WHY WE LOVE NIMAN RANCH

It’s no secret that we love Niman Ranch. We are dedicated to selling their beef, pork and lamb because it’s the best. But why is it the best? Here are two perspectives, one from long-time food writer Bill St. John (Chicago Tribune, Denver Post) and one from Marczyk Fine Foods’s Culinary Director, Chef Jamey Fader. These pieces are well worth your time.
FROM BILL
Niman Ranch pork is different; it truly is something else. I’ve cooked with it now several times, from shoulder to belly to loin. It’s not only that Niman Ranch pork has true pork flavor, it’s that that flavor is so richly deep that it shocks.
FROM CHEF JAMEY
This past weekend I was fortunate to be presented with an opportunity to visit a hog farm in Iowa that uses the Niman Ranch methods. I also got to attend the yearly Hog Farmer Awards dinner and ceremony. I was eager to see the practices being put into play and, quite honestly, to see if the hype was real or if it’s all just a great story.

What do you get when you take a slice from a boneless rib roast? A boneless ribeye steak, potentially the greatest steak to ever walk the earth. You can get Niman Ranch rib roasts AND ribeyes on special this week — save $4/lb.

Can you imagine the first person to ever see a halibut? “Wait, what?…both eyes are on the same side of its head. That’s the weirdest thing I’ve ever…but hang on…I bet that thing’s delicious.” And so it was. So while we still have some grilling weather, get yourself some halibut.

SEPTEMBER’S FUNKY ROTATOR: FISH ENCHILADAS

fish-tacos-funky-rotator.jpg
 

What is a funky rotator anyway? It’s a dish we make for a shortish time, and then it disappears into some otherworldly realm of really good food. And just what is in these fish enchiladas?

Ingredients: white fish (albacore, sole, tilapia), olive oil, orange juice, orange zest, lime juice, cilantro, onion, garlic, oregano, thyme, cumin, salt, tomatillo, jalapeño, heavy cream, corn tortillas. To heat: Preheat oven to 350F. Remove plastic lid. Cover tin with foil and bake for 30-40 minutes, or until heated through.

Notice the lack of artificial anything and chemical whatnots. Our supremely talented kitchen staff makes these by hand, and they’re in the refrigerated cases by our delis through September (the enchiladas are in the cases, not our supremely talented staff).

$15.99 for 4
nice-sized enchiladas
