Barbecue Season Has Arrived!

Posted on Apr 22, 2015 in In the butchers | 0 comments

Have you smelled that familiar whiff of burning charcoal blended with mouthwatering meat aromas? The recent burst of good weather has kickstarted barbecue season perhaps a touch earlier than usual! As we all know, we Brits have to make hay (or, in this case, burgers) while the sun shines. So, if you haven’t had your inaugural barbecue feast for 2015, we suggest you get down to New Street Butchers with all haste. Your BBQ spread can be simple, with our classic own-recipe burgers and sausages. Or, you can opt for stronger flavours, with kebabs, ribs and joints inspired by all sorts of world cuisines. Mexican chicken, Piri Piri chicken, Kentucky Chicken, Pork Ribs in Chinese Sauce — we like to think that every taste is catered for. You can find a full list of our BBQ products, and a downloadable price list,...

Old Fashioned Food & the Whiff of Nostalgia

Posted on Oct 21, 2014 in Homemade, In the butchers, In the deli | 0 comments

Have you noticed how good, old-fashioned food is making a comeback? A ‘real food’ revolution began a few years back, when the recession refocussed families on cooking from scratch, rather than spending a fortune on expensive ready meals. Real food also gets the seal of approval from nutritionists who are rightly sceptical of low-fat, high sugar foods, and those with lots of ingredients most people would struggle to pronounce. As we increasingly worry what’s in processed foods, it can only be a good thing to keep things simple. Fresh ingredients, and less of them, means we know what we eat! But apart from money and health concerns, why are we making for ‘vintage classic’ recipes? The answer is: nostalgia! Flavours and aromas that remind us of granny’s kitchen offer a wonderful sense of comfort. What did your nan make when you were a kid? Steak & kidney pudding? Spotted dick? Can’t you just taste it even as you think back? Don’t you feel warm and cosy and safe casting your mind back to those times? If time pressure is the only thing keeping you from the wonderfully reassuring foods of yesteryear, then New Street Butchers has the answer.  We are making old favourites like steak & kidney pudding, bacon puddings and faggots, by hand, using our own simple, family recipes (probably very similar to your gran’s). We even do the onion gravy to go with them! If you really want to step back in time, we also sell pig cheek, ox cheek and ox tail, cuts that are undergoing a bit of a ‘fashion’ moment right now. You can find simple recipes to cook these  meats. Check out Nigel Slater’s books, as he’s a fan… He describes pigs cheeks as “plump, unctuous porcine cushions that fall apart on your fork”. He continues, “Cheeks are as good-natured a cut as you will find, calmly doing their own thing in a low oven, slowly edging their way towards tenderness. An occasional stir, a turn or two, that is all they need. Oh, and a lid, they must have a lid, to stop them drying out and the cooking liquor evaporating.” If you’re hankering for flavours from your past, come on by to New Street Butchers and let us take you back in...

Rootin’ Tootin’ Meat Feastin’ July 4th

Posted on Jun 12, 2014 in In the butchers | 0 comments

Independence Day, Fourth of July, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. Now, while technically that’s nothing to celebrate over this side of the pond, we think that a lot of water has gone under the bridge since then and it seems as good an excuse for a party as any! Particularly as Independence Day is a prime time for family get togethers where vast amounts of tasty meaty fayre is consumed. As it happens, New Street Butchers has plenty of USA style food for barbecues and picnics, so why not hop on over to stock up for an American themed July 4th celebration? You will find that lots of the marinates we use are inspired by recipes that originate stateside. Lip-smacking marinated meats include: Memphis Style Sweet Honey & Mustard Pork Ribs Jalapeno & Lime Chicken Butterfies Smoked Baby Racks Ribs (Pork) Southern Style Chicken Thighs And if you’re getting the BBQ fired up on July 4th, how about these for some smokin’ ideas? 21 Day Dry Aged Rib Eye Steaks Homemade 1/4 Pound Burgers Beef Short Ribs That is probably enough to fill up a hungry cowboy’s belly, but if you’re still hankering for more, then pop over to the New Street Butchers Deli where you will find Rufus Teague Marinades straight from Kansas City, plus a range of chilli sauces and meat rubs. Yeehaaa! Happy Fourth of July...

BBQ Season Kicks Off in Horsham

Posted on May 14, 2014 in In the butchers | 0 comments

Watch out, the men folk in your family are about to summon their inner cave men! “Man make fire. Man cook meat on fire. Man feed family!” Yes, that’s right: Barbecue season is upon us. The good news is that the hunter of your household doesn’t need a spear to claim his prey, nor does he require sticks to rub together to make a fire. We’ve made his job easy by stocking up on everything he needs to provide a barbecued feast for his family, right down to the charcoal. Thank goodness for progress! To be honest, the hunter gatherers of Horsham are a fairly civilised bunch. They appreciate top quality, free range meat; they’re partial to homemade spicy and herby seasonings; and they are rather fond of tangy marinades and glazes. If last year’s anything to go by, they will be congregating at our shop this weekend to stock up on all of the above. They will be taking advantage of our great value 3 for £10 offer on some of our BBQ packs to make sure that they have plenty of tasty burgers, sausages, kebabs, ribs and other BBQ delicacies to throw on their grill. The weather forecast predicts a scorcher on Saturday and there isn’t a drop of rain forecast to dampen spirits, so please come to New Street Butchers for some hunting and gathering, Horsham...
