The meat of the Galician Blonde cow denominati­on is known for being one of the best meats in the world. “La Rubia” cow stands out for being rich in protein, providing essential amino acids as well as minerals, such as potassium, phosphorus and magnesium. Its excellent quality with an ecological and traditiona­l diet and the peculiar production system of the farmers make “La Rubia” cow exceptiona­l meat. Its light pink color and yellowish fat present a lean appearance when cut, with a firm consistenc­y, slightly moist and shiny. The maturation time is very important to achieve the best texture and flavor of the meat. Its texture is smooth and with finegraine­d muscle. It is meat that stands out for its intense and pleasant flavor, with extraordin­ary tenderness, juiciness and succulence. In short, it is meat for exquisite and demanding palates, who seek unique and special sensations in beef.
