A Memorable Mother's Day Dinner with Snake River Farms

With Mother's Day right around the corner, it's time to start thinking about that special holiday dinner! Across the country this year, families will be honoring their mothers with exquisite dinners and shared memories. I have found the perfect Mother's Day dinner solution - Snake River Farms Mother's Day Gifts. They've put together a variety of mouthwatering meat packages that include Kurobuta pork, American Kobe or Northwest beef. This is totally the way to show mom how extraordinary she is, all at the ease of home! We're talking a homemade meal that includes the same remarkable meats that are coveted by award-winning chefs and served at high-end restaurants such as The French Laundry, Per Se, CUT and Craft Steak - just to name a few. These aren't inexpensive meats, they are considered the best beef and pork that you can buy! Don't worry about shipping, I've got a free shipping code for you at the end of the this post - but first I want to share why I think Snake River Farms is perfect for Mother's Day dinner...

First of all, it gets delivered to your doorstep. I am sure you are as busy as everyone else I know - so how awesome is it to have Mother's Day dinner delivered to your house?!? The meats are shipped in a styrofoam ice chest along with dry ice - both the American Kobe Filet Mignon steaks and Kurobuta 1/2 Boneless Deli Ham were still frozen solid when I received my package in the mail. Everything was individually wrapped, perfect for placing in the freezer until ready to thaw!

Although I was first intimidated by the thought of cooking such high end meat - the instructions in the included Preparation Guide gave me the courage I needed to press forward. From defrosting the meat & cooking temperatures to tips on determining doneness and storing, it's all included in that fabulous preparation guide. If I could stress anything here, it's to not be worried about messing this meal up - the prep guide is your friend and will help you prepare this meat of a lifetime!

The Snake River Farms Kurobuta 1/2 Boneless Deli Ham is to be cooked in a roasting pan - I ended up using a corningware roasting pan that I got from my Mom. Totally perfect and fitting for this holiday meal!

I lightly sprinkled the American Kobe Filet Mignon steaks with the Fusion Espresso Brava Sea Salt that came with the Snake River Farms Super Mom Mother's Day Gift package. It's exactly what it's called - a fusion of sea salt and espresso. Oh me, oh my - where in the world have you been all of my life? The steaks are amazing on their own, this salt just took them to the next level!!

The Snake River Farms American Kobe Filet Mignon steaks feature a buttery texture, complex flavors, subtle sweetness and a lingering finish. Each filet mignon is hand-cut, hand-trimmed and perfectly portioned. The steaks will be unlike any you’ve ever made at home - they are flavorful, tender and amazingly marbled. This was my first time trying Wagyu beef and I was blown away by the flavor and tenderness - I totally get what the big deal is now!!

This Kurobuta pork is considered to be equal in status to “Kobe Beef.” Snake River Farms uses only 100% purebred Berkshire hogs as mandated by the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture. The ham will be the best ham you’ve ever had! It’s not salty or watery like grocery store hams and it's a cinch to prepare and cut. I usually smother my hams with chili sauce, brown sugar and pineapple before baking - but I went ahead and tried the Kurobuta pork as-is, with no ingredients added. I was so pleased with the results! So succulent and flavorful!!!

I love the idea of celebrating Mom with a special Mother's Day Dinner! Not only do all the moms not have to cook - they get to enjoy top of the line meat, prepared by their favorite child.{you!} Even if you don't live near your mom, let me tell you - she will feel the Mother's Day love if you send her a Snake River Farms Mother's Day Gift. This year, go above and beyond and make her an American Kobe steak and Kurobuta ham dinner that she’ll never forget!!
