Meet Erica, she’s a Portland native, mom, butcher and cook with a deep interest in where our food, particularly meat, comes from. You’ll find her behind the counter garbed in her bright red apron and cap expertly handling the bandsaw, yielding very sharp knives with finesse, and creating gorgeous displays of fresh, organic meats.
Presentation is her jam, which you can tell with just one look at the case – perfectly portioned, fully stocked, organized and beautiful. In the biz for over 20 years, she’s got great suggestions for selecting the best cuts, cooking tips and recipe ideas!
Meaty Tip: Be adventurous, do something different and try something new each week, it may surprise you.
What to Try: One of the most flavorful and best cuts are short ribs. Braised short ribs are the best thing in the world.
Hobbies: Camping, paddle boarding, kayaking, hiking with her two dogs.
