Staying at home this Mother’s Day doesn’t have to keep us from treating Mom to a gourmet, healthy meal.
They say the way to a person’s heart is their stomach, and Mom is no different. But with stay-at-home orders abounding, you can’t take Mom to her favorite restaurant this year like you usually do. Instead, surprise her with a restaurant-quality meal prepared with organic, high quality proteins. Depending on your situation, this could mean serving the meal in your dining room, dropping it off with your own form of “contactless delivery” or sending a special gift to Mom’s doorstep. Regardless, Greensbury has numerous recipes and options available to help you honor someone special.
At Greensbury, we’ve pulled some of our reader’s favorite recipes for any level of cooking experience. So, whether you’ve been cooking for decades or have recently learned the difference between boiling and broiling, we have simple, restaurant-quality recipes made with our organic meats and wild caught seafood to create a memorable occasion.
Option 1: Keep it Simple
Mother’s Day is about spoiling Mom by making her day special with some of her favorite indulgences and often includes handling the chores for the day to make her work light. When choosing the meal to prepare, select something simple with just a few ingredients. You don’t have to spend hours in the kitchen to make a gourmet meal. With prime ingredients and a good, tried and true recipe, you can create a decadent dish without the labor.
The first two recipes we’re sharing have minimal prep and minimal cleanup. Our CEO Ted Hopper’s Grilled Lamb Chops Recipe is an Easter favorite and also a great choice for Mother’s Day. With just a few herbs and seasonings, the antibiotic-free lamb chops can be made in a grill pan or on the grill in a matter of minutes and cleanup is a breeze. Another recipe with simplicity in mind is Pan Seared Marinated Organic Top Sirloin Steaks. The marinade can be made ahead of time and actual cook time is only about 3-5 minutes per side. This recipe can be made with either organic grass-fed top sirloin steaks or organic grass-fed skirt steak. Serve with a simple salad and special dessert to round out the meal.
Option 2: Dress up the Pork Loin
If you’re more experienced in the kitchen and don’t mind some additional preparation and clean-up, we have some special selections to treat Mom’s palate. Two of our top organic boneless pork loin roast recipes are great choices to serve this Mother’s Day. The first is a ham inspired (but with fewer calories) Cider-brined, Mustard-Glazed Pork Loin adapted from Rhoda Boone’s recipe. Treat Mom’s senses with brown sugar, maple syrup, and apple cider. If you love the combination of sweet and savory, try this Bacon Wrapped Pork Roast With Peach Sauce recipe. This top-20 reader favorite came to us from Naked Wines. Head over to Naked Wines to choose the perfect wine to pair with either of these recipes. What's not to love about bacon? In this recipe, the bacon not only adds flavor, but also bastes the organic boneless pork loin roast as it’s cooking. Mmmm….bacon basted pork. And, if that’s not enough, the pork is rubbed with a salt-sugar mixture to give it even more juiciness and a beautifully browned crust. Try our nitrate and nitrite free organic applewood smoked bacon that comes from a Certified Humane farm in Vermont. The finishing touch in this recipe is the peach sauce drizzled over each piece.
Option 3: Send the Gift of Healthy Proteins from the Comfort of Home
If the special mom in your life isn’t living under the same roof or close enough to drop off a meal, send her something special from Greensbury. You can send a one-time gift, or remind Mom routinely that you’re her favorite by setting up subscription delivery on any monthly or weekly schedule you choose. This not only gives the gift of healthy, quality meats and seafoods, but also the gift of time by saving time meal planning and going to the grocery store. Choose a product like wild Atlantic sea scallops that can be easily portioned and quickly prepared by pan searing or grilling, or a product like our whole organic free-range chicken or organic whole turkey* that can be used to create multiple meals. Subscribe your loved one to their favorite proteins and save an additional 5% off your order.
Greensbury would like to extend our appreciation to all moms this Mother’s Day! Thank you!
