Our Story

Our story begins in Nebraska shortly after Nebraska became a state in 1867. Like many families, we stopped our trip short in the fertile Platte Valley and put down roots.

Raising cattle has always been our first love but we are no stranger to raising corn to keep our cattle fed. Over the years we’ve weathered storms that both mother nature and the stock market have sent our way. We are Nebraska Cattlemen and we are damn proud of what we do and have built. When you buy steaks from us you’re also buying a piece of our heritage and history that is as old as the home of premium beef, Nebraska. Meet Our Team

When your beef arrives

Inspection

Make sure your steaks are frozen when they arrive (they may be a little soft on the edges, but they should be cold and firm). DO NOT TOUCH any remaining dry ice – it can burn your skin. Keep steaks frozen for up to 12 months (in factory packaging).

Thawing

DO NOT remove from cryo-vac (factory packaging). Thaw steaks SLOWLY (overnight in refrigerator or in a pan of cool water). NEVER EVER thaw steaks in a microwave.

Seasoning

Bring steak to room temperature while in factory packaging. Remove from package and pat dry. Season lightly with a dry seasoning (salt & pepper or your favorite NSB seasoning).

Cooking

SEAR in a HOT pan – quickly make each side look somewhere between cooked and burned. Finish to an internal temperature of 125° F in a preheated 400° F oven or grill for medium rare. REST uncovered for 5 to 7 minutes.
