As is often the case, I see we are two peoples separated by a common language Anne.Tongue

I have no idea but will assume that a bolar must be similar to what we would call a blade roast up in these parts, and would that "silverside" just be a hunk of brisket?

Anyway....I think I'd have it done about the same way you did except for the schnitzel...I'd go with stew meat and slice my own schnitzel when the time came.
Go ahead...play with your food!

Might help.
Silverside = Brisket!   (slaps Hoser)

Brisket is the wobbly bit between the font legs; extending up. It's full of fat and is commonly corned into a product known as povi masima here. (Polynesian heart-attack-on-a-plate)

Silverside is (direct paste from wiki)...  a cut of beef from the hindquarter of cattle.

I love to talk meat.

Anne,

In a Cosmopolitan city; my fanstastic Butcher, Javier, handles all of this ... The Vet, handles the carving and on special occasions if I want to prepare a specialty dish, he is quite an adept carver.

Very interesting post, not only for the content, but the Zealander colloquisims and names.

Anne, this would surely be fanstastic if you posted in the Library, for future reference.

************************************************************************

Perhaps if you wish to, along with the British, Canadian and American
terms used.

Could be an interesting team Project.


As you know, SPAIN´s natural pasture grazing lands are only in the north and northwest of the península.



The south is completely semi desert arid, and is best suited for Goats and Sheep. We are both not big meat consumers, however,we do enjoy our Roasts; especially suckling piglet, leg of lamb, roast veal stuffed with pinenuts, and dried fruits or olives, leek and shallot or fresh spinach... and a good prime rib and a roast beef on holidays.

STEAKS VARIETY CUTS: our treats to ourselves, and favorite is filet mignon ( solomillo de buey ). The difference between the French slicing and the Spanish is:

The French is roundish on 3 sides, and straight cut on 1 side. The Spanish is totally spherical / circular ...

Same cut of Beef, just sliced differently.

Thank you for posting.

Ahron,

Thank you so much for your Chart on South African Beef Cuts.

I have a Spanish one; and I shall scan the photo on Sunday, and post it with the English translations ...

I like learning ...

Margaux, Kindest regards.

Always interesting to see different ways people have their meat cut, and how the standard names and cuts vary in different areas.

These days I've taken to buying primals and breaking them down myself. Find it to be much more economical and I always get it the way I want it, and can tailor it to the season and what mood I've been in.
K.I.S.S.

The variations are fascinating. I hope that this discussion helps with the appreciation of how the same foods can come to appear very different in the words of another people, yet are identical in reality.

Lupinis; Primals would be an excellent way to buy. If I were unable to raise my own, that's one way I would be looking at.
My sister (who is an urban type) belongs to a co-op. The group buy a calf and pay for its rearing and grazing and get their meat that way, it still works out far cheaper than buying supermarket packs. Another way is to get a group and buy a complete carcass from the abbatoir. (If you are permitted to do that over there).

The actual butchering is a skill, but it isn't rocket science. If you have a good knife and plenty of time it's not that difficult, AND you get all the bits to make biltong and sausages, stock and dripping etc.

Anne,

I too am fascinated, though like your sister I am 100% Urban Urban !

Tas had posted these charts for our FOTW members for excellent reference however, they are North American.

I have a Spanish one, which is quite interesting from my Bovine Vet, from the RIBERA DEL DUERO DESIGNATION OR ORIGIN ...

It shall be interesting to compare the N.Z., South African Chart from Ahron; North American and the I Iberian cuts and make for a fanstastic reference for all English and Spanish speakers.

I also have the Lamb / Sheep and the Pork Charts.

Thank you Anne,
and Ahron and of course, Ron.

Kind regards.
Margaux.

Personal preference ONLY, but I like mine to be all boneless - very well-trimmed - either in whole, meal-sized roasts or in 2-pound packages; brisket whole (packer cut), burger as lean as possible - and don't forget the oxtail!

And don't pay to have it corned - it's too easy to do it yourself!

I'm going in on only half a pig with another guy at work, so I don't have full flexibility to get what I want.  But I'll see how the pigs are.  Another guy at work is raising them and he said he plans to finish the next batch on walnuts and acorns, as he'll have alot of them on his farm for this batch of hogs.  All natural fresh milled feed with no animal by products and no doughnuts, bread, etc. 

  Below is our little guy...although he has a few more pounds on him right now.  It's way too late to name him, so we'll just call him Dinner Thumbs Up


Enjoy The Food!

Nice porker, Dan.

You know it's never a good idea to name an animal you intend eating---especially with young kids involved. But "Dinner" certainly works if you have to.

Total agreement, never name your food.
Although we did have some punning fun with the beef steer we named 'Monkey'.
Monkey meat is yummy

   I gotta a winter pig coming sometime in February.  This batch will be full Berkshire hogs...it'll be a half hog order.  We have the same butchering instruction sheet that most people have, like Effigy's list above.  I'm going to try and get the pieces processed as little as possible.  Skin on/bone-in.  I'll probably get the shoulders and ham cut in half, but that's about it.  Liver, cheeks, etc will be coming with me as well.  I'm also going to see if they could just wrap the scraps, I would rather grind my own...and make my own sausage.  We'll see how much flexibility I have.  I've got a whole hog ordered for fall, I think it'll be a Berkshire/Tamworth mix  (which is a nice piece of pork!)

    good day all!
Enjoy The Food!
