Cooking Instructions:
 
Pork Shoulder Roast with Crackling
Cooking guidelines from defrosted: remove the defrosted meat from its vacuum packaging and pat dry with kitchen paper. Allow the meat to come to room temperature for up to 30 minutes before cooking.

Preheat the oven to 250°C / fan 230°C / gas 9. Season joint with salt and pepper just before cooking. Sear the meat for 15 minutes in the oven.

Reduce temperature to 180°C / fan 160°C / gas 4 and cook for 25-30 minutes per 450g (lb).

Once joint is cooked, rest it in the warm place for at least 20 minutes.

Sirloin Steak
Cooking guidelines from defrosted: remove the steak from its packaging, allow the meat to come to room temperature for 20 minutes, patting dry with kitchen paper.

Heat the oil in a large frying pan, over a high heat. Cook the steaks to your liking following the recommended times:

Rare: 1-2 minutes per side, rest for 6 minutes
Medium: 3 minutes per side, rest for 4 minutes
Well Done: 4-5 minutes per side, rest for 1 minute

Remove from the pan, cover with foil and leave to rest in a warm place for the recommended time.

Minced Steak
Cooking guidelines from defrosted: Allow the mince to come to room temperature prior to cooking. Remove all packaging.

Preheat a wide, heavy bottomed pan over a high heat and add 5ml (1 tsp.) of oil. Add minced steak and brown all over for 6 - 9 minutes per 440g. Then use as per your favourite recipe.

Ensure product is piping hot throughout.

Cooking appliances vary in performance, these are guidelines only.

Chef's tip: for best results, use a wide heavy bottomed pan to allow the minced steak to spread out and brown in a thin layer. Break up the minced steak with a wooden spoon before or during cooking to release the meaty flavour!
Diced Beef Steak
Cooking guidelines from defrosted: allow the defrosted meat to come to room temperature, and at least 30 minutes before cooking, remove it from its packaging and pat dry with kitchen paper.

Preheat the oven to 140°C-160°C / fan 120°C-140°C / gas 1-3. Heat a large ovenproof pan on a high heat, add a little oil and sear the meat until evenly browned all over.

Season well then take out the meat and sauté a mixture of diced onion, carrot, celery and leeks.

About one third of the meat weight gives you the weight of vegetables needed. After sautéing the vegetables, place the meat back in the pan. Add wine, stock or water, and herbs or spices. Make sure that the liquid covers at least a third to a half of the meat and bring to a gentle simmer.

Cover with a lid and transfer into the preheated oven, or continue to simmer gently on the hob at a very low temperature. We recommend the oven method as the process is gentler and the meat does not stick to the pot. Check from time to time and top up with liquid if needed.

Cooking times vary depending on your oven. Check after 1 hour and at regular intervals thereafter. Basting as you go. Insert a meat fork it should slide in and out easily. Or simply take a piece out and taste it. Allow a total cooking time between 1½ -2 hrs, or until tender.

Butcher's Pork Sausages
Cooking guidelines from defrosted: remove all packaging. Separate the sausages using scissors. Do not prick sausages.

Pan fry: heat a little oil in a frying pan. Cook on a medium heat for 18-20 minutes, turning occasionally

Grill: preheat grill to medium. Place sausages on a grill rack for 14-18 minutes, turning occasionally.

Seasoned Beef Burgers
Cooking guidelines from defrosted: about 20 minutes before cooking, remove the burgers from the packaging and allow them to come to room temperature.

Preheat a heavy frying pan, ridged griddle pan, grill or BBQ to a medium-high temperature. Brush each side of the burger with a little oil. Cook the burgers for 5 minutes per side, turning only once. Don't press down while cooking as this can dry them out. Place the burgers on a rack, cover loosely with foil and leave to rest for 3-5 minutes before serving.

Ensure product is piping hot throughout.

Beef Meatballs

Pan fry: heat a little oil in a frying pan. Cook on a medium heat 10-12 minutes. Turn occasionally.

Grill: preheat grill to medium. Place meatballs on grill rack for 10-12 minutes. Turn occasionally.

Poach: add to simmering stock or sauce and cook for 8-10 minutes.

Barnsley Lamb Chop
Cooking guidelines from defrosted: defrost in fridge overnight. Remove meat from packaging and allow to come to room temperature.

Preheat a large frying pan. Brush oil directly onto the sliced and season with salt and pepper.
