Are you socializing with us?

Did you know that every single day that our shop on Madison Avenue in Manhattan is open, there is a Lobel family member there cutting meat? The shop is never open without a Lobel behind the butcher block.

Why? Because we take pride in our product—it is our family name after all—and because we want to stay connected with our customers. There is something to say for being able to look our customer in the eye as we hand them a package of freshly cut steaks. (more…)

Sweet Ideas for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day only comes once a year—making it the perfect excuse to indulge in delicious treats! Whether you stick with traditional staples or try a new recipe, no Valentine’s Day menu would be complete without a few delicious desserts.



Pigskin party? Bring on the bacon!

This is the time of year when it seems that parties abound. Between Thanksgiving and Super Sunday, there are family parties, holiday gatherings, new year celebrations, play-off festivities, and so on. We’re always in need of quick, easy, and delicious party foods to keep the crowds of friends and family happy.

When it comes to a football party, casual and bite-size are two of the main requirements. The third main requirement? The menu must include bacon, of course.

Just Desserts: Traditional Thanksgiving Pies

When it comes to dessert on Thanksgiving Day, everyone has his or her favorite type of pie. You start eying the sweet treats before dinner and strategize which flavor (or flavors!) you will save room for.

And while less traditional pies such as chocolate, coconut cream, blueberry, raspberry, and lemon chiffon—even cheesecake and crostada—are enjoyed on Thanksgiving, four traditional standards still take center-stage when it comes to Thanksgiving desserts: pumpkin, apple, mincemeat, and pecan.



Culinary Classic: Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes are just fine when simply and classically prepared for the purists among us. However, you can take them off the chart by combining them with some tempting add-ins and just a tad more effort.

Gravy: The Crowning Touch

Nowadays, you can cook a turkey just about any way you want. We have the technology and equipment readily at our disposal, from traditional roasting—radiant or convection—to smoking, deep-frying, and even boiling.

But, if your goal is to bathe just about everything on your Thanksgiving dinner plate with a silky rich, light-brown layer of homemade turkey gravy, then you need to narrow your choices and follow tradition: oven-roast the turkey. As a side benefit, your home will fill with the signature aromas of our annual Thanksgiving traditions.

Roasting—particularly roasting a stuffed turkey—melds the varying flavor components of seasonings on and within the turkey and captures them for transformation into the nectar of Thanksgiving dinner.

Pork Belly: Getting Back on the Source

Pork belly has been making a bigger blip on the culinary radar in recent months. It’s on menus, in magazine recipes, cooking shows, YouTube videos. The ideas abound. In fact, pork belly is the #1 most-requested product from Lobel’s of New York customers and site visitors.

So, we are very pleased to introduce Lobel’s Berkshire Pork Belly, available in frozen 2-pound slabs.

Given the wild popularity, nay, obsession, fascination, and hype about everything that fuels our craving for bacon, is it any wonder that curious epicureans have discovered, or rediscovered, the joys of fresh pork belly.

After all, bacon is simply pork belly that has been cured and/or smoked.


Ask the Butcher: Favorites for Fall

We’ve asked the Lobel family what their favorite fall ingredients are for cooking at home.
