Martlemass Beef; Moreish & Mesmerising
This dry-cured Heritage-Breed Beef Silverside is named for St. Martin's Day, where medieval British farmers would celebrate the gathering-in of the harvest and the preparation of goods for winter.
Traditionally, feast dishes on this day were heavily spiced with cinnamon and mace, and a whole cow would be butchered and salted for use throughout the colder months of the year.
We follow that recipe fairly closely, but since St. Martin also happens to be the patron saint of Vintners and Innkeepers, we tip a few bottles of a seasonal fruit Sour from Kernel Brewery into the mix as well. So, now, you cannot pronounce Martlemass without the mmmmmm.
Sliced Packs (120g) have a best before of 7 days and sealed will happily last 4 weeks.
Whole Muscles are sold by the half, unsliced, (as pictured)and weigh approximately 400g. These have a best before of 3 months, and will happily last up to 6 when left sealed.
Depending on the time of year, the added Saison is either Damson or Sour Cherry.
Does not contain PORK of any kind - however, it is processed in a facility that deals with both. Contains Gluten, from the beer.
It's lovely beef, well dried, and very well balanced flavours. The beef still tastes throughout the spices. Bought some over Christmas as part of a mix pack, and the first charcuterie to disappear from the board. A success
Oh my word this is insanely good. Perfect in every way, the flavour, the texture, the everything.
Slice thinly with a sharp knife and have with pickled cucumbers - trust me. Or make your own pizza and throw some on once cooked with Rocket
This beef was extraordinary, never tasted cured meat as good as this. Lovely flavour and very tender. Impressive customer service and well packaged, fast delivery. Would definitely buy again.
Superb - the best cured meat I’ve had for years
Good lord almighty this stuff is good. I could eat it like crisps and I often do.
