Butcher’s Selection Rolled Beef Brisket, from British and Irish farms, is matured for 21 days to allow the meat to develop a deep flavour, as well as tenderising it. Our hand-selected brisket is then expertly carved by our butchers to give the best-possible quality of meat at a great price. Brisket might be cheaper than steak cuts of beef, but can be just as delicious when cooked low and slow – as in these recipes.
