Best Meats For Summer

The Best Meat Dishes For Summer

25th August 2022

With only a few weeks left of summer, many of us will be trying to make the most of what little time we have left. From last minute weekend trips to the beach, to sunbathing on your lunch break, there are still many ways you can enjoy what we have left of this bright season. One such way is by indulging in some of the most traditional summer dishes. 

The UK has seen one of the driest and hottest summers on record, with multiple long standing records being broken and even parts of the country seeing droughts. Because of this, many of us have attempted to cool down in any way we can. This sentiment is very much echoed in our food choices. When it comes to food choices on hot summer days, you will want something that helps you to cool down while not comprising on flavour. 

As an esteemed meat supplier from Staffordshire, we thought why not detail some of the best meat dishes for the summer period. 

Steak and Salad

We start with arguably the most quintessential meat based summer dish. During hot summer days, there are few foods as refreshing and cooling as salad. One of the many positives of salads is the fact that the food can be incredibly diverse as well as cooling and tasty. Salads can include all manner of cooked vegetables. The side can also be topped off with a delightful salad dressing.

When it comes to taste, there are few meats as succulent and mouth watering as the famous steak. Whether you opt for a high quality Ribeye steak or mouth watering Rump cut, we can guarantee that a steak will not leave you disappointed. 

Chicken and Rice

When temperatures are hot and the sun is shining, you will want your dishes to be light and refreshing as opposed to heavy and bloating. One of the best light meals is unquestionably chicken and rice. 

Accompanying the fact that chicken and rice is decidedly light, the dish also packs an impressive flavourful punch as well as containing all manner of beneficial proteins and fibres. The next time you are in search of a light dish on a summer’s day, you really can’t go wrong with chicken and rice. 

Pork Ribs, Corn on the Cob and Coleslaw 

From one great source of protein to another. Pork ribs might not be at the top of most wholesale butchers speciality lists, however, there is little doubt this cut of pork goes down a treat on a hot day. 

Pork ribs are fantastic finger food that you can enjoy in a variety of summer scenarios, such as at a garden barbecue, and with a variety of different side dishes. We might suggest opting for a corn on the cob and coleslaw to accompany the pork ribs already on your plate. During the summer, these delightful side dishes are much lighter and appealing. 

Meatballs and Spaghetti 

One of the quintessential Italian dishes is also one of the best dishes for a beautiful summer evening. Spaghetti and meatballs might conjure up images of times you enjoyed the dish in a beachside restaurant on your holiday, however, the plate can still be enjoyed in the UK, especially on a hot summer’s day. In fact, doing so might metaphorically transport you back to that gleeful summer moment. 

Burgers and Hotdogs

Are there more barbecue foods as essential as burgers and hotdogs? In one of our most recent blogs, we touched on how the Great British barbecue is one of the most important parts of any summer, and the barbecue would be incomplete without the main staples; burgers and hotdogs. 

At The Catering Butcher, we supply great quality meat at competitive prices. From the previously mentioned meats to other diverse and dynamic cuts. We have every cut you might want from a typical wholesale meat supplier. So why not contact us today?
