From firm favourites to recently published recipes, here's some of the meatiest meals going
With more people attempting to make healthier lifestyle choices in 2018, we've undoubtedly seen a rise in veganism. However, the health benefits of red meat still stand and there's an endless collection of recipes out there to make the best use of locally sourced Scotch Beef, Lamb and Specially Selected Pork.
'Lean red meat is a rich and natural protein source providing you with all 8 essential amino acids required by your body as well as essential vitamins and minerals such as iron, zinc and B-Vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B6 and B12),' says Mairi Sutherland from Quality Meat Scotland's Health and Education Department. 'Red meat therefore can play a role in helping us feel great, grow, repair and maintain our bodies.'
We've pulled together a selection of cookbooks from TV chefs, grilling experts and food writers to help you continue a happy, healthy, meaty 2018.
