Dairy Free Beef Mini Roast with Mustard Butter and Seasonal Vegetables Recipe

Cook the mini beef roast to your liking.

Great British Beef Week (23rd April until 1st May) is being celebrated and we have been cooking dairy free beef mini roast with mustard butter and seasonal vegetables to mark the occasion.  We love good quality, versatile, farm assured British beef and mini roasts are always the perfect size for an easy, yet nutritious meal any day of the week.

High Quality Farming

When I was growing up, farming was a big part of my life.  We were always on our family’s dairy farm and as an adult, it has made me more aware of the importance of well cared for cows and finding farm assured, Red Tractor meats to buy.  We just look out for the logo on the meat packs and we feel safe in the knowledge that the meat inside can be traced back to the farms the livestock came from. High standards of hygiene, safety, environmental protection and welfare have been met at every stage of the process, which is indicated by this useful red tractor symbol.

Great British Beef Week Organised by Ladies in Beef

Great British Beef Week is an annual event organised by Ladies in Beef, who care passionately about British beef as they are an organisation of female beef farmers. As with the ladies in my family who work hard on their dairy farm, these ladies are very proud of their work and promote awareness of the quality and versatility of British beef.

Locally Sourced and Seasonal Produce

Living in Lincolnshire, we are very fortunate to have a whole host of locally sourced seasonal produce. At the moment, we have asparagus, Brussels sprouts, curly kale, sweetcorn, carrots, potatoes and many, many more local vegetables on offer in the supermarket and from the market. Knowing that they come from a local farm is fantastic.

Adapting to a ‘Butter’ Dairy Free Mini Roast

When we have made flavourful meat dishes before, it has sometimes been difficult to make them dairy free. For dishes that contain butter, we simply substitute the butter for Stork block (not the tub version). We have noticed recently that supermarkets have their own brand of blocks that work just as well. We’d recommend always checking the ingredients on any product you buy to check that it is dairy free.
