OUR STORY

Pukara & Our Story

Pukara Estate was founded by Bruce Eglington, who planted the first trees in 1999 and was joined   12 months later by Steve Goodchild. The first commercial harvest took place in 2003 and the Pukara Estate brand was launched. Pukara Estate’s Extra Virgin Olive Oils and Vinegars are amongst Australia’s best, winning over 60 awards nationally. The products are produced and packaged on site, guaranteeing the freshest product throughout each season.

Pukara’s entire focus is about exceeding expectations through the delivery of absolute freshness, innovative flavour and consistent quality.

Steve and Racquel Goodchild now manage Pukara Estate’s operations across the country with an ever increasing range of products and distribution. The freshness, flavour and quality of our products are testament to the creativity, passion and commitment of our entire team. Our extensive range of products offer something gourmet for everyone to identify with, enjoy and indulge!!

Myself & my husband Stuart back packed around the world 2008/2009 where we found a job on the olive grove with Bruce, Steve & Racquel. We were part of the production/Pukara Team. We found a good friendship and business relationship that when we got back to the UK/Ireland we decided to import Pukara Products. We go back once a year now to do this harvest of the olives and get caught up with our friends in oz. We now do event throughout Ireland, N.Ireland & Scotland and supplie high end deli’s within thoose areas. We are always looking to grow our business.

1kg Lamb ribs
100ml Pukara Estate Blackcurrant Balsamic Vinegar
½ cup brown sugar, firmly packed
2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp dried oregano
¼ cup Worcester sauce
2 tsp mustard powder

Mix all ingredients, except the ribs together in a bowl until combined. Using a fork pierce the meat all over. Add to marinade and massage together.

Cover and refrigerate for 4-6 hours or overnight. Remove marinated ribs from the bowl with a little extra marinade, covering exterior of the meat and wrap tightly in foil.  Barbecue on medium heat for 45-60 minutes. Unwrap the ribs and check if cooked through but still juicy. If so, remove from foil, turn the heat up and cook over flames for 5 minutes, just to charcoal.

Allow the ribs to rest for 10 minutes, slice them up and serve immediately.
