Autumn is upon us and is a season known for its rich, hearty and comforting dishes. When it comes to incorporating meat, there are so many delicious options that will help you get through the colder months ahead. Here are some of the best autumn foods we suggest you cook this season, which will be made that much more tasty, by using our high grade produce at Burts Catering Butchers:
Beef stew is a classic and hearty dish that embodies warmth, comfort, and home-cooked goodness. At its heart it consists of tender pieces of beef, simmered to perfection in a flavourful broth or sauce. Typically made with a combination of beef broth, red wine, or tomatoes. Potatoes, carrots and plenty more can be included to make this meal as nutritious as possible. It’s no secret that the key to success with this meal is the quality of produce used, something we at Burts Catering Butchers can guarantee when buying your meat from us.
The beloved classic that is Shepherd’s pie is a delicious dish that combines rich flavours with satisfying textures. At its core shepherd’s pie consists of a savoury filling, traditionally lamb hence the name “shepherd’s pie”, however it can be equally as appetising with beef if preferred (which makes it a Cottage Pie!) Although the topping, a smooth and creamy layer of mashed potatoes, is what is most recognisable from a shepherd’s pie, the meaty core of the dish is vital. If you want your meal to taste the best it possibly could, the lamb or beef used needs to be exceptional.
Tagine dishes are incredibly versatile and can be prepared with a wide range of ingredients. They often feature meats like lamb, chicken, or beef. Tagine dishes are slow-cooked over a low heat, either on a stovetop, in an oven, or even over an open flame. This gentle cooking method allows for retention of flavours, absorbing spices and seasonings. Slow cooked meals taste to perfection when the finest meats are at your disposal, something we at Burts Catering Butchers give assurance to.
A casserole typically consists of a variety of ingredients layered or mixed together in a single baking dish. A casseroles fundamental ingredient is usually a main protein source, such as chicken, beef or fish, combined with vegetables, pasta/rice and a flavourful sauce. Cheese, breadcrumbs, or other toppings are sometimes added to create a golden, crispy crust on the surface. Casseroles are typically baked in the oven at a consistent temperature and are a warm, filling, and satisfying meal to eat. They are brilliant hearty meals, perfect for the autumn season, with the ability of feeding the family with a single dish. What ever meat you decide to include in your casserole, we have the highest quality available here at Burts Catering Butchers.
