ABOUT OUR BEEF & LAMB PRODUCTS
How to handle frozen meat?
Defrost slowly in the chiller / fridge over night, leave it in its plastic pack.Before grilling / cooking, take them out of the fridge till fully defrosted, having reached room temperature or not cold anymore (please keep them in the packaging bag to prevent dryness at the surface and to keep naughty flies and geckos away :)
Average time needed to fully defrosted frozen meat having reach room temperature / not cold anymore
Steak cuts, 2-3 hours
Whole cut meat 2-3 kg, need at least 4-5 hours
Whole cut meat 4-5 kg, need at least 7-8 hours
Whole cut meat weight 6-8 kg, need at least 8-10 hours
Lamb carcass 13-15 kg, need a good whole day
Defrosting meat with a microwave is not recommended!
Why? because microwaving the frozen meat actually makes it partly cooked especially at the surface and you will lose the juice.
Do not refreeze defrosted meat!
Why? If it thaws and refreezes, this will be compromised and molds will grow on it which are harmless although it's not a good look and tastes no good.
How long can we keep frozen meat and still edible?
If constantly below -18 C, years! But better to cook it as soon as possible, maximum a month from the purchase. If the meat vacuumed plastic is torn frozen meat in the freezer they tend to get freezer burnt, will form ice on the surface and break the meat fibers this will cause dryness.
Demand to obtain whole meat cut with less or more fat
The whole meat cuts that you order will be sent in the original plastic packaging (we have never opened it).
Pardon us, we can't accommodate this request as we can't tell which one has more or less fat in it until the meat is cut.
Meat is a natural product with different sizes, shapes, colours and fat content as you can see from the real photos and some with our homemade youtube videos. You can see what's inside from the photos or youtube videos of its portioned cuts for roast or steak.
