Cooking Instructions:
 
Beef Brisket boned & rolled
Prepare the meat: at least 30 minutes before cooking, remove the defrosted meat from its packaging and pat dry with kitchen paper.

Allow the meat to come to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 140°C-160°C / 275-325°F / gas 1-3.

About one third of the meat weight gives you the weight of vegetables needed. Try onions, carrots, celery and leeks.

Sear for flavour: heat a large ovenproof pan on a high heat, add a little oil and sear the meat until nicely browned all over. Do not burn the meat as it makes it taste bitter. Then take out the meat and sear the vegetables until nicely caramelised.

Add the liquid: after searing the vegetables, place the meat back in the pan. Add wine, stock or a mixture, and herbs such as bay leaf, peppercorns or cloves. Make sure that the liquid covers at least a third to a half of the meat and bring gently to the boil on the hob. Avoid boiling too quickly as this can make the meat stringy.

The cooking process: cover with a lid and transfer into the preheated oven, or continue to simmer gently on the hob at a very low temperature. For the perfect braise we recommend using the oven method as the process is more gentle and the meat does not stick to the bottom of the pot as it can with the hob method. Check from time to time and top up with liquid if needed.

Test the meat: cooking times vary depending on the cut and your oven. As a rule of thumb, you should check casseroles after 1 hour and at regular intervals thereafter. The easiest way to check joints is to use a meat fork, inserted into the thickest part of the meat. The fork should go in and out easily.

Cooking appliances vary in performance, these are guidelines only.
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 fully cooked & piping hot throughout.

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!
Beef Rib Trim
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 2 - 2½ hrs, or until tender.

Ensure product is piping hot throughout.
