Description

A traditional British favourite, commonly used for roasting or braising, and a fantastic introduction to our heritage beef. Sourced exclusively from grass fed herds to ensure only the best flavour, our Topsides are characteristically lean and tender, and are only dispatched after being dry aged, and judged ready by our Master Butcher.

How to cook

A great value joint, boasting the deep flavour that make our grass fed British beef so special. The Topside as a roasting joint is quite lean, so be sure not to let it dry out. While it can be sliced and braised, the Topside is also ideal for a traditional roast dinner centrepiece, served alongside roast potatoes, seasonal vegetables, and creamy horseradish sauce.

About the cut

Topside

The Topside is a staple of British butcher's boards, offering an affordable roasting joint cut from the inner thigh of the hindquarter of the beast. A popular joint that never seems to go out of fashion, our beef Topsides are dry aged to tenderise the meat, before being trimmed, boned and rolled on the butcher's block.

About the breed

Highland

The flower of Scottish cattle breeding

Tasting notes:

Region:

The Highland is an instantly recognisable Scottish favourite, and a true heritage breed. Its shaggy coat and short legs mean it is well suited to grazing on steep valley sides or on windswept moors, in often tough conditions. Its unqiue long in the mouth flavour results from the Highland taking longer to mature. This lets the flavour develop naturally, giving it an almost gamey character. This, and the fact the Highland is well marbled but not excessively so, makes this beef very popular with chefs.
