More Information On Alternative Beef Cuts

For your next dinner party, try our Beef Bone In Shin - also known as Thor’s Hammer. Guaranteed to wow your guests, not only does this cut offer a unique appearance, but it also offers a delicious flavour and tenderness.

If you’re after a high-quality beef cut that is perfect for sandwiches and salads, try the British Cured Salt Beef joint. After you’ve slow-cooked this beef to perfection, try layering it between soft white bread, Emmental cheese, and gherkins for the perfect lunchtime treat. 

The alternative cuts range also includes our Freygaard Choco Roasting Joint, our very own Tom Hixson Wagyu Tri-Tip, Hereford Picanha, Beef Bavette, and more.

What is the Best Alternative Cut of Beef for Roasting?

Find unique, yet just as flavoursome alternative beef joints for your next festive or Sunday dinner. What you choose is up to your preferences and your preferred flavours, but all the beef cuts we carry offer sublime textures and flavours. The Freygaard Choco Roasting Joint is masterfully carved from the silverside and is known for its depth of flavour. For the best results, we suggest a slow cooked roast. This tenderises the meat and allows the rich flavours to render throughout the joint.

If you love a beef cut with sensational marbling, order the Miguel Vergara Aberdeen Angus Roasting Joint. The cattle’s tranquil lifestyle and comfortable living conditions allow for the development and maturation of intramuscular fat, resulting in tender, flavoursome beef.
