Longhorn Beef

I was on a level 3 food safety in manufacturing course last week at Food Centre Wales in West Wales, a great course with a diverse bunch of people - the dinner ladies were great fun talking about the 'allergies' kids get these days. And the small holders, goats cheese producers and farmers also had some great stories - mostly about the non-parity of the EHO's rules and decisions but that's for another post...

One of my fellow students was Rob from Carn Edward based in the Gwaun Valley in Pembrokeshire. Check out Rob's website here

Rob not only gave me his secret burger recipe THAT WILL REMAIN SECRET!!! But he also gave me a few packs of his fine minced beef from his herd of Longhorn. I put it straight in the freezer as soon as I got home and will defrost it as needed.

I will be making burgers to his recipe for dinner tonight, I'll post some photos but the recipe I post will be an old recipe of mine, not the one I will actually use that Rob kindly disclosed to me.

If you see Rob around at the many markets he attends grab some of his fine Longhorn beef or his Lleyn lamb and see if you can get his secret recipe out of him! :)

Corned Veal with Savoy Cabbage and Mashed Potatoes

I made some corned veal the other day, although it's great in a sandwich I think this simple recipe is one of the best autumnal dishes you can cook...quick, easy, excuses people - make it!
