James Whelan Butchers: Short Ribs with Balsamic Vinegar

Thursday, January 1st, 2015 in Beef Recipes, Recipes | No Comments »

Short ribs are also known as Jacob’s ladder. The flavoursome meat is well suited to slow braising; the meatier the ribs the better, so ask for them well-trimmed. Taken from the bone, short rib meat also works well in burgers. Short Ribs with Balsamic Vinegar – Printer Friendly Download Ingredients 6 beef short ribs, cut […]

Pomegranate-Marinated Hanger Steak with a Warm Farro Salad

Monday, November 10th, 2014 in Beef Recipes | No Comments »

Ask your butcher to prepare the hanger steak for grilling; it will probably be in a few pieces once the sinew has been removed. This recipe will work equally well with sirloin or skirt steak, but adjust the timing accordingly. Farro is a nutty-tasting whole grain from Italy; you could use brown basmati rice or a barley couscous instead. […]

James Whelan Butchers: Daube with Macaroni St Gall Gratin

Friday, October 24th, 2014 in Beef Recipes | No Comments »

As with beef Bourguignon, there are as many variations on the theme of daube as there are cooks in Provence. You can cook a daube with chunks of meat — shin would be good — or in the piece, pot-roast style. Here we have used the so-called housekeeper’s cut, which is taken from the shoulder […]

James Whelan Butchers: Beef Carpaccio with Desmond Cheese

Thursday, October 16th, 2014 in Beef Recipes | No Comments »

A simple and very elegant dish. Excellent dry-aged fillet of beef served in this way is a real pleasure. Be sure to use very good olive oil — you will really notice the difference. Many hard cheeses will work here — and Parmesan or pecorino would be authentic — but if you are feeling patriotic, […]

James Whelan Butchers: Beef Wellington

Tuesday, October 14th, 2014 in Beef Recipes | No Comments »

My family loves this recipe and there’s something wonderfully retro about the notion of beef Wellington. It puts us in mind of formal dinners at Downton Abbey or seventies dinner parties with the hostess floating around in a kaftan. Named after the man who crushed Napoleon at Waterloo, the very notion of preparing beef Wellington […]
