Cooking Instructions

Steak preference is a very personal thing. That’s how we cook our steaks and we think it works the best:

  1. Take your meats out of the fridge for at least 20 minutes prior to cooking
  2. Cook steaks 2 to 3 minutes per side to medium rare with core temperature of 54c. Meat thermometer will help you here.
  3. Always finish it off with Malden sea salt.

We prefer the lamb cooked to medium so its pink, juicy and tender. 

The chicken should be cooked till the juice runs clear.

The sausages and kebabs are perfect once they reach a core temperature of 70c for minutes.

The empanada need 10 minutes at 180c in the oven to cook through.

To reheat the bread, place in to the oven for 5 minutes, we recommend the butter is served at room temperature.

All cooking instructions are for guidance as every kitchen is different and equipment works differently. All these timing are based on ovens and equipment in our kitchen.

  2. Rob Ashcroft (verified owner)

    This is top notch. Excellent value for money for great quality meat.
    Everything in the box is superb. Nicely vac packed so easy to freeze.
    Have already ordered another one.

  3. Sue Law (verified owner)

    Absolutely fabulous selection. Everything top quality and packed so as to be able to freeze easily.
    The lamb kebabs were so clever – triangular so they griddled flat on three sides. Simple but very effective.
    Have now tried the curry box, the vegetarian curry box and the meat box.
    All incredible and exceptional value.

  4. Derek McDonagh (verified owner)

    Superb, both in Quality and value. This fed a family of 4 for a whole weekend of fantastic meals, I search high and low for the best steaks in any country I am in and these steaks esp the Ribeye are best I’ve had in the UK.
    The lamb rump was melt in the mouth
    The variety of contents in the box keeps you intrigued for every serving and there is something for everyone’s satisfaction But especially the steak !
    You will not regret this purchase in anyway and wonder why its only £70.
    My hat tips to Aktar and the Team here especially with what they must be going through with the Covid closures.

    Wonderful food at a great price. Don’t hesitate to buy

  6. Walter Mac (verified owner)

    If you are on the cusp to purchase wondering if it’s value for money then don’t worry, it is!! The meat is so good and it’s a nice touch to tell you how to cook it, the empanadas I never wanted to end and I’m looking forward to finishing all my food just so I can order another one!!

  7. Ruth Miller

    Exceptional quality and great value for money. Really well vac packed, easy to freeze. Have had the bavette and chicken so far, both absolutely delicious, trying the lamb tomorrow.
    Am even using the insulated packaging on the allotment! Have recommended to many family and friends who are equally impressed.
