Join Us Saturday, Nov 4, 10:00am-6:00pm at Queen Anne B & E - We're Teaming Up To Support A Great Cause -- Helping Hurricane Maria Survivors in Puerto Rico
October 19, 2017

B & E Meats and Seafood and McCarthy and Schiering Wine Merchants team up to support a great cause - helping survivors of Hurricane Maria by collecting funds and needed items to send back to islanders. Learning of the plight of a large family in rural Guayama, Puerto Rico, Owners Jeff Green and Steve Dunaychuk, along with Queen Anne store Manager, Gordy Maggs decided to step up to help. McCarthy and Schiering, a neighboring wine shop, also agreed to participate. Together the two companies will be sampling delicious bites and tasty wines donated by some wonderful vintners.

Bettina Carey, the event's organizer, a Puerto Rican who has family in Guayama, a small rural community in Puerto Rico wrote, "Imagine this, an island of palm trees and blue seas now turned into an island that looks like a war zone with uprooted trees and black water as a result of Hurricane Maria. Now imagine life under martial law, limited access to funds as banks will only allow $100 withdrawals, boiling contaminated water to bathe in and drink, 8-9 hour long lines to get fuel, limited or no cell service, no electricity, food rationing, most roads in disrepair, the list of the devastating impact of Hurricane Maria goes on and on. Months, if not years, of recovery is expected to cost billions."

Carey adds, "For weeks I have felt helpless not knowing how to help my family in Puerto Rico and having difficulty communicating with anyone on the island, but now as a result of B & E and McCarthy and Schiering my family will get the help that they so desperately need."

Turn A Summertime Grilling Favorite Into A Mouthwatering, Flavorful Dish With Simple Grilling Tips
July 10, 2017

As Seen in Seattle Dining (edited to fit blog):

We are slicing and dicing and getting ready for you to grill up your summertime favorite...Prime New York Steaks!

Just look at these BEAUTIFUL Prime New York Strips cut by none other than owner, Jeff Green.

Filmed By: Anderson Ross Productions; Edited by Kyle Green - 

Helping customers improve their knowledge about the variety and types of products that they are buying, providing simple, how-to guides to prepare tasty dishes, as well as providing a great value for the money is what B & E Meats and Seafood believe matters to their customers.

One of B & E Meats and Seafood’s most appetizing, summertime favorites includes none other than their famous Prime New York Steaks, pure, juicy beef flavor and simple to prepare. Beautifully marbled, these New York’s come from Double R Ranch, a premier beef brand from the heart of the Northwest. Owner, Jeff Green says, “Using high quality ingredients is our secret to success. We never compromise on our sources because the attention we pay to the ingredients that our customers buy, ensures that they are getting the best tasting products.”

To ensure that your steaks are prepared just to your liking, Green recommends that you follow these simple grilling tips: 

1) Salt and season your steaks early, at least one hour prior to grilling or the day before if possible. For a change, try out B & E’s flavorful, house-made Butcher’s Blend. Guests report this incredible blend of seasonings is phenomenal and can even be used on popcorn.

2) To ensure your steaks are perfect for each guest be sure to take the temperature of your steaks while grilling. (Rare – 110 degrees F, Medium Rare – 120 degrees F, Medium – 130 degrees F, Medium Well – 140, Well/No-pink – why bother). 

3) After you remove your steaks from the grill, be sure to let them rest just long enough to firm up and hold in the juices.

Green adds, “Consumer’s expectations are high these days and they look for quality, product consistency and transparency. At B & E Meats and Seafood they can count on all three.”

B & E Meats and Seafood - A Family Affair
April 23, 2017

Article by Connie Adams of Seattle Dining -

B & E Meats and Seafood

A family affair

B & E - a name that harkens back to simpler times when young men (Bob 19 at left, Earl 24) started businesses and named them after themselves. It was 1958 in Burien when there were eight meat markets in Burien alone. Times have changed, few stand-alone butcher shops remain, and many stores have meat departments. Yet B & E thrives, run by family members who treat customers like friends.

Bob's son Jeff (pictured) and his wife Trisha own the business, purchasing it from Bob and Earl in 1999. Jeff started working in the shop in 1975 when he was 14. Earl had five boys, all of whom worked there at some point. Ultimately, Jeff was the one who stuck with it. Jeff and Trisha's daughter Dena, 22, is involved now, along with two of Earl's grandsons, Kyle and Mike. "It's great to see the third generation come in," says Jeff. "Both Bob and Earl pop in sometimes. My dad was great at customer service, and I'm good, but Dena is on another level. She started working when she was 15."

Dena worked for a larger business for a short time, enough to realize she loved the family business. That's déjà vu for Jeff: a business degree at the University of Washington and the management program at Eddie Bauer. "Even as a department manager, I didn't have control of what I sold. It was a good lesson. When you run your own business, the decisions are yours, and you live with the consequences, good or bad."

The secret to their success? Better meats, great customer service, the B & E experience. "We can't be the cheapest because we're not the largest. But we can be the best. New customers can be intimidated by the variety; we want that first experience to be comfortable. We like our stores to be neighborhood gathering spots. When our employees ask about kids' soccer games, they're sincere." Jeff read restaurateur Danny Meyer's book "Setting the Table," and was struck by what Danny said. "Within moments of being born, most babies find themselves receiving the first four gifts of life: eye contact, a smile, a hug, and some food. We receive many gifts in a lifetime, but few ever surpass those first four. That first time may be the purist "hospitality" we'll ever receive, and it's no surprise that we'll crave those gifts for the rest of our lives." Every B & E employee hears this in orientation. As a customer, you'll see it: a warm welcome, kind words and, especially if you're new, a sample of smoked salmon candy or smoked jerky. "We want new customers to know our quality, and to build trust. As people talk, they sell each other on items they like. That's when we know we've done our job!"

Marinades are another specialty, made from scratch daily. "These are unique. We know if people try a marinade, they'll be back. Sometimes we'll add a few kalbi-marinated ribs with someone's order and suggest they use as an appetizer." They also marinate chicken breasts and thighs, and offer cooking instructions. "Meat can be great, but if incorrectly cooked, neither of us look good. We want the customer to look like a rock star to family and friends." If a customer buys three pounds of ground beef, they'll be asked if they want it in one package or broken up into three packages, wrapped in freezer paper, and marked as to what it is. Have a new recipe? Bring it in and let the experts help you pick the right cut of meat and give you cooking tips.

From 1958 to 1980, they sold only meat. Jeff added seafood, then smokehouses, which eventually grew larger. "Smoked meats are a big part of our business," says Jeff. Each store specializes in something that is shared with the other stores: Burien smokes beef jerky; Des Moines sausage, pepperoni, and bacon; Newcastle salmon and salmon candy. "Most of our smoked products have won awards in competitions." They dry age beef at each location, and use natural, prime-graded beef, the top 2% of beef. They offer gift cards, freezer packs, and game processing. If you have a special request, ask. If they don't have it, they can probably get it with some notice.

Burien manager Caeb with King salmon fillet

In 1999, they purchased Ranch House Meats in Des Moines, remodeling and adding all new equipment. In Burien, they bought the building at the end of the same block as their original store, adding visibility and improved parking, opening December 2004. In 2010, they partnered with North Shore Quality Produce in Federal Way, crunching into one corner of the small space, waiting for the adjacent store to open. It never did, so they moved operations into the Des Moines store. Newcastle opened in September 2013. "This was different for us. We were known in the south end, but not on the Eastside. Yet they took us in right away, and we've drawn customers from Mercer Island and Bellevue. We thought we were done growing for awhile, but then the Queen Anne location came up."

A & J Meats had been on Queen Anne since 1951, named for Al and Jerry. A son, Rick Friar, had been running it until ready to retire. Gordy, the fruit sausage maker at Queen Anne, told his brother-in-law, the GM at a B & E store, they were closing. Jeff called Rick and negotiations began. Rick is still their landlord ("the best ever-he even worked Christmas after we took over"). Gordy stayed on and continues to make the beloved fruit sausages. A & J had other items that people clamored for-meatloaf, chicken and beef pot pies, stuffed peppers-all are now offered in each B & E store.

B & E Meats and Seafood Take Home Two Northwest Cured Meat Championship Awards Just In Time for Easter
April 11, 2017

Jeff Green and Steve Dunaychuk, co-owners of B & E Meats and Seafood, takes home two wins at the Northwest Meat Processors Association Annual Northwest Cured Meat Championship Awards for beef jerky and boneless ham.

Just this last week B & E Meats and Seafood took home two championship awards for best beef jerky (whole muscle) and ham (boneless) at the Annual Northwest Cured Meat Championship Awards held by the Northwest Meat Processors Association, based out of Walla Walla, WA. Jeff Green and Steve Dunaychuk, co-owners of B & E Meats and Seafood, have brought home top awards at this annual event in the prior years for their summer sausage (Grand Champion and Best Smoked Product in the Northwest), smoked polish sausage and beef jerky. The jerky and ham were judged on their general appearance, aroma, texture of the cut surface (ham), mouth feel (jerky), inside color, flavor and edibility (jerky). Meat smoking and sausage mastery is a big part of B & E's success.

Founded in 1958 by Bob and Earl Green, who are now retired, B & E Meats and Seafood is now run by Jeff Green who is intimately involved in every detail of the business operations including concocting their secret, house-made recipes that are made daily. Together, Green and Dunaychuk, a co-owner, produce their smoked products at each of their four locations.

This year's Northwest Meat Processors Convention, held March 23-25 at Ocean Shores Convention Center, Ocean Shores, WA, included 185 entries in 15 categories. Topics included group purchasing, supply chain, specialty meat processing, panel discussion on seasonings, casings and sausage production along with a trade show and championship awards. There were about fifteen meat plants that competed in the 35 year contest.

The event was attended by Jeff Green and B & E Sausage Maker Matt Pearson. Green says, "We are so very proud of our high quality products and our great team who are true masters of the smoking and sausage craft." B & E Meats and Seafood carry cured and smoked products including jerky, salmon, meat snacks, bacon, turkey, ham and sausages. Along with these and other meat and seafood products, known as the best meat and seafood in Seattle, they also have a number of branded seasonings, sauces and rubs including their very tasty B & E "Butcher's" Blend.

With Easter fast approaching Green and Dunaychuk are preparing hundreds of award-winning hams (gourmet bone-in @$5.99/lb : spiral sliced bone-in @$6.99/lb : Phil's boneless ham @$7.99/lb), as well as their famous and mouth-watering "Prime" standing rib roast @$21.99/lb, Sheperds Pride antibiotic and hormone-free rack of lamb @$24.99/lb and smoked candied salmon @$26.99/lb to serve up to their loyal fan base. B & E even provides holiday cooking instructions and recipes that customers can access on the B & E website. 

"The Best Corned Beef This Side of Ireland" Now Available at B & E Meats and Seafood: The Green Story
March 09, 2017

Jeff Green, owner of B & E Meats and Seafood has produced 3,000 pounds of salt cured corned beef to celebrate St. Patrick's Day

After cooking your corned beef all day, your home will smell so good. Don’t eat it quickly, instead take time to sit down and enjoy the dish together with your family and friends. You’ll be glad you did!

 Seattle, WA (PRWEB) March 09, 2017

Ask most U.S. citizens and they will likely agree that there is nothing more appealing than salt cured beef to celebrate Saint Patrick's Day, except maybe a salt cured pork roast. Jeff Green, co-owner of B & E Meats and Seafood, just cured 3,000 pounds of their delicious corned beef along with some cured pork for their customers just in time for the special holiday, which lands on Friday this year. That’s one and a third tons of what he calls, “the best corned beef this side of Ireland."

B & E Meats and Seafood's special house-made recipe is nearly 60 years old. It is a recipe that was handed down by a retired butcher to Bob and Earl Green, the original founders of B & E Meats and Seafood who are now themselves retired. Their curing process is unique because instead of piling up the spices atop of the meat B & E's butchers take the time to infuse the special spices -- pepper, brown sugar, garlic, bay leaves, all spice and more -- right into the meat giving the corned beef a unique flavor profile.

If you’re wondering how to cook corned beef you need look no further, B & E Meats and Seafood have their own video outlining an easy "how to" on cooking corned beef and cabbage. Customers are advised to cook the corned beef or pork in a 1:1 ratio of apple cider to water sweetening up the carrots, cabbage and potatoes which are added towards the end of the cooking process.

Green says, “The nice thing about corned beef is that it comes in a vacuum sealed package so customers can purchase it 2-3 weeks before the holiday. In fact, it’s a good idea to order or pick up early because we often sell out.”

Corned beef is beef cured with rock or sea salt and commonly served on Saint Patrick’s Day in the U.S., but not so much in Ireland. During both World Wars corned beef was a staple ration for soldiers served in a can. It was also commonly eaten in the British Kingdom even during the potato famine, but today it is still rarely eaten in Ireland. Why you may ask?

Although the Irish produced a salted beef product throughout the Middle Ages and continue still today, the Irish for the most part export it rather than choose to eat it themselves. In fact, most Irish do not associate corned beef with Irish cuisine nor St. Paddy’s Day, as the holiday has come to be known. Instead they serve lamb because beef is still considered a luxury product in Ireland.

So whether you are Irish or not, Green (who will be wearing green on St. Patrick's Day) hopes that his customers will wear green too and stop to pick up some of his specialty corned beef or pork (@$6.99 per pound), which he makes available year-round. “After cooking your corned beef all day, your home will smell so good. Don’t eat it quickly, instead take time to sit down and enjoy the dish together with your family and friends. You’ll be glad you did,” adds Green. If you’re lucky enough you’ll have leftovers to make Reuben sandwiches or corned beef hash the next day.”
