In this second episode of Farmer Angus' Butchery Masterclass, we get busy with the beef.
Butcher Spencer works with the shoulder blade, which is quite difficult to debone but produces three different, popular cuts; a round shoulder steak, a bolo and a flat iron steak.
About Farmer Angus:
Angus McIntosh is Farmer Angus. He grew up on a cattle ranch in Kwa-Zulu Natal and studied Management Accounting at Stellenbosch University, before stockbroking for Goldman Sachs in London for just over four years. Declining the offer of a promotion, he left his job and moved to South Africa, where he built a clay home. With inspiration from various people along the way, he eventually became a biodynamic student, grass farmer and carbon sequestrator.
Farmer Angus is one of two grass fed, pasture-reared beef producers in the Western Cape- it is the only butchery in the country that does not add nitrates or gluten to the meat.
