A closer look at the Flat Iron
Winner of a Silver Medal at the 2022 Outstanding New Zealand Food Producer awards. From the shoulder of the Angus, the Flat Iron has a good amount of marbling and a robust meaty flavour.
One trimmed Flat Irons steak is approximately 1 - 1.25kg of beef ready to go onto the Barbecue. Cook as a whole piece or cut Flat Iron into steaks- you can’t go wrong, as it will be more forgiving than other cuts if overcooked.
Like every other Matangi cut it holds rich 100% grass fed beef flavours enhanced by our unique 3 week dry-aging process.
The trimmed Flat Iron steaks require minimal preparation, and only requires a quick sear. Season with sea salt flakes and let it rest for an hour so the salt can infuse the meat. Baste with olive oil or clarified butter and cook in a hot cast-iron skillet or on your BBQ grill. It will take 3 to 4 minutes on each side to reach an internal temperature of 45-50°C. Take it off the heat and let it rest covered with foil for 5-10 minutes.
Season to taste and indulge!

Matangi Angus Beef is reserved for New Zealanders – meat connoisseurs, Kiwis or friends of Aotearoa who live here or visit – who want to experience the best grass-fed Angus beef.
Our meat is a luxury product perfect for special occasions. Offering a superior experience, we go the extra mile from breeding our own closed herd, with no butchering before 24 months, to hanging and dry ageing the quarters on the bone for three weeks before our in-house butchery team does the fine cutting. This produces the well marbled and succulent cuts our discerning customers expect and desire.get to know our team
The best grass-fed Angus Beef for Kiwi meat lovers.
The quality of our land is a key ingredient to raising healthy, strong and ultimately flavoursome Angus cattle. We breed and raise our animals over two properties within the Tuki Tuki catchment. Lush grass on nutritious soil, clean water in every paddock, shady trees, all contours of landscape – the perfect backdrop for contented animals. And we're constantly improving these wonderful places by planting native trees, fencing off creeks, protecting the soil and our water sources.
