AUSTRALIAN GRASSFED BEEF ON THE MENU PROMOTION at MANILA, CEBU AND DAVAO RESTAURANTS

The promotion is presented by the Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade), the Victorian State Government, and Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA). It will run from 20 June to 20 August.


Australian Ambassador to the Philippines Amanda Gorely invites diners to experience the different ways Australian grass fed beef is prepared in customised menus by the participating restaurants -from steaks, meat pies, burgers, pasta dishes, among others, served in a la carte and buffet menus.

Australia is the leading source of grassfed beef, as 97% of its cattle are grassfed. Australian grassfed beef is considered as the healthier beef, as 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.

A culinary experience awaits diners in Metro Manila, Cebu and Davao as over 60 restaurants participate in the second Australian Grass Fed Beef on the Menu Promotion. The first Australian grassfed beef experience was offered to Manila diners in 2015 but this year, it has been expanded outside Manila.

In this campaign we have set our own schedule date to choose which restaurants are we going to visit.

July 04, 2017 Tuesday - four restaurants we have visit namely True Grill, Crystal Dragon & Red Ginger, Black Bird, and Green Pasture.

This four mention restaurants participates in the promotion of Australian Grass Fed Beef. On the later part I will highlight the menus they offer with Australian Grass Fed Beef.

The first restaurants we visit is the True Grill located at B. Valdez, Poblacion, Makati


TRUEGRILL is a great STEAKHOUSE but described simply as a MEAT LOVERS'CAFE. Some people sometimes feel intimidated when they see a restaurant described as a Steakhouse. For them, a Steakhouse is automatically associated with very expensive steak dinners or steak lunches. In fact, the opposite is true.


Many of their customers find that their steak prices are easily at least one-half the prices in five star hotels. And again as many of their customers will say, the quality of their steaks can even surpass the quality of Chef-inspired steak recipes in top hotels. To make people more comfortable with their menu, They have included a variety of items such as their 100% Pure Angus Burgers, Quick Dine-In and Take-Out Meals, Steak Sandwiches, Pasta dishes and even some Filipino cuisine dishes.


But their greatest pride lies in their Great Southern Pinnacle Ribeye Steak sourced from the biggest meat processor and exporter in all of Australia, JBS Australia. While the US grading system is broken down into Select, Choice and Prime, the Australian grading system as evaluated by Meat Standards Australia is based on EATING QUALITY and ranges from 3, 4 and the highest grade at 5. Their Pinnacle Ribeye is almost always at Grade 5. There are many cuts of Australian beef, prime and non-prime, but their Pinnacle Ribeye Steak is by far the best among the best.

Grass-fed beef comes from cows that eat a natural diet of grass throughout its life, compared to the more common grain and supplements-fed cattle. This makes it a healthier protein. Benefits include less overall fat, more heart-friendly Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids, more conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) to reduce heart disease and cancer risks, more precursors such as Vitamin A and E, as well as cancer-fighting antioxidants compared to grain-fed meat.
