Each recipe will also appear as a limited-edition weekly menu special at John’s brand-new summer AngloThai BBQ residency at Newcomer Wines in Dalston, where guests are invited to try a different Irish beef recipe each week from:

●      Grilled’crying tiger’ grass-fed Irish rib-eye with roasted chilli and tamarind dipping sauce

Running for six weeks with the aim to reach one million foodie consumers across the UK aged 21-55yrs old the campaign includes recipes and’how to’ video content featuring premium grass-fed Irish steak cuts: sirloin, rump, fillet and bone-in rib eye.
