OTTO Brisbane secures Australian exclusive crème of crop Rangers Valley beef
This March OTTO Brisbane will be the only restaurant in Australia where you can try one of the most coveted and unique beef in the country, OTTO Reserve by Rangers Valley.
The extraordinary beef is 270 days grain fed, 100% Black Angus cattle, with a 7+ marble score, from one of the world’s most premium producers, Rangers Valley, located in Northern NSW. Less than 1% of Rangers Valley total Angus production meets this grade, making it one of Australia’s most rare and sought after pieces of meat.
The beef which is normally reserved for VIP visitors to the farm, has been hand selected for Brisbane diners. “Will and the team at OTTO have really impressed us since they arrived on the Brisbane dining scene. From day one they were working with us on how we could offer the diners of Brisbane a product that was extraordinary. We are excited to see & taste the dishes that OTTO will create with this special type of beef.” Says Keith Howe, Managing Director, Rangers Valley Cattle station.
Head Chef Will Cowper is thrilled to be chosen to feature this premium product on the menu. “I feel honoured to be chosen to serve this very special beef to my customers. To be the only restaurant in Australia serving this product gives you a real buzz. It’s not often you get the opportunity to be apart of something so rare and unique. I’ll be specialling different cuts each day to give our customers the breath of what this animal can offer – from dry ageing certain cuts for up to 10 weeks to serving 1kg rib eye on the bone, we want to make use of the whole animal” says Will.
Through a careful selection of genetics, patience and dedication, Rangers Valley produces some of the country’s best beef, supplying many top restaurants around Australia and the globe. Maximum marbling is achieved via specialised vegetarian grain rations to ensure the cattle grow at a slow and natural rate.. This approach delivers beef products that consistently achieve high marbling scores, a trait that is normally only seen in the coveted Wagyu breed.
OTTO Reserve by Rangers Valley will be available starting March 1 and will feature as a daily special. Prime Cuts will be dry ageing this beef locally for OTTO Brisbane.
