It’s Great British Beef Week and I have some tasty beef recipes to help you celebrate! Organised by Ladies in Beef, Great British Beef Week 2015 runs from 23 April to 3 May and put the spotlight firmly on the fantastic food that British beef farmers produce. In addition, it will raise vital funds for those in need in the farming industry by partnering with the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (R.A.B.I.) for the third consecutive year.
How animals are raised for meat production has a direct effect on our personal health as well as the health of our planet. When you do choose to make beef recipes, be sure to choose ethically raised, free range, pasture raised and/or organic meat.
It’s extremely important to me to buy local pasture raised, free range and/or organic meat. How animals are raised is something I think about a lot so I buy from my local butcher Green’s of Pangbourne. Green’s have the highest standards for the provision and quality of their products. They can tell me exactly where the meat I buy for my beef recipes comes from and how it has been raised. If you are unable to buy meat from a trusted local butcher and you live in the UK, look for the Red Tractor on the packaged meat you buy. Red Tractor is the UK’s largest food assurance scheme. Covering a whole range of agricultural produce, it is an independent mark of quality that guarantees the food we buy comes from farms and food companies that meet high standards of food safety and hygiene, animal welfare and environmental protection.
Here are some of my favourite recipes using the best of British beef.
