Beef products guide

Beef daubes
Traditional seam butchery is used to remove a relatively small muscle from the shoulder of the carcass. Tender, flavoursome and lean. Cut to 170g or 200g portions.

Flat iron steaks
Connective tissue and gristle are removed to produce a flat iron steak. A muscle from the
scapula bone of the shoulder. A non-working muscle and thus is tender. Depth of flavour from this muscle is good. Usually cut into 170-200g portions.

Featherblade steaks
A classic butchers favourite. A classic cut from the ‘spalebone’ muscle, also from the shoulder of the beef. When slow cooked, the inter-muscular fat and marbling simply melts in the mouth. An explosion of flavours. Usually cut into 170-200g portions.

Braising steaks
Cut from the “silverside” from the hindquarter of the carcass. Stripped of all exterior fat, this wide grained texture of a muscle is ideal for braising steaks. Flavour profile is superb with eating quality second to none.

Diamond under blade fillet
A small muscle from the shoulder of the carcass, expert craftsmen remove this muscle with seam butchery. This product can be utilised for pan frying, finished in the oven. A deep flavour and is a 1 person portion. Usually 140-200g portions.

Fillet head steak (silver skin on)
A fillet head steak cut from the Chateaubriand. Superb eating quality and melt in the mouth tenderness. +/- 10g tolerance. Usually 170g size.

Brisket slabs
Cut from the under sternum and portioned usually into 170-200g slabs. A coarse-grained muscle great for marinading. The ‘low and slow’ cook method is recommended for this cut.

Ox cheek
This cut lends itself to slow cooking but is very tender and flavoursome. Usually cut to 170-200g portions.

Shin towers
Seam butchery is utilised by expert craftsmen to produce a braising steak from the leg of the carcass. Usually sold in 250g portions.

Pork preparation

Pork parcel – skin off
Cut from the pork flank with the skin removed. Full of flavour and goodness.

Pork parcel – skin on
Square cut from the pork flank. A moist and succulent piece. Single
muscle which is banded for presentation purposes. Skin-on parcel can be scored to give superb crackling.

Chicken preparation

Chicken parcel
Chicken fillet filled with stuffing such as sage and onion, and banded with unsmoked streaky bacon. Usually 140-170g portion size.
