I spent the past month cooking a selection of Certified Angus steak dishes at home. Richmond-based Intercity Packers wholesalers now offers a Home Delivery service providing their restaurant quality bundles of seafood, steaks and produce. This is a great idea for all home cooks especially now when many are homebound due to the covid19 pandemic.
Intercity Packers, BC’s only fully integrated supplier of custom-cut meat and seafood has been pivoted to a new sales channel to keep product moving and their employees working. Customers are able to select curbside free pickup from Intercity Packer’s location at Number 6 Road in Richmond, or contactless, refrigerated home delivery throughout Greater Vancouver and the Fraser Valley.
Cooked up some dishes at home with a selection of steaks from the Steak Holder bundle, here are the three recipes for the dishes we made.
Broiled Tenderloin Steak
Here is the recipe that I used to make the steaks in this dish.
Broiled Tenderloin Steak with mashed New Potatoes with lemon and lots of olive oil and salad
For this dish followed this recipe found here.
Sirloin Steaks with Garlicky Swiss Chard with French fingerling potatoes
I used a few different recipes for this dish with a couple modifications along the way. Here is the recipe for the steaks and here is the recipe for the fries, and then made our own modified version of the Chimichurri sauce from this recipe.
Canadian Steak Poutine
Every purchase of their Butcher Bundles puts $5 in the Intercity Tip Jar, which donates 100% of its funds to its program partners, including the Vancouver Aquarium, the Vancouver Food Bank and the Vancouver Food & Beverage Community Relief Fund, which distributes funds to food & beverage workers impacted by COVID-19 who require urgent financial relief.
Steak, poultry, seafood, fresh produce and more items are available in variety packs, such as “The Grill Master” or “The Breakfast Boss,” which are perfect for those who would like to release their inner chef and challenge themselves with new ingredients. Larger pack sizes for single items are also available, similar to what a chef would order and at wholesale prices.
