If you’re a regular reader, you’ll know we love all sorts of cooking and baking in the Whiteman house.  Between myself and Martin, we’ve got baking and cooking sorted. We love meat and having meat delivered to our door was something we’ve often entertained, but hadn’t had the opportunity to do… until now.

I was recently asked to review the services of Westin Gourmet Meats and their ‘one time offer‘ deal, a selection of meats delivered straight to your door.  This package consist of:

• 1x 6oz Hereford Sirloin Steak
• 1x 6oz Aberdeen Angus Sirloin Steak
• 1x 1kg Packs of Steak Mince
• 2x 7-8oz Pork Loin Steaks
• 1x 1.5kg Whole Corn Fed Chicken
• 10x 4oz Gourmet Steak Burgers
• 24x Award Winning Cumberland Sausages

We received the parcel on the arranged date and when it arrived, it was beautifully packed in a insulated box with freezer bags ensuring the meat arrived at its freshest.


Keen to start cooking, we opted for the Aberdeen and Hereford steaks as our first meal. Both steaks were equal in size – 6oz – which was the perfect size for one person.

Out of the packaging, you could tell the steaks were of high quality and cut by an experienced butcher.

We grilled both steaks at the same time, but made sure to keep them separated so we could tell the difference for a taste test.

As it was a mid-week meal, we didn’t want it to be heavy so we just served the steaks with a generous helping of garden peas.

Both of the sirloin steaks were excellently grilled (thank you, Martin) and were very tender (thank you Westin Gourmet). We cut the steaks in half so that both of us could enjoy the regional differences of each sirloin steak. Martin preferred the meatier flavour of the Aberdeen, while I preferred the sweeter Hereford, but we both agreed that both steaks were amazing and probably one of the best steaks we’ve ever had.  I would highly recommend steaks from Westin Gourmet and can’t wait to get cooking the rest of the meat from the delivery.

*This is a review. I was sent the meat at no charge from Westin Gourmet, but all views and opinions are my own.   Please keep reading as I’ll be featuring more meats from Westin Gourmet in the coming weeks. Next up – Corn fed chicken!*
