Blundeston Grand Christmas Fair

Uncategorized

Had a fabulous day at Blundeston Christmas fair, ably assisted by my lovely sister Alison, Master George Perks and the First lady of Perks; Grandma Anne.  Feedback from home-made stews was all positive, surprised to find that the “risky” beef sausage and chorizo stew sold quicker than the traditional beef and veg casserole (albeit both sold out by end of the day.)  Found my inner apprentice-candidate and sold some frozen beef too.  Worth the effort and the stress!  Might even do it all again next week!

New Value Box of Sam Perks Beef – limited number available

Uncategorized

Due to popular demand and a number of orders scheduled for delivery this week, we are no longer offering the £25.00 economy box (aside from those already scheduled for delivery.) We do however have a £35.00 value box available, each containing a large joint of brisket, a pack of stewing steak, a pack of braising steak, a pack of beef shin, a pack of beef skirt, one pack of mince, one pack of burgers (4 in pack) and one pack of sausages (8 in pack) Most packs are 500 gm approx in weight each and we will also include recipe cards. Retail price of items if bought individually would be £38.50 approximately. Free local delivery. Only two of these available as we only have two joints of brisket left!

Beefy Bangers

Uncategorized

After the success of last week’s bonfire hampers – featuring a packet of Sam Perks Beef Sausages – we’ve had a number of requests for recipe ideas for how to make the best of our lovely beefy bangers.  A favourite in our house is beef sausage pie topped with a creamy horseradish mash or the following goulash recipe; really easy to make and perfect comfort food on a cold winters evening.   Beef sausages are just £3.40 a pack including local delivery and chances are you’ll have most of the other ingredients already to hand.  We’d love to hear your feedback if you try this out or any of your other favourite beef sausage recipes.

 

Beef Sausage Goulash

 

Ingredients

Preparation method

  1. Preheat the oven to 150C/300F/Gas 2.
  2. Heat the oil and butter in a large ovenproof frying pan/stew pot and fry the sausages for 5-7 minutes, or until browned all over.
  3. Remove the sausages from the pan using a slotted spoon and set aside. Fry the onions and garlic in the same pan for 3-4 minutes, or until softened. Stir in the flour and cook for a further 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add the paprika, chillies and pepper and stir until well combined. Pour in the beef stock, return the beef sausage and add the chopped tomatoes to the pan and cook in the oven for 30-35 minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven and skim off any fat that’s risen to the surface with a slotted spoon. Stir in the soured cream and parsley until well combined.
  6. Serve the goulash with long-grain rice or crusty bread and enjoy!
