Crystal Dragon & Red Ginger Offer Australian Grass-Fed Beef Specials
The premium flavor, leaner meat quality and over-all healthy benefits of hormone-free and antibiotic-free certified Australian grass-fed beef is the focus of the curated lunch and dinner a la carte menus currently offered in two of City of Dreams Manila’s signature restaurants – Crystal Dragon and Red Ginger. The promotion is held in conjunction with the Australian Embassy in the Philippines, Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade), Victorian State Government, and Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA) with participating outlets in the city.
Crystal Dragon’s exclusive a la carte menu, available until August 23, highlights chef de cuisine Chan Choo Kean’s creations using traditional Cantonese and Chinese cooking techniques. During the entire promotion, six exceptional fare are on the menu: Crispy Crystal Beef Rump Sliced with Manuka Honey and Fragrant Sesame Seed, Smoked Tea Beef Short Ribs Served with Pickles and Fried Homemade Bun, Wok-fried Grass-fed Beef Tenderloin with Asparagus in Sichuan Pepper Sauce, Stir-fried Diced Grass-fed Beef Sirloin with Vegetables and Mushrooms Served in Crispy Golden Cup, and Pan-fried Grass-fed Beef Sirloin Rolled with Enoki Mushrooms in Barbeque Sauce.
For diners seeking Southeast Asian cuisine, Red Ginger’s selection will incorporate regional flavors and spices complementing Australian grass-fed beef. Four a la carte dishes created by the restaurant’s chef de cuisine Sam Kin Hue will be made available during the promotion until July 17, comprising of: Char-grilled Mulwarra Beef Tenderloin Steak (served with Balado sambal sauce, hand-cut potato wedges, and tossed green beans); Vietnamese Beef “Luc Lac” (wok-flamed beef cube roll with watercress and rocket salad); Indonesian Beef Satay (with Sambal Matah, roasted eggplant, crispy shallots, and steamed Jasmine rice); and Thai Beef Massaman Curry (slow-cooked beef oyster blade in fragrant cashew and spice paste, coconut cream, and steamed Jasmine rice).
Grass-fed beef comes from cows that eat a natural diet of grass throughout its life, compared to the more common grain and supplements-fed cattle. This makes it a healthier protein. Benefits include less overall fat, more heart-friendly Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids, more conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) to reduce heart disease and cancer risks, more precursors such as Vitamin A and E, as well as cancer-fighting antioxidants compared to grain-fed meat.
