We've marinated our Bar Five Farms Angus boneless beef short ribs in a Korean style 'Bulgogi' marinade, rich with garlic, ginger, soy sauce and Gochujang, that savoury, spicy, slightly sweet fermented Korean chili paste. The short ribs are combined in the pouch with a trio of sautéed mushrooms; King, Shitake and Cremini, then slow-cooked sous vide. The result....melt in your mouth and oh so tasty!
(Pictured here with Roasted Garlic Smashed Potatoes, Roasted Carrots and Parsnips that are sold separately, and a trio of mushrooms)
The classic French Bistro menu item. Delicious, melt-in-your-mouth duck, with crazy crispy skin! We season our King Cole duck leg with sea salt and black pepper, then vacuum pack it and cook it sous vide... slowly... very slowly…
The ultimate comfort food…? Quite possibly! We slow-“braise”, sous vide, our local Ontario lamb shanks with roasted garlic and onions and a touch of rosemary, to create a truly soul-satisfying combination of flavours and melt-in-your-mouth lamb. The juices in the pouch can be simmered down to make a very rich tasting sauce! Delicious served with our Roasted Garlic Smashed Potatoes...check out our Ontario Farm to Table Dinner Kit.
A perfect, hearty, classic Italian dish. A slow sous vide "braised" Veal Shank is cooked in a rich wine sauce with tomatoes, sweet peppers, lots of garlic and a hint of lemon zest and rosemary. Don't forget about the hidden delicacy in the centre of the osso buco...the prize in the bone; the smooth as silk marrow. Wonderful served over a bed of our Roasted Garlic Smashed Potatoes, ourPortobello Smashed Potatoes or Pappardelle pasta.
Think of Persian cuisine and you can almost smell the exotic spices. Cinnamon, cardamom, cumin, saffron..... We combine some of these spices and rub them on our Ontario lamb shank before smearing it with some Bedemjan - a traditional thick, slightly tart eggplant-tomato 'stew'. Slow-cooked, sous vide, to a fall-off-the-bone consistency, this lamb shank will transport you back to the Silk Road trade route! Your owe it to yourself to serve this with our Jeweled Persian Rice Pilaf (sold separately) Noosh-e-jan!
Long thought to have been a dish created by the gauchos of Argentina to flavour meat cooked over an open fire, chimichurri is now essential to Argentinian cuisine. It is a fresh sauce with a hit of acidity and plenty of fresh parsley, oregano and cilantro. We use it to marinate our Petite Tender steak, then add more to the pouch before cooking it to a perfect medium-rare. The juices from the meat combine with the chimichurri and voila!, a delicious sauce is made to drizzle over top. Serve this with our Mexican Firecracker Rice. (sold separately) Buen Provecho!
Heat the petite tender steak following the Heating Instructions link above. Once it has been heated, remove it from the pouch, saving the pouch juices, and transfer it to a cutting board.
Slice the steak into medallions and place them on your plate. Drizzle the chimichurri juices from the pouch over top.
You can also serve this product chilled. Simply thaw this in your refrigerator, open the pouch, slice and serve. Great to top an Avocado Toast with! Use the chimichurri pouch juices as the base for a vinaigrette.
A dish inspired by the unofficial beverage of Ireland, Guinness stout! We reduce Guinness with a rich stock, fragrant with fresh herbs and a touch of honey to make a glaze that we pour over one of our local Ontario lamb shanks. We slow cook this sous vide, to a melt-in-your-mouth consistency. Serve this with our Colcannon and Roasted Organic Carrots and Parsnips (sold separately) to complete the Irish countryside experience! Slainte!
Our Bar Five Farms boneless beef short ribs are seasoned with sea salt and black pepper, grilled, then cooked sous vide for a very, very long time. They are melt-in-your-mouth delicious and the juices in the pouch can be made into a quick and delicious pan sauce. They are also great with any number of our barbecue sauces (our chef’s partial to the Plum Butter Balsamic BBQ Sauce). Pair the ribs with our Poutine Potatoes for a real treat!
Heat the ribs following the Heating Instructions link above. Once they have been heated, remove them from the pouch.
Pour the pouch juices into a small saucepan and add 60g of red wine and bring to a boil. Reduce by half or until desired thickness has been achieved.
Slice the short ribs, if you like, and place them on your plate. Drizzle the pan sauce over top.
Or....place them on a baking sheet, slather with barbecue sauce and place under the broiler for 2-4 minutes to crisp up, being careful not to burn the sauce. Or, slather them with barbecue sauce and place them on your preheated barbecue.
Slice the short ribs and place on your plate. Serve with additional sauce if desired.
Often described as a Party-in-Your-Mouth, Jambalaya is an American Cajun/Creole rice dish with French, African and Spanish roots.
We've included Cajun Blackened Chicken (drum & thigh), Shrimps, Andouille Sausage and Smoked Ham. These are cooked sous vide in a richly seasoned tomato broth, with our own blend of Cajun spices, that is absorbed by the rice. This has a bit of a kick to it! (med. spice)

Cajun Blackened Chicken Breast Best described as a N’Awlins-party-in-your-mouth! Our Fenwood Farm's boneless, skinless chicken breast is generously sprinkled with our own blend of Cajun spices (based on Chef Paul Prudhomme's) then seared in a crazy hot cast iron pan – both sides. We vacuum pack it and cook it sous vide to retain all of the moisture.
The exotic aroma of this duck dish is reminiscent of the street vendors in Kowloon Bay, Hong Kong! Ginger, soy, star anise and sesame are combined in a marinade for our King Cole Duck Breast.

Then we cook it sous vide to a tender, medium-rare doneness. Pairs brilliantly with our Coconut Rice or Red and Black Thai Rice (sold separately) Guong dong wah!
