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?…..

small selection of chicken from Palmdale Meats

Slow Cooked, Apricot Chicken

First of all….. NO!  This is NOT the old 70’s/80’s favourite using french onion soup and apricot nectar (although my hind brain memory remembers that fondly)

This is a tiny bit more sophisticated, less sodium, less sugar, just as easy and absolutely delicious!!

Before the recipe… a quick word about the Chicken sold at your favourite Butchers,  Palmdale Village Meats, Poultry and Seafood. They get their Chickens from Greenslade Chickens.  An incredibly well known and respected Free Range Farm in the Riverland, South Australia – yup, local – and when Greenslade say “Free Range”, they mean it!  Now a large farm, but still family run after over 20 years – producing Free Range (from birth), grain fed.  Greenslade Farm actually grows the crops needed for the chooks themselves.  The Chickens are Antibiotic Free and totally Nitrate Free.

Chicken that tastes like Chicken should!

So, now the recipe….

Roast Pork Belly, a delicious option for the versatile Pork Belly cut

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.

Beef Cheeks – how to cook

If you are like me… who had never heard of Beef Cheeks a few years ago – you be asking two questions.  1 – are they really the Cheeks?  and 2 – Why???

The answers are yes they are the Cheeks – and why?  Because they are the most delicious pieces of Beef you can cook (recipes below) with a surprisingly high level of medicinal benefit to your body!  The texture is similar to the best parts of Lamb Shanks and Beef Cheeks actually have lower calories and  higher protein – gram for gram – than a beef roast.  And of course, they’re 100% Gluten Free!

Simply put, the flavour that is infused in the Ham Hocks when smoked, on site, at Palmdale Meats, Poultry and Seafood – North Adelaide Villiage – is intense, guaranteed to make your meal extra special.  I’ve found I don’t even need to add stock or stock seasoning to my meal – the hock is flavour enough!
