Dear John, 
It is hard to believe that the first month of the year is almost finished.  We have been busy consolidating the many elements of our business under our new roof.  Have to say ... it is nice to have the gang together in one place. 

Did you miss out?  Last Friday we hosted a Breakfast Sampler Package giveaway on our Instagram page.  We hope you will JOIN US and then you too can follow along as we chronicle life at US Wellness and host the occasional surprise giveaway as well. 

We have a new item for our store Free Range Organic Ground Turkey compliments of the Diestel family.  Pure ground white meat turkey that is 98% lean, organic, non-gmo, with no additives or skin !!!  Can't get much better than this.  Our supplier of Bison is being overrun by demand for Bison Stew Meat ... so this week's restock is the last batch for a while.  So get yours before it's gone. 

Sale items for the week include Hickory Smoked Beef Back Ribs and Chicken Wings both of which make great Super Bowl eats.  Other sale items include Beef Pet Burger, Boneless Short Ribs, and Beef Pemmican Bar

Restocks so far this week include several of our Bison products, along with Boneless Pork Chops, Pork Breakfast Sausage, Pork Tenderloin, Beef Bacon, and two items that make great treats for your upcoming Super Bowl Party Beef Italian Sausage, and Beef Polish Sausage.

SNEAK PEEK  ... Due to the busyness of the new building last year, it has been several months since we last spotlighted a chef on our website.  Well, the wait is over, because in February we are bringing back the very popular FEATURED CHEF to our website.  So stay tuned to find out who our Featured Chefs will be. 

Take advantage of the sale on boneless beef short ribs and try Russ Crandall's recipe for Miso-Marinated Boneless Short Ribs.

Finally we know it can be confusing determining what is healthy when it comes to consuming fats.  This week's Science Daily article helps clarify the issue with information from researchers at Tufts University who are advocating for changes to the US Dietary Guidelines when it comes to Total Fat Intake.  

Cheerful Wintry Regards,

John, Lee Ann, Tressa, Laura, Deric, and Courtney on behalf of the farm families of US Wellness Meats.

Customer Feedback
Boneless Beef Short Ribs
(on sale this week!)

"Definitely buying again" 

"I bought 4 lbs of these to make Christmas dinner and was completely happy with what I received.  They had excellent fat distribution and required very little trimming.  What was on the inside easily cooked out after 7 hours of low temp braising.  Much better than the short ribs available at stores locally!"

Miso-Marinated Boneless Short Ribs
Miso-Marinated Boneless Short Ribs
Miso-Marinated Boneless Short Ribs 
Author: The Domestic Man
Time: 1 hour 20 minutes, plus time to marinate
Difficulty: Easy (Primal, Gluten-Free, Perfect Health Diet)
Serves: 4

  •  3 tbsp miso paste
  • 2 tbsp mirin
  • 1 tbsp sake or other white wine (if none available, use 1 additional tbsp of mirin)
  • 1/4 tsp ground white pepper
  • 2-3 lbs boneless short ribs  
  • chives to garnish
  1. Combine the miso paste, mirin, sake, and white pepper in a small bowl.
  2. Pat the short ribs dry with some paper towels, then liberally spread the miso mixture over the ribs; transfer to a resealable plastic bag and marinate for at least 4 hours, overnight preferred. Can be marinated for up to 48 hours.
  3. Preheat your oven to 225F. Line a baking sheet with tin foil, then cover the foil with a wire rack. Place the short ribs on the wire rack, fatty side up, leaving a few inches of space between them to allow air to circulate. Bake until they reach an internal temperature of 125F for rare short ribs, or 130F for medium-rare short ribs, about 1 hour. (To assist in checking the temperature, I use a bluetooth-enabled oven thermometer; a quick-read thermometer will work fine, just check it every 5-10 minutes after 40 minutes.) 
  4. Remove the sheet of short ribs from the oven and increase the temperature to 500F; loosely cover the ribs with foil as the oven heats. Once the oven comes to temperature, switch it to "broil" and place the ribs in the oven. Broil until the tops crisp and start to blacken, about 2 minutes, then remove from the oven. Allow to rest for 5 minutes, then slice and serve garnished with chives.

    ** Sake is readily available in most liquor stores, often in small bottles that are perfect for cooking. Buy one that you'll enjoy drinking; just be sure to reserve 1 tbsp for this recipe!     __________________________________________________
