Taiwanese Gua Bao Buns With Spiced Heritage Pork Belly

Taiwanese Gua Bao Buns With Spiced Heritage Pork Belly

These gua bao pork belly buns are the most popular street food in Taiwan. It’s easy to see why they’re so well-loved - they’re salty, sweet, and savory with robustly marinated pork belly in a fluffy bao bun. Since you can’t really go wrong with marinated, tender pork belly, these would be delicious on any type of bun. But if you can, I really recommend either buying or making the gua bao buns. They have a cloud-like texture and make these sandwiches truly wonderful to eat. You can find them pre-made at Asian markets and some gourmet grocery stores. They’re not too hard to make at home, either. The ingredients are really simple and they just take a bit of time and care. There are lots of easy to follow recipes available online for making bao buns from scratch.

Cooking With Our Delicious Heritage Pork Bacon


Now, onto the subject of pork belly. What’s the difference between pork belly and bacon, you ask? Well, they’re the same thing. They’re the exact same cut of meat. Bacon is commonly found in both cured and uncured varieties, while the same meat sold as pork belly is always uncured and often unsliced. Our heritage pork bacon is sliced and uncured, making it extremely convenient to prepare these sandwiches. This bacon is from Red Wattle pigs, renowned for having the best flavor of any heritage breed.


Free Range Heritage Pork Raised On The Rio Grande River


Our heritage pork is raised completely free range on a beautiful small farm here in Northern New Mexico. Each animal has approximately one half acre of land. These pigs roam as they please, swimming in the Rio Grande river. The farm is a rehabilitation center for those struggling with drug addictions. The center features agricultural therapy through caring for and interacting with the pigs. These animals get daily interaction, treats and live a completely stress-free life. Living stress-free is important for all animals, but particularly essential for pigs because they are quite sensitive. This pork is USDA Certified and grain fed with a nutritionally balanced diet. The pigs consume a nutritionally ideal ratio of crude protein, crude fiber and plant fiber. This pork is completely hormone, steroid and antibiotic free, just like all our other meat.

Breakfast Casserole With Heritage Pork Mild Italian Sausage

Breakfast Casserole With Heritage Pork Mild Italian Sausage

Are you a breakfast person? I know I am - I wake up starving pretty much every morning. To be completely honest, I often resort to eating toast as I run out the door on my way to work. But I know from experience that I feel much better throughout the day if I eat something with protein first thing in the morning. This casserole is really easy to make in advance - you can either refrigerate it overnight and pop it in the oven first thing in the morning, or have it already baked and reheat individual portions. It’s also a great weekend breakfast for a lazy Sunday.

Breakfast Casserole With Heritage Pork Mild Italian Sausage - Beck & Bulow

Flavorful Free Range Heritage Pork Sausage


I used our heritage pork Italian sausage for this recipe, and loved the spicy yet slightly sweet flavor. This would also be amazing with our Hatch green chile pork sausage (a New Mexico specialty). Next time, I think I’ll add in some chopped wild boar bacon for good measure. I think the flavor of this casserole was also really enhanced by the fact that I used fresh eggs from the local farmer’s market. I find that there’s a huge difference in the way those taste compared with the free range ones I get from the supermarket - and I think the difference is in the freshness. If you don’t have fresh eggs available, don’t worry… this will still turn out delicious. I think this casserole would also be great with some shredded potatoes mixed in.

Breakfast Casserole With Heritage Pork Mild Italian Sausage - Beck & Bulow

Instructions:



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly grease a 9x13” baking dish with butter or bison tallow and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dozen eggs, sour cream, milk and shredded cheese. Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Whisk just until the mixture is combined. Set aside.
  3. Cook the mild Italian sausage in a large cast iron skillet over medium heat. Cook the meat until browned, breaking it apart into crumbles. Pour off most of the excess grease from the skillet (leave enough to sauté the vegetables) and add the browned sausage into the bowl with the egg and cheese mixture.
  4. Cook the chopped onions in the skillet for 2-3 minutes, then add in the bell peppers and cook for two more minutes. Remove from the skillet with a slotted spoon and add them into the large mixing bowl with the rest of the ingredients. Give it a quick stir to combine everything evenly.
  5. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 45 minutes or until the eggs are set (the center should have a slight give to it). Serve immediately and enjoy!

Heritage Pork Rib Chops With Orange Coriander Spice Butter

Heritage Pork Rib Chops With Orange Coriander Spice Butter

As a kid, I never really liked pork chops. It always seemed like they were dry and boring. Enter our heritage pork rib chops - they’ve changed my opinion on pork chops forever. They’re tender, flavorful and absolutely delicious. I decided to make a richly spiced compound butter to slather on, giving them an abundance of amazing flavor. Ginger, orange zest, garlic and coriander combine to make the perfect accompaniment to these rib chops. The fact that these chops are bone-in makes them that much juicer. The bone traps moisture in the meat, and adds an extra layer of meaty flavor to the dish. You’ll never want to make boneless pork chops again!

Orange Coriander Spiced Grass Fed Compound Butter


Everyone will love these pork chops. I love making compound butters, and there’s so many variations to play with when it comes to herbs and spices. I love the combination of fresh and zesty orange with warming ginger and fragrant coriander - and garlic of course. I love grass fed butter and getting something that’s well sourced will make your cooking taste that much better. My personal favorite is Kerrygold. The flavor, texture and color are amazing and it just enhances the taste of anything you put it on. Grass fed butter is a great source of nutrients and it’s one of my go-to sources of healthy fat (besides meat of course). Compound butters are a total game changer when it comes to cooking. Experiment with different ingredients and find your favorites! It can add something amazing to almost any dish.

Heritage Pork Spare Ribs + Homemade Barbecue Sauce

Heritage Pork Spare Ribs + Homemade Barbecue Sauce

I never realized how incredibly simple it is to make mouthwatering, super tender spare ribs until I slow roasted them in the oven. It’s such a delicious, flavorful main course and it requires essentially no prep work or actual cooking besides seasoning the meat and putting it in the oven. But we all know what the absolutely essential accompaniment to falling apart tender ribs is - finger lickin’ good barbecue sauce. There’s plenty of delicious barbecue sauces out there available for purchase, if you’d rather do that. Making your own is really easy though, and allows you to completely customize the flavor to your preferences.

Heritage Pork Spare Ribs + Homemade Barbecue Sauce - Beck & Bulow

The Best Pork Spare Ribs You’ve Ever Tasted


Our heritage pork spare ribs are literally the best I’ve ever had. The flavor is incredible, not to mention this is the only pork I’ll eat because I know exactly where it comes from and how it’s raised. To ensure that ribs turn out as tender and flavorful as possible, it’s important to remove the thin membrane layer on top. Simply use a blunt knife to edge underneath the membrane, pull it off and discard. Then season the meat generously with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and pop it in the oven to cook low and slow until they reach mouthwatering perfection.


Now, onto the matter of making your own barbecue sauce. This part takes a little extra effort but trust me… it’s so worth it. Your taste buds will thank you. You can easily make the sauce while the ribs are baking and set it aside for when they’re finished. Simply slow cook the onions until they’re golden brown, translucent and heavenly smelling. Then add in ketchup, sriracha, coconut sugar or honey and apple cider vinegar. Stir to combine and cook for a couple minutes to incorporate the flavors. Season to taste and set aside. If you plan on making a larger amount ahead to keep in the refrigerator, I’d recommend making a portion of it without the cooked onions as it will keep longer. Slather generously on anything and everything.

Breakfast Burritos With Green Chile Heritage Pork Sausage

Breakfast Burritos With Green Chile Heritage Pork Sausage

Breakfast burritos are a staple here in New Mexico where Beck & Bulow is based. When I went to India for a month a couple years ago, these burritos were the one thing that I found myself fantasizing about eating when I got home (as much as I love Indian food). You’ll find breakfast burritos in every restaurant, coffee shop, and home kitchen. They’re the perfect portable, satisfying and filling breakfast to get you through your morning. It’s easy to wrap one up to send with a loved one as they leave for work for the day. And yes, they pair perfectly with a good cup of coffee. Hatch green chile can be somewhat difficult to find outside the southwest, but the good news is that we carry pork sausage with green chile already mixed in. These burritos are completely craveable and will become your new favorite for a quick breakfast.

Breakfast Brought To You By The Land Of Enchantment


I kept this recipe relatively simple, and it’s absolutely delicious without anything else added in. I am a big fan of potatoes in breakfast burritos, if you have them on hand and don’t mind the extra bit of time it takes to cook them. Similarly, you can also spend less time cooking the onions for a sharper onion flavor, more crunch and less time spent over the stove. The hatch chiles are spicy without packing a crazy amount of heat. If you like spicy food but don’t usually go for anything too extreme, you’ll probably love this sausage. Whether you’re New Mexico born and raised or have yet to visit the Land of Enchantment, these burritos will have you daydreaming about the sunny skies of the southwest.

How To Make An Incredible Christmas Ham With Heritage Pork

How To Make An Incredible Christmas Ham With Heritage Pork

Christmas ham is always an impressive centerpiece, full of flavor and the perfect way to treat loved ones to a mouthwatering holiday meal. We recently started offering a limited quantity of heritage pork, and have untreated hams available with absolutely no additives. Cooking a raw ham like this is different from cooking a ham that’s already smoked and flavored. I think you’ll be thrilled with the results of flavoring the ham yourself, and this recipe uses some really tasty ingredients like maple syrup, ginger, cinnamon, apple cider vinegar, honey and toasted pecans. It’ll create that perfect sweet and mildly spicy flavor that glazed hams are known for. This will create a Christmas dinner to remember, and kids and adults alike will adore the amazing meal this ham creates.

Free Range Heritage Pork From A Small Farm


Our heritage pork is raised completely free range on a beautiful small farm here in Northern New Mexico. Each animal has approximately one half acre of land.

  • 1.5 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1.5 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper

How To Make An Incredible Christmas Ham With Heritage Pork - Beck & Bulow

Instructions:



  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare a large roasting pan with a rack and set aside.
  2. Use a small, sharp knife to score the ham on all sides, making a diamond pattern. Cut through the skin completely, but not down into the flesh of the ham.
  3. Mix the sea salt and freshly ground black pepper together in a small dish. Use your hands to generously rub the seasoning all over the ham, pressing it firmly into the score marks. Place the ham on the roasting rack and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.
  4. When 20 minutes has elapsed, reduce the temperature on the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Whisk together the maple syrup, apple cider vinegar and ground cinnamon. Generously baste the ham with the mixture once every hour, spooning fat from the bottom of the pan each time. Continue to cook the ham until it reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit (check temperature after 45 minutes and go from there).
  5. Mix together the chopped pecans, honey and ground ginger.
  6. Remove the ham from the oven, remove it from the roasting pan and coat it thoroughly with the pecan, honey and ginger mixture. Loosely tent with foil to keep warm. Let the meat rest for approximately 20 to 30 minutes before serving.
  7. Skim the fat off the juices from the roasting pan, then cook on the stove over medium-high heat. Scrape with a wooden spoon to mix any browned, flavorful bits into the sauce. Season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Reserve for serving on top of the ham.
  8. Slice to serve with sauce drizzled over top of each portion. Enjoy!
