I had 8 mouths to feed at my New Year’s Eve get together so I decided to do something special. I visited my local butcher, Carnivore, which was an awesome experience. All their meat is local and the butchers really know their stuff.


I loosely followed this Jamie Oliver recipe but used 3kg of beef brisket on the bone and cooked it for 5 hours.


I removed the beef from the pans once cooked so I could pull it, and then sieved the sauce because it became rather fatty. I added some chilli and paprika, and simmered for 10 mins to make a spicy tomato sauce.

I served the pulled beef with rice and kidney beans, nachos, homemade guacamole, sour cream and grated cheddar.

I surprised myself as it was incredibly delicious and a total bargain at £2.50 per person.
