Beef + Bacon = Beef Bacon!

After seeing this video, resident cook-a-holic Jono, tried his hand at this seriously awesome thing called Beef Bacon! Oh yeah! I bet that your attention. The meat gods have deliciously answered our prayers. We love Beef. We love Bacon. We've fallen head over hoofs for Beef Bacon! You'll be needing beef belly/navel to make this beefy bacon. In order to get that spectacular flavour, you'll be needing to cook your beef bacon in beef tallow (beef fat). We promise it is totally worth it! But its cool if you want to cook your bacon in the oven instead. All you've got to do is lay them out on a rack over the tray that will catch all the dippy fat and slide the whole thing into a preheated oven at190 degrees. Watch those babies roast away until they are the most delectable crispy, golden brown. In the oil or in the oven, either way, you'll be needing to slice the beef into thin bacon strips, the thicker you cut them, the chewier they become due to a membrane that runs down the middle. Be sure to tag us and let us know what you think of this wickedly yum idea!

These rounds of beefy goodness will soon become your best friend in the kitchen.

These rounds of beefy goodness will soon become your best friend in the kitchen. May we introduce to you the Oxtail. Before you panic, they're not from actual Oxen, unlike the olden days. Like all great things, Oxtail comes from humble begins just like the tomato. Oxtail was seen as a poor mans food, because of its lack of meat but meat is not what makes this cut an unsung hero! Oxtail doesn't usually star as the king of a dish but rather work quietly in the background of stocks, soups and stews adding a ton of flavour layers, providing a rich thick gelatinous body which gives dishes a whole new dimension of depth.

Rounding out our top 5 ways to save is Go Raw for More Carpaccio and Tartare

Another great way to stretch your meat budget are these classic raw dishes. While some people might baulk at raw meat dishes, I can't count the number of times I've served Steak Carpaccio to "Well Done Only" friends who turn around and admit that they loved it. Carpaccio (see image above) is made by thinly slicing steak (typically Eye fillet) and laying out on a plate. Putting the steak in the freezer long enough for it to semi-freeze can help getting extra thin slices. Once on the plate, I like to simply dress with generous amounts of capers, shaved Parmesan, rocket olive oil and lemon juice or balsamic.

He's hearty, stocky and mega rich . ..

No, we aren't describing the next Bachelor (unfortunately), we're talking about the stew that when you eat it feels like a big bear hug. Move over Chicken Soup, Lamb Stew is coming through! Some will argue that Chicken Soup is the meal to heal, mind, body and soul, we beg to differ. Lamb Stew, is just as, if not more soul-satisfyingly delicious. Lamb Stew although rich in flavour and health benefits is a cheap date! That's right you can snag Lamb neck chops or even Lamb BBQ chops for a lot less than you'd think.
