Most of the Australian cattle are pasture-raised. As compared to grain fed beef, grass fed beef has a wider variety of complex flavours, textures and tenderness due to the seasonal and geographic factors. Grass-fed beef tends to be leaner and the fat colour tends to be more yellow or creamy in appearance when compared to grain fed beef.
Sirloin is often the leaner parts of a steak with low fat content. The low fat content causes the flavor not so robust as compared to ribeye.
