Buy beef

Following requests for beef, we have just (June 17th 2020) had one of our Welsh Black cattle expertly butchered and packed after being hung for 14 days. Being slow grown and 100% pasture fed for life, he is very lean, but very tasty. Because it has so little fat, we recommend cooking as you would game or venison rather than standard beef – so either super-fast, or slow. 

Not having sold our beef direct before, we are offering a pick and mix of joints, steak, mince and cubes or a 5 – 6kg selection / taster box, and have made the prices as competitive as we can. It’s all been vacuum packed and gone straight into our freezers, so will be good at least 6 months – just use it with 3 days of defrosting.

Joints

  • Topside (1.1 – 2.3kg joints): £10/kg. We like to roast these slowly, with either a touch of water in the pan, or braised over a bed of vegetables. Alternatively, sliced and cut into strips it is perfect for marinating and flash-frying.

  • Brisket (1.4 – 1.9kg joints): £9/kg

  • Chuck (1.2 – 2kg joint):  £10/kg: Left as a joint so you can choose to either slow roast it, cut it into steaks (often called braising steaks) or dice it for stews and casseroles.   This is the best choice for casseroles, curries or stews but as it is virtually fat free – so it will not have that greasy taste you often get with beef.

  • Silverside (1.4 – 1.7kg): £12/kg These make a great pot-roast or stew.

  • Rib on bone (1.4 – 2.1kg): £15/kg

  • Rib off bone: (2.1 kg) £20/kg:

  • Short ribs (0.9 – 1.4kg): .£10/kg.  Also known as Jacobs ladder

 

Steaks:

  • Fillet steak: (0.4 – 0.5kg packs): £30/kg. The most tender of the steaks.

  • Sirloin steak (approx. 0.5kg packs): £20/kg

  • Rump steaks (0.5 – 0.6kg packs): £15/kg

 

Other cuts and mince

  • Lean diced beef: (0.9 – 1.1kg packs). £10/kg .As with the rest of the meat this is very lean.

  • Lean mince (0.9 – 1.1kg packs): £8/kg

  • Shin (0.5 – 1kg packs):  £7/kg. A bargain cut that is brilliant cooked in stout.

  • Skirt (0.5 – 0.65hg packs): £10/kg. This is the traditional cut used in pasties, or pies. Cook it long and slow to tenderise it and bring out its rich flavour.

To order, please email us of what you want, and where there is a range of pack sizes, whether you’ve any preference for small, average or large. We’ll then set it aside for you in our freezer ready for you to collect (or we can deliver locally), and let you know the price – payment by BACS preferred.
