Refrigeration: Upon receiving your Corner-Cut Topside of Beef, promptly store it in the refrigerator at a temperature between 32°F (0°C) and 40°F (4°C). Refrigeration helps inhibit bacterial growth and preserves the beef’s quality.

Packaging: If the beef is in an unopened vacuum-sealed package, you can store it directly as is. If the packaging has been opened, wrap the beef tightly in plastic wrap or place it in an airtight container to prevent exposure to air and moisture.

Airtight Container: Utilize an airtight container or wrap the beef securely to maintain its moisture and prevent it from absorbing any unwanted odors from other foods in the refrigerator.

Avoid Cross-Contamination: When storing other food items in the same refrigerator, ensure that the West Country Corner-Cut Topside of Beef is separated to prevent cross-contamination. Use separate shelves or designated areas if available.

Use-By Date: Check the “Use-By” or “Best Before” date on the packaging and cook the beef before this date for optimal freshness and flavor. If the beef has exceeded the recommended date, it is advisable to discard it.

By following these storage recommendations, you can keep your West Country Corner-Cut Topside of Beef fresh and ready to be prepared into delectable meals.

This pack contains 1kg.
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.


Preparation: Remove the West Country Corner-Cut Topside of Beef from the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature for about 30 minutes. This allows for more even cooking.

Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C). Season the beef generously with salt and pepper or your preferred seasonings, ensuring all sides are coated.

Searing: Heat a large oven-safe skillet or roasting pan over medium-high heat. Add a small amount of oil and sear the beef on all sides until browned. This helps to seal in the juices and enhance the flavor.

Roasting: Transfer the seared beef to the preheated oven and roast for approximately 20 minutes per pound (0.45 kg) for medium-rare doneness. Adjust the cooking time based on your preferred level of doneness. Use a meat thermometer to monitor the internal temperature. For medium-rare, aim for an internal temperature of 130-135°F (54-57°C).

Resting: Once the desired internal temperature is reached, remove the beef from the oven and let it rest on a cutting board for about 15-20 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute and ensures tender and juicy meat.

Carving: Slice the West Country Corner-Cut Topside of Beef against the grain into thin slices for maximum tenderness. Serve the succulent beef alongside your favorite accompaniments and enjoy!

Note: Cooking times may vary depending on the size and thickness of the beef, so it’s crucial to use a meat thermometer to ensure the desired level of doneness. Remember to allow for additional cooking time if you prefer your beef more well-done.
