Palmdale Gourmet Lime Steak Bites

This is a great, quick cook, amazingly delicious, quite fancy – and yet easy – recipe.

The Steak Bites can be eaten hot with salad, rice, steamed veggies or a potato mash – or have them cold in a salad and use the sauce as the salad dressing.  How delicious would it be with avocado, cherry tomatoes, pomegranate seeds, baby spinach, snow peas and corn kernels…. yum!

Eaten either hot or cold. The bites would be a magnificent entree, served with olives, grilled haloumi, pickles, fresh or dried dates and/or figs and flat bread – using the sauce to dip in.

This can be partially prepared the day before – then they will take but moments to whip up.  For the recipe, read on

Palmdale focus on Pork

It’s so easy right?  The recipe specifies Pork.  But… what do you get?  There is a huge variety of Pork cuts – and to make it more confusing, we at Palmdale Village Meats have even more treats in store for you – seasoned pork, stuffed fillets etc….

What’s more, Pork isn’t consistent around the (other) shops and supermarkets, giving varying results in your cooking.

THAT is why you come to Palmdale!  We can provide you with a range of high quality, antibiotic and nitrate free, true free range pork all giving you a consistent result.

Mongolian Lamb with cauliflower mash

Mongolian Pork, with Cauliflower Mash

This is a favourite recipe with the Palmdale staff… we’ve decided to share!

We love it because of the flavour, of course, but it is so very easy to make with ingredients most of us have in our pantry already.  Besides, it’s really quite healthy, low in fat and carbohydrates, so it’s win/win.

You can choose to use Cauliflower Rice, instead of mash.  But the mash is so much easier and the cooking time is much more forgiving – with none of that messy grating needed for the rice.

We’d really love to hear how you like this recipe.  Let us know on our Facebook page, or…. just let us know next time you’re in the shop.

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!

Sausages in Brown Onion Gravy

A delicious, hearty meal – a family favourite of ours…. I’m trusting you with the recipe 🙂 When my girls moved out of home… this dish was front and centre in the “Dishes Mum Cooked” recipe book I gave them! It has evolved over the past 30+ years to the rich, luscious recipe you see below.

While it may take a few hours to simmer (essential for those amazing, rich flavours so inherent in the dish) – it is easily made in the morning or even a day or two before, and just reheated for your meal.
