We all have a personal preference of how we like our steak cooked, but which cut of beef produces the perfect steak? We are spoilt for choice here in New Zealand with such an array of delicious beef steaks available, but choosing a steak and relying on someone to cook it to your liking can be a bit hit and miss. So for a memorable steak dining experience, why not leave it to the experts and visit a steakhouse?
If you’re in Auckland get along to Jervois Steakhouse, in Herne Bay. Their menu will leave you spoilt for choice, but rest assured the friendly front of house staff will ensure you pick the correct cut for your palate. Mix and match with your favourite sauce and a couple of sides and you will leave feeling very satisfied indeed.
The steaks at Smith & McKenzie Steakhouse in Hamilton are all handpicked by their butcher and aged for 21 days to maximise flavour and tenderness. Their signature steak is a whopping 500g Hereford prime rib on the bone and slow roasted to perfection for 18 hours.
Moving South, you shouldn’t leave Christchurch without partaking in Bessie’s ‘new meat experience’. Their speciality is dry aged meat finished on a charcoal oven which imparts a unique and delicious flavour into their meat cuts. They have some outstanding cuts of Canterbury raised beef and the expertise to help you choose from their menu. So if it’s something a little bit different you are looking for, then head into central Christchurch and enjoy a unique dining experience.
