Beef XL brisket Reared by Giles & Geoffrey Maddaver at Looe, Cornwall

£26.95 / 2.6kg


Our organic beef brisket will hit the spot on a chilly day. Hearty and warming, it turns beautifully tender as it cooks. Dish this up as a pot roast alongside piles of buttery mash and seasonal greens for a crowd-pleasing dinner. It’s also the cut to choose for DIY salt beef and pastrami.

Our beef comes from our producer group of small-scale organic farmers, who rear their animals to some of the highest welfare standards around. They are grass fed and enjoy an outdoor existence, reaching maturity naturally.

How to prepare

A perfect slow-roast joint. Remove from the fridge 30 mins before roasting. Season and oil generously. Brown in a 220°C/Gas 7 oven for 20 mins, then turn down to 160°C/Gas 3 and add a little water to the pan (stock and wine ideally). Cover tightly with foil and roast for 4 hours, until tender. Leave somewhere warm to rest for at least 20 mins before carving. Use any resting and roasting juices as the base for your gravy.


Keep in the fridge below 5˚C. If you’re not going to eat it within a day or two, freeze your meat as soon as possible and always within the use by date. Once frozen, use within a month. Use on the day of defrosting.

Delivered in insulated packaging to keep cool on your doorstep.
