Wagyu Chopped Cheese
Formed during the pandemic by Brooklyn natives Sib, Midi & Jordan, Shmackwich began as a pop up concept serving only Wagyu Chopped Cheese — a ground beef sandwich made on a grill. Chef Sib's version features heritage Wagyu beef, cheese, roasted tomato aioli, spice mix, lettuce, and tomato on a freshly baked baguette.

Wagyu Smash Burgers
In the 20 years we've been slinging Heritage burgers, we've come to learn that our bold and beefy half-pound Wagyu beef patties are more than a top-notch show-piece layered between a bun. We love seeing them divided to make these smaller amazingly delicious smash burgers. It's a grind that is as good as a standing ribeye roast, but beef that can be incorporated into everyday meals.

Brined Boston Butt Shoulder Steaks with 'Nduja and Honey
The classic combination of Calabrian chili and honey turns this quick meal into a show-stopper. These thin-cut boston butt steaks sear up beautifully, and the addition of Tempesta Artisan's sweet and spicy 'nduja quickly melted on top with honey adds a kick of flavor and complexity.

Fennel & Coriander Crusted Strip Steak
Confession: I don’t like to do much to my steaks. Good meat doesn’t need it. Over the years, I have even started to forgo adding pepper to them. But we have to shed our comfort zone sometimes, so out came the black pepper along with toasted coriander and fennel, which I have been playing with a lot of late. What we got was one hell of a crust: fragrant, smokey, with a hint of spice. Finish with garlicky pan juices, some lemon zest, fresh chopped thyme and the gentlest squirt of lemon juice to cut the fat.

Turkey Smash Burgers
I love smashburgers, their easy to consume patties, the large blanket of well-seared crust, the yellow cheese that burns a little because the patty is so thin that when a slice melts it’ll inevitably touch the pan.
For years, I didn’t consider anything other than beef the meat one uses for a burger. But we grow older, and our absolutes become less absolute, and then all of sudden you’re letting other meats into your burger arsenal. Even writing that last sentence was hard.

How to Master the Double Cut Tomahawk Chop : An Epic Tale of Pork Chop Wonder
The double cut tomahawk chop looks like something cut by God’s own butcher — it is as powerful a presentation as it is elegant, the kind of thing that makes meat lovers genuflect with love even as they wonder how to cook the darn thing. It’s over two inches thick and it takes some secret knowledge to nail it at a perfect medium while getting all the flavor, juice and texture out of the chop without incineration the outside, without having to go lower slower… the finished product must be seared to perfection, and when cut open, be as pretty and pink as any thing ever to grace your plate.
