What is this type of beef and why it’ s worth including it in our diet!
Black Angus beef is considered as one of the best breeds of cattle in the world, producing top meat quality. This breed comes from the Aberdeen Angus breed, a native breed of cattle in Scotland, but as a type of livestock, is now bred all over the world.
BLACK ANGUS, THE “MARBLED” BEEF AND HOW to RECOGNIZE IT
The color of its flesh is obviously darker and the layer of visible fat is thinner, compared to other types of beef. When observing its morphology one can distinguish bright white stripes and the fine grains, which make it look like a marble slab. Hence the characterization as… “marbled”!
This marbled morphology is the result of the even way in which its fat is distributed. And it is precisely this characteristic of the even distribution of fat, that makes it stand out in terms of quality and taste, as a kind of meat that is extremely juicy, tender and delicious.
