Prior to cooking, thaw steak 1-2 days in the refrigerator. Remove from refrigerator about 1 hour before cooking and allow to come to room temperature. Generously season with salt and pepper.
Grill steak on indirect heat, turning every five minutes to cook evenly for about 20 minutes. Finish by searing over direct heat for 1-2 minutes a side. Transfer steak to cutting board, tent with foil and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
Sear steak in large ovenproof skillet (cast-iron preferred) over high heat for 1-2 minutes a side until browned. Transfer to a 400°F preheated oven and roast for about 20 minutes, flipping steak halfway through cooking. Transfer steak to cutting board, tent with foil and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
To serve, cut along length of bone to remove steak(s) and then slice crosswise. Rebuild with bone and slices for an impressive presentation.
Cooking times are based upon thawed product and are approximate, meant as a general rule. For best results we recommend using meat thermometer and cooking to internal temperature shown. Well done not recommended.
Thaw steaks on a plate in the refrigerator. Allow meat to rest at room temperature for at least 30 minutes outside of the vacuum-sealed packaging before cooking.
Cook times are approximate, based upon thawed product, cooking method, and temperature. We recommend using a meat thermometer for best results, cooking to the internal temperature shown in the chart below. Steaks will continue to cook while at rest after grilling, raising 5-10 degrees. Always allow steaks to rest 5 minutes before slicing.
Sear on direct heat for 1 minute on each side. Then, move to indirect heat, per times below.
Place pan 2-3 inches away from the broiler heat source.
Well done not recommended.
From Frozen: Preheat oven to 400°. Spray an oven-safe pan with non-stick cooking
spray. Bake frozen crab cakes for about 25 minutes, until internal temperature
From Defrosted: Defrost from frozen overnight in the refrigerator. Preheat oven to
400°. Spray an oven-safe pan with non-stick cooking spray. Bake crab cakes for about
20 minutes, until internal temperature reaches 165°.
From Defrosted: Put about 1 TBS of oil per crab cake in a pan and preheat over
low-medium heat. (We recommend soy, corn, canola, or safflower oil. Do not use olive
or peanut oil.) Sauté about 10 minutes per side until internal temperature reaches
165°. Try not to flip the crab cakes too often to avoid breaking.
Prior to cooking, thaw ribs for 1-2 days in the refrigerator. Once thawed, rinse
with water and pat dry. For best results, remove the membrane prior to seasoning.
After ideal internal temperature is reached, allow meat to rest at room temperature
Cooking times may vary.

For best results, thaw meat in refrigerator before cooking. Let chops rest 5 minutes before serving.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In an oven-proof, heavy-bottomed pan, heat 2 TBS
olive oil over high heat until hot but not smoking. Season with salt and pepper, then
sear chops in the pan until browned, about 1 minute per side. Transfer pan to oven
and roast about 4-5 inches away from the heat source until the meat reaches desired
internal temperature. Flip chops halfway through cooking.
Grill over direct, medium high heat per the times listed below for desired
doneness. Flip chops halfway through cooking.
Thaw chops in refrigerator the night before for best results. Broil, pan sear, or grill over
direct heat. Let rest 3 to 5 minutes before serving.
If flare-ups occur on grill, move the chops temporarily over indirect heat.
Thaw rack in refrigerator the night before for best results. Roast rack 10 minutes at 450°,
then cover lamb loosely with foil and roast at 300° until thermometer inserted diagonally
into thickest part of rack registers desired doneness. Let stand, covered, 10 minutes.
Thawing Instructions: Place lobster into pan of ice and water, making sure it's
completely covered. Place pan in refrigerator or cooler overnight or until thawed. Keep
in ice-cold water until ready to cook. Remove outer packaging. Don’t allow lobster to
remain at room temperature for more than a few minutes.
Boiling Instructions: Only boil after thawed. Never cook frozen. Drop tails into boiling
water. After water returns to a rapid boil, begin to time cooking for 11 minutes. Time is
approximate. Lobster is cooked when it’s no longer transparent. When tails are done,
drain and run under cold water. Snap the tail fins off and use finger to push meat
through the shell and out the larger end. Tails can be served either hot or cold.
Grilling/Broiling Instructions: Pour melted butter and lemon juice directly on the
meat. Grill with cut side facing up, at medium-high heat – or broil on low until done.
Lobster is cooked when it’s no longer transparent.
Fully defrost the roast in the refrigerator overnight. Remove from refrigerator about 2
hours before cooking and allow to come to room temperature before placing in the
oven. Rinse and pat dry before seasoning. Remove paper from the top and inside of
roast, but leave string webbing on during cooking. Heat oven to 450° and roast for 15
Reduce heat to 350° and continue to roast until desired internal temperature
is reached. USDA recommends a minimum temperature of 145°. Place thermometer
between bones, into thickest part of meat to receive accurate measurements. When
temperature is reached, remove roast from oven and allow to rest 10-15 minutes and
remove string webbing before carving.
All cook times are estimates. Well done not recommended.
Thawing Instructions: Thaw the roast in a refrigerator overnight in the original packaging. Remove the thawed
roast from the refrigerator and remove the packaging. Let sit for 30 minutes before
starting the roasting process.
