American Wagyu: A Bi-Rite Exclusive

WagyuCattle
It’s amazing when you get the opportunity to taste something that so completely exceeds your expectations. Last June, Clydene Bultman, owner of Thompson River Ranch, reached out to see if she could arrange to taste me through her American Wagyu program. What I tried was some of the most amazing beef I have ever tasted, I almost felt like it was a disservice calling it beef.  Each cut of Clydene’s Wagyu has an unparalleled level of tenderness that creates a truly sensational flavor experience. After that first meeting, I knew that I had to find a way to bring her American Wagyu beef into Bi-Rite.

shortribsSo what is Wagyu beef? It is the same breed of cattle that creates Japan’s famed Kobe beef, prized all over the world for its amazing marbling, tenderness, and flavor. Clydene has been raising her herd of “High Percentage, Long Fed American Wagyu” for the last ten years; by slowly allowing her animals to gain weight and aiming for a 75%-100% Wagyu genetics, her beef is far superior to most Wagyu available for retail. Thompson River Ranch is a heritage, working cattle ranch set on a 120-year-old homestead in Montana’s picturesque Thompson Valley, where the cattle graze on forest land, forage in the mountains, and are finished on barley. Bi-Rite has chosen to partner up with Thompson River Ranch for this exclusive offer to our guests of the most luxurious and sought-after beef around, from a rancher who is fully committed to raising cattle the responsible way you’ve come to know and expect when you purchase your meat from Bi-Rite.

WagyuPlateThis holiday season we will be accepting weekly pre-orders for a Thompson River Ranch American Wagyu Beef Box (orders must be received by 5pm Sunday for in-store pick-up the following Friday). This is an exciting opportunity to purchase over five pounds of fresh, Wagyu beef, cut-to-order and butchered locally, for an extremely reasonable price of $175. Each box contains a generous, 16-ounce portion of ribeye, a 16-ounce New York strip steak, two, 8-ounce sirloin steaks, 1.5 pounds ground beef and a zabuton (Japanese-style boneless short rib). This box is a fantastic gift for any beef lover, and is also the perfect way to introduce yourself to the wonderful world of American Wagyu. Stop by the meat counter at either Market and place your order today, or email chili@biritemarket.com for more information!

Enjoy the finest Turkeys from our favorite farm: BN Ranch

turkey_niman_marinsuns-300x257BN Ranch HeritageTurkeys – $8.00 / lb
Long a favorite of our guests, these exceptional turkeys are a trademark of Thanksgiving at Bi-Rite. Each turkey is raised in Bolinas and Turlock, CA by the BN Ranch Team on the ranch of Bill and Nicolette Niman. Raised in a humane and environmentally-responsible manner, these birds are direct descendants of Standard Bronze, Narragansett, and Spanish Black breeds. The flock roams freely on grassy pastures most of the year, grazing and foraging to supplement their GMO-free, vegetarian diet. Intensely flavorful on their own, they require hardly any flavorings or additions to taste incredibly delicious.

BN Ranch Broad-Breasted Turkeys – $5.00 / lb
Raised in the same responsible manner as BN Ranch Heritage Turkeys, these traditional turkeys provide a larger ratio of white meat and are a delicious, free-range alternative to factory farm-raised turkeys.

Visit our Instacart Holiday Market for our complete Turkey selection, available size ranges, and serving information.

Paellapalooza at the Markets

As the summer grilling season starts to wind down, now is a great opportunity to revisit some of our forgotten seafood favorites.  Paella has always been one of my favorite dishes, as it can really highlight a diverse array of the ocean’s goodies.  I like to think of shrimp, mussels, clams and squid as my flight attendants on my culinary flight to Spain’s Mediterranean coast.Paella

The key to really tasty seafood paella is choosing the best quality seafood that you can find.  At Bi-Rite, not only are our offerings incredibly fresh, they are also impeccably sourced.  For ten years we have partnered with FishWise, a sustainable seafood consultancy that promotes the health and recovery of ocean ecosystems through environmentally responsible practices, which has led us to being much more informed about the sourcing of our offerings.  As much as we like to consider ourselves experts in all aspects of meat and seafood, we realize that we are constantly learning and developing a greater understanding of the ever-evolving world of responsible sourcing and sustainability. Over the last ten years FishWise, in addition to frequent communication with our seafood partners, has been an integral part in advancing our understanding of the seafood industry.  They have also helped us better develop ways to convey the challenges of thoughtfully purchasing seafood to our guests.

This week (September 13 through 20) also happens to be Sustainable Seafood Week- San Francisco, a national program that advances the sustainability conversation in American cities with a rich seafood history.  So visit us at the Markets (or shop our Paella recipe from our online store at Instacart.com) and celebrate some delicious seafood that you can feel good about.  Now is the perfect time for a Paellapalooza!

Celebrate Hogust at the Markets

LargeBlack-tag-04Over the last few months we have started to introduce more local pork producers committed to raising various heritage breeds.  I really feel that pork is one of the more complex proteins, and its flavor profile is greatly influenced by breed, feed, and terroir.  It is this thought that drove the idea of creating “Hogust,” our celebration of rare and heritage pork breeds throughout the month of August.

Since 2005, Bi-Rite and Heritage Foods USA have partnered to support small family farms that are committed to raising unique breeds of hogs with varied flavors and tastes.  Through the entire month of August we will be highlighting center-cut pork chops from breeds like the Tamworth, Old Spot, Duroc, Large Black, and my favorite, the Red Wattle.

Hogust_Back-PROOF-02 (2)

So raise a glass to “Hogust,” and take advantage of this opportunity to taste experience pork from the breed perspective.  Be sure to visit our butchers throughout the month to try our rotating selection of heritage pork. To quote our friends at Heritage Foods, in order to preserve this amazing breed diversity, “You have to eat ‘em to save ‘em!”  See our field guide for flavor profiles to find your favorite breed, and what better way to taste the difference than in our Pan-Fried Pork Chops with Figs recipe, adapted from Eat Good Food? Shop the recipe in both Markets or from our online store at Instacart.com. Enjoy!
