Taste of the Week. Irish Piedmontese Beef
Taste of the Week
Irish Piedmontese Beef
Enjoyed watching the cattle going through their make-up routine for the various competitions at the Cork Summer Show. Later on though, thoughts turned to dinner. Lots of ready to eat food on sale at the show but it was in the Irish Piedmontese stand that I found what I was looking for. Indeed, I knew I would get a couple of delicious steaks here as I’ve often done before in various food festivals around Munster.
So even before heading for home, I knew I had my Taste of the Week. These steaks are succulent and juicy and, washed down with a bottle of Beaujolais (Clos les Charmes, Moulin-a-Vent), they tasted even better. And apparently, they are quite healthy, lower in fat than chicken or fish. Check it all out, including recipes, here.
The meat comes from two herds, one in Tipperary, the other in Laois, and they were also selling ready to eat offerings at the show. But I had my eye on their fridge and that also contained burgers and minced beef. You can find the friendly Irish Piedmontese guys at many shows. But if you can’t get to one, be sure and try the online shop (delivery is free for orders over 70 euro).
