All hail the Tri-Tip! Straight-up, we're kind of obsessed with the tender and flavorful cut of beef that was made famous in Santa Maria, CA,

If you have, then you already know how amazing the addition of our hand-crafted, locally-made marinade is for the beef.

But don't take our word for it...try one yourself! Need a cooking tip? Our Meat Director, Rick Stidham suggests wrapping it in foil and placing on your gas grill over medium heat.

Bristol Farms' Pan-Seared Steakhouse Ribeyes
No need to visit the steakhouse! Our Ribeyes are a perfect ‘melt-in-your-mouth’ cut with incredible marbling, tenderness, and flavor. They're also quite excellent when prepared right on your stove!

Make it a happy morning with the heavenly flavor of good, old-fashioned bacon. It's small-batch made and contains absolutely no antibiotics or added nitrates. Pair it with your scrambled eggs, add it to your fancy grilled cheese, or carefully pour pancake batter directly over it on a fry pan for a bacon pancake that's sure to please the whole family.
Have you ever baked your bacon? It alleviates the mess of a greasy fry pan and allows the bacon to keep its form while getting extra crispy. Simply line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and place the bacon on top with 1 inch between each slice. Turn your oven on to 375 degrees and place the bacon inside. Allow to bake for 15 minutes or until it has reached your desired crispiness Read More
