Beef from Galicia




Beef from Galicia is the most characteristic expression of regional livestock production and is yet another example of the gastronomical wealth of Galicia.

Beef from Galicia comes exclusively from cattle of the Rubia Gallega, Northwest Brown breeds, crosses between them and crosses of the first generation of males from these breeds with females from the Frisian and Alpine Brown breeds. The Rubia Gallega breed, native to the north-west part of the peninsula, is especially outstanding. They are animals with robust, strong frames, then skin, short blond or cinnamon coloured hair, which are raised primarily for their meat. Production includes the slaughter and butchering operations. The colour of the meat varies from light pink to light red. It stands out for its intense, pleasant taste and for being extraordinarily tender, juicy and succulent. It also possesses unbeatable sensorial characteristics since it comes from very young animals, fed a traditional high-quality diet and raised on family farms by the families themselves.
