Lincoln Red beef goes to London’s Harrods

Special beef: Lincoln Red beef will be showcased in the Harrods store in London as part of the three-week Festival of British food.

The renowned Harrods store in London will be serving special Lincoln Red beef as part of their Festival of British food.

Farmer Michael Reed served the distinct beef at Harrods before, and says Lincoln Red is a special kind of produce.

“Lincoln Red is a particularly succulent and tasty meat, because it has small intermuscular veins, and they keep the beef moist while it’s cooked.”

The veins disappear by the time the meat is cooked. “It’s the most tasty beef you will ever eat,” Reed said.

Harrods sourced the best produce from around the UK for their festival, which runs for three weeks starting Saturday, September 18.

Reed’s Lincoln Red was selected after the beef was served in January at the Guild of Food Writers’ 25th anniversary luncheon.

Then in August Harrods approached Reed about their Festival of British Food and asked if he wanted to be part of it.
