Boiling Beef (on the bone)

Cut from the flank this is an ideal cut for making a rich stock for soup. Known in some parts of the country as beef short ribs, the bone provides marrow that offers any stock a great depth of flavour. After boiling, the meat will fall from the bone. The tender meat can be finely chopped and added to the soup. Alternatively the meat can be used as a sandwich filling.

Cooking Guidelines

Place the boiling beef and vegetables in a deep pot or slow cooker and add sufficient water to cover the meat and any vegetables. Rustic root vegetables such as carrots, leeks, onion and potatoes are ideal. Bring to the boil and then reduce the heat and allow to simmer for a minimum of 3 hours. Use a sieve to drain off the stock and allow the meat to cool.

We select our beef weekly from regular local farmers. The cattle are reared traditionally and graze on pasture from early Spring to late Autumn. In the winter months the cattle roam free in large straw bedded barns and are fed silage and grain grown on the farm. I truly believe that Lanarkshire and the Scottish borders has some of the best beef herds in the country. This is due to the care and passion that these local farmers have for their stock. The mix of grass and clover on Lanarkshire’s permanent pasture most definitely adds a tremendous depth of flavour to the beef. The flavour and tenderness are also due to the maturation and storage process. Here at Henderson’s we allow the roasts and rumps to mature traditionally on the bone for up to 30 days. The various cuts are carefully prepared by us resulting in meat that has exceptional eating quality.

All the meat we supply is cut, packed and prepared to your specification by our skilled butchers on the day of your delivery. This allows you to either store in your fridge for up to 5 days or freeze and consume within 3 months. All meat is vacuum sealed and labelled with product information and storage guidelines.
