Which area of Spain is it typical?



The exquisite Beef from Cantabria is one of the basic pillars of the gastronomy of Cantabria.

The livestock that produces the so-called 'Beef from Cantabria' are cattle born, raised and butchered in Cantabria, especially the Alpine Brown and Tudanca breeds, and also including the so-called 'High Mountain' breeds, such as the 'Monchina'. The animals are fed natural feed. The meat comes in pink tones and the fat is white or cream-colour. It is very consistent and firm to the touch; it is slightly moist, with a fine texture and an excellent taste.
