Heart of Rump

£14.40/Kg 4-6

Way better than fish'n chips. This is Argentinas national dish... Corazon de Cuadril.

We can only take you half way there with this one.

Best way to enjoy this cut is to prepare – and eat it - like the Gauchos do.

Under the stars, gathered round a roaring campfire on the Argentinian pampas. Sizzled on the flames.

But, at least, we can do the first half.

And that's provide you with exactly the same cut of beef, so prized by the Gauchos.

Fact is, this is the choicest cut of the rump there is.

It's great for steaks. It's great for roasting. And it's great carpaccio too.

In the tenderness department it rivals Rib Eye and Sirloin.

And it bursts with flavour.

(By the way, if you're a fan of Milanesas, this is the cut to use)

  • What's Delivered?

    Delivered in a vacuum pack.

  • How long will prep take?

    10 minutes

  • Safety Notes

    Take care not to puncture the vacuum pack. Store it below 4°C and never let it get above 7°C. Be gentle with it, if you bang it or drop it the meat will lose some of it's moisture. Don't stack heavy things on top of it either.

  • Refrigeration

    2-3 days

    With fridge set at 1-4 °C

    Hygiene

    Always wash your hands before and after you touch fresh meat. Do the same with any chopping boards you use. And make sure you wipe down any surfaces raw meat has been in contact with.

    Safety

    Never let raw meat come into contact with other food in your fridge. And never – ever - let it come into contact with anything you'd eat straight from the fridge like ham, lettuce or cheese.

    Store it separately in the coldest bit of the fridge. Usually the bottom of the fridge near the back.

    Let the air circulate

    All fresh meat - except bacon or anything in a vacuum pack - needs circulating air so as not to spoil. It does much better in the fridge if it's not covered in plastic. Store it in a bowl and cover it with a paper towel or tea towel, well away from ready to eat foodstuffs

  • Freezing

    Whole 3-4 months

    Sliced 2-3 months


    Freeze meat as quickly as possible. Most of the damage to your meat is done when it's around the 0°C mark, because that's when the ice crystals are at their largest. These crystals puncture the meat so you lose some of the juices when it thaws.

    Once frozen your biggest problem is air

    Any frozen food in contact with the air will dry out and get freezer burn. So make sure anything you freeze is 100% airtight.

    The slower you thaw your meat the less juice is lost. Defrost it in the fridge.
