A Bridlington beef business has chosen National BBQ Week to launch its summer menu of gourmet beef burgers.
Thornholme family business, Manor Farm Beef has introduced two new flavours in addition to its popular regular burgers that are hand made using 100 per cent prime Yorkshire beef, herbs and spices and Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil.
The new gourmet “Biltong Burgers” have been developed because of the popularity of Manor Farm’s Yorkshire Beef Biltong.
They are made from 8oz of minced beef that is flavoured with the special blend of herbs and spices that is found in the original Biltong and the new “Stuffed Beer Burgers” are made from Manor Farm Beef, Wolds Cottage Kitchen boozy caramelised red onion chutney with Wold Top Brewery’s Headland Red Ale, with an extra splash of Headland Red for good measure.
Charlotte Shipley from Manor Farm Beef said
“There were over three million BBQ’s held during National BBQ Week last year and beef burgers are one of the most popular BBQ foods.
“Since the horsemeat situation, sales of our beefburgers have rocketed because people know that the beef has only come from our farm, that I make them without preservatives or additives and that they make a tasty and nutritious meal for all of the family.
“An added bonus for coeliacs is that all of our burgers are gluten free as they’re made from 100 per cent beef and don’t need to be bulked out with rusk.”
National BBQ Week is the UK’s Annual Celebration of Better Barbecuing and heralds the start of a summer long celebration of alfresco eating, entertaining and barbecues.
The burgers will be on sale uncooked at forthcoming Driffield and Hovingham farmers’ markets and cooked at the Wold Top Brewery and Hunmanby Grange Open Day on 1st and 2nd June.
Owned by Chris and Charlotte Shipley, Manor Farm Beef rears pedigree Belted Galloway, British Blue and Limousin cattle that are specially bred and fed to produce the best possible taste and texture.
The are all born at Manor Farm and spend all of their lives grazing lush pastures before going for slaughter at 30 months (as opposed to the industry standard of 16 months). The beef is then sold through selected restaurants, Manor Farm Yorkshire Beef Boxes, food festivals and farmers’ markets.
