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.

Maple / Red Gum Smoked Bacon

Palmdale Meat, Poultry and Seafood, in the North Adelaide Village, smoke their own long and short back bacon.  Truly smoked, they don’t use “liquid” smoke, no – their Bacon is smoked over authentic Red Gum Sawdust, with just a hint of Gluten Free true Maple Syrup. This on-site smoked bacon lends a flavour you are highly unlikely to have experienced before.

When it became increasingly obvious that if Palmdale Meats were to continue to offer high quality, fabulous tasting Gluten Free Bacon at a reasonable price – they had to start smoking it themselves.

You might even be surprised to hear that bacon is good for you too.  Why?…..

Corned Silverside

Corned Silverside is an easy meal – it’s very lean, exceptionally rich in Protein, Niacin and Iron – and a great source of Vitamin B2.

Why is it called “Corned” Silverside?  The term comes from when the salt used to “pickle” the Beef was large grained salt – the rock salt used then were called “Corns” of salt.

Corned Silverside has been a favourite for many generations, one has really stood the test of time. Namely it is easy to make and left-overs can be used in so many different ways to make it into a completely different meal.

Because it has been around for so long – different states and countries have different terms for it.  You might have heard of it referred to as Corned Beef, Pickled Beef or Salt Beef.

Palmdale Village Meat’s Corned Silverside is very Low Sodium has NO nitrates, NO gluten and absolutely NO preservatives

All of Palmdale Villiage Meat’s Corned Silverside is from only the Eye of the Silverside, giving you the very best cut of meat.  The stuff you buy in tins and in some supermarkets are very low quality indeed, older – tougher – meat and seasoned with a zillion additives to make it tender – best to buy from a reputable Butcher, like Palmdale Village Meats, Poultry and Seafood!
