GIBSONS STEAK BLOG
When making a dirty martini, picking the proper olive brine is essential. You can opt for the brine from olives you buy in the store, but that can be oily and a little salty. With the rise of craft cocktails, every ingredient has been looked at and refined, even olive brine.
Gibsons Wet-Aged Steaks
Gibsons has been the gold standard for steaks in Chicago, the midwest and across the nation. We continually assess our suppliers, butchers and ranchers to make sure only the highest quality of cuts make it on the menu.
Classic Cocktails to Pair with Your Steak
It might not seem like it, but knowing how to correctly craft a classic cocktail is important. Let's be honest, a well-crafted drink by a good bartender can really turn your day around.
Age matters. To achieve maximum flavor, Gibsons Grassfed Australian steaks are wet-aged to a minimum of 75 days. Like a fine wine, steak only gets better with age. During our 75-day aging process, enzymes have time to break down the sinuous muscle fibers creating an incredibly tender steak. Only the finest cuts of beef are chosen to be aged for this length of time. Enjoy the sophisticated flavor Gibsons is known for.
Our GGA beef is sourced from the top 5% of all grassfed cattle produced in Southeast Australia and raised with zero antibiotics. Free-range cattle produce better beef. Open grazing lands provide a sustainable, natural, and stress-free grazing environment for our GGA beef cattle. This is partly why our Australian beef is widely recognized for exceptional flavor, consistency, and quality.
Gibsons Prime Angus is USDA Certified Prime Beef that is sourced from a carefully selected list of producers in the upper Midwest. The cattle that are raised in this region are far superior in taste, tenderness and consistency. Gibsons Prime Angus Beef is grain-fed for up to 120 days and aged for a minimum of 45 days. Gibsons works closely with the packers and meat cutters to manage the aging process and deliver an unmatched level of quality. (All GPA is wet-aged with the exception of the Gibsons Tomahawk and Gibsons Italia Large Porterhouse)
