Ryan's Grocery for CNY Steamboat

By Wednesday, January 25, 2017 , ,

Ryan’s Grocery, a specialty gluten-free grocer and organic butchery, makes preparing for your Chinese New Year essential steamboat feast hassle-free (and healthier!), by offering a selection of Shabu-Shabu sets, imported organic meats and wild caught seafood. 
Ryan’s Grocery offers a selection of handmade, gluten free, organic meat ball platters ($11.80/12 pieces). Choose from hormone free chicken, juicy and flavorful beef balls made from Blackwood Valley Black Angus beef or my personal favorite- the moist Borrowdale pork balls with extra texture and crunch from the water chestnut. I could have had a dozen by myself!
Fans of pork will go crazy over the selection of free-range Borrowdale pork available in a variety of cuts, including the collar, loin and fatty belly. These lucky hogs are raised in a stress-free environment, being allowed to freely roam, play in the mud and apparently even fed strawberries! The meat is not further processed, resulting in natural flavors. We especially love the fatty pork belly, which melts in your mouth after a quick dip in the soup.
Bovine lovers will love the Black Angus beef from Blackwood Valley in the countryside of Western Australia. Exclusively grass-fed, and devoid of growth hormones and antibiotics, these lucky animals live longer than other farm bred cattle, allowing their natural flavors to develop and mature. The meat was tender, with just the right amount of fat, and was excellent with the Great Southern Truffle Mustard!
If you prefer a stronger flavored meat, go for the Thomas Farms lamb platter. The open, lush, green pastureland of Australia provides the optimal conditions to raise quality lamb. You can actually taste the difference, as the meat was rich tasting but the gaminess was not overpowering. 
No steamboat feast is complete without seafood, and Ryan’s Grocery also carries wild caught frozen seafood including sea scallops from the USA which were excellent just lightly blanched. They also have shelled organic tiger prawns, which are firmly textured and really sweet (doubly so if you include the fact that no peeling is required!). 
Add sweetness and earthy flavors to your steamboat broth with locally grown organic vegetables including fresh shiitake mushrooms and black fungus, available in specially designed vegetable platters. 
Ryan’s Grocery Lunar New Year offerings are available till 15 Feb. Head over to their online store at for their full catalog and details!
