All of our animals here at John Henry’s are raised locally on our family farm in Millington, MI. We take very good care of them to make sure that they are healthy and happy. They are never given any hormones or antibiotics and our fields and feed are never exposed to harsh chemicals or pesticides. All of our animals are raised in the pastures and they love to spend their days being outside where the sunshine is! Due to their active lifestyle and healthy diet our animals develop less fat and a multitude of minerals and vitamins and healthy proteins. This means that many of our meat cuts are naturally leaner and healthier than what you might find from a factory farm.
 
With so many healthy meat cuts to choose from, we had a fun time selecting which meats would make the “cut” into this bundle for beginners. Something we hear from our customers a lot is “I just don’t want to mess it up.” Keeping that in mind, for this bundle we chose meat cuts that are easy to cook and that are pretty versatile for everyday meals. We wanted you to be able to start cooking with them immediately with no fear! So here’s what we’ve included in your Healthy Start Bundle…

Something we hear from our customers a lot is “I just don’t want to mess it up.” Keeping that in mind, for this bundle we chose meat cuts that are easy to cook and that are pretty versatile for everyday meals. We wanted you to be able to start cooking with them immediately with no fear! So here’s what we’ve included in your Healthy Start Bundle…

 

Our Pork Tenderloin is a huge customer favorite and is the most tender cut of pastured pork available! Our butcher trims the tenderloin and completely removes the tough, silver skin so that it is ready for seasonings! The Pork Tenderloin has a light flavor and is extremely versatile. It can be prepared a multitude of ways, just like you would a chicken breast! It can be used as a substitute in any chicken recipe, and is popular in sweet Asian-style dishes too. Try this easy recipe for Lemon Rosemary Pork Tenderloin.
Our Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts are larger and leaner than factory bred chickens and so tender and juicy! Our butcher debones and separates the breasts from our larger, Roaster Chickens. We trim the fat off of each breast so that it is ready to be cooked in your favorite recipe. In this bundle you will receive 4 single, larger, boneless, skinless chicken breasts packaged individually. If you need a recipe for these, try our Recipe Corner where you’ll find all kinds of ideas including Herb Grilled Chicken & Fire Roasted Vegetables. 
Our Ground Sirloin is our leanest beef grind at a 90/10 fat content blend. You’ll get great flavor without all the fat! Our Ground Sirloin is ground fresh in small batches from one beef at a time and no additives or fillers are used. Its just beef! From chili to tacos there are countless ways to use our Ground Sirloin, but if you need a head start try this recipe for The Best Burgers Ever!
Our exclusive blend of Ground Turkey is ground fresh here at John Henry’s with only breast and thigh meat, no fillers ever! Our ground turkey is quite lean, and naturally has less fat due to the active lifestyle of our turkeys, so it can dry out easily if overcooked. But this unique blend of dark and light meat together makes for a moist burger mixture, rather than dry. This is not your average ground turkey! You can easily substitute turkey in for any recipe that calls for a ground meat or try this recipe from our blog: How to Make Ground Turkey Lo Mein.
The English Roast is the perfect “Sunday Dinner” style roast because it’s best when slow cooked all day long. You can use an Instant Pot to speed up the process by a few hours. It’s similar to a chuck roast but has less fat and so it was a perfect choice for this bundle. Check out our recipe and cooking instructions for an Easy English Pot Roast.
Adding Salmon to the Healthy Start Bundle was kind of a no-brainer. It’s already a popular health food because Salmon is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. But there’s something special about John Henry’s Salmon… it’s Wild-Caught. That means it is super lean and meaty, quite different from what you might find from the farm-raised selection of fish from the grocery store. I am definitely a fan of the Salmon! Here’s a delicious recipe from our Farm 2 Table Dinners for a Sweet & Spicy Thai Salmon Dinner.
We’ve included a package of our delicious Chicken Breakfast Sausage Links for you to try. They are mildly seasoned and made with our special Ground Chicken. They are also dairy free! We don’t really have a recipe for these, because they can go with anything for breakfast so the choice is yours. But we have included some simple cooking instructions in our blog post: John Henry’s Breakfast Sausage Links.
We’ve also included some of John Henry’s famous Homemade Italian Turkey Bratwurst. Each of our Quarter Pound Homemade Bratwurst is ground, stuffed and twisted by hand by our butchers. Our Italian Turkey Brats are made with our pasture raised Ground Turkey and seasoned with a certified organic blend of Italian sausage spices. Brats can be used as a meal all by itself or cut up to be used in another meal. For traditional cooking instructions, visit our blog post All About Our Brats.
Your healthy start wouldn’t be complete without trying our Nitrate and Nitrite Free Hickory Smoked Bacon. We felt so strongly about this that we decided to offer it as a free bonus with the purchase of this bundle! Find out more about our bacon and get the cooking instructions on our blog post John Henry’s Hickory Smoked Bacon & Side Pork.

Easy English Pot Roast

The English Roast is one of my favorite cuts of beef for pot roast. The way the meat just falls apart in to stringy shreds, so full of flavor and so tender….YUMM! It is frequently on the menu at our house. We love that it is so simple to make and the shredded leftovers can easily fit into so many different recipes.

 

 

The English Roast is also known as the “Shoulder Pot Roast” and is cut from the front shoulder of the beef, the “Chuck Shoulder”. This is a well used muscle for pasture-raised cows, which means the roast can be tough if it isn’t cooked right. There are 2 key factors needed to get this roast to fall-apart tenderness; moisture and time. Traditionally, you’d want to slow cook this roast for hours making it a popular “Sunday Dinner” because you could start the roast in the crockpot before you head off to church and it would be perfectly done by the time you got back home. I remember this happening countless times growing up at Mom and Grandma’s house! These days we have fancy gadgets like the Instant Pot that can turn out a perfect roast in a fraction of the time. I am definitely a fan!

 

 

You can cook your roast from fresh or frozen, but fresh is best for flavor. If you are like me and forget to thaw it out ahead of time, it’ll be fine! Just throw it in there and consider if you may want to add a little more cooking time depending on the size of the roast. The best scenario is when I can cook the roast fresh as soon as it’s delivered from the farm!

 

First, I’ll rub the roast down with a generous amount of sea salt, black pepper, and sometimes I’ll add a favorite seasoning blend or cinnamon to the rub, and then set the roast aside. You can sear the roast in a skillet at this point if you’d like, however my family doesn’t care for it prepared that way and I’m all about saving time and dishes, so we skip right to veggies!

 

You’ll want an assortment of aromatic vegetables to help flavor the roast. Any combination of onions, garlic, carrots and celery will give a nice aroma. Just coarsely chop them up, enough to cover the bottom of your pot. Pour in about a cup or two of beef broth or water. Moisture is one of the keys for tenderness, remember? Place your roast up on top of the vegetables so that it is mostly above the liquid, the veggies acting as a trivet for the roast to rest upon. This will help the seasoning rub stay locked onto the meat while it essentially steams above the vegetables.

 

The only thing to do now is set the cook time! For an Instant Pot, about 90 minutes at high pressure is perfect for a 3lb roast, even from frozen. You want to estimate the cooking time at about 30 minutes per lb. I prefer to let the roast rest in the Instant Pot while waiting for it to natural release, but it can be rushed a little towards the end without bothering the roast too much. If you’re cooking in a crock pot, set it at med/high for about 6 hours, or 2 hours per lb. Then wait. It’s worth it! When dinner is ready, serve up the roast with the stewed vegetables and a batch of mashed potatoes on the side!

 

 

This cut of meat lends so many variations and recipes, we’d love to hear how you prepare an English Roast for your family or how you use the leftovers! Leave us a comment below and Happy Cooking!

Filet Mignon Bundle

If there was ever a cut of beef that truly stands out above all the rest, it is definitely the Filet Mignon. If you’ve never had a grass-fed and grass-finished Filet, then you haven’t really lived. If you have had one, then I’m certain you’d agree! From either stand point you’re probably reading this because you want to know more about them and why we chose to offer them in a bundle!
 
The Filet Mignon is an extremely tender cut of steak. I mean, melt in your mouth tender, cut with a butter knife tender… ok, maybe not a butter knife, I mean it’s still meat, you’ll need a steak knife, but it’s sooooo tasty, super easy to cook and did I mention tender? That’s because the Filet Mignon is cut from the Whole Beef Tenderloin which is a highly prized beef roast cut from the top loin near the spine. This thin supportive muscle is rarely used, so it develops almost no fat, and extremely fine marbling. Our cows are raised out in the pasture year-round. In the summer, they graze on the grasses and delicious foliage we’ve planted for them. We supplement their grass-fed diets throughout the winter with fermented corn silage that we grow and ferment right here on the farm. Due to their active lifestyle and healthy diets, our beef develops even finer marbling, more nutritious fats and a bounty of vitamins, minerals and proteins that can only be found in beef that’s been raised in the sunlight. You won’t get steak like this from a factory farm. John Henry’s Filet Mignon cuts are truly exceptional!
 
The tenderloin cut is very rare because there are only 2 tenderloins per cow, about 8lbs of meat in total. The average cow weighs about 800lbs at maturity (about 340lbs after butchering) so this 8lbs of tenderloin is also very expensive. At John Henry’s Meats, we want to make sure that you get your money’s worth! You’ll receive your filet’s fully trimmed, with all the tough silver skin removed for you. The whole tenderloin is a very long cut of meat with a thicker “top” portion and it gradually tapers down to a smaller “tip” end. Our butchers will cut the filet mignon steaks from the thicker, top portion so that you receive 10 beautifully shaped steaks. To see how we do it check out Katie’s Whole Beef Tenderloin Video.
 
 
This bundle is worthy of a special occasion, holiday dinner or a great chance to put some of your favorite steaks in the freezer so you never run out. Our filets will come vacuum sealed in freezer-safe packaging. The process will squish them down a little, so be sure and give them a chance to rest and reshape before you cook them. They will look lovely when seasoned and wrapped in twine with a rosemary sprig or wrapped in a few pieces of our nitrate-free Hickory Smoked Bacon and formed into a tall stack for smoking on the grill.
 
 
Or try our Garlic Butter Steak Recipe for a simple and deliciously easy way to cook this incredible meat cut. It’s a great recipe for any of our steak cuts really, but the filet mignon really is truly a cut above the rest.
 
 
Our Filet Mignon Bundle includes 10 Filet Mignon steaks, uniformly cut at 2 inches or 8 ounces each, for a discounted price of $184.99. Unlike our traditional pricing, this is a flat rate price and is not a weight-based quote. If you added these same 10 steaks to your shopping cart individually, it would cost upwards of $190 and the final price may vary depending on the final weights of the individual steaks, which are sold by the pound. Purchasing them in the bundle is your best chance to save money on this expensive cut of beef. Save even more with Farm Share! You can double up your savings by having this already discounted bundle ship with your subscription order this month. You’ll get the bundle price plus your subscription discount!

Spatchcock Turkey

Roasting a Whole Turkey for Thanksgiving is a classic American tradition that many families participate in every year. Not just for the holidays, roasted turkeys and chickens make a fabulous family dinner any time of the year. But roasting a whole, pasture-raised turkey the traditional way can take awhile. If you don’t have quite as much time to invest in your turkey dinner, or are just looking to change it up a little this year, then you may want to try Spatchcock.

Spatchcocking is the method of butterflying a whole turkey or whole chicken so that it can lay completely flat while cooking. This allows the meat to cook more evenly and much more quickly. To Spatchcock your Pasture-Raised Turkey our butcher will remove the backbone completely. Then he will spread the turkey out, skin side up, pressing down hard to crack the breast bone so the turkey can lay totally flat on the pan. You can do this yourself at home with a really good pair of poultry scissors and a little “oomph”, but it does take some strength especially for larger birds.

Give your Spatchcock Turkey a good seasoning rub down, or brine it overnight for a boost of flavor and texture. Roast it, grill it, fry it, smoke it… the choice is yours! For roasting, add a little water in the bottom tray of the roasting pan for added moisture, or dry-roast on a sheet pan with veggies. At 350 degrees, a 10-12 lb Spatchcock Turkey will take about 90 minutes to be roasted to carving perfection. For crispier skin, roast at 400 degrees for another 15 minutes or so, then let the turkey rest before carving it up.

There’s more than one way to cut a turkey… Let us do the work for you! Complimentary custom butchering is available with any order upon request. Contact us to order your Pasture-Raised Turkey and ask us to Spatchcock it! www.JohnHenrys.net
