Top Quality Meat from the Butcher’s straight to Your Door with Donald Russell

When I was growing up in rural France, we had three butchers’ in our village, for just over a thousand inhabitants. Needless to say, meat came from the butcher’s and it was invariably top quality. On the rare occasions it was not, you just had to say and you would get a more suitable cut. I moved to Paris as a student when I was 19 and I had a butcher’s really close to home. Meat became a treat, but when I could afford it, I would get beef from my local butcher’s shop once a month or so.

Ever since I moved to London 15 years ago (has it really been that long?), I have not once stepped into a butcher’s. I am not sure whether it is because I am not sure where to go, or whether it is a cultural thing or a financial thing. I am not sure, really, but I do know that I love good-quality meat, knowing where it came from, that it has been grass fed and naturally reared.

A tender cut of beef fillet cannot be beaten in my eyes. It is my treat of choice, yet I have not got a local butcher’s I regularly go to. I have no idea whether three is one where I live. When I need a ‘meat fix,’ I get a nice bit of beef fillet from M&S, Waitrose or Tesco.

You can imagine how elated I was when Scottish butcher Donald Russell contacted me asking whether I was interested in trying one of their beef boxes. Erm, yes please! I even called Hubby at work when I received the news.

After spending ages browsing their website (what a tough decision to make!), I settled for the ‘Butcher’s Favourites’ box. Wait for it…

  • 2 Ribeye Steaks
  • 2 Pavé Rump Steaks
  • 440g Minced Steak
  • 4 Medium Classic Steak Burgers
  • 12 Mini Steak Burgers

A few days after making up my mind, I received a large polystyrene box. Rather than throwing it away, I have kept the empty box so I can use it again in the summer as a cool box when we have a party. If you threw it away, I feel the impact on the environment might outweigh the convenience, since polystyrene cannot be recycled locally.

The meat had been kept frozen in there with dry ice, made from carbon dioxide created as a by-product from industrial processes. It would normally be released straight into the atmosphere so using it to keep the meat frozen has a minimal effect on the environment. The dry ice had completely evaporated during the transit, and that is perfectly normal. The meat was frozen solid and it looked good! Here is a photo of a couple of items that were in the box (before it was all devoured).

Our order had been checked by Almida, who had signed a card by hand informing us she had personally checked each item was in mint condition. I liked that personal touch and feel that a human being was on the other side of the ordering process somewhere in Scotland.

On the day I received the box, I placed most of our meat haul in our freezer and kept my least favourite cut, the ribeye steaks in the fridge to defrost for the following night. It really is not normally my favourite cut and I would not buy it, but I surprisingly enjoyed the meat. It was seriously yummy and tender.

I was desperate to try the rump steaks, but decided to keep them for a special occasion as they were my preferred items in the box. We had burgers and chips next, and the children absolutely loved their mini burgers, which were a perfect portion for each of them at approximately 45g each. The fact they wed pure meat also meant I did not have to worry about allergens for Jumpy. We did not miss whatever we normally add to homemade burgers, may it be herbs, spices, onions, eggs or breadcrumbs. It was 100% meat and it was good!

I used the minced steak to make meat balls, once again with nothing added into the meat balls, and they were perfect with my simple, veggie-laden tomato pasta.

We had the rump steaks with plenty of vegetables last week for Wriggly’s birthday, and what a treat it was! Check my tips for cooking steak to perfection here.

A couple of days ago, we had our last bit from the box with scrumptious cheeseburgers. They were so good we did not even have a side with them!

The 2 kilos of beautiful grass fed, naturally reared beef lasted just over 2 months, and I did not buy a single piece of beef anywhere else. The box fed six of us for 5 meals (when we had the rump steaks, the children had mini minced steaks).

Initially, I wondered whether the price tag was worth it, but I have just ordered the ‘Butcher’s Favourites’ again for the start of September as it is on offer at the ridiculously low price of £34 for over 2 kilos of top quality beef (+£5 delivery – regular price £60.25).

If I were to cook the same things as I did when we received our gifted box, the reduced box would cost us an average of £2 per serving (6 of us), considering that our four children have smaller portions. It is a no brainer as it is 10 times better than supermarket-bought meat, and it is quite nice knowing you have some meat in the freezer.

You could win one box of the butcher’s favourites!

    I buy my meat at the same time as I buy the rest of my shopping online at Tesco that’s because i have mobility problems & don’t have the choice of shopping around

    • To be honest, that’s how I get most of my shopping too if my husband isn’t shopping around. Convenience often beats everything else when you’re busy or not as mobile as you’d want to. Hope you’re well.

    At the Supermarket. Though I would much prefer a local, reliable Butcher. I can recall going with my mum to the Butcher’s shop, and she would give him her order. He was very pleasant, friendly. The meats were on display, my mum could clearly see what was on offer. The Butcher would also sell bones for the dog/s. I enjoyed visiting that Butchers with my Mum. And how I wish it was still in Business today.

    Abit of both from supermarket and from my local butchers

  210. M Allen says:

    Most of it comes from the supermarket (Aldi) but I do treat us to something special from a farmers’ market once in a while. It is so much better but hard to keep it up buying for 5, and the kids say they don’t notice the difference anyway. I feel guilty though, I really try to support local farmers by buying direct.

  211. JODIE BEAUMONT says:

    tesco and sometimes local butcher at the market

    It depends what I am after… I buy at both Waitrose and Lidl, but also go to the local butcher if I want a special type of meat, like featherblade or rabbit. I have also bought online before but I am a bit concerned about all the packaging which is being used, ice packs, insulation and the lot. Not in line with my environmental consciousness.

  218. kelly mobbs says:

    Either sainsburys or my local butchers

  219. Stevie says:

  224. Claire Nutman says:

    Tesco x

  225. Emma Walton says:

    I buy most of my meat from Aldi.

  246. I buy the best the supermarket has to offer, or sometimes I can make my way up to my nearest quality butcher. I like to buy better quality less often, if possible, but that’s partly because I always find it a little difficult to figure out which items *are* the better quality ones, so shopping can take a while!

  247. Sue Price says:

    I buy most of my meat from my local supermarket when I do my online shop. If I’m after something special then I always go to my local Independant butcher, but this can be a struggle as I am disabled and find it hard to get out independently a lot of the time.

  248. Rebecca Smith says:

    Supermarket usually but occasionally the butchers

  262. thefolia says:

    Viva la butcher and all the delicious meats…it’s a dying business unfortunately with a not-so-healthy nor conscious industry taking over. I have to get a decent cut from the farmer’s market since the butcher around here is faux and carries meats that I would never eat under brand names.

  263. Victoria Mylittlel says:

    i rarely buy it from butchers, more likely a supermarket

    I usually buy my meat from Sainsburys but I have eaten Donald Russell meat before. My late Father-in-law used to buy from them and he would use the steaks, mince them up by hand and use them in his cottage pie. His cottage pie was legendary! So tasty! Donald Russell meat really is top quality – so is the fish.

    Sadly from our local supermarket as we don’t have a butchers locally, there is one near where I work 20 miles away and I do buy from them on occasion

  277. Jess Mandeville says:

    I used to get some cheap meat from the supermarket, like frozen casserole beef, the kind of stuff I’d just chuck in the slow cooker for a stew so the quality didn’t matter as much. ‘Proper’ meat, like steaks, chicken breasts, joints etc, I’d order from a company called Westin Gourmet. They never let me down, but they have recently changed hands/merged with a body building company which is off-putting, so I need a new decent online butcher to use. This review is swaying me towards Donald Russell 🙂
