Try prime quality beef, lamb, pork and pies at the 2 Fat Butchers

BY LIANDE BARNARD - OCTOBER 3, 2017

The finest free-range chickens, farm-reared Pork, Sable grass-fed lamb, extra-matured Botswana Beef, gourmet sausages, traditional Leicestershire pork pies, grass-fed veld beef drywors and biltong as well as possibly the finest dry-cured bacon in South Africa – the 2 Fat Butchers offers all that is worth a weekly visit, even from across town.

Situated along Main Road in Walmer, Port Elizabeth, the 2 Fat Butchers not only has the best variety of choice cuts and pies in the Bay, but the shop is run by passionate owners, who are well-informed about meat, ways of preparation and will help you go home with exactly what you need.

I learnt from Andrew Broughton, who owns the shop with his brother, Craig, that all their meats and pies are prepared using the finest fresh ingredients. None contain additives, preservatives or other animals – ensuring you only enjoy quality in your kitchen.

Besides coming up with their own unique recipes, the 2 Fat Butchers only source their meats from local farmers, who share their exacting standards for quality and freshness.

Unlike at the big supermarket chains, the 2 Fat Butchers can also ‘custom-prepare’ your meats to suit your palate or occasion. To some that could be an indulgence, but I found the 2 Fat Butchers’ prices very reasonable.

Keen to taste some of their offerings, my boss and I bought several pies and sausages for a ‘palate’ test at the office. While the Pork pie, Apple-and-Pork sausage and Biltong Sirloin, won hands down, our entire office staff also agreed that all the sausages and pies had been well-prepared and were bursting with unique flavours. Most will certainly be introducing the 2 Fat Butchers into their kitchens and at their braais.

The Biltong Sirloin is actually choice meat marinated in a biltong-basting, which is also unique to Port Elizabeth and the Eastern Cape. The 2 Fat Butchers offer three popular steak-cut options; Sirloin rump, Medallion rump and Brazil’s most popular meat, the Picanha rump.

For those in a rush, but wanting to enjoy great meats and cooking, 2 Fat Butchers also offer a variety of prepared gourmet meat dishes. The meals are freshly-cooked by their experienced chef.

PE-born, Andrew became a master butcher while Craig cut his teeth in the frozen foods and fish industry in the UK.
