Dry-Aged Beef Tips with Caine

Beef is aged in the cabinet at a low temperature for a number of weeks creating a very tender and tasty product.

Beef is aged in the cabinet at a low temperature for a number of weeks creating a very tender and tasty product.

As part of our recent renovations and in a first for the Sunshine Coast, we had our own custom-built Himalayan Salt Dry-Aged Beef cabinet installed.

Beef is aged in the cabinet at a low temperature for a number of weeks creating a very tender and tasty product.

When the dry-aged beef comes out of the cabinet we cut off the outside of the beef and slice into steaks or as per customer orders.

Dry-aged beef should be cooked the same way you would any other steak.

A few tips:

  • Always make sure your pan (cooking surface) is hot (near smoking).
  • Leave your meat out before you cook it so it reaches room temperature.
  • Always leave your meat to rest after cooking.

Spoil your Dad this Fathers Day with a lovely local dry-aged beef steak!

Organic Food Section Doubles

Have you noticed the organic section floor space has doubled?

Organic grocery items previously shelved throughout the store have now returned to the Organic / Health Food section.

This makes it easier for you to find all your organic items in one place. The only exception are the teas, they will be staying where they are.

Bee Man local Honey is now available in bulk sizes up to 3kgs!!

If you are wondering where Crystal Waters Honey has gone don’t panic, it will be back in stock after winter has passed, when more flowers are out.

More great news, we’ve recently taken on a new organic supplier and brought in organic flours and packet ready meals ie risottos etc.

Spring is here and if you are preparing for the beach season with shakes and smoothies check out our expanded range of powders in the Health Food Section.

I’m always on the lookout for the latest must-have organic product.

If you want a particular product ordered don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.

Introducing Jo James

Jo James our Seafood Specialist has been with Maleny Supa IGA for nine months.

Previously managing a seafood section for another retailer in Yandina, the expanded seafood section at Maleny IGA and the freedom to create her own display and mixes enticed Jo to make the move here.

Raised in Yamba, a little fishing village in NSW, Jo has fished and surfed all her life.  You’ll find her at Maleny IGA behind the seafood counter from 7am to 3pm five days a week.

Jo has introduced a number of new seafood mixes.  These are a quick dinner solution.  Simply toss in the wok with a bit of olive oil on high for five minutes to cook.

Seafood mixes include NZ Mussels with Sweet Chilli, Onion and Capsicum, Prawn and Scallop mix &  Marina mix.

Other new lines include: Lemon & Dill Prawn Skewers and Hervey Bay Scallops.

If you are looking for something not in our display cabinet just ask as we may have extra supplies in the cold room.

Fresh seafood arrives every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  All of our fish is supplied fresh by a local company in Kawana.  Whole fish is a speciality, look for a new display section out the front of the Butchery Servery section

If you are late shopper and would like to pre-order your seafood, give Jo a ring and she can put it aside for you.

New local product popcorn!

Rory Cullinan, his wife and young family moved up to live on the Sunshine Coast from Brisbane in 2008.

In 2013 they started M.A.D (Make A Difference) Popcorn in Woombye and began selling it at Eumundi Markets as a social business enterprise.

Their aim was to create a viable small business and raise funds for a local charity. In April this year they introduced a new line to retail with the creation of the scrumptious Popcorn Lovers brand.

The majority of the ingredients are from Queensland. All the corn is grown in Kingaroy & the sugar is from Bundaberg, while the bases used are made overseas.  Popcorn Lovers popcorn is gluten free.  No additives or preservative options are also available.

Popcorn Lovers popcorn has a shelf life of four months thanks to a prevention barrier sheen on the packaging preventing oxygen transpiration and sugar’s natural preservative qualities. Popcorn Lovers Popcorn comes in eight delicious flavours.

Caramel, a blend of dark sugars and the most popular.  Salted Caramel, introduced recently is the current flavour trend.  Cappuccino, a caramel base with coffee running through it. Traditional Butterscotch.  Coconut, coconut bound into a butterscotch base. Choc Caramel, chocolate glaze and caramel. Macadamia, crushed local macadamia’s on a butterscotch base.  Rocky Road, a mix of chocolate, butterscotch, coconut and strawberry.

Meet the Maker & Taste Eumundi Guesthouse and B & B Pates and Terrines

Are you partial to a bit of Pate and crackers?  Did you grow up when Terrines were available in all the local deli's?  Sue and Dave from Eumundi Guesthouse and B & B were so disappointed with the taste of commercial pates on the market they started making their own.

From making a few batches to enjoy with friends and family it's now grown into a burgeoning small gourmet business.  Maleny IGA is the first supermarket to stock their range and it's all thanks to our fantastic customers who spotted their stand at the Eumundi Markets and kept asking and asking for it to be sold in our supermarket.

As Sue says, "I've come to learn there are pate people and non-pate people.  All I need to do is give the pate people a taste of my products and most of them become customers. They love the taste, the low food miles and the local ingredients."

All their Eumundi Guesthouse and B & B Pate's are gluten free and you have the choice of three flavours:

  • Salmon,
  • Cognac & Green Peppercorn,
  • Port & Black Peppercorn.

You can find their full range of pates  in the Maleny IGA Deli Cheese fridge along with some terrines.  Terrine's can also be made to order for special occasions - ask Janelle for more information.

Eumundi Guesthouse and B & B Terrine jars are lined with pancetta and slow cooked in a bai marie.  Flavours include:

  • Celebration - Turkey Mince, Juniper Berry, Cranberry, Pistachios, Cognac, Herbs
  • Chicken & Sage,
  • Chicken & Cranberry,
  • Chicken & Pistachio,

If you are a pate person and would like to taste Eumundi Guesthouse and B & B Pates & Terrines you are in luck as we've got two dates booked in for in-store taste testing.

Look for Sue in the Deli section inside Maleny IGA between 2 - 4 pm on Friday 11th September and Friday 2nd October.
