruguay has been at the forefront of sustainable cattle ranching, long before “sustainability” became a buzzword. Sitting atop one of the largest freshwater aquifers on Earth and free of environmental pollution, its vast pastures are the perfect environment for raising cattle. Here, we partner with small family farms, where gauchos meticulously care for both their herds of Black Angus cattle and the treasured pastures they graze on. The cattle spend their entire lives grazing exclusively on this nutrient rich grass. The end product is a rich and tender beef, leaner than its grain-finished counterpart and high in Omega-3 fatty acids.
