Organic Beef Aitch Bone Joint

A traditional cut perfect for slow cooking

You know us, we like to use every bit of the carcass and we also like to remember all those forgotten cuts that have fallen by the wayside. So let us introduce you to our organic beef aitch bone joint. This is a hindquarter cut found to the inside of the top of the beef animal's leg. It sits close to the topside and top rump and shares some characteristics with those joints. The distinguishing feature of the aitch bone is (not terribly surprisingly) an almost H-shaped bone running through the joint. You might think this would be awkward, and it could explain why the cut fell from favour, but when slow cooked to melting tenderness it doesn't matter. The bone pulls away and you're left with soft delicious meat that doesn't even need carving.

At Coombe Farm, shorthorn bulls now father all of our beef calves. The shorthorn is a native breed, originally used for both dairy and beef. It originated in the north of England and has been hugely influential in the development of lots of different cattle breeds. As a breed they're generally good tempered, they calf easily, produce stocky, sturdy offspring and well-marbled meat. As a native breed, shorthorns thrive on our pasturelands and they grow thick coats that make them tough and hardy.

Product FAQs

  • We deliver our organic produce Tuesday – Saturday. Delivery charges for weekday delivery are £3.95 and Saturday delivery £6.95. You can also select pre-12 delivery option which is at a higher rate of £6.95 for weekday delivery and £8.95 for Saturday. If you spend over £80 you will receive free weekday delivery. The cut off period to get your order the next day is 12pm any order placed after that time will be delivered after 2 days. For example if you order after 12pm on Tuesday you will receive your box on Thursday.

  • Our products are sent to our customers frozen because when we started the business we looked into convenience for our customers. We found that sending the produce frozen meant that they could order for instance a month’s worth of produce and could go into their freezer until they are ready to use it. It also meant that there was less risk to the meat whilst been delivered as fresh meat can be delicate and risky.

  • All of our meat is butchered in house. In December 2018 our in-house butcher was built which means that we have full control of what is cut and also means that we can accommodate more requests from our customers.

    You will find all the ingredients on the relevant product pages.

  • We have a dedicated page which explains all the different cuts and where they come from. Find out more here www.coombefarmorganic.co.uk

Cooking your organic beef aitch bone joint should be a slow and steady affair. It doesn't need much fuss to bring out the intensely rich flavour, but it's not one to be hurried. The bone imparts flavour and ensures succulence. Sear the joint in a sizzling pan then transfer it to a roasting tin with onion, garlic, lots of woods herbs and a generous seasoning of salt and pepper. Pour in enough beef stock (and maybe a good splosh or red wine or stout) to half cover the meat, and then cook at a very low temperature for at least three hours. You'll be rewarded with so-tender meat and ready made gravy. Serve with buttery cabbage and a tray of roasted root veg.
