All our steaks are select U.S. Choice and Prime three-year-old grain-fed beef, the best quality of meat any where. After starting with the best beef, we age our steaks a minimum of 4-6 weeks for tenderness and flavor, then we'll trim and season them to be flame-broiled on our specially built open-pit mesquite wood fire.
The Texas Cattle Company steers clear of fancy cooking methods, flame-broiling our steaks over a natural wood-burning fire made from Texas grown Mesquite wood. It's more trouble to get the wood, but we think the extra effort can be tasted. Oak and orange wood are the other hard wood materials carefully chosen for full flavor enhancement.
Wait until you taste mesquite wood flame-broiling... a recently rediscovered 500 year old grilling secret of Mexico's Yaqui Indians. Mesquite burns three time hotter than petroleum-based briquettes, while eliminating the hint of petroleum odor. This incredibly hot burning sears and seal in the natural steak juices fast, protecting and preserving the flavor of perfectly aged and seasoned steaks.
We believe in returning to an ", era of simplicity", in dining. Steaks are what we do best, and we think serious steak lovers will agree once they taste our open-pit mesquite charcoal broiling. There's more to a steak than sizzle, and that's what we've got rounded up for you steak lovers at the Texas Cattle Company.
