(UK) Where do you source your meat?


Recommended Posts

Hey all, hope you are well!

Anyone here from the UK and want to share with me where you source your meat?

 

I'm currently getting my food from ASDA supermarket but I want to try (at least for a month) eating high quality grass fed meat.

I've been looking around and there's quite a few places that I can buy meat from online, but I'm hoping someone can save me time by telling me where they have managed to find the best bang for your buck source online.

 

Thank you in advance!

I found a FANTASTIC place online where I got a great deal on an amount of meat that would make PETA weep 😅

- 4kg/8.8lbs of Ribeye Steaks

- 4kg/8.8lbs of Sirloin Steaks

- 1.8kg/4lbs of Whole Sirloin (because I want to cut some Thicc Boi steaks lol )

 

I assume I can name the place I got it since nobody has said otherwise since I made this thread...? Sorry if this is breaking rules.

Cost me £150 GBP / $191 USD over at The Fat Butchers website (UK) - crazy daily sales!

Hey mate,

Yeah, I got a few butchers close to me but would never get the sort of deal I mentioned above!
I struck gold finding the place I found.
 

I do need to speak to a local butcher to see if they can make me some minced beef with 10% or so organ to boost the nutritional profile.
Anyone here ever tried doing that?
Good? Bad?

I'll be eating natures vitamin tablets (eggs) regularly too and will have salmon and prawns once a week each, so in terms of nutrition I probably dont need the bit of organ added to my mince would I?

According to several carnivore doctors and influencers if you are eating enough of the right meats and fats then you don’t need to supplement with organ meats.
It’s mainly just a preference thing. If you like them fine, if you don’t, fine.
Personally I believe they are good for you and boost your nutritional profile but I only eat them about once a month. I raise or hunt many of the animals I eat and I don’t waste the organs. I’m pretty much nose to tail. For me it’s not so much about the nutrition as much as it is just food.
If you want get into organs then having it ground or minced with other meats is a great way to do it, especially if your not fond of the taste. You could also purchase a grinder and do it yourself if you’d like. You could even make it into sausage. Could talk to a butcher about that as well.
What I do is with liver I make a pate or liverwurst. Heart, kidneys, spleen, sweetbreads, testicles, they all get grilled over a wood fire.

Sounds awesome!
I'd love to hunt my own food!

Back in Ireland I went rabbit/pigeon hunting (shotgun) a few times and that was a great feeling knowing that I was going out to earn my dinner.
Unfortunately it was only a few times and now where I am in the UK I have absolutely 0.
I'm currently trying to figure out what my next move will be in life - I've no missus or kids, so provided I have enough bank roll saved up I am free to wander.
Maybe I should prioritise my next adventure to include easy access to hunting... I've always wanted to go rifle hunting (deer or whatever).

 

Regarding the organs, I've not tried most but liver is ok on occasion.
It's a bit strong tasting and really I only eat it for the nutrition - but as you said, if I am eating right then I dont need it.
I should try the others at some point soon - part-organ sausages could be a game changer!

I'm one of those that winces at the thought of eating testicles haha
Does it actually taste nice?
Can you post a picture of it next time you cook some up? Show me the inside.
I'd try it for sure, but I'm already tensing up at the thoughts haha

Nice. That works out to $8.84/lb (USD) which is much lower than you will find in your average store or market.

He posted this pick of the testes on the grill the other day...

Yup!
I was quite impressed with the price myself.
Here's a pic of it all when it arrive today (Ribeye steaks on the left, Sirloin (aka NY Strip I believe) on the right and whole Sirloin in the middle).

The whole sirloin needed some tidying up and it was then I discovered I need new knives 😅
Pretty much the whole fat cap was hard fat and I should have just cut it all off there and then (I tried to eat it but no bueno)... I'll know for the next time I suppose if they don't have whole ribeye on sale by then.

If by chance you ever wander to my part of Texas I’ll take you hunting.
Then we will feast from nose to tail. I have yet to eat an organ meat that wasn’t good. I’m not a big fan of liver but like I said when made into liverwurst I love it.
The testicles are very soft and have a mild flavor that I really can’t describe but they are good. Back when I was working cattle during round times I was one of the castraters. The women folk would
Prepare them by removing the outer sheath and the bread them and deep fry then serve them with a white cream gravy. Absolutely delicious.
With these lamb testi I just removed the sheath, sliced then in half lengthwise, seasoned, coated in butter and grilled them over a wood fire. These in the pic were about 2 1/2 inches long.

Well, riding the Pan American Highway is on my list of things to do, so if I find myself in your neck of the woods then I'll definitely take you up on the offer bud!

Regarding the testi's, in the meantime a buddy of mine said that he cooked some up before and has said the same thing as you. Soft and actually quite nice.
I'll add it to the list of things I need to try then 😎 along with liverwurst

Thanks for the info

  • 2 weeks later...

I still have 4.5kg/9.9lbs of the 9.8kg/21.5lbs of meat I bought 2 weeks ago but I got a notification to say that my supplier has restocked enough Ribeye to reactivate the bulk order for that particular item!

To make it even better, they have a sale where I can get an additional 2kg/4.4lbs of Ribeye for £25/$32usd 😎

I ordered today but I had to choose Tuesday as the delivery date so I could make room in my small freezer, lol

Not bad though, 10kg/22lbs for £155/$197usd!
If I bought that at the supermarket where I used to buy it then I'm looking at an extra £74/$94usd

I'm a sucker for a bargain! 🤣
