MERLOT STEAK

MERLOT STEAK

$18.00

$15/lb. /Approx 1.2  lb. package / 1 per package

This lean piece of meat is surprisingly tender given it’s home in the back leg of the steer. The Merlot is carefully tucked away amongst a bundle of gristle-ridden muscles, and once carefully isolated becomes the leg’s hidden gem. A juicy treat, the Merlot is ideal for fajitas when cooked to medium-rare and sliced against the grain.

There are 2 Merlot Steaks per animal.

HORMONE & ANTIBIOTIC FREE ▪ RAISED & DRY AGED IN TEXAS

Marinate or sprinkle with salt and pepper before cooking this unique leg muscle to silky perfection. Give it the high heat it craves for a good sear, then lower the heat to finish cooking this plump cut before resting and slicing. Be careful not to overcook - medium is about as far as the Merlot should go. Slice on a bias against the grain and add to stir fry or atop a salad.
