Wagyu Short Rib Barbacoa

Oh. Yeah. Our Wagyu short ribs are braised in a heady mix of spices and four types of chile peppers in this easy recipe. The spoon-tender, spicy meat makes an excellent filling for tacos.

Slow-Cooker Pulled Pork for Tacos

While used primarily in the cooler months, a slow-cooker is great in summer too. Case in point, this super easy Mexican-style recipe renders spoon-tender, juicy, and flavorful pulled pork with minimal effort – and without heating up the house. Our hickory smoked bacon is a healthier stand-in for the liquid smoke used in some recipes. We used one Berkshire pork shoulder which will yield enough pulled pork for 8-10 people.

Small-Batch Porcelet Carnitas

Our exclusive Porcelet collar roast makes the most tender and flavorful small-batch carnitas, perfect for tacos for 2 to 4 people. This milk-fed piglet is the final work in succulent pork and makes a memorable taco.

Venison Carne Asada

Our venison butt tender is marinated in a mixture of chile peppers, citrus, and spices before being quickly grilled in this easy recipe. The resulting carne asada is super tender and full of flavor.venison-carne-asada-recipe.jpg
