Tips

Try dressing the salad with some more balsamic for a better result and a little more zing.

Always rest beef after cooking. This gives the meat juices a chance to redistribute, giving a more moist and tender result.

The quality and ‘value’ of meat should not be measured by how heavy a feedlot can grow their beef. Rather, we look after our animals from when they are born to when they are sent to Greenham – we try to give them a quality of life all the way through – and that’s why we end up with a really good product.
