Stv Appeal 2015

THANK YOU to all our guests, staff and suppliers that helped us do our bit for the STV Appeal and help children living in poverty in Scotland.

This is the third year we’ve backed the campaign and Friday night saw our team creating complimentary cocktails and mocktails over at STV HQ, quenching the thirsts of fundraisers galore for their live show. This was a celebration of the efforts from across Glasgow, from RBS, Lidl, Glasgow Warriors to school groups, choirs and dancers, with even The Rusk Company – Butchershop and Hutchesons donating a cheque to Sean Batty live on STV! Well done to Martin (Assist GM, Butchershop) for rallying the team!

Rusk Company STV

Between both of our venues, we raised a massive £1500 from customer donations and sales of our AWESOME steaks. Our owners, James and Louise Rusk have generously matched this donation taking the total to £3000 which goes straight to helping children in Scotland. Thanks to everyone who donated and to our supplier Pernod Ricard for the appreciated support. Peach Appeal Perfect was indeed perfect!

AMAZING RESULTS..

Lorraine Kelly revealed the final total raised on Friday night - a total sum of £2,913,083 donated by STV viewers. Amazing results for an outstanding charity! Until next year!

ET 23 09 15 Superheor Steak Website

Speaking about the Steak Superhero Squad owner James Rusk of The Butchershop Bar & Grill and Grade A Listed dining venue Hutchesons Bar & Brasserie, says:

“Our staff are our superheroes every day and we wanted to celebrate and have a bit of fun during the September weekend for the masses of people attending Comic Con. Our Tomahawk steak looks as if it’s straight out a comic book so it’s a great fit!

James who has just been announced as Visit Scotland’s Hospitality Hero for Glasgow continues:

“We hope that our guests will join in the cosplay comic spirit and help us fundraise for a great cause at the same time.”

MCM Comic Con is the UK’s largest and most popular Comic Con pop culture event and Memorabilia Collectors show, bringing together the newest game releases, merchandise buying and an opportunity to meet leading actors, directors and animators of favourite shows and comics.

This the third annual Comic Con and this years special guests include Robert Llewellyn who plays Kryten in Red Dwarf, (which starts filming two new series in November), Robert Picardo of Star Trek: Voyager, Karl Yune who played villian Maseo Yamashiro in Arrow, Maile Flanagan, who voices the title role in animated series Naruto, Femi Taylor, who was Jabba The Hutt’s slave dancer in Return of the Jedi and the director and animator of animated series The Rolling Girls, Kotomi Deai and Hiroshi Shimizu.

The Tomahawk steak ranges in size from 1.2g to 2kg and is part of their cuts on the bone colossal steak range, this cut is hung on the bone by their fourth-generation master butcher who hangs the grass-fed Scottish beef for 45 days, allowing each cut the correct amount of time to reach the optimum buttery melt-in-your-mouth flavour level.

What makes these cuts extraordinary is the specialised dry-aging process of hanging cuts on the bone; this process allows for an enhanced ageing period as the bone retains more moisture, delivering that unadulterated taste perfection.

Located at 1055 Sauchiehall Street reservations can be made in advance by calling their reservations team on 0141 339 2999 or booking online.

Cuts On The Bone

facebookcompthankyou

On our quest to source and serve the best steak in the world, we’ve launched a new premium range of colossal sharing Scotch steaks called Cuts On The Bone for our carnivore customers.

Perfect for sharing or for an adventurous one, four delicious cuts have been developed with each promising to deliver a steak explosion for every palate; from the exquisite jewel-in-the-crown buttery-textured fillet on the bone that’s rarely seen – even in some of the world’s best steakhouses, the ‘king of steaks’ porterhouse, the classic well-marbled sirloin on the bone and the succulent Flintstone-esque humungous bone in rib steak that is the Tomahawk.

Ranging in size from 700g to 2kg, these awe-inspiring cuts are hung on the bone in their own ‘Butchershop’ dry-aging room in an exclusive partnership with Cairnhill Farm in Girvan, where our fourth-generation master butcher hangs the grass-fed Scottish beef for 45 days, allowing each cut the correct amount of time to reach the optimum buttery melt-in-your-mouth flavour level.

What makes these cuts extraordinary is the specialised dry-aging process of hanging cuts on the bone; this process allows for an enhanced ageing period as the bone retains more moisture, delivering that unadulterated taste perfection.

Speaking about the new Cuts On The Bone steaks, restaurateur owner of The Butchershop Bar & Grill and Grade A Listed dining venue Hutchesons Bar & Brasserie, James Rusk says:

“Scotland is renowned for having the best beef in the world, and we wanted to heighten that reputation and create something truly spectacular for our customers and visitors to Scotland to experience.  As a company our ethos is to deliver the exceptional the same way every day and by working closely with our butcher we have created a serious range of big cuts with an even bigger unbelievable flavour that we’re proud to showcase and call our own.

“Our Tomahawk has already been a massive hit after an extended trial with customers, but it’s our fillet on the bone that’s really getting our kitchen team and staff in a meat frenzy.”

Butchershop head chef, John Molloy said:

“As a chef you want to work with the best produce in the world and this is as good as it gets. These cuts are phenomenal; the flavour from the fillet on the bone is like nothing you’ve ever tasted. Scotch fillet steak would normally be aged from 21 up to 28 days whereas with a fillet on the bone cut, the bone allows the meat to be aged for 45 days resulting in an unsurpassed enhanced flavour.

“We cook each cut simply allowing the superior quality and provenance of the meat to shine through. From our staple classic cuts to our new exciting cuts on the bone addition, there’s something for everyone.”

Cuts can be dry-aged for shorter periods of time like our classic and signature cuts which range from 21 – 35 days however after years of research with our butcher we’ve found that the optimum dry-aging time for the perfect flavour for the cuts on the bone steaks is 45 days. This length of time ensures that they keep the integrity of the great Scotch beef flavour but at the same time allow for optimum tenderness.

Cuts on the bone are available every day from The Butchershop Bar & Grill at 1055 Sauchiehall Street on a first come, first served basis or by reserving in advance by calling our reservations team on 0141 339 2999 or booking online.
