This week we are celebrating all things Beef.
From Steak and Mince to King of the Roast, plus tips and tricks on how to cook it perfectly.
You will also find a classic recipe as well, good old Cottage Pie!


Beef meat of week




A favorite in any household, always available and in season and with cuts right across all prices.


When we think about Beef we assume Steaks and Mince, but as you can see there is much more to this much loved meat.


Our Beef is of the highest quality and has perfect marbling and no excess fat to ensure you get the best flavour every time.


We have some great cuts you wont normally see in the supermarkets, like Cheeks, Shank and even T-Bone steaks.


Remember we are happy to prepare your Beef as you like, by hand, and also give you tips on how to cook. Why not ask about our 2 and 4 Ribs roasts, perfect for a special Sunday roast.


Below you will find a recipe to give you a little inspiration, plus look out on our Social Media this week for more recipe videos.
