Foodies all over Metro Manila are in for a culinary experience as more than 35 top restaurants participate in the first-ever Australian Grass-Fed Beef promotion. These dining establishments will showcase a wide variety of dishes that uses Australian grass-fed beef, which have been raised exclusively on natural pastures. 

Choose from a wide variety of dishes using customized menus carefully prepared by some of the top chefs in the city. Ordering these may get you a chance to win P5,000 dining privileges or round-trip tickets for two to Australia via Qantas Airways. This promotion, jointly presented by the Australian Trade Commission (Austrade), Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA), and the State of Victoria, is ongoing until August 23, 2015.

Anthony Weymouth, Austrade Senior Trade Commissioner, confirmed that there is a growing demand for quality beef in the Philippines, "and this promotion reiterates the fact that Australia is in the best position to provide this, as Australia produces premium quality beef that suits the Filipino taste and budget."

I agree with Mr. Weymouth because I have been buying and cooking different cuts of Australian beef in the past year for my family. The cost is not as high as I previously expected imported beef to be and the meat is way more tender than any of the local beef I've bought in the past. (Read my other blog posts on Aussie beef, here.)

According to MLA Country Manager Paul Perez, "the promotion reinforces Australia's position as the best place to raise beef cattle as its climate and environment provides the perfect growing conditions to raise premium beef."

In Australia, 97% of cattle are located in grass-fed environments. They are described as "grass-fed," "pasture-fed," or "free range." Kindly note though that this is not the same as "organic." Additionally, livestock that graze on pastures absorb a pigment from the grass called carotene, which results in fat that has a yellowish tone but this has no effect on quality. 

What food lovers need to know is that Australian grass-fed beef is seen as an important component to a healthy diet because it is naturally low in fat and cholesterol, while offering a high level of Omega 3 fatty acids known to lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of certain cancers.  

Recently, I got to dine on several flavorful dishes made with Australian grass-fed beef in four restaurants located in Makati. I visited Chef Jessie Rockwell Club, People's Palace in Greenbelt, Carpaccio Ristorante Italiano in Yakal St., and Prime 101 in Pasong Tamo. All of them served awesome food with unbelievably tender and flavorful Aussie beef. I'll be uploading a separate blog post about the individual, mouthwatering dishes we tried in each establishment and share with you my most recommended ones. Please stay tuned for that.
