As the leaves change and a crisp chill fills the air, there's nothing quite like the warm and hearty meals that autumn brings. It's the season of comfort food, and what better way to embrace it than with the finest cuts of meat from our online butcher shop? Whether you're an experienced chef or just looking for some delicious inspiration, we've got you covered with our top meaty meals to cook this fall.

  1. Beef Stew with Root Vegetables

Autumn is all about hearty stews, and beef stew is a classic for a reason. Our premium cuts of beef, rich in marbling, create a melt-in-your-mouth experience. Combine it with earthy root vegetables like carrots, potatoes, and parsnips for a comforting and satisfying meal. Slow-cook it to perfection and savour the aroma that fills your kitchen. Our Beef Casserole Steak would be an excellent choice for this.

Here's how to make it:

  • Cut the beef into chunks and brown them in a large pot with olive oil.
  • Add chopped onions, garlic, and a bouquet garni of thyme and bay leaves.
  • Pour in beef broth, red wine, and diced tomatoes.
  • Add carrots, potatoes, and parsnips.
  • Simmer until the meat is tender and the flavours meld together.

2. Lamb Shoulder Roast

Lamb is at its best in the autumn, and a slow-roasted Lamb Shoulder on the Bone is a showstopper. Rub it with aromatic herbs, garlic, salt, and pepper, then let it roast to tender perfection.

Here's how to do it:

  • Preheat your oven to 325°F (165°C).
  • Season the lamb generously with your herb mixture.
  • Roast the lamb in a covered roasting pan for several hours until it's fork-tender.
  • Serve with roasted vegetables and a red wine reduction sauce.

3. Pork Chops with Apple Compote

Apples are abundant in the fall, making them the perfect accompaniment to pork chops. Sear our juicy pork chops to golden perfection and serve them with a homemade apple compote infused with cinnamon and a touch of brown sugar. It's a sweet and savoury symphony on your plate.

Here's how to make this delightful dish:

  • Season our juicy pork chops with salt, pepper, and a pinch of thyme.
  • Sear the chops in a hot skillet with butter until they're golden brown.
  • Prepare an apple compote by simmering sliced apples with cinnamon and a touch of brown sugar.
  • Serve the chops with the compote for a sweet and savoury harmony.

4. Chicken and Wild Mushroom Risotto

As the days get cooler, risotto becomes a go-to comfort food. Our premium chicken breasts combined with earthy wild mushrooms create a rich and creamy risotto that's hard to resist. Finish it off with a drizzle of truffle oil for an extra touch of luxury.

Here's how to make this creamy dish:

  • Sauté our premium chicken breasts until they're cooked through, then set them aside.
  • In the same pan, sauté a mix of wild mushrooms until they're tender.
  • Add Arborio rice and cook, stirring, until it's translucent around the edges.
  • Gradually add chicken broth, stirring until the liquid is absorbed.
  • Stir in Parmesan cheese and truffle oil for added richness.

5. Venison Medallions with Berry Reduction

For a taste of the wild, try our venison medallions. Sear them quickly in a hot pan and serve them with a luscious berry reduction sauce. The combination of tender venison and sweet-tart berries is a delightful autumn treat.

Here's how to create this unique dish:

Christmas isn't the only time to enjoy turkey. Our ground turkey is perfect for a hearty chilli. Combine it with roasted butternut squash, beans, and a blend of spices or our pre made sauce for a comforting, one-pot meal that's ideal for cosy evenings.

Here's how to make it:
