    Additional Information

    Occasionally we like to share chef secrets with you. And the hanger steak is a good one. This cut is sometimes called “butcher’s steak” because the butcher usually brings it home, and the customers never see it. It is tender, flavorful and more affordable than other beef cuts.

    It's a winner in every respect. Popular around the world, the hanger steak is easy to cook and quite versatile; just a quick sear in a hot pan is all it needs.

    Do note, this cut demands a little attention in the way of trimming the fat. But it rewards with tender texture and intense beefy flavor.

    Truth be told, the hanger steak is a staff favorite for a quick lunch at the D'Artagnan office. There, the secret is out.

    Just imagine if you could raise a steer from birth on the grass in your own back yard, and then feed it locally-grown alfalfa hay, barley and corn for a few months. You could guarantee it never got any animal by-products in the feed, nor any hormones or antibiotics. Well, that’s exactly what our ranchers do –but in a 10,000-acre backyard in the hills of central Oregon.

    Nearly twenty years ago a group of conscientious cattle ranchers formed a cooperative to focus on humane care for the animals, and the highest quality finished product.

    Their Black Angus and Angus-cross cattle range over pasture land for most of their lives, and are then rounded up and fed a supplement of alfalfa hay, barley and corn for a few months in a spacious, dry, low-stress feeding facility, before processing (usually at about 2 years of age). The 100% vegetarian feed is supplemented with vitamin E and A which helps strengthen natural immunities.

    To the ranchers, humane treatment is of paramount importance, so every care is taken, even in transporting the cattle short distances. They know exactly where each animal comes from, and can track it from birth to processing, all of which takes place in the great Northwest. Each animal comes with an affidavit that proves that the rancher followed the strict natural protocols of the cooperative.

    Each rancher in the cooperative works with Soil and Water Conservation District and utilizes range conservation practices to ensure the long-term health of the streams, springs, grasslands and eco-systems.

    Trim the fat off, and use your favorite marinade; then sear it quickly in a hot pan until medium rare. Serve with pan juices and duck fat french fries, or cut into strips to top a salad, rice dish or fill fajitas or tacos.

    Our Beef

    Our marbled and flavorful beef comes from cattle raised exclusively for D’Artagnan by a cooperative of ranchers committed to strict protocols of humane animal husbandry. No antibiotics, hormones or steroids are ever used, which means the cattle take a little longer to come to market, but that’s fine with us. A stress-free lifestyle produces tasty results.
