To get you started, here are 10 recipes featuring the widest variety of high-quality meat and seafood delivered directly to your door by Wild Fork.
Grilled Jerk Chicken Legs with Rice and Peas
With a Jamaican-inspired feast of jerk chicken and a sweet and spicy rice and pea salad, you can transport your taste buds to the Caribbean any night of the week. While the salad chills in the fridge, grill up some bone-in, skin-on Jerk Chicken Leg Quarters over medium heat until cooked through and the skin is browned, then serve.
Grilled Korean BBQ Short Ribs
You don’t have to leave your backyard to enjoy some delicious Korean BBQ. Cut back on your prep time by reaching for Canadian AAA Bone-in Beef Korean BBQ Chuck Short Ribs, tossed in a savoury spice mix. This Korean short ribs recipe goes from grill to table in under 30 minutes.
Pork Coppa Steaks with Lemon Butter
If you’ve never tried extra-thin pork shoulder steaks, also known as coppa steaks, prepare to be amazed. They’re beautifully marbled so they won’t dry out on the barbecue. For an easy meal that delivers on flavour, grill Boneless Pork Coppa Thin Steaks with melted lemon-garlic butter, and serve them with your favourite side salad.
Chef’s Beef Back Ribs
There’s no denying that pork ribs are delicious, but it’s time to add recipes for beef ribs on the grill — or in the smoker — to your spring BBQ plans. Start with tender Canadian AAA Bone-in Beef Back Ribs and a homemade spice rub, then pop them in the smoker to cook them low and slow.
Cedar Planked Salmon Bowl
Using Wild Fork’s Smoky Applewood Cedar-Planked Steelhead Salmon, you can create a restaurant-quality meal in a snap. Fire up the grill and cook the salmon directly on the cedar plank, and then serve it on a bed of fresh cucumber, carrot and bell pepper with a drizzle of homemade dressing.
Grilled Lamb Leg Steak with Pistachio Gremolata Sauce
Curious about lamb but worried it will be too gamey for your palate? Give these succulent, mild-tasting Lamb Leg Steaks a try. Grilled to perfection in less than 30 minutes, enjoy them topped with a pistachio gremolata and your favourite barbecued veggies on the side.
It takes time and patience, but smoked brisket pastrami is worth the effort every time. Begin with a Canadian AAA Boneless Beef Texas Brisket Flat Roast, aged for tenderness and seasoned with a zesty Southern spice blend, and transform it into the ultimate homemade deli meat. When it’s ready to eat, slice it up and serve it warm on sandwich bread with mustard, and don’t forget a side of dill pickle spears.
Jerk Pork Jamaican Ribs
You may be more familiar with jerk chicken, but jerk pork is also a must-try. For a grilling recipe that you’ll return to all spring and summer long, begin with rich and juicy Berkshire Bone-in Pork Whole Back Ribs. Renowned for its tenderness and depth of flavour, Berkshire is considered the finest pork available. Marinate the ribs in a homemade jerk sauce overnight. Then, grill them slowly using a smoker box for an extra layer of flavour.
Grilled Tri Tip with Pan Jus
One of the most flavourful cuts of beef, tri tip roast is on many fine dining menus, but it’s something you should consider grilling at home. Take a tender, marbled USDA Prime Boneless Beef Sirloin Tri Tip marinated with a blend of spices and sear it on the grill before cooking it over indirect heat. When it’s ready, slice it against the grain and serve with a pan sauce made from the meat drippings and extra marinade along with some beef broth and butter.
Indian Inspired Grilled Flank Steak
Why have an ordinary beef steak when you can have an extraordinary bison steak? Bison Boneless Flank Steak, one of the leanest cuts of meat available, grills to a tender, melt-in-your-mouth finish. Try preparing it with an Indian-inspired marinade made with a blend of aromatic spices and a touch of honey for a delicious main dish.
