Chefs and butchers agree: Colorado lamb is the best in the world. Ours comes from the Harper Farms, a third-generation family ranch known for producing some of the most coveted lamb in the country. That’s because the sheep are raised on pasture eating their favorite grasses and then finished on corn and other vegetarian grains, giving the lamb its trademark marbling, fork-tender texture and milder—and yet still rich—flavor that some say tastes a bit sweet.
All of our Colorado Lamb is humanely raised, USDA Choice Grade and certified Never Ever: no antibiotics, no hormones, no animal byproducts in their feed Read More

Some nights you might be craving a steak, but it can feel intimidating. Steak can be pricey and you don't want to ruin it, but you'll be surprised just how easy it can be to cook! Right now, our USDA Choice and Prime Natural steaks are 40% off, so you have even more reason to learn.
Prepping the steak:
-Let the steak sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before cooking. You also want to let your seasoning have time to soak in, so you can salt and pepper one side, let it sit for 15 minutes, flip it over, season the other side, and let sit for the final 30 minutes.
-Always use tongs to turn your steak.
-Before you sear your steak, remove excess moisture by patting with a paper towel.
-Sprinkle kosher salt over your steak and press it in. The salt will bring out the natural flavors on the meat.
-If you are pan searing the steak, add 1 tsp of butter and oil to your pan

It consists of a whole pig, drained, boned and seasoned inside with salt, pepper, herbs, and roasted in the oven and, as is known, is tasted in slices as a main dish or as filling for sandwiches, so it is are typical sale on the street where you can buy sandwiches with roast pork while strolling through the streets.
For the most refined taste, the pork can be flavored with a good tasted rosemary which intensifies the flavor and taste, as in southern Tuscany, in the Castelli Romani in the south and other areas of central Italy, and sometimes, even if the consumption should take place immediately after purchase, you can pass it in a pan with a little oil, a few tomatoes, a clove of garlic and all its dressing and for a further refined taste, the pork can also be consumed along with the delicious Arabic bread.

Our master butcher is ready to make your holidays merrier!
All it takes is one conversation with artisan butcher Brian Juarez (Newport Beach store) to know: he is passionate about his work. He’s been butcher-ing for almost a decade and though he enjoys getting to use his considerable knife skills, he says what he loves most is helping customers. “When I help someone at the counter, I feel really good knowing that I got to play a small part of the meal she cooks for her family.” And the Bristol Farms meat quality? “It’s the best, and it’s sustainable. Our meat has tons of flavor, but we never use antibiotics or hormones. I’m proud to stand behind it.”
Brian's favorite holiday meal: "Easy, my grandmom's famous tamales." Read More
