We have a wonderful quaint specialty butcher shop here in
! The name of it is Orchard Prime Meats, located on Cary Main Street. They have a huge variety of prime meats to choose from.
Their fresh cut steaks are the absolute best with their stuffed pork chops coming in close but, one of their unique, tasty items is Chicken
. In fact, they say it is their biggest seller and I know why after eating it. It is so very savory delicious and the aroma as it bakes in the oven is to die for, I’m not kidding! It fills the house with the best garlic aroma you can imagine. The chicken breasts are pounded flat and seasoned with garlic and panko bread crumbs and whatever else, I don’t know as they won’t give me the recipe for it. That’s OK though! It keeps us going back for more and checking out their new creations. Dijon
Orchard Prime Meats also has delectable cold cuts and cheeses. Then there is the wine ~ the shop is filled with a plethora of varieties of it and they have wine tastings to help you decide which one meets your criteria.
Bill does most of the shopping there. He is not much for grocery store shopping but loves his trip to Orchard Prime Meats at least once a week. And then at holiday time, he especially enjoys buying the goose, ducks and fresh, delectable oysters there for dinner. Bubba doesn’t live in Cary but, he too shops there often for the Chicken Dijon, Cajun Pork Chops and he really craves their jerky.
Orchard Prime Meats is a high quality market with the customer appreciating their personal service and advice on the best way of cooking the delicious meat while enjoying a friendly atmosphere in the shop. It’s just a superb meat shop I wanted to tell you about with the best of butchers and I wish you all were able to visit. No doubt in my mind that they couldn’t deliver whatever type of meat you’re shopping for!
The other day, Bill picked up some Spicy Calabrese Sausage. It is a great spicy sausage filled with some delicious flavors, packed with heat. The red peppers are a perfect accompaniment with the spicy sausage served on rice. Here’s hoping this sausage is available where you live, if not you will just have to take a trip to Orchard Prime Meats. And, if you do, be sure to get their stuffed mushrooms ~ savory delicious!
