The lean Pork Shoulder we use in our Bratwurst Sausage is trimmed & prepared by our expert butchers to ensure there is no gristle going into the mix when making them. The results are a better textured sausage with no surprise lumps to takeaway from the delicious flavour. The pork shoulder has the best flavour because of the fibrous nature of the muscles, which makes the sausages stand out from a common cheap branded product.
The natural moisture of the meat helps with the blending as we don’t need to add as much water to help the mix.
Buying our Pork Bratwurst Sausage in 450-gram packs is an ideal size for home cooking. The size of the pack is just right for making small recipes so as not to waste any, & perfect when you wish to make larger meals by using multiple packs that usually portion out exactly in many recipes. Food waste is a big problem today, & we have tried to portion all our meats to minimise this, giving you much better value for money when shopping online with us.
By putting more meat into our Bratwurst Sausage, you have the benefit of getting more meat for your money but, it is quality meat that is not the cheap fatty cuts that are not of the same texture or flavour as Pork Shoulder.
Good quality meat doesn’t need to be expensive & unavailable for the family, this is why it’s good to shop at Sherwood.
When using pork sausage meat in recipes, you want the flavour of the meat to stand out. In our sausages you can taste the flavour of the lean pork shoulder unlike many types of Bratwurst that are so fat to maximise profit. When you serve our delicious Bratwurst Sausage, you want it to be enjoyed by all the family, especially the children who love a good Bratwurst Sausage or Hot Dog roll dipped in their favourite sauce!
Having a balanced diet is very important & quality pork is a great source of vitamins, minerals & protein. Using the lean pork shoulder is best because it has the richest source of all these. Healthy food doesn’t need to be bland, using the right quality ingredients makes tasty meals.
Shopping online for meat is not new but many people are unsure of what they will get, how it will arrive & the benefits. Buying our Bratwurst Sausage is as easy as picking up your phone. We have made sure that you get the products you see in the pictures, it will arrive next day for the UK & 48 hours for Europe, it will save you time as no trips to the supermarket with the kids, whilst helping towards a greener future.
All our meats are cut in temperature controlled, clean & safe environments to make the freshest cuts possible for home or restaurant deliveries. The Bratwurst Sausage is made & packed within minutes because it prevents losing its natural juices & limits its exposure to any natural bacteria found in the air. We then leave the sausage to set up overnight so that the seasoning can infuse the meat. The Pork Bratwurst Sausage is then shock frozen to -18°C preserving it perfectly, giving a much longer shelf life.
We have vacuum sealed our Bratwurst’s in easy to store clear recyclable pouches, the packaging protects the meat from any freezer burn, other food stuffs in your fridge, during transit when being delivered to our restaurant clients or by courier to your home.
Our meats are produced in temperature controlled, hygienic, safe environments that guarantee the best results for freshness & flavour. The speed at which we make the Bratwurst Sausage keeps air exposure to a minimum & gives a longer shelf life. The low temperatures prevent the sausage from losing any natural juices keeping them fresh from the moment they are packed.
Our choice of pork is something we have carefully considered, as we find this makes exactly what our customers need for specification, flavour & taste.
There are many breeds of pigs in the world, each with different characteristics, some large fatty ones, to small very lean types. Our choice of pig is the Pietrain Pig because it is a low cholesterol breed that has a fantastic meat to fat ratio that has excellent flavour with guaranteed results in the kitchen.
Having access to a large volume of good grade, perfect sized pork sides to choose from on a daily basis enables us to create the consistent “Restaurant Quality” pork cuts that people have come to expect from the Sherwood brand. We have daily delivery of pigs to the production facilities from long standing local countryside farms in Belgium & Northern France.
Our select breed of pigs gets the name Pietrain from the small village of “Pietrain” in the Wallonia region of Belgium where they mainly originated from.
