Ready, Set, GRILL! Quick and Easy 4th of July Feasting

hotdog 3

Get ready for the perfect Fourth of July! Whether you’re hosting a cookout, heading to a casual picnic, or hitting the road for a long weekend getaway, we’ve got everything you need for the week’s events. From meat that’s ready to hit the grill to grab-and-go classic picnic fare, we’ll take the stress out of creating unforgettable Independence Day meals. So, gather your friends and family and enjoy the bounty!

Ready-to-Grill Marinaded Meats

flanksteakmarinade Fire up the flames and cook up some of our house-marinaded pre-packed meats. These easy options all take 20 minutes or less to grill to perfection, with no preparation required. Try the chili-marinaded grass-fed flank steaks from Estancia. Just put them on your medium-high heat grill for 6 minutes on each side, and you’re done. Or go with Mojo Pork Chops, beautiful thick cuts in a tangy citrus marinade with cumin and garlic. MojoPorkFor a poultry option, our organic free-range chicken from Mary’s Chickens in Sanger, CA is marinaded and spatchcocked by our butchers (butterflied with center bones removed), so they will lay flat on your grill for even, juicy cooking.

 

The Ultimate Bacon-Wrapped Hot Dog

HotDogCloseupAlso ready for the coals are our Bacon-Wrapped Hot Dogs, created by hand in our deli with BN Ranch hot dogs and Heritage Farms slab bacon. More of a DIY type? No problem! Just pick up a pack of San Francisco-made 4505 Meats or Let’s Be Frank hot dogs, Vermont Smoke & Cure Bacon, and build your own masterpiece. We love to garnish our dogs with West Ferments Sauerkraut from Point Reyes Station, CA; they use all organic and locally-sourced ingredients and practice ancient wild fermentation methods to lovingly create their products. Also decorating our dogs is a staff favorite, Sir Kensington Ketchup, made with vine-ripened pear tomatoes and flavored with tangy apple cider, coriander, lime juice, allspice, and onions. Finish it all off with Acme Bread Company buns made from sweet dough with a touch of olive oil. Perfection!

Seasonal Grilling Vegetables

CornIdeal sides for your BBQ meats are grilled organic California-grown corn, asparagus, and eggplant. Our corn from Full Belly Farm in Capay Valley, CA is sweet and crunchy–perfect to grill and eat off the cob, or to mix in a salad. It looks beautiful served next to deep-purple Globe Eggplants from Mariquita Farm in Watsonville, CA.

Instant Picnic

top view berries cheeseMeeting friends in a park or on a peak to watch fireworks? Take along our grab-and-go basket of yummy red, white, and blue American cheese. Featured in this trio are Cowgirl Creamery Wagon Wheel, great on its own and as a melting cheese for cheeseburgers and pizzas,  Andante Dairy Fresh Chevre, a creamy and delicate hand-crafted cheese that pairs beautifully with Summer berries, and Point Reyes Bay Blue–salty, robust, and great with honey. Take along a baguette and some artisan-made Creminelli salami to share. This basket also makes a great gift for your cookout or party host!

Also check out our selection of house-made side salads, like our Classic American Potato Salad with organic potatoes, or our crunchy Cabbage Slaw, with red and green cabbage, carrots, shallots, and mustard. And our light and refreshing new Summer Corn and Cucumber Salad with sweet tomatoes, roasted corn, basil, and red wine vinaigrette is a sure crowd-pleaser.

Don’t Forget the Wine!

We’ve selected two wines from Dashe Cellars in Healdsburg, CA that are the perfect accompaniment to your holiday meals. Pick up the 2012 Dry Creek Valley Vin Gris (dry Rosé), an intensely fruity, refreshing wine that pairs beautifully with grilled fare. And the 2011 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel’s vibrant intensity transitions from cheese to meat to salads with ease.

We look forward to helping you develop the perfect menu, no matter where you’re celebrating. Happy Fourth of July!

Everything You Need For Memorial Day

Here at Bi-Rite, we’re ready to help with your Memorial Day weekend grilling and grubbing! Just a heads-up, we are open all weekend from 9am-9pm, including Monday, May 27th.

On the Grill

We have gorgeous, fresh (just caught yesterday!) wild local King Salmon from Half Moon Bay–grab these fillets while you can. Chili recommends preparing this exquisite fish with tangy and sweet glaze for your broiler or grill.

ChilisMisoGlazedSalmon

Just in time for grilling season, we’re offering beef from Five Dot Ranch and SunFed Ranch in ribeye, porterhouse, New York strip, and rib chop cuts. Just ask our butchers which cut is best for your get-together. These meats are great with SFQ San Francisco-style Barbecue Sauce. And don’t forget to pick up Acme burger and hot dog buns, and all your condiments!

Salmon2      NewSteaks

On the Side

For sides, try some organic CA-grown bi-color corn – just arrived today! These ears are sweet and crunchy and the first of season. We also have peaches – perfect for grilling. Our produce team recommends yellow peaches; they’re firm and not overly-sweet. Yellow peaches stand up well to cooking and grilling, which brings out their natural sugars. We have two varieties from Balakian Farm: Super Rich and Spring Lady. Pair them with some tangy, creamy Point Reyes mozzarella cheese, hand-pulled by our friends at Farmstead Cheese Company. Short on time? In our cold case, you’ll also find our house-made Cabbage Slaw, Classic American Potato Salad, and a wide selection of ready-to-serve salads and fixings.

To Drink

A perfect libation to enjoy this holiday weekend is our May Cocktail of the Month – the Copa di Sangue. This summer-y creation comes to us from bartender, Jackie Patterson. Jackie has been on the SF bar scene for some time, having crafted cocktails at Orson, Heaven’s Dog, and Smugglers Cove. She’s won numerous awards for her inspired drinks and is now the National Ambassador for Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur. Her Copa di Sangue is a variation on a Pimm’s Cup with fresh strawberries and Meyer lemon. Come see us at either Market to grab everything you’ll need to mix up Jackie’s refreshing cocktail for Memorial Day Weekend!

Solerno

Something Sweet

For a delicious dessert on a beautiful day, nothing beats strawberry shortcake. Fresh from the Creamery, our buttery shortcakes are just the ticket. Pair them with farm-direct strawberries and a scoop of seasonal strawberry balsamic ice cream for an unforgettable treat. Also new this weekend? Cheesecake with rhubarb swirl – dense, creamy and decadent.

You’ll find everything you need at our 18th St. Market and our Divisadero Market – have a yummy holiday weekend!

Winter Menu 2013

We’re excited to present the most staff-inspired menu we’ve ever had! When it came time to come up with these recipes, every chef in our kitchen took their turn getting creative with the amazing winter greens, citrus, and root vegetables we’re getting from local farms. Wyatt took his inspiration from the classic South American staples, creating our Quinoa and Potato Salad with Pickled Bi-Rite Farm Peperoncini Peppers. Ryan concocted the bright Farro and Squash Salad with Chicories and Winter Citrus. And Tonio unleashed his creativity on the Baby Carrots and Brussels Sprouts Salad with Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette! All of this is available in the Market now, for pickup at the deli or grab-and-go from the self service fridge:
