The meat of a boxerbait is usually the meatiest part of the animal, but this little meaty bird is a special case.
A boxer breeder in Queensland, Australia, has developed a way to cook and eat its meat.
The technique, dubbed Boxer Meat, was devised by Paul Laidlaw and his wife, Michelle, in an effort to recreate a real-life Boxer.
“I thought it was a great way to get my family together,” said Laidlaws, who works as a cook in Brisbane.
“We’d always had our own chicken dinners and it was always a big deal.
We wanted to bring a little bit of that experience back into our home.”
Laidlaw’s wife, Liza, was inspired by a video she had seen on YouTube of a group of women cooking their own chicken dinner and the video’s message resonated with her.
“When I watched that video I thought, this is so exciting.
This is the perfect opportunity to try something a little different,” she said.”
To me, it’s a great opportunity to introduce a new family member to a whole new food group that’s a bit different from what we’re used to.”
The couple’s family, which includes five children, also enjoys cooking together and has been able to learn a lot from the new family.
“They love the way we cook, so they really appreciate it,” Laidaws said.
The family has also noticed a difference in their family’s eating habits.
“Our kids eat more, they’re not quite as heavy, they don’t have as much chicken as we did before, but the food is the same,” he said.
Boxer Meat is made by a technique called “shredding,” where the meat is sliced into smaller pieces, such as a steak or a ribeye.
“The reason I do it is because it’s really easy and I’m able to get the meat very quickly and really cleanly,” Lillah said.
A boxer is about 1.5 metres long and weighs about 100 kilograms, but boxers can grow to as big as 2 metres long.
They can live for up to 10 years and can be bred to be the size of a pig.
They’re known for their soft, juicy meat that has a high protein content and can last for years.
“If you eat a bunch of meat and you don’t give it a good stir it will just chew it off and it won’t get cooked very well,” Lili said.
