Get your hands on the creme de la creme of slabs, cuts, and racks this holiday season at the one and only Huber's Butchery
Honestly, nothing beats a tender, melt-in-your-mouth slice of meat that warms the belly (multiply that feeling by 10 if you buy bottles of wine and add that into the mix). If you want exactly that for yourself and your guests at those year-end parties you’ll be hosting at home, then place your orders with Huber’s Butchery for everything that’s needed to satisfy discerning carnivores at the dining table.
For Christmas, you can’t go wrong with the traditional whole turkey. Huber’s uses frozen turkey that’s been brined to ensure you get one juicy bird. For fuss-free prep, consider having it defrosted, marinated (olive oil, salt, spices, sage, rosemary, and marjoram), and stuffed (choose from three house-made options: chestnut, sage, or chicken and mixed mushroom) (from $71 per piece) so that all you have to do when you get home is pre-heat the oven to 160 degrees Celsius and roast it.
Not a fan of turkey or thinking about doing something a little different this year? Huber’s recommends four alternative meats worth the calories and extra time at the gym (did you think you were gonna get away scot-free with all this culinary goodness?).
There’s the super tasty ham hock that’s salted and glazed with honey ($25 per kilogram). It feeds two to three people so it’s perfect for small, intimate gatherings. However, if you need something a lot more substantial for bigger get-togethers, there are options like duck, goose, and even suckling pig.
Huber’s ducks ($20 per kilogram) weigh about two kilograms each, and you’ll need a 45 centimetre oven to cook them. They’re slightly more flavourful compared to turkey, works for about four to six people, and are not too fatty. On the other hand, if you want a fattier choice of poultry that’s great for eight to 10 people, go for the goose ($29 per kilogram). The ones on sale at Huber’s are about four kilograms heavy, and preparing them would require a 60 centimetre oven.
Pork lovers wouldn’t be able to resist a good roast and the crackling skin that comes with it. Huber’s suckling pig (loin and belly, rolled, $39.50 per kilogram) is actually available all year ’round and takes slightly over an hour to cook in the oven, but believe us when we say it’s worth the wait. It’s crispy on the outside and oh-so-juicy on the inside! Each piece weighs slightly less than two kilograms, so if you are expecting a crowd, consider making one of these in addition to another main of your choice.
