Top 10 Meat Accessories


The rubs, sauces and accessories required by every serious meat-eater...

Purifying Knife Holder System

This box cleans knives by blasting them with light waves to destroy any DNA and cell membranes. £99; selfridges.co.uk

Cast Iron Grill Press

This diner-style implement can be placed atop a burger to cook both sides at once. £22; crateandbarrel.com

Shun Premier Steak Knife

Why is it £100? Because it’s ‘drag-resistant’ and forged from the finest Japanese steel. £100; crateandbarrel.com

Preserved Bone Marrow

This changes everything. Good as an accompaniment or on toast. £8.75 (150g); eastlondonsteak.co.uk

Steak Button

Rather than slicing your steaks open in the pan, simply prod them with this thermometer to achieve a rare, medium or well-done cook. £12.50; surlatable.com

Viking Smoked Salt

After a hard day’s pillaging, the Vikings ate darn well – seasoning their meat with this stuff. £4.50; souschef.co.uk

Hickory liquid smoke

Add a barbecue kick to dishes on a rainy day – made from filtered smoke condensate from an open fire. £11; souschef.co.uk

Apple & Mint Jelly

Apple is good. Mint is good. But together... yeah, that’s really good. Try adding a dollop to gravy. £3; tastesdeli.co.uk


Break down the fibres in tougher cuts of meat – such as skirt steak – using a tenderising wheel. The more vicious it looks, the juicer the result…

£28.50; divertimenti.co.uk

Wenger Swibo Butcher Knife

A curved knife is essential for de-boning, butterflying chicken and dealing with offal. £26; alloutdoor.co.uk
