Another cut that lends itself to slow cooking or braising, the feather blade of beef is perfect for slow cooking in curries. When cooked the gelatinous strip renders down adding depth to the flavour. A 1kg joint is about the right amount for 4.

Your featherblade of beef is prepared here in Linlithgow by our skilled butchers and delivered to your door fresh, so you can choose between freezing or consuming within a few days.

Refrigerated Shelf Life From Despatch Date: 6 Days

How to cook

All raw meat products must be cooked thoroughly until they are piping hot.

What is feather blade of beef?
Feather blade of beef is one of those cuts of beef that you have to seek out. It’s never really offered to us in supermarkets, which is a real shame as it’s a very good cut of beef that’s low on price but big on flavour.

Feather blade of beef is sourced from the shoulder blade of the cow, and it’s named is derived from the feather like tissue that runs through the meat. A blade steak tends to be quite small, but offers a sweet flavour. When cooked correctly, this feather of fat renders down to offer more flavour and a more moist, succulent texture.

How to cook feather blade of beef
Braised feather blade of beef has grown in popularity since the slow cooking boom, and we’re fully on board with this method of cooking. Braising and slow cooking helps the meat to fully tenderise and develop flavour. The result is super tender meat that falls apart at the touch of a fork, and a burst of juicy flavour when you take that first bite.

If you are cooking a feather blade steak and don’t have the time for the slow cooking method, the steak should be pan fried quickly over a high heat, and left to rest. Ideally, you should aim for medium-rare as anything more will result in a tougher texture.

Your meat order is kept cool in transit because we either use an insulated expanded polystyrene box, or a recyclable tough corrugated cardboard box which is foil lined and insulated with bubble wrap. Both boxes are leak-proof and sturdy.

To keep your delivery cool, it is packed along with specially designed ice packs. Our ice packs are made with a frozen water-based gel, which keeps the meat at the correct temperature for up to 48 hours. When the ice does melt, it stays as a gel, which prevents the delivery becoming wet.
