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.

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….

Asian Pork (or Chicken) Meatballs in Honey Ginger Sauce

This is a lovely meal, served hot with rice or veggies – cold with a crisp Asian salad. or serve in fresh crusty bread rolls with a salad. Easy to make with a different, delicious, fresh taste.

It’s made in two parts, the Meatballs first, then the Sauce. But for for all of that, it’s an easy recipe and just scrumptious.  The recipe is enough for a family of 4, (or 2 healthy eating adults) and will only take 20-30 minutes to cook.  We even have added Thermomix(™) cooking instructions. For the recipe read on…

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!

New – Ham Hocks, Smoked On Site!

With the expert care and dedication to their craft, John and Kym, from Palmdale Meats are pleased to announce that the recipe for their Red Gum Smoked Ham Hocks have been perfected, completed, available, tested and delicious!

Why home smoked?  The Flavour, along with the confidence that it is totally 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!

While the first thing that comes to mind, when you think of Ham Hocks, is Pea and Ham Soup – that’s not the only yummy meal you can make with this explosion of flavour!
