Firstly, a little know cut outside of Brazilian circles, the Brazilian Cupim. This is a piece you will do well to find outside of Brazil or South America. It comes from the Zebus cow which has a distinct hump on the top of its spine; this is where the cupim comes from. It is a rich and well marbled cut of beef that will be a great piece for a BBQ. It is also well suited to pot roasting or stews with both bringing out the unique, cupim flavours.

Onto the USDA featherblade. This is a cut that has bags of beautiful flavours and benefits from the skill and craft of our producers in the States. The featherblade is cut from the side of the shoulder blade and is lean with a beautiful texture. It is well suited to slow cooking methods or braising as there is a strip down the middle which releases flavours during this process as the cut is tenderised. Across the pond they also BBQ and grill this cut and use it as a steak.

The Seaweed cured Salt beef is a beautifully flavourful and rare piece. Made by our trusted British producers, this cut is perfect for the filling in the class New York Deli Sandwich. It has a unique layering to the flavours and will give you something delicious.

The Irish Chuck roll is another product that is not well known and is underappreciated. An award winning piece, ours comes from Ireland where our expert producers have cut it from the neck, shoulder blade and upper leg. A succulent and juicy cut, it is a well worked piece and, as such, is lean in nature. This means the product is better suited being slow cooked and being used in stews or pot roasts. Sometimes called the Boston butt of meat it is also suited to be pulled or shredded.

Finally, the British Flank Steak. This product may be moving off this section soon as it is rising and rising in popularity. A combination of intense flavours and health benefits have seen its stock rise; in fact our flank steak was listed in in Men’s Health Magazine as one of the "49 of the best things in the world to eat right now". A think piece it is perfect for grilling, pan- frying or braising this award winning product.
