A little history about us first.
Michael is a meat guy. He hunts and dresses his own deer. We buy meat and cut/grind/blend our own. We have tried beef from Mennonites, at least 4 butchers. We can't buy frozen burgers because they all taste freezer burnt (flash freezing?)
My mother always shopped at Benkners (50 years ago) and I still buy a few favourite things, now at Brady's.
So 2 weeks ago we came in and bought some wagu burgers (they were good) and 4 lbs of your own ground burger.
Today we made burgers, and OMG!
Angels sang, unicorns danced and tastebuds weeped with happiness. We finally found the best ground beef we've ever had.
(Just the smell alone, when first opening the bag, we knew they were going to be good) but wow..just..wow.
As long as it continues to be this amazing, we will be buying your ground beef in bulk.
And we will now try other cuts of beef from you as well.
To Rob and staff:
Thank for your being there for us during the painful time since March 17.
Not only do you continue to provide the highest-quality meats and other foods as you have done for me since 2004 when I moved here from Toronto, but you do so in an atmosphere of calm and good humour which has been hard to find of late. You are greatly appreciated.
Hi Rob!! Just wanted to send a note to let you know how much you are appreciated in the community. I always think of Brady's when I need a special cut of meat. Plus, you are the only place that I know of who knows how to cut the meat so thinly for my fondue. And now folks are telling me that you are the only place who makes suet for Christmas puddings. Yay! Keep up the terrific work! Many thanks, Rob!
There are only 4 steps to enjoy the Best Slow Roasted Beef Ever:
- Go to Brady's and buy a great Chuck Roast
- Get Rob's perfect recipe from one of the great staff members
- Buy the special Dijon mustard at Brady's
- Follow the recipe to the T
Be prepared for the best tasting, fall apart, melt in your mouth beef you have ever had. Due to the results of this Beef Roast I am now the designated Beef Chef at our house.
Special Thanks to Rob and the staff at Brady's!
Last week I got some tenderloin to make steak tartare. It's the second time I got this from Brady's. Tartare has been a family tradition on special occasions as long as I can remember. The last time we had it, I took the crown from my Mom as "Chef de Tartare"… no easy task, but I have to share the credit with you for the excellent tenderloin. I also get my bottom round from you for my annual Christmas saurbraten. I just wanted to let you know how great it is to have a quality supplier that you can rely on every time for the best product. Brady's never disappoints.
We ordered a Turducken from Brady's Meat & Deli for our family Christmas dinner. It was 18lbs and fed more than 25 people and we still had leftovers for sandwiches. For anyone who has ever wondered if they should try a Turducken let me say that it was the best dinner we have had in years. The meat was moist all the way through and getting a taste of Turkey, Duck and Chicken all on the same plate was amazing. All of our guests were in awe and complemented the chef all night long. Thank you to Brady's for making our holiday dinner memorable and enjoyable.
Hi Rob & Team,
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.
Ours was excellent in many ways, spent with family in my home province of Quebec. Though we travelled to my parents' house for that weekend, technically, Sheryl & I were the ones 'hosting' members of our family with a Thanksgiving Dinner on Sunday night. To that end, we brought with us the 20½ pound turkey we picked up at your store on Friday.
After the meal, and again the next day, I was more than generously complimented for how wonderful the meal had been. Many people made the same compliment more than once, so much they were impressed! Now, in all humility, I do know how to prepare a turkey, and especially how to meticulously craft a beautiful sauce to enhance the meat, so I accepted the compliments. But it also occurred to me that I would never be able to elicit those kinds of compliments without the first-rate poultry you provide (and which some farmer(s), somewhere, raise so well). A Swiss chef I knew a long time ago told me, when asked, his "#1 secret to great cuisine"; his answer (which he whispered) was ... quality ingredients!!
So, on Sunday and all day yesterday, I felt proud and happy, but also very thankful for the great butcher shop I have been going to for several years now. And I sincerely thank you for the great work and service you do for us and all of your customers. I can't imagine buying meat anywhere else.
Just spotted your pic in the Grand magazine. What a hunk! I mean the hunk of beef on your shoulder.
It has been 5 years since a natural health practitioner referred us to your butcher shop for hormone-free meats. There is definitely a difference in the taste and quality of your meat products.
Your shop and staff are truly a hidden gem in Waterloo. Besides the selective products you choose to carry, you and your staff make customers feel so welcome in your store. I always leave with a smile.
We really appreciate what you offer to this community. Thank you.
The custom burgers you prepared for my party were a huge success. Thank you for the great service and the tasty burgers.
I'm looking forward to your special Baseball Steaks.
Thank you Rob!
