April 16th, 2013
Happy April!! We are nearly a month into spring and halfway through National Food Month. For those who are not aware of the food holidays, we have a few coming up this week that you can “celebrate” with Old Neighborhood products!!
First and foremost, remember that you can submit your own recipes along with a picture to our website! It does not matter if it is a family recipe, a modified one that you found online, or a spur-of-the-moment creation. We would love to see just how you enjoy our products! Once submitted here, we will share it with everyone else, while giving you the credit 😉 .
Now, back to the holidays:
April 16: Day of the Mushroom
In the morning, you can start off with our Cheese Steak Omelet with Mushroom, Pepper, and Onion. This recipe uses our Shaved Steak which is made from 100% beef, with no more than 10% fat. With our shaved steak shaved thin for your convenience, it means you can make a quick meal, leaving more time to enjoy your day!
On the same topic of Shaved Steak, you can easily make a Mushroom Cheese Steak, using this recipe and adding mushrooms!
You don’t need to limit yourself to these recipes, as mushrooms can practically go with any dish! Share your own recipes here!
April 19: Garlic Day
Now, you don’t have to go biting in cloves of garlic. Instead, you can discreetly enjoy Garlic Day by eating some of our products that are flavored with garlic or by enjoying a few recipes that include some form of garlic.
Our Cooked Corned Beef Round, Cooked Pastrami Round, Cooked Salami, and Mortadella are all fresh deli meats that are flavored with garlic. Aside from these deli products, we also have our Beef Franks that are flavored with garlic!
In terms of recipes, you can easily make Sesame Beef with Spicy Green Beans (left picture below). This recipe calls for minced garlic cloves as well as chili garlic sauce, cooked with our Beef Shaved Steak, which is 100% beef with no more than 10% fat.
If you enjoy pasta and our Hot Italian Sausage, you can make Orecchiette with Hot Italian Sausage (middle picture below), which also calls for minced garlic cloves.
You can also make our Kielbasa & Clams Linguine (right picture below), which calls for chopped garlic.
Like mushrooms, garlic can be complementary to almost any dish, so once again, don’t limit yourself to these recipes.
That concludes our holidays for this week. There will be more next week! Don’t forget to submit your recipes here! We would love to hear from you.
