I had a special request for pork on Tuesday. The whole family would be in for dinner, so we decided on a roast which we had missed at the weekend because of the hot weather. I went to Morley's and asked for a joint for 5 people, which was duly cut to size. It's only recently I have taken over all the cooking at home, so last time I was in there I asked for advice on how to cook it, and this time I knew to out the oven on low at 3:30 for a 7:30 dinner. It worked perfectly, tender as could be and there was enough for cold the next day. I had been a bit worried about my blood pressure and cholesterol so I also made sure the crackling was perfect, and as no one else wanted any levels were soon restored to their appropriate stratospheric levels.
I have also bought Morley's frozen burgers as a stand by for the freezer, as well as the rest of their range of meats.
It is possible to buy meat more cheaply, but I find supermarket cuts are unreliable. A real butcher who can offer advice and produce a reliably good product is well worth a visit. One of the ways to judge Morley's is by the queues that form there on a Friday and Saturday - customers will rarely queue for poor service.
