Beef from Brakes

Our outstanding range of this versatile, ever-popular meat delivers on frozen, chilled and even ready slow-cooked products to suit all kitchen requirements and menu styles.

Why choose Brakes beef?

With a mix of chilled and frozen lines our beef is fully traceable back to source and complies with all of Brakes technical standards.

We offer a variety of cuts and pack sizes. Independent customers can buy in small or large quantities, while high volume users will benefit from a selection of products available in larger pack sizes.

Meet Brongain Farm

We’re passionate about animal welfare, and Brongain Farm shares this commitment. In the heart of the Welsh countryside, this idyllic location is home to the farm’s herd of grass and grain-fed Aberdeen Angus.

The site is also used as a key development location for ethical standards. From procurement of its calves to the processing of finished animals, the farm has a fully integrated supply chain which focuses on sourcing and selling with care in the local area. Their community-first approach has boosted the skill base in the area, with all employees living within a five-mile radius of the farm.

Steaks

We source our steaks from known and trusted farmers and the focus of our range is on consistency, thickness and fantastic flavour.
Choose our new 10oz Ribeye, popular for its rich marbling and depth of flavour and ideal for mid-week steak nights. Or for a deluxe option, our fillet steaks are a cut above.
Our 28-day aged Birchstead range, which comes from breed-named Aberdeen Angus, delivers rich, tender meat as naturally occurring enzymes break down muscle fibre and unlock a deeper flavour.

STEAK SHORT BITES

Steak cooking times

There’s more than one version of the ‘perfect steak’. From blue through to well done, high-end fine dining, or cooking for the café crowd, our short video helps you get your timings and temperatures spot on to deliver on taste and texture however the order comes in.

Cook the perfect steak

From selecting the right pan, whether to use oil or butter, the right amount of heat and how long it should be rested. Former Michelin Star chef Mark Sargeant shows you how.

How about a Ramen?

Give steak some kick and colour with Mark Sargeant’s Birchstead Sirloin Steak Ramen recipe. Quick to cook and full of flavour its combination of store cupboard and fresh, everyday ingredients delivers great tasting beef with an east Asian vibe.

Mark Sargeant says...

“We were buying 35-day aged steaks which tasted nice and were tender, but they weren’t juicy. Customers weren’t always happy so we got in a Birchstead wet aged, vacuum packed steak from Brakes and did a comparison. The wet aged steak was far juicier and more tender, so we made the switch. Now that customers get a premium experience the steaks fly out the door!”
