Cooking Instructions:
 
Diced Pork
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.

Cooking appliances vary in performance, these are guidelines only.
Beef Stir-fry Strips
Cooking guidelines from defrosted: best to do in a wok.

Heat oil in pan then add beef until cooked thoroughly. Prepare veg of choice (e.g. carrots, baby corn, broccoli etc.) and stir fry for 2-3 mins. Can add sauce of choice e.g. soy sauce and also noodles if you like.

Skirt Steak
Cooking guidelines from defrosted: allow the defrosted meat to come to room temperature before cooking. Pat dry with kitchen paper.

Preheat a griddle or frying pan to the highest setting and brush the steaks with oil all over. Place the steaks into the pan and cook for:

Rare: 1 minute per side
Medium Rare: 1½ - 2 minutes per side

Turning the steak only once. Remove the steak from the pan and place on a rack. Cover loosely with foil and leave to rest in a warm place for 10 minutes before serving. Slice thinly against the grain to enjoy.

Chefs tip: this cut really benefits from a marinade. Marinade the steak with 5g honey, 5g Ginger finely chopped, 1 tbsp olive oil and 1 tsp lemon juice, 1 tsp Soy sauce, for 2 hours.
