Known as ' butcher's steaks' – because butchers know quality!
It's a contradictory cut, the hanger steak. With its rich marbling and complex texture, you'd be forgiven for thinking it might be chewy. Actually, it's about as tender as beef comes. Coombe Farm organic hanger steaks are cut from the muscles that support the diaphragm on the side of the beef carcass. There's only one per animal, so traditionally they were seen as something of a perk for the butcher. It's a muscle doesn't really do much work, and rumour has it the name 'hanger' comes from the fact that the muscle just 'hangs' around. We're not 100% certain we believe that.
Hanger steak (or 'onglet', as the French call it) is a good illustration of our commitment to nose-to-tail butchery. There's a lot of meat on a beef carcass and a lot of time and work have gone into producing it. We believe that if we're going to slaughter an animal, it's only right to make full use of every part. So rather than just offering you the familiar bits and mincing up the rest, we want to reintroduce cuts that might have been forgotten but which have a lot to offer.

At Coombe Farm we believe in sustainability. And we live it. Regarding our packaging:
Your delivery box is made of 100% recycled paper and is 100% recyclable.
To keep your order frozen we use ice packs which will retain a low temperature for a long period of time. Reuse them for a picnic or simply snip, empty the water and pop in your plastic recycling.
We use paper pulp sheets to insulate the box. They are great for craft projects or can also simply be recycled with paper waste.
We deliver our organic produce Tuesday – Saturday and you will be able to choose your preferred delivery day at checkout. The delivery charge is £5.
Freezing is the most natural way of preserving food. And as here at Coombe Farm Organic we believe in slow-grown, healthy food, a form of preservation that doesn’t need artificial additives gets a big tick from us.
We use blast freezing to preserve all of our meat products. It’s done at the point of butchery, to temperatures of -26°C. This locks in all the freshness, flavour and nutritional value and means you get the longest possible shelf life at home once you’ve defrosted it.
It also guarantees it will arrive with you in tiptop condition - confidently delivering fresh meat would be much more challenging.
All of our meat is butchered in our in-house butchery by our small team. This means we have full control of what is cut and also means that we can accommodate more requests from our customers.

The tremendous natural marbling you'll see on your organic hanger steak adds fantastic succulence and sweetness. It's best cooked medium rare, so the fat has time to melt before the meat dries out. Hanger is a classic cut for steak frites as it needs only simple cooking and accompaniments to bring out its natural flavour and character. Mayo and ketchup are, of course, vital.
