Good news for those who like their meal to sparkle! Sainsbury’s has launched a new range of Taste the Difference steaks, which can be bought along with edible gold leaf sheets priced at £3 a pack.

The glittering trend started in Silicon Valley restaurants and has crossed the Atlantic to Sainsbury’s stores, ready for our plates.
 
The new cuts of meat in the range are:

  • Taste the Difference British Bone in Ribeye Steak – serves two, matured for 30 days and best cooked medium
  • Taste the Difference British Bone in Sirloin Steak – serves two, matured for 30 days and best cooked medium rare
  • Taste the Difference British Picanha Steak – serves one, this tender cut popular in Brazil is matured for 30 days and best cooked medium rare
  • By Sainsbury’s Flat Iron Steak – serves one, matured for 21 days and best cooked medium rare

Rebecca Deeley at Sainsbury’s comments: “We know that a steak dinner is now much more of an occasion, and many of our customers are seeking inspiration from restaurants for on-trend cuts and accompaniments to try something new.  Applying our edible gold leaf over a perfectly seared and succulent steak can quickly transform a classic evening meal into something truly sensational!”

Sparkly food is definitely on the menu this autumn with Tesco launching its rare gold-flecked gourmet avocado this week.
