The Original Aussie Butcher
At The Aussie Butcher we are proud to say that we only stock “quality mark” Beef and Lamb. This means the customer is guaranteed to get only the best “New Zealand” Beef and Lamb available.
Not imported second or third grade meat which some of our competitors seem happy to do. We stock all the traditional beef and lamb cuts that you would expect to find at your local butcher like chops, steaks, roasts, casserole and stewing cuts, barbeque cuts, slow cooker cuts, stir fry, mince and much more.
All of our prime steaks like scotch fillet, rump steak, sirloin steak and eye fillet have been aged in our own chillers for at least two to three weeks before we slice them. The ageing process involves taking all of these prime beef cuts and vacuum packing them. What then happens is the natural enzymes found in the meat break down the muscle tissue and that’s when the meat becomes tenderer to the bite and full of flavour.
We have a great selection of beef and lamb roasts, bone in or bone out. beef roasts like topside, bolar, wing rib, standing rib, eye fillet and all our rolled beef roasts are trimmed and rolled on the premises daily by qualified tradesmen with no short cuts made, so you know you are getting a roast rolled roast beef like it was 50 years ago. Some lamb roasts include bone in lamb leg, boneless lamb leg, bone in lamb shoulders, boneless lamb shoulders, lamb racks and lamb shanks.
We also have an extensive range of “value added”beef and lamb cuts that you may not find in other meat retail outlets. value added means we take a traditional cut of meat and we add value to this product removing bones or adding other ingredients to the product to make it more interesting. some of these products include , marinated and butterflied lamb legs and shoulders, boneless lamb noisettes, crusted lamb racks, boneless stuffed beef and lamb roasts, beef wellington, blue cheese filled steaks, beef and lamb kebabs, homemade burger patties and many more.
All of these products are backed up by well trained butchers who can give you great easy to follow cooking instructions and ideas on any of our products, and if there is a cut of meat for that special recipe you like just tell one of our friendly staff and we will be more than happy to make that happen.
