We love pickles with smoked meat, and we’ll try pickling almost anything. Right now our favorites are:
- Golden Beets
- Sweet Red Peppers
We also make straight-ahead dills and also sweet onions, pickled with brown sugar and apple cider vinegar. All of our pickles are water-processed, shelf-stable and will be good for years to come. Just refrigerate after opening!
Our frozen product, when kept properly frozen, is good for 6 months after the freeze-by date. The best way to thaw it is to move it to the refrigerator a day or two before use. The rule of thumb is: the slower it thaws, the better quality it will have.
1.Get a bowl or other container that’s large enough to hold all the meat you’re making. Run your tap until the water is hot, and fill the container. Submerge the meat, still in the package, in the hot water for 5 minutes or so. This brings the center up to a good serving temperature.
2.Meanwhile, if you are using a grill get it as hot as you can. For a cast-iron pan, preheat it for at least 3 or 4 of minutes. Remember, this product is fully cooked. You don’t have to worry about doneness. You’re just searing the outside.
3.Remove the product from its bag and use paper towels to dry it thoroughly. If it’s not dry, it won’t sear.
4.If you’re grilling, brush the product with oil. No need for salt or other seasoning! If you are using a pan, add a good amount of oil to the pan; enough that the bottom of the product will be covered.
5.Sear the product to your desired color on both sides; a minute per side is usually long enough. Remove and, if desired, blot off excess oil. There’s also no need to rest this meat. Eat it while it’s hot!!
All of our reverse-sear items are shipped flash-frozen in dry ice. We ship once a week on Wednesdays. We ship 2nd day so that packages will arrive no later than Friday afternoon. Because of restrictions for shipping with dry ice, orders shipped by air may have to be broken up into multiple packages. If your order includes refrigerated items, they will be shipped with the meat. If you order unrefrigerated items, they will be shipped separately by ground. Orders received after noon on Tuesday will ship the following week. When your order has been placed, you will receive an email notification from us which will include your shipping date. When your order ships, you will receive an email with a tracking number you can use to check its status. Please allow 24 hours for the tracking information to become available. Shipping rates are a tiered flat rate based on order total:
