John and I believe in using every possible piece of the pig when processing. From the trim we produce Circle B Ranch’s ground pork, Marina’s Italian Style Meatballs, Big John's Nitrite Free Hot Dogs and Circle B Ranch’s line of sausages. These products make some of the best recipes even tastier, and they are so versatile they can be used in almost any dish. For example, I used our Circle B Ranch ground pork and Marina’s Homemade Ketchup in an Ina Garten meatloaf recipe, and it turned out to be absolutely delicious! What’s even better is the prep time for this recipe is only 20 minutes! I also like to use our ground pork in a superb Bolognese Sauce recipe from Lidia Bastianich. I love Bolognese Sauce; it is one of the best comfort foods. Filled with veggies, meat, and tomato sauce and red wine, this dish will soothe your hunger as well as your soul. When I prepared this recipe, I incorporated our Circle B Ranch ground pork and Marina’s Italian Style Tomato Sauce—and it turned out absolutely scrumptious! My Marina’s Italian Style Meatballs are some of my favorite products. Why? First of all, I make them in two sizes—regular and mini. Also, they are fully cooked and ready to go. Just heat them up and serve. Because of this, it’s simple to include them in any recipe. For example, what can be easier than Saucy Asian Meatballs made with Marina’s Mini Meatballs? Simply defrost and heat up the meatballs, prepare the sauce, and throw them together. Here’s the recipe: Saucy Asian Meatballs Ingredients: • 1 pound of Marina’s Mini Meatballs • 2/3 cup hoisin sauce • ¼ cup rice vinegar • 2 garlic cloves, minced • 2 Tbsp. soy sauce • 1 tsp. sesame oil • 1 tsp. fresh ginger, grated Instructions:Read More
- Whisk together all of the sauce ingredients until blended. Warm meatballs in a 350° oven. You can dip each meatball individually (using a toothpick) in the sauce mixture. Or pour sauce over the meatballs and stir gently until covered.
- Serve warm, and add additional garnish if desired.
Stuffed Acorn squash is so good. Add the Sweet Italian Sausage and Marina's Cranberry Chutney and it is off the charts delish. Enjoy! [ ... ]Read More
As kids, a lot of us hated our vegetables—including spinach! But our parents, told us to eat it; it would make us grow up big and strong. Even the cartoons got in on the action. Who doesn’t remember Popeye the Sailor Man, his ever-present can of spinach, and the bulging biceps that saved the day? But is spinach really the muscle-growing plant it is reported to be?
