I hadn’t actually heard of Ruby’s List before I was asked to try some their free range meat, but I am definitely a convert to their gorgeous good quality meat. Ruby's List 2 400 x 230


I was very excited to receive a large pack of organic meat including the following:

  • 500gm Mahy Farms Beef Mince
  • 500gm Mahy Farms Free Range Chicken Breasts
  • 600gm Hawkes Bay Natural Lamb Fillets
  • 2kg Freedom Farms Pork ribs


“More Meat”

However, other people obviously had heard about Ruby’s List. When I googled “pork spare ribs Freedom Farms” looking for a guide as to how long to cook my 2 kgs of spare ribs for, the Ruby’s List recipe for Chinese New Year Ribs featured at number one. I now know you should cook 1 kg of ribs for about 45 minutes.

I had my own marinade going on, so I didn’t follow their recipe for their own special marinade recipe. I did however appreciate the guide for cooking times. Ka pai. The meat-eaters in the house devoured these.

In fact all of the meals I made with my lovely Ruby’s List package were devoured. We had spare ribs one night, lamb with couscous and green beans another, a bolognaise sauce with pasta another night and for the  last night we had grilled lemony chicken breast. Two of my boys chanted “more meat” repeatedly at each of these meals. One of them doesn’t eat meat much at all, but that was okay because it meant


more for everyone else.
