So, he had enough, and decided to reduce his herd from 2.... to zero.
That's where we, his colleagues, benefited. He was selling off the excess meat for the exceptional price of $10 a kilo, which is extremely good value. I bought one of the 10 kilo packages, which included:
- A large Topside beef roast (so big, we cut it into two)
- Chuck steaks
- Topside steaks
- Beef mince
- Beef ribs
- Blade steaks
- Diced beef pieces and
- Home spiced sausages
When I got the huge packet of meat home, I set about portioning each cut into smaller amounts, and wrapped and labelled them for a date with my freezer. Glad that my vegetarian step-daughter was not at home that night, as the kitchen looked like an abattoir !! Here are the cuts, ready for the freezer.
Tonight I defrosted one of the topside steaks, and turned it into amazing beef fajitas.
I sprinkled the meat with a tasty spice rub from Costco, that had just a little kick of chilli which was a great addition.
An easy, throw it together, pile it on yourself dinner. Perfect for a quiet night in, or a casual option for feeding a large group.
