In praise of beef

When it comes to choosing the ultimate classic British meal, it’s hard to beat a juicy, perfectly cooked joint of roast beef (with all the trimmings, of course). It’s the ultimate winter family dish: hearty, traditional, and best when accompanied by the noisy chatter of friends and family.

When a sizzling joint of roast beef arrives on your table, it’s really something quite special. That’s because Tesco now matures all its beef joints and steaks for a minimum of 21 days, giving them incredible flavour and tenderness.

Real Food magazine recently visited farmer John Vanstone of North Eastcott Farm, Cornwall, who supplies award-winning organic beef to Tesco Finest. “I feel lucky to be able to sit down to a table and eat the beef we’ve produced here – my personal favourite is a lovely bit of rib-eye steak or a slow-cooked brisket, which is a cheaper joint, but is incredibly tasty,” said Vanstone. “Still, nothing beats a roast on Sunday – no sauces, and nothing fancy, just beef cooked simply, in its natural state. It is my highlight of the week.”
