Buying meat online is probably the last thing that comes to mind when I say online shopping, but Butcherman.com.au is here to change that. Launched in 2006 following 40 years of combined experience supplying many of Sydney’s leading restaurants, pubs, clubs, cafés and hotels, Butcherman offers competitive wholesale prices to the public via their online store.
The site navigation is intuitive and the categories makes browsing a breeze. Their vision of being the ‘Amazon.com of meat’ is an exciting one, particularly if it means easy access to harder-to-find meats and cuts.
In addition to your standard beef, lamb, veal, pork, chicken and seafood sections, they also have a deli, sausages, game meats, spices, Brazilian meat and mixed meat boxes. The variety available and quality, is much greater than what you’d typically find at any supermarket.
My order ends up consisting of two sets of eye fillet with porcini mushroom and truffle butter ($19.75 each; $39.50 per kg), a butterflied whole chicken with shish tawook marinade ($13.10), Nonna’s pork & fennel sausages (2 packets of 500g, $13.90) and some wagyu sirloin (two 250g, $31.95). They currently deliver to most areas in Sydney, check here if you’re unsure. Ours was conveniently delivered the next day, promptly at the selected time slot.
The arrival of daylight saving was the perfect excuse for hosting our first backyard BBQ for the season!
We kept it simple, throwing most things as is, directly onto the charcoal BBQ.

These wagyu sirloins were cooked Heston style
We even pulled off cooking the eye fillets on the BBQ; the heat was lower by this stage which allowed the steak to cook through, maintaining a juicy inside and achieving a beautiful brown crust and grill marks on the outside. We used my Japanese tamago egg pan to catch the porcini mushroom and truffle butter. My bottle of truffle oil was later brought out for extra truffle goodness!

Good food and great company
