Ten Summer Favourites

Summer evokes the smell of the barbecue, the salty taste of seawater and the tender touch of sunburnt skin. We dream all year of corn on the cob, sunkissed strawberries and perfectly barbecued steaks. It’s about big bowls of garden-fresh salad, crunchy garlic bread and stealing lamb chops off the plate when no one’s looking.

We’ve gathered our favourite summer recipes to help keep you inspired with new and fresh ideas for the dinner table.

Beef n Beer Tacos

We adore tacos in summer. Turn on the slow cooker while you and the family head to the beach and come home to beautifully tender beef to fill soft tacos with. Lay out all the fillings on the table and let everyone help themselves.

Ginger Lamb Satays with Thai Dipping Sauce

Kebabs are the kings of summer dining. Great for kids and adults, everyone loves food on a stick. A great marinade can totally change the vibe and this ginger combo is a true winner.

Thai Beef Salad

Thai beef salads are one of the most popular searched items on our website and with good reason! Here’s Andrew Clarkes masterpiece, which is a herby, spicy delight.

Lamb Burger

Keep it simple and nothing is more simple than a great burger. A great pile of salad and good quality buns and this will be a go-to dinner in a heartbeat.

Lamb Parmigiana

An Italian inspired schnitzel that combines the fresh, creaminess of mozzarella with the delicate flavour of lamb while the tomato and zucchini are heroes of the summer garden.

Middle Eastern Meatball Wraps

These are the ultimate ‘assemble your own’ dinner – simply put everything on the table and allow everyone to help themselves! Grab some pre-made meatballs from your butcher to make it more convenient.

Vietnamese Rice Paper Rolls

Kids love getting involved and rolling these healthy little bundles. We use leftover steak and lots of crunchy vegetables, but leftover lamb is equally delicious.

Mexi Mince Beef Buns

A great value, crowd pleasing favourite, these buns are moorish and hard to resist. Serve with a crunchy slaw, sour cream and a fresh tomato salsa.

Summer Steak Salad with Salsa Verde and Mushrooms

Take a standard salad to the next level with this fresh and filling salad. The cannellini beans can be swapped for chickpeas and it’s still fabulous.

Vietnamese Beef and Noodle Salad

Use whichever cut of beef you have on hand for this punchy, vibrant salad. Fresh, healthy and importantly… delicious.
