These are certainly the most popular and well-loved cuts of lamb. It’s really no surprise as they are so delicious and tender. Best for frying, roasting, grilling, broiling and braaing.
This cut is absolutely mouthwatering when roasted whole on the bone, or boned and slapped on the braai. It’s always a good cut to choose when you’re entertaining a big group.
Any South African will tell you this cut is where the flavour is found. When cooked well, this slow-roasting or even stewing favourite serves up tasty meat that simply falls off the bone.
Serving up lamb riblets is a firm South African braai favourite. Best enjoyed slightly pink and juicy, these can be seasoned with just a sprinkle of pepper or marinaded to a specific taste.
If you’re looking for a more inexpensive cut that really goes a long way, then the lamb shank is for you. It’s perfect for stews and slow cooking and often a go-to for broth recipes.
A versatile cut, this can be treated like a steak and cooked quickly over high heat until pink or it can be cooked slowly on low heat like the shoulder. Also, a firm favourite for stews.

Cook with flavourful, lean, all-purpose meatballs that are so tender they will practically melt in your mouth, no matter the recipe! Enjoy with pasta or as appetizers.
Venison patties are considerably leaner than beef, pork or lamb while still locking in all of the succulent flavour you want from a burger. Also, a wonderful option for the braai.
Compared to traditional breakfast sausages, these Venison options are low in fat, high in protein, and rich in sweet, smoky flavour. This makes them guilt-free, easy and delicious.
Need a versatile, health-conscious meat choice? Try ostrich! Ours is naturally low in saturated fat, deliciously rich in flavour and also 100% South African.
Serving up just as much texture and hearty flavour as beef, a mouthwatering ostrich rump, ribeye or even prego steak cannot be beaten! Tasty and health-conscious.
These delightful meatballs allow you to tuck into a healthier red meat alternative without losing any sense of indulgence and decadence. The kids also love them!
When it comes to great taste and healthy eating, a melt-in-your-mouth ostrich rump is a truly superior roasting choice. Also, great for winter comfort food!
Locally sourced, versatile and full of flavour, try our pork cuts endorsed by the SA Chefs Association.
This cut has an abundance of marbling – ribbons of fat that melt into the lean meat as it is cooked, delivering a robust buttery flavour. This makes it less likely to dry out when cooked.
Porterhouse pork steaks are taken from the loin and as such have less fat content than a typical rib-eye steak. This makes it a great alternative for those looking for a leaner meal.
Pork fillet, aka tenderloin, makes for a great starter. It can also be roasted or grilled whole for a quick weeknight dinner or slice crosswise (like beef fillet medallions) and then sauté it.
Pork belly is succulent and richly flavoured, especially when slow-cooked. If delicious and crispy pork crackling is what you’re after, this is most certainly the pork cut for you.
Similar to beef rump, this pork cut offers a delicious, tender piece of meat and is ideally cooked on a griddle or braai. Smaller than beef rump, it's perfect for smaller portions.
