Product Description

Waitrose British Veal Rib Joint

Waitrose veal is supplied by one farmer in East Anglia, who has been supplying Waitrose and Ocado since the early 90's. All the veal we sell is British and comes from calves that are born and reared on British farms. The British calves are reared and housed in well-ventilated buildings with plenty of natural light and straw bedding. They're fed a diet of Milk, Water and Cereal, that produces tender delicate meat. There is a close working relationship between the dairy farmers and beef producers to ensure that male calves from Waitrose milk production are offered a viable outlet in Waitrose Beef and veal production.

delicious slow cook

Thanks to the earlier review I slow cooked this and it was indeed delicious. I browned it first as suggested and then did 5 hours at 125 degrees. Moist, tender and flavoursome meat, strongly recommended.

A treat

Exceptional veal rib joint for roasting makes a wonderful Sunday lunch treat. Don't overcook though as best served just a little pink in the middle.

Beautiful meat

Lovely and tasty tender meat. I've ordered this twice and each time it has been fantatic. This kind of meat needs to be cooked slowly and gently to ensure it stays moist and full of flavour. My advice for cooking..... Season the veal with some sea salt e.g. Maldon but NOT pepper. Heat a large heavy frying pan until it is smoking hot and then add some grapeseed oil and wait until the oil is smoking. Be brave! Then put the veal in to the oil, fat side down and fry for a minute, then turn over to the non-fat side and fry for 20seconds. Repeat this three or four times until the fat has crispened and browned. Meanwhile heat an oven to an ultra low temperature e.g. no more then 60degrees celcius. Put the veal into an oven tray, a little larger than the meat but not too big, fat side up. Cook until the internal temperature of the meat reaches between 55 to 60degrees celcius, which is between 12 to 14 hours of cooking time. Take the meat out and put on a rack over a plate to rest for AT LEAST one hour. Prior to serving you can season with pepper if you wish!

rib on the bone

rather surprised first time, doesn't quite say it's on the bone, which it should really make clear. scrapped plans for casserole and roasted it with great success

While we have taken care in preparing this summary and, to the best of our knowledge, believe it is accurate you should note that the summary product information (in particular the "Other Information" section) may change between the time you place your order on the website and the time your order is delivered (in this regard we rely on our suppliers to tell us of any changes in a timely manner so we can update our website). For example, as all meat and fish products are naturally farmed, there may be occasions when due to weather conditions we may need to source from alternative approved sources (and hence the product origin may change). Therefore, if you do require the most up-to-date product information following delivery of your order, please ensure you check the website for details.
If the summary product information contains a link to another party's website for further information on the product, please note that Ocado has no control over and no liability for the contents of that website.
You also need to be aware that for those service counter goods where we offer additional preparation services (ie removal of the head and tail of a fish or for a rack of lamb to be cut into cutlets), the price will be calculated based on the weight of the whole fish before the head and tail have been removed and the lamb rack before it has been cut into cutlets, should you request this service. The receipt and product label you receive will also show the actual weight of the whole fish and/or lamb rack (before the head and tail of the fish has been removed and the lamb rack has been cut into cutlets).
You should note that the picture images show only our serving suggestions of how to prepare your food - all table accessories and additional items and/or ingredients pictured with the product you are purchasing are not included.
