Mother's Day Brunch at The Organic Butcher
Skip the wait at restaurants this Mother's Day Brunch and cook the Mom in your life this deservingly decadent yet surprisingly simple Eggs Chesapeake recipe. We used Joshua Delgado’s recipe and made it a little easier for you!  Photo: Iain Bagwell; Styling: Nissa Quanstrom Step 1 – Buy a pre-made Crab Cake from The Organic Butcher. Pro-tip – 1 crab cake is enough for 2 Eggs Chesapeake! Step 2 - Heat butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Split the crab cake in half and shape into a disk. Cook crab cakes, turning only once, until dark golden brown on both sides,3-4 minutes per side. Transfer to an oven-safe dish and put in a 200° oven to keep warm. Step 3 – While the crab cakes are cooking get started on poaching the eggs. Bring a large, deep frying pan of lightly salted water to a boil. Reduce heat to maintain a low simmer. Crack 1 egg into a glass measuring cup, hold spout close to water's surface, and let egg slip gently into water. Repeat with rest of eggs. Cook until eggs are softly set, 2 to 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer as done to a large bowl of ice and cold water.  Step 4 – Make the Hollandaise by following this super simple Blender Hollandaise Sauce Recipe. Step 5 – Plating! Place a crab cake on each plate and slip a poached egg on top. Spoon about 1 ½ TBSP of the hollandaise sauce on top. Sprinkle with our local & organic chives. You can also spoon on some caviar or fresh Maryland lump crab meat for some extra decadence because Mom deserves it!

Top Sirloin Roast Recipe - An Easy and Impressive Roast for The Holidays!
This recipe features the Top Sirloin Roast which is available on our Holiday Menu. This cut is tender and has rich beefy flavor.   We've paired the roast with Fingerling Potatoes & Shallots seasoned with Salt & Pepper and topped with Iberico Lardo slices as well as Brussels Sprouts & Carrots drizzled with Honey, Olive Oil, Salt & Pepper.  Plate these veggies then lay the sliced Top Sirloin over top.  ______________________________________________________   Ingredients: Top Sirloin Roast - ask us to season & tie it for you!  Extra Virgin Olive Oil Butcher Shop Steak Rub Fingerling Potatoes Shallots Sliced Iberico Lardo Brussels Sprouts Carrots Honey or Hot Honey *All ingredients available for purchase at the shop!*   Instructions: Pre-Heat oven to 350 degrees and bring roast to room temperature. Roast the season and tied Top Sirloin uncovered for 45-60 minutes or until internal temp reaches 130-135 degrees. Let rest under loosely tented foil for 20-30 minutes before slicing the roast. While the roast is cooking prep the potatoes by cutting them 1/4" thick and thinly slice the shallots. Season with salt & pepper and lay flat in a roasting pan. Lay the slices of Iberico Lardo overtop. Put these in the oven when the roast is about half-way through and cook the potatoes for 25-30 minutes or until done. The  Lardo crisps up during the cook, save these cracklings to use as the garnish! Lastly, cut the brussels sprouts & carrots to desired size. Drizzle honey or hot honey for an extra kick, olive oil, salt & pepper. Put these in when the top sirloin roast is almost done and roast for 15-20 minutes or until they're nicely caramelized. Plate the veggies together and lay the slices of sirloin and Iberico cracklings over top for an impressive and delicious presentation!
