the history behind our craft butchery

The steak as we know it, goes back to 15th century Italy, where they were cooked in open fires, and the first UK steakhouse, Simpson's Tavern, was opened in 1723 in London and is still on the go!

We were born in 1974 from a venture between Aberdeenshire Farmer, William Donald, and Master Butcher, John Stone of Russell Meats, we began serving the hospitality trade both in the UK and abroad, supplying the finest grass-fed beef to discerning hotels and restaurants, all over the world. Before long, we had a dream to deliver that same high-quality beef steak and other fine foods to homes just like yours all over Britain.

our expert team of butchers

We're passionate about the traditional skills of craft butchery and passing them on to the next generation. Even with all the advances in technology which make the job easier, it's essential to have an expert touch, what we call the 'Butcher's eye', something all our expert Butchers have. We work with all of our apprentices to make sure that this is passed on along with the skills and techniques needed to do the job.

There are a lot of skills a Butcher needs, but if we had to choose the most important, it would be hand-eye coordination, depth perception, and exceptional stamina.

Our Butchers' speciality cuts

Our Butchers' speciality steaks have enigmatic names like Skirt, Bavette and Flat Iron, the traditions of cutting these steaks go back a long way. These speciality steaks are cut from well worked or hidden muscles, meaning that they have their own unique textures and deep, beefy flavours.

why our steaks are a cut above the rest

At Donald Russell, our skilled Intake Team ensure only the very best grass-fed British beef passes our quality test and makes it into our butchery.  Our beef is matured for up to 50 days to enhance the flavour before our expert Butchers hand trim and prepare each steak to the highest specifications, using their 'Butchers' eye' to cut to perfection. And finally, we blast freeze all our steaks, so when you defrost it, it's as fresh as when it left the Butcher's knife.

After at least 35 full days of maturation, the meat has reached its peak of flavour and texture.

try eddie's peppercorn sauce


1 tsp butter
½ shallot, finely diced (optional)
2 tsp green peppercorns (in brine)
1 tbsp whisky
1 garlic clove, crushed to a paste with salt
1 tsp fine Dijon mustard
100ml whipping cream


Use the pan in which you cooked the steaks, remove any remaining fat with kitchen paper. Add the butter and shallots to the pan, allow it to froth and add the green peppercorns. Partially squash some of them into the butter using the back of a wooden spoon, and then stir in the whisky and garlic (there is no real need to flame the alcohol). Allow to combine for a few moments and then whisk in the mustard and cream until all is smooth. Simmer gently - continuing to whisk occasionally - until the copious amount of bubbles begin to reveal an increasingly brown tinge, and the sauce is a creamy consistency.
