The Benefits of Blast Freezing

Ever wondered why we sell our meat frozen? Well, here are the facts! Firstly, the technical term for the type of freezing carried out on our meat is called Blast Freezing. This takes place at our processors in their state of the art, modern facilities. Blast freezing essentially takes the meat to a very cold temperature, very quickly. There are two mains reasons for blast freezing fresh meat; for safety and for quality.

Spring on the Farm

  In farming, spring officially starts on the 1st of March. This is because normally ground temperatures, daylight and rainfall generally reach levels where grass growth becomes possible. This year is the exception. Ground temperatures have been consistently above average and rainfall below average all winter with the result that the grass has been growing…

Slow Cooker Stew

Our delicious Slow Cooker Stew is the ultimate in comfort food and the easiest of meals to prepare. Pop everything in the slow cooker and come back in 6 hours, it’s that simple! You can use either beef or lamb for this recipe and you can even vary the vegetables use. Why not try peas instead of parnsips?

Silverside or Topside of Beef Brochette/Kebabs

Guaranteed to always taste good on a BBQ or griddle pan, Beef Brochette/Kebabs are quick and easy to prepare. The key to ensuring the meat stays succulent and tender is to marinade for 24 hours and not to over-cook.

Roo’s Cowboy Stew

This heart-warming stew is perfect for a cold Winter’s night and a very tasty alternative to the traditional Irish stew. By using sweet potatoes, curry powder and soy sauce, we’ve given this stew an Asian flare… we hope you like it!

Pot Roast Bushfarm Silverside or Topside of Beef

We all love a great pot roast and nothing could be easier to prepare. Ciara of Ciara’s Kitchen created this recipe and cooked it a number of times and it is really delicious.

Cashel Bay Gourmet Meatballs

This recipe comes from a wonderful cook in Cashel in Connemara, who has brought on occasions, a pot of the family’s favourite treat on the bus from Connemara to Dublin as a surprise for her daughter and granddaughters’ dinner. Just tried this out myself last week and it was really tasty and rich with a different set of amazing flavours.

Bushfarm Lamb Korma

This is a delicious dinner for young and old, which works for all occasions. Can be made in advance and reheated slowly in a heavy-based casserole pot and served at the table.

Bushfarm Lamb Koftas with Mint Yoghurt

Prepare this for the children while the adults savour the Rack of Lamb and any extra koftas left over. Great on the pan or BBQ for simple suppers or lunchtime treats. This is another great recipe from Ciara @ Ciara’s Kitchen.

Bushfarm Lamb Burgers

Lamb burgers are a tasty alternative to beef burgers and go especially nice with chunky homemade chips and a brioche burger bun. Our recipe uses traditional flavours or rosemary and mint but burgers are perfect for experimenting with your favourite flavours so why not use the basic method in this recipe to create your own?

Bushfarm French Trimmed Rack of Lamb

This is a classic Lamb cut which is oven ready and so simple to cook. It is perfect for a family dinner or gathering with friends. Remember Mint, Rosemary and Garlic all go great with lamb so it is very hard to mess up!

Beef Stroganov

Beef Stroganov is a classic and can be enjoyed by all the family as a quick weekday supper or a special weekend dinner party favourite.

Asian Style Beef Salad

There are loads of Asian style salad ideas out there and sometimes the best thing is to keep it relatively simple using only really good quality fresh ingredients. While it tastes amazing with fillet steak other cuts can also be used. Just remember that it will not be as tender as fillet, slice it thinly and don’t over-cook. Experiment and enjoy!

Anu’s Beef Korma Recipe

This family recipe comes all the way from Kerala in India and was handed down from generation to generation in Anu’s family. The real depth of flavour from the spice mix is incredible and well worth the effort. This recipe freezes well so why not bulk cook and store in the freezer for some midweek treats.
