The Co-op meat department’s new ready-to-go fixings make it easier than ever to get a healthy, hearty, and irresistibly delicious dinner on the table! There’s no skimping on ingredients in these tasty entrees. Everything is made in accordance with the meat department’s quality guarantee using favorite cuts from Organic Smart Chicken, Oregon Country Beef, and Beeler’s Pure Pork.
In addition, we’ve partnered with local favorite The Spice Hut to amp up the flavor with their fresh, authentic (and mostly organic) spice blends, and we use the best organic produce in our kabobs.
Moroccan Chicken Kabob
Spice Hut’s perfectly balanced Organic Moroccan Blend on boneless, skinless chicken breast with red peppers, red onions, and zucchini. Serve with a simple salad and naan. Enjoy the kabobs with a squeeze of lemon and a garlicky yogurt sauce.
Memphis BBQ Chicken or Pork Chops
Our Memphis BBQ is flavored with Spice Hut’s classic dry-rub with a cayenne and paprika kick. Pairs well with baked potatoes, corn on the cob, and Co-op Deli Potato Salad.
