  • Christmas Gammon and Three Glazes

    Christmas Gammon and Three Glazes
    Gammon with Honey Mustard Glaze
    By Barry Horne
    1 Gammon (5kg)
    2 Onions
    2 Celery Sticks
    2 Carrots
    500ml Honey
    250g Dijon Mustard
    250g Wholegrain Mustard
    300g Brown Sugar
    Place the gammon in a large pot and cover with water, bring to the boil and, as soon a it reaches boiling point, empty out the water. This will get rid of any excess salt.
    Cover the gammon again with fresh water and add the onion, celery and carrot to the pot. Bring to the boil and lower to a simmer, cook for 40 mins per kilogram.
    Once cooked, take out the gammon to cool. 
    Tip: keep the cooking liquid and use as the base of a good pea and ham soup or just cook your Christmas green vegetables in the same water, as it has plenty of flavour in it.
    When the gammon is cool enough to touch, remove the skin, it should come away easily, and score the flesh lightly.
    Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
    To make the glaze, combine the honey, both mustards and sugar together in a bowl and cover the gammon with it.
    Tip: it is better to do this when the gammon has cooled to stop the glaze running off it.
    Place the glazed ham in the oven and roast for 30-40 minutes, baste every 10 minutes to ensure it’s nicely glazed and coloured.

  • Beef Fillet Tail, with Mimi’s Creamy Mushroom Sauce

    Beef Fillet Tail, with Mimi’s Creamy Mushroom Sauce

    "This recipe heroes a beautiful Provenance Village Butcher beef tail fillet, which is cut into strips, then sealed in a hot pan and lightly simmered in an instant sauce. Most of the recipe is in the prep, thanks to a “cheat” cream sauce using sour cream, flavoured with grain mustard. It is a recipe to cook now, with seasonal mushrooms and beef; Autumn comfort food at its best." Miriam Cooper

    Recipe serves 4-6 people, depending on appetite!


    1 Provenance Village Butcher Beef Tail Fillet (350-400g)
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 organic onion, peeled, halved and sliced
    1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed
    100g sliced mushrooms (2 large flat mushrooms), peeled and sliced lengthways
    1 teaspoon paprika
    1 tub sour cream (300ml)
    1 heaped tablespoon grain mustard
    Black pepper, to season

    To serve
    Cooked egg noodles, with a knob of butter
    25g flat leaf parsley, finely chopped

    Prepare the Village Butcher Beef Tail Fillet, cut across into 2 pieces. Then take each halve and slice into strips of 1cm approx. Place in a bowl and set aside, at room temperature.
    In a large deep frying pan, add 1 tablespoon olive oil and the sliced onion. Sauté gently for 10 minutes, until soft and just golden. Add the crushed garlic and sliced mushrooms a pinch of sea salt and sauté for 4-5 minutes until everything is combined and cooked through. Take off the heat and place the cooked onion and mushrooms on a plate, set aside.
    Place the empty frying pan back on the heat, add 1 tablespoon olive oil and when hot add the beef slices. Sauté on a high heat 3-4 mins, to seal the beef, then return the mushrooms and onions back to the pan. Add the paprika and combine, then pour the sour cream into the pan. Cook for 3-4 mins to warm the sour cream sauce through. As it warms through, stir in 1 heaped tablespoon grain mustard and season with black pepper. Remove from the heat and serve immediately (this recipe won’t keep).
    To serve ~ take warm bowls and add a nest of cooked egg noodles. Cover with the beautiful beef and mushrooms and a spoonful of creamy sauce.

    Mimi’s Chicken Schnitzel, with Homemade Katsu Curry Sauce

    By Miriam Cooper
    This recipe is written for x2 Provenance Village Butcher Chicken Schnitzel, but there would be enough sauce for x4 Schnitzel, should you have more mouths to feed.

    Recipe serves 2 adults, or 4 children
    2 Provenance Village Butcher Chicken Schnitzel
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 organic onion, peeled and diced
    2 medium organic carrots, peeled and diced
    2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
    1 thumb sized piece of fresh ginger, peeled and thinly sliced
    1 tablespoon mild curry powder (for young children use ½ tablespoon)

    1 teaspoon honey (optional)
    1 teaspoon low-salt soy sauce (optional) 
    To serve:
    Cooked rice
    Edamame beans, sugar snap peas, ribbons of fresh carrot

    To make the homemade Katsu sauce ~ take a shallow pan and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and the diced onion. Sauté gently over a medium heat for 5 mins, until translucent. Add the diced carrot and continue to gently sauté, for a further 5 minutes. Next add crushed garlic, finely sliced ginger and mild curry powder (1/2 tablespoon for smaller children), stir continuously for 1-2 mins.  Pour in the stock and bring up to a gentle simmer for 15 minutes, the sauce will cook through and reduce.
    To finish the sauce, add 1 teaspoon of honey for sweetness and 1 teaspoon low-salt soy sauce, for depth of flavour. Then remove from the heat. Once cool, blend with a hand blender until smooth and set aside. Re-heat to serve.
