a couple of guys discussed the need for a beef club. Matthew Karan agreed to do the initial events and at huge risk we set about with a “Breed of the month” plan.
Matthew delivered certified sirloin from the respective breeds which were aged at Parktown North Local Grill for a month and then served to a rapidy growing number of “beef junkies”.
The membership drive then began with each member issued a dog tag with a unique number and an offer to additional benefits at The Local Grill.
The Ultimate Beef Club now boasts a membership in excess of 200 members with a data base of over 700 additional monthly guests.
As the monthly lunch (held on the first Monday of the month) is limited to 80 people, every meeting is fully booked.
Farmers and producers are welcome to discuss and present their product to the beef club.
To date the UBC has enjoyed breeds such as;
Afrikaaner, Angus, Beefmaster, Bonsmara, Brangus, Drakensberger,
Nguni, Pinzgauer, Senepol, Simmentaler, Sussex, Wagyu
Other lunches have included:
Grass vs grain, Venison – Game meat, Nose to tail, Lamb from Emfulweni Feedlot, Pork from Lynca Meats, Rib tasting, Lamb on the spit, Hamburger tasting
Sponsors are welcome.
