Keep the veal topside wrapped securely in its original packaging or place it in an airtight container to prevent any exposure to air or odors. Properly stored, the veal topside can be refrigerated for up to 2-3 days. If you plan to store it for a longer period, you can also freeze the veal topside.

This pack contains 1 piece.
Your item will arrive in a 100% recycled box lovingly packed with FSC-certified shredded spruce from Britain and Sweden, natural sheep’s wool insulation and non-toxic chilled gel packs, all of which can be reused, composted or recycled. To recycle the gel packs, simply cut a corner and dispose of the contents through your normal domestic waste system, as the gel isn’t harmful to the environment. Better still, reuse them by storing in the freezer and chilling other products. The only component from our packaging that can’t be recycled are the foil liners which need to be go in household waste; the poly bags meat comes in needs to go in plastic recycling.

Here’s cooking instruction for Veal Topside:

1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
2. Season the veal topside with salt and pepper on all sides.
3. Heat a large oven-safe skillet or roasting pan over medium-high heat on the stove.
4. Add a tablespoon of cooking oil, such as vegetable or olive oil, to the pan and swirl it around to coat the bottom.
5. Carefully place the veal topside in the hot pan and sear it on all sides until it develops a golden-brown crust. This should take about 2-3 minutes per side.
6. Once the veal topside is seared, transfer the skillet or roasting pan to the preheated oven.
7. Roast the veal topside in the oven for about 20-25 minutes per pound (450-550 grams). Cooking time may vary depending on the size and thickness of the cut, so it’s important to use a meat thermometer to check for doneness.
8. Insert a meat thermometer into the thickest part of the meat. The internal temperature should reach 145°F (63°C) for medium-rare or 160°F (71°C) for medium.
9. Once the desired temperature is reached, remove the veal topside from the oven and transfer it to a cutting board.
10. Let the meat rest for about 10 minutes before slicing. This allows the juices to redistribute and ensures a moist and tender result.
11. Slice the veal topside against the grain into thin slices and serve it with your favorite side dishes or sauces.

Enjoy your delicious veal topside!
