In this article, I will be showcasing 3 of their best cuts of halal meat available to order. Not only do they sell halal wagyu, but they also sell Galician Blond Beef and Agnei Iberico Lamb.
1. Halal Wagyu Beef Tenderloin
The first is their Halal Wagyu Beef Tenderloin, which is one of their most expensive cuts at £360 for 2.4kg. This would make around 10 steak slices, depending on how thick you would cut it, so is well worth the price at around £36 per steak- way less than what you would pay at any restaurant, even for non-Wagyu!
Wagyu fillets are extremely tender, with a high rate of marbling for a melt in the mouth experience. We would recommend not cooking more than medium rare, to get the full experience of just how tender these are!
2. Halal Wagyu Beef Charcuterie
The next product is the Halal Wagyu Beef Charcuterie. If you’ve been trying to make a grazing board then this beef charcuterie would be an amazing addition!
In my personal experience, it’s really difficult to find high quality charcuterie meats, and to get a wagyu beef version is so exciting. Charcuterie meats can be consumed at room temperature, and are perfect paired with rustic breads, cheeses and olives.
3. Halal Lamb Rack
This French Rack of Agnei Ibérico Lamb is made from high quality lamb meat. The breed oflamb is a 1000-year old breed, from the food of the Pyrenees region, where they are raised in tranquil environments to enhance the flavour.
You can expect high levels of flavour, tenderness and juiciness with this cut of meat. It is also one of the healthiest lamb meats, which a high oleic acid content!
Halal Chimichurri recipe
The following Chimichurri sauce is free from wine vinegar (there is a difference of opinion regarding this, and many people choose to avoid) and is the perfect accompaniment to some high quality meat.
- 3 cloves garlic
- 1/4 cup red onion or a shallot
- 2 tbsp fresh chillies
- 1 cup coriander
- 1 cup parsley
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1/4 cup fresh lime juice or lemon juice
- 3/4 cup virgin olive oil
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp chili flakes, more or to taste
- The easiest way to make this is to use a food processors to blend all the ingredients together. Start with your bulkiest ingredients, like the onion, garlic and chilli, and gradually add in everything else, finishing off with your oil and lime juice
- You can adjust all the ingredients to your preferred taste
- This Chimichurri will remain fine in the fridge for around 3 days
