Onglet 400g

£10.00

Onglet steak is the French name for this cut, which is also known in English as hanger, or butcher’s steak. The latter refers to butchers who recognised its superior flavour and were therefore unlikely to put it on display, as they preferred to keep it for themselves. This cut of beef is flat, as it comes from the diaphragm or lower belly. It is very loosely textured and has a big, beefy flavour. The full taste has overtones of liver and kidney. It therefore goes exceedingly well served with highly flavoured sauces.

Cook onglet steak over a high heat, either under a grill, in a pan or on a barbecue. Coat with olive or other oils before cooking, and avoid turning the steak constantly – once is enough. Do not press down on the steak while cooking, as this expresses moisture. Lastly, season it after cooking, while the steak is resting. Cut into finger-wide slices, from top to bottom across the grain, just before serving.

 

We source local meat from farms in Wiltshire, Somerset and the South West. The Black Farmer makes sure that we get the absolute best and most sustainable breeds for the season. Our free range cows feed on grass and lead happy lives in the great British countryside. By working with local produce and farmers, we promote and encourage a sustainable and ethical approach to meat eating. This reduces animal stress and lowers food miles as much as possible.

 

Even the best meat still requires expert preparation, so we work with master butchers who ensure our onglet steak is carefully aged in ideal conditions. This is central to maintaining the quality you expect.

 

We vacuum pack our onglet steak to keep the meat fresh for longer. This also means it is suitable for home freezing, just make sure you defrost it properly.

Method:

1. Marinade the meat 1 hour before you would like to eat it. Grab a liberal bunch of herbs, bruise them with your hands and rip them up. Season the meat heavily with the salt, pepper and herbs and drizzle with olive oil. Rub into the meat, and leave at room temperature
2. Light your barbecue
3. When the coals are white and searingly hot, and all your accompaniments are ready, place your steaks on the griddle. Sear each side for 2 minutes at the most. Then transfer your steaks to a warm plate to rest for 4. Serve. When eating the steak cut across the grain to ensure that it is at its most tender
