Recently, I had the chance to taste a range of cooked meats from Tarbet’s fine foods.
I particularly enjoyed the slow roast beef – it was moist and very much like the sort of beef you’d like to cook yourself if you had the time!
As it was chilly, salads for me were out, so I decided to use the meats in other meals. The Oakwood Smoked Ham ham was popped into a white sauce with some of the left over turkey and topped with pastry – yum; the Ham and Arran Mustard ham was chopped and stirred into pasta together with some pesto – delicious and the beef in a sandwich made with really good brown bread and cranberry sauce – perfect!
I rather liked have the meats to hand, it was so simple to create a meal without resorting to ready meals!
