SF Summer Grilling: “Chills-n-Grills”

Also known as “Cookin’ Hog in the Fog” or “Wearin’ Beanies while Cookin’ Weenies.” San Francisco summer is here and it means school is out, the days are longer, sometimes the sun actually breaks through the fog so let’s say that it’s a great time to spark up the grill!  This summer our butcher team added several new grill-friendly items to our grab-and-go prepack cases, featuring the sustainably-raised meat you know and love, seasoned and marinated with some of our favorite recipes and flavors.  All you have to do is grill:

  • SummerGrillingSemi-Boneless Mary’s Organic Chicken, seasoned with Omnivore Limone + Garlic & Herb Compound Butter: All the work for a classic brick chicken has been done for you, just throw it on the grill and add a brick (or heavy cast iron skillet)!
  • BN Ranch Korean Marinated Beef Short Ribs: A butcher case classic and staff favorite, now conveniently ready for you to grab-and-go. Serve it over rice, noodles, or just stand over the grill and eat ’em, they’re that good!
  • Five Dot Ranch Top Sirloin Beef Steak seasoned with Omnivore Salt + Garlic & Herb Compound Butter: An easy go-to value of a steak, perfect for weeknight meals, or a quick-and-easy impress your date dinner.
  • Niman Ranch Pancetta-Wrapped Pork Tenderloin: Pork on pork action for the pork lovers out there.

We’ve also added a couple of new sausages from our talented butcher team, to spice up our already hot lineup:

  • Jalepeno & Cheddar Pork Sausage: Tamara put together this spicy, cheesey winner of a sausage, sure to warm you up on a cold, foggy summer night!
  • Beulah’s Old Fashioned Chicken Sausage: Another sure shot!  Juicy, lemony and herby inspired by Chris Timm’s Grandmama’s recipe and still going strong three generations later.

Our new lineup of pre-marinated meats make weeknight dinners and weekend grilling that much simpler: just grab-and-go, whether you’re grilling at home or hitting the road in search of sun! For your foggy summer nights, try pairing your grilled delights with Zinfandels, hand-selected by our Alcohol Buyer, Trac, to complement the meat while still summery and sippable.

Not sure what to grill? We’ve teamed up with Angelo Garro’s Omnivore Salt to stock our butchers with his amazing salts, so our butcher team can season your meat to your exact specifications – let us do the work for you, so all you have to do is impress your dining companions.

Five Dot Ranch Prime Rib: My Favorite Holiday Meat

PrimeRibPhotoI love prime rib. Decadent, luscious, succulent, and juicy–it’s what I personally choose to eat on special occasions. And nothing is more special than a holiday meal you share with your family.

As Head Butcher and Meat Buyer, I always search out the best possible products that I can bring to our guests at Bi-Rite for their seasonal celebrations. This year, I selected prime rib from Five Dot Ranch, producers of some of the finest pasture-raised beef in California.

What makes prime rib from Five Dot so special is that they strike the perfect balance between grass feeding and grain finishing. Starting cattle on grass and pasture-raising allows the animals to develop a rich beef flavor and to grow at a natural pace. Grain finishing creates the ideal amount of marbling, for a buttery mouth feel and texture. It’s the best of both worlds, like Jay-Z and R. Kelly.

Five Dot is also committed to natural raising practices. Their beef is always 100% free of antibiotics and added hormones. They have been practicing low-stress handling and holistic management of their herd for almost fifteen years.

I recommended a serving size of roughly 1-1.5 lbs raw weight per person. And I am pleased to share this exceptional beef at a value price–normally $18.99 per pound, we’re offering it for the holiday season for just $15.99 per pound.

Prime rib is fairly straightforward to prepare. All that is required is some patience and a meat thermometer to cook it to perfection! Don’t forget to always check the temperature while cooking. I’ve provided some instructions below for cooking, carving, and making flavorful pan sauces.

I and the other Butchers at Bi-Rite are always here to answer your questions, prepare your meat to your specifications, and discuss preparation techniques. We look forward to sharing this wonderful prime rib with you and your guests! Happy Holidays!

How to Cook Prime Rib

1. The night before you plan to serve the roast, remove it from the wrapping and season liberally with salt. Allow the roast to air dry uncovered on a rack in the refrigerator overnight.

2. The next day, remove roast from refrigerator at least one hour, and up to three hours, before you plan to begin cooking. It is important for the roast to be near room temperature when it hits the oven in order to achieve even cooking.

3. Pre-heat oven to 250 degrees. Place roast, bone side down, on a rack in a roasting pan. Insert meat thermometer into center portion of roast, being careful not to touch the bone.

4. Cook slowly until internal temp on meat thermometer reaches 120 degrees for medium rare, 125 degrees for medium.

5. Remove roast from oven and tent loosely with foil. Reserve all pan juices from roasting pan and set aside to make a pan sauce. Wipe out roasting pan.

6. Increase oven temperature to 500 degrees/broil. When oven is very hot, uncover roast and return to oven. Cook until a crispy, brown crust has formed, 6-10 minutes.

7. Remove roast from oven and transfer to a large plate. Cover loosely with foil and allow to rest for 30-45 minutes.

How to Carve Prime Rib

Stand the roast upright, holding the bones with your free hand. Using a long thin-bladed carving knife, cut down between the bones and the meat, following the natural curvature as closely as possible. Once you reach the bottom, fold the bones out and cut through the last bit to remove them completely. Place the (now) boneless piece of meat on a cutting board, with the bone side down. Using your free hand, hold the roast steady and carve thin, even pieces. Carve only as many slices as you plan to eat right away; slice more as needed.

Don’t forget about the bones! There is lots of delicious meat in-between the bones that is great for eating or can be used in your pan sauce.

Making a Pan Sauce

Pan sauces are versatile, with endless flavor combinations.

1. After removing meat from pan, add more oil/fat (if necessary), onions, & garlic.

2. Deglaze the pan – add liquid and scrape up any browned bits from the bottom.

3. Bring liquid to a simmer and reduce by half of its volume.

4. Season any way you like:

Asian – broth, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, scallions, lime

Wine – onions, garlic, thyme, red wine, mushrooms

Caper – capers, shallots, white wine, lemon juice

…or just with salt & pepper!

5. Finish with a pad of butter (optional) and serve alongside meat.
