What is special about Longhorn beef?
Longhorn beef is fast becoming popular and enjoyed by top chefs because of its superior eating qualities. Heston Blumenthal, the world’s famous chef also uses longhorn beef. The Longhorn beef is referred to as the beef of connoisseurs because of its pleasing, lingering, long and intense taste.
The longhorn cow has characteristic horns as well as light red brindle coat, dark blue roan and a white stripe down the back. It’s an established fact that the marbling or intramuscular fat of the Longhorn meat is responsible for its tenderness, flavor, and succulence. Unlike other breeds that use up huge amounts of fat before the intramuscular fat forms, the Longhorn carcass has just enough marbling with the correct proportion of external fat.
