Lamb this week? Think beyond Chops.

Whatever your views on Australia Day/Date – it’s become a time for people to celebrate our cultural diversity and has become synonymous with Barbeques and Lamb. Hence our post this week.

While Lamb Chops are the first thing we think of… I spent 30 minutes with John discussing the huge range of Free Range, Grass Fed, Antibiotic Free Lamb options available at Palmdale Village Meat, Poultry and Seafood.

Chops, Roasts, Sticks, Diced, Steaks, Minced, Burgers, Sausages, Yiros…

A list, with some recipe suggestions and recommended cooking times follow.  Remember, we are recommending cooking times for our quality lamb range.  All of our meat have a proven quality and give a trusted result.  If not, it wouldn’t be in our range.

Pork Belly Ideas

Pork Belly has certainly been in “flavour” recently 🙂 – different variations of this versatile cut has been featured on MasterChef in their recent series, touted by famous/popular Chefs in books, magazines, and in many blogs… But what is it?

It is a flat cut of meat that has a fairly high fat to meat ratio.  It is that fat to meat ratio and wide, flat shape, that lends the cut to such a variety of options, recipe wise, and the delicious taste that it is famous for.

There is some caution needed when purchasing your Pork Belly. Too fatty and the recipe will taste unpleasantly slimy.  Too little, and the tough meat (normally ameliorated by the combination of fat:meat) will be tough and dry.

Thankfully for you, Palmdale Meats, Poultry and Seafood, only get the very best Pork Belly. Quality control has already been done, to ensure the top cut of meat is available for you.
