Paigu is a cut on the bone that has a genorous amount of meat. At home, Aris & his wife likes to steam it with homemade black bean sauce (as you can see in the second photo)! It's a well-known Chinese dish – you may know or recognise it at Yumcha.
To ensure that our meat stays fresh, delicious and safe, you should always store our meat in the fridge at 5°C or below as soon as you've received it. If you collected it from our warehouse, we you can store it in cool bags on your drive home. This will prevent any growth of bacteria which can cause food poisoning.
If you would like to pro-long the shelf life of the meat, you can also store it in the freezer at -15°C or below. To defrost the meat, take it out of the freezer and let it defrost in the fridge, not on the kitchen bench.
Make sure raw meat is stored separately from cooked food to avoid cross-contamination.
