This time next week we’ll be celebrating Good Friday. For many of us, this means we’ll be busy in the Kitchen on both Friday and Sunday and on Easter Monday too! Traditionally, lamb is eaten on Easter, but having lamb for each of the three days can certainly become tiresome. With that in mind, we have three different beef recipes that we hope you’ll enjoy trying out in your own kitchens at home.
Peppercorn Crusted Beef Tenderloin
If you want an easy but still impressive recipe why not try your hand at the peppercorn crusted beef tenderloin. The crust is made from cracked black, white and green peppercorns. You can still cook the recipe with only black peppercorns if you don’t have white or green to hand. Ask your butcher for 3lbs of trimmed Hereford beef tenderloin, preferably centre cut.

Roast Côte de Boeuf
The Roast Côte de Boeuf is like a really big beef chop, it’s one rib from a traditional roast beef. Hereford beef is perfect for this recipe as it’s a really juicy and the natural marbling just adds to the flavourings. Serve with some roast potatoes and seasonal veg. Find the recipe here along with some ideas for a starter and desert too.
Hereford Rib with Kumquats
This is an impressive centrepiece that never fails to impress thanks to the kumquat and orange liquor glaze. Ask your butcher for 6lb of lean fore rib of Hereford beef, French trimmed. You can also use a topside joint if you prefer. Don’t forget to pick up some kumquats and clementines or satsumas while you’re out. Click here for the full ingredients and method.
Don’t forget, if you don’t fancy cooking you can always treat the family to a meal out at one of these fantastic restaurants.
