When is ground veal preferred over ground beef? In recipes like this! This stir fry is inspired by Thai flavours, which pair perfectly with the sweet, mild flavour of ground veal. Sometimes I find the strong, meaty flavour of our ground beef can over-power the delicate balance of the sweet, salty and sour flavours that make this style of cooking so special, but our veal is just perfect. So give our ground veal a try in this easy-peasy, perfect-for-springtime, veal of a meal!
Spray Creek Sunday Sauce
From Farmer Mo: Now, I am not Italian, and I do not claim to be, but I definitely aspire to be able to cook like a Nonna. One of my best friends learned to cook Sunday Sauce from her Nonna and even though she can’t tell me the exact secrets, I have put enough research and love into this recipe that I can confidently say my sauce should make any Nonna proud.
Pasta alla Genovese
Hailing from the Campania region of Italy, this onion based sauce is probably about as simple as it gets and will have a lasting effect on your taste buds and soul. Enjoy another fabulous recipe from Spray Creek’s own Farmer Mo.
There are many wonderful things about life and one of those wonderful things is a bowl of ramen. It might seem an intimidating task to make a broth from scratch, but rest assured this is a simple recipe that will bring a glorious bowl of noodles and delectable broth one step closer to your table and tummy.
The Reverse Sear
If you ask me, the reverse sear is the way to cook any steak or chops. Using this method will make a good steak even better, and can turn a ‘tougher’ steak into a gourmet experience. Best of all, it is about as easy as it could possibly be.
The Mud Daubers
We first started farming over a decade ago in Washington state. At the time we were also running a property caretaking business, volunteering as EMTs with the local fire department, and managing our own off-grid homestead as well as raising meat and vegetables for our community. After we left, our friends and neighbours Joe and Kate told us they had a nickname for us: ‘the daubers’. Apparently our constant frenzied busyness reminded them of never-resting mud dauber wasps constantly working to build their nests.
One Roast Chicken at a Time
We consider chicken our specialty. As you know, our chickens are Certified Organic by NOOA, Animal Welfare Approved by A Greener World, and raised outdoors on beautiful pasture. But that’s not all… We also raise a slower-growing breed called Freedom Rangers; these lead a more healthy and active life than typical excessively-fast-growing industrial chickens and are therefore much more flavourful and healthy on the plate. And this year, for the first time, our chicks come from non-GMO parent flocks!
Even out on the ranch…
…we’re feeling the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
I have to admit, when we first started hearing news about the emerging virus, we thought we would be relatively isolated from the effects out here in the boonies. In case you’re dreaming of a simpler life in the country right about now, I’m here to report that we’re not immune to the effects (forgive the pun).
