May 19, 2008 | By

It’s official. All at braindead mansions have unanimously voted Aberdeen Angus the best beef in the world.
Aberdeen Angus Beefsteak
Beef derived from this noble breed of cattle is, in our humble opinions, of far higher quality than beef derived from other breeds. Our extensive beef research has been painstakingly carried out over a number of years. We’ve been test-cooking and eating beef steaks from a variety of breeds and international sources in our quest for the best of the best and our conclusion is that Aberdeen Angus beef is consistently the tastiest beef available today. It’s no surprise that Black Angus cattle are the most popular beef cattle in the United States.

One of our favourite Aberdeen Angus beef steak recipes uses a shot of Scotch whisky for a slightly different flavour:

Ingredients (serves two):

2 x 6oz to 8oz Aberdeen Angus fillet steaks
About 2oz of butter
1 x medium onion, chopped
Approximately ΒΌ pint of beef stock (Oxo)
Black pepper
Around 4 tablespoons of double cream
1 x wee dram of Scotch whisky

Here’s how to cook your Aberdeen Angus steaks:

  1. Melt the butter and then blanche the chopped onions.
  2. Add the steaks and cook each side until they are cooked as desired.
  3. Remove the steaks to a warmed plate and set aside.
  4. Add the stock and whisky to the pan and cook until thick.
  5. Finally, stir in the double cream, add the seasoning and heat gently.

Serve with mashed or pan fried potatoes, broccoli or asparagus.
