Posted on: April 27th, 2012

No matter how much you like to cook, some nights you need a shortcut, so we’ve been working on a line of great tasting side dishes that go from the freezer to microwave to table in minutes. Hand crafted in small batches by our chefs, keep a few on hand for a tasty suppertime solution!

Tony’s Classic Suppertime Solution

Steak Ranchero

Strips of Sierra Steak browned in masa corn flour and simmered in a combination of tomatoes, bell peppers, onions, jalapenos, herbs, spices, beef broth and limejuice to create a thick, meaty sauce with mild to medium heat.  Great over rice or on a bun as a Sloppy Jose, and even better with sour cream and cilantro!  No Gluten ingredients.

Steak Ranchero: A satisfying family entree, we suggest stirring in sour cream and fresh cilantro after heating.


Chicago Italian Beef

Center cut chuck browned in garlic and herbs and slowly cooked for 4-5 hours in wine and stock, torn into large shreds and tossed with stir fried bell peppers and it’s own defatted stock (for dipping like French Dip).  Pictured here with spicy Italian giardinera and melted provolone on a demi baguette.  Heating time about 8 minutes. No gluten ingredients.

Chicago Beef: big chunks of tender, juicy beef with onions and peppers and enough broth for dipping or to make gravy. The perfect suppertime solution!

Barbacoa Beef

Meaty center blade chuck slow braised in a classic recipe with tomatoes, beer, herbs, chiles & chipotles and onions with a little boost from cocoa and vinegar.  Once falling apart tender we skim off the fat, break the meat into chunks by hand and toss it in the rich tomatoey sauce.  Pictured here with our Mexican Rice, it’s great as a main dish, or served in burritos or tacos.  Heating time, about 8 minutes.

Beef Barbacoa: Richly flavored with a hint of acidity and a perfect balance of seasoning and heat.

Beef or Chicken Burritos

Grilled Chicken: Grilled skinless natural chicken hand-shredded and blended with our Green Chile Sauce, refried beans and lots of shredded cheddar.  Rolled in fresh local tortillas and wrapped in paper for better microwave performance.
Shredded Beef: Tender shredded beef tossed with our Green Chile Sauce, refried beans and lots of shredded cheddar. Heats from frozen in about 2 minutes.
