quality Aussie beef and lamb for every occasion

In this new series, we’re shining a spotlight on some #Aussome dishes chefs are cooking up around the country with True Aussie Beef and Lamb. These chefs are featuring high-quality, sustainable and grassfed proteins in a wide array of different forms, well beyond the standard steaks and chops. It’s about meeting modern diners where they are and making full use of the cuts, cooking techniques and cuisines in the chef’s toolkit. Though all very different, you’ll see a common thread of affordability, dynamite presentation, bold flavor and, of course, deliciousness, all at a food cost designed to be profitable.
