GSI Deluxe Bacon

Thick strips of bacon on a plate... what's better than that divine smell in the morning?

Breakfast: the most important meal of the day. In our busy lives, we rarely have time for a decent breakfast anymore, but once you wake up to the wonderful smell of Gourmet Secrets’ deluxe bacon throughout the house, you’ll never want to skip it again! Our bacon from 100% free range pork is deluxe trim, double maple and big on taste, always a treat to have around whether it’s for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Bacon is usually made from pork belly cured in brine or dry salt for many hours, then smoked and sliced into thick strips that produce the streaky bacon we know and love. Bacon is often enjoyed beside eggs, potatoes and toast and is very popular as a sandwich meat, being a key ingredient in the preparation of a BLT. If you prefer something greener and healthier, cook up your bacon until crispy, chop it up into small chunks or bits, and use it as a garnish for your salad! Often very popular in dressings and sauces when rendered into tiny bits, you can make your own bacon ranch dressing by simply combining mayonnaise, white vinegar, parsley and bacon bits! Bacon also features as a garnish for many of our products, whether it is wrapped around our filet mignon, chicken breasts or scallops, or stuffed into our premade baked potatoes. Why not try Gourmet Secrets’ deluxe bacon in your own dishes?

If you love bacon, don’t settle for anything less than the best. Get some of Gourmet Secrets’ Deluxe Bacon Strips today at http://www.gourmetsecrets.ca!

GSI Baby Back Ribs

baby back ribs

Tender, juicy, smoky, fall-off-the-bone… that’s what the perfect rack of barbecued baby back ribs is all about. Gourmet Secrets gives you the best, free range pork with no hormones or inorganic feed additives, so all you get is great pork flavor and baby back ribs that are succulent and juicy!

Why are pork ribs so popular? Well, bone-in meat like ribs have a distinctly different taste than boneless meat due to the bone’s own juices cooking with the meat. The bone also brings heat to the center of the meat, making it cook more evenly. Baby back ribs, so named because they come from market-size hogs that are smaller than fully-grown hogs, are some of the most popular cuts of pork in North America, especially in the South where they are smoked, barbecued, grilled and braised to perfection with a good basting of homemade barbecue sauce. A full rack usually contains 10 to 13 back ribs, but will always have a minimum of 8. Gourmet Secrets’ Baby Back Ribs are split into half racks for perfect portion controlling, and once you cook them, you’ll be blown away by how tender they become.

When you order GSI Baby Back Ribs, you are getting the best barbecue experience you can buy in Canada. Fire up that grill and serve yourself some baby back ribs this summer: go to http://www.gourmetsecrets.ca today and get your order just in time for Canada Day!

The Gourmet Secrets Difference: Poultry

A variety of poultry products offered by Gourmet Secrets Inc., free range and fed with only natural ingredients!

Free Range Boneless Chicken Breasts, Homestyle Chicken Pot Pie, Chicken Souvlaki Kabobs, Free Range Turkey Breasts, Gourmet Secrets Deluxe Chicken Fingers, Chicken Cordon Bleu

Chicken is a big part of many Canadians’ diet. Tasty and juicy, poultry is a healthy and versatile choice for your every day meals. For years, our customers have made our Boneless Chicken Breasts and our Deluxe Chicken Fingers a healthy staple in their diets, and they keep coming back for more. So what makes Gourmet Secrets’ poultry different from what you can get at the grocery store?

Two words: free range. Like all our meat selections, Gourmet Secrets chickens roam free, in the outdoors, allowing them to exercise and walk around with no constrictions or confines. Their feed is also free of inorganic additives, antibiotics and hormones, allowing them to grow at a natural pace and ensuring that the chicken you then eat is 100% natural and healthy for you. Every piece of poultry is cut by hand at our federally-inspected processing plant, flash-frozen immediately to lock in all the juices, then packaged and readied for your order! There are no extraneous treatments such as brine baths, water injections or anything that alters the natural quality and texture of Gourmet Secrets chicken: every bite is juicy, tender and delicious!

When you order Gourmet Secrets poultry products, you also get convenience: individually-frozen portions that you can prepare at your leisure. You’re in no rush to use up your chicken breasts because every single piece is individually vacuum-packed, which drastically lowers the chance of freezer burn. And our prepared chicken products such as our Chicken Cordon Bleu and Homestyle Chicken Pot Pie are so easy to make: just heat up the oven and pop it in for a delicious, quality meal!

So why not get some chicken from Gourmet Secrets today? Taste the difference that free-range, natural chicken gives you!

Gourmet Secrets prides itself on the very best in gourmet meats and seafood. It’s at the center of our concept, and nowhere is this more apparent than with the beef products we provide every day for our customers. From tender and juicy Bacon-Wrapped Filet Mignon to Extra Lean Beef Cubes, from Celiac-Friendly Angus Steak Patties to Beef Prime Rib Roast, all Gourmet Secrets beef products follow the highest standards of quality, so you can enjoy the best at great value.

Gourmet Secrets’ beef is free range, which means it’s out to pasture. The difference is the breadth of roaming: most cattle are kept in smaller, high-density, muddy enclosures with little to no grass growing, fed corn, soy and other grains with a metal trough. Gourmet Secrets’ beef, on the other hand, roams free in wide, open and grassy pastures, grazing naturally and enjoying as much space as it needs. The method of feeding Gourmet Secrets beef combines the best of both worlds: grass-feeding for their development and growth, and a light grain finish to grant it that extra marbling that gives it its AAA rating- all without inorganic additives, antibiotics or hormones. This makes for a healthy choice meat that is 100% natural and 100% beef. Our beef is then dry-aged for 21 to 28 days, a process which concentrates beef flavor in the cuts and makes it even more tender than before by breaking down tough connective tissue. This process makes for a higher-quality cut than what can be found at most supermarkets- in fact, the most renowned steakhouses and restaurants in the world demand only beef aged in this fashion!

When you order from Gourmet Secrets, you get free-range, grass-fed, grain-finished beef, free of chemicals and hormones, aged 21 to 28 days then flash-frozen, vacuum-sealed and immediately packed with your order. When it arrives to your doorstep, these tender, juicy and beefy cuts are ready for the grill, stew, casserole or whatever you want- all for $3.99 or less per serving! So what are you waiting for? Experience the difference of Gourmet Secrets beef today!

For your health!

In this day and age, it’s more important than ever for consumers to be vigilant about what they buy, especially when it comes to their food. Not even two months ago, the Mother Nature Network published an article detailing common “counterfeit foods”- that is, foods that are labelled as something they are not, a list that includes olive oil, blueberries, and even milk and fish. And the World Cancer Research Fund recently completed a review of over 7,000 different research articles looking at links between diet and cancer, and came to a startling conclusion: meats that are heavily-processed in order to improve their color are too dangerous for human consumption!

In light of all this, what makes shopping at Gourmet Secrets a better choice for your health?

Gourmet Secrets products always contain exactly what the label says. Our high quality standards guarantee that no fillers, thinners or substitutes are used in our products. We take special care with our fish products, which are at highest risk of being passed off as different species entirely, to make sure that the name matches the fish. This ensures that you get exactly what you pay for when you purchase from Gourmet Secrets.

In addition, Gourmet Secrets products are 100% natural: in particular, our selection of meats and seafood is raised in a natural environment with room for movement and growth, and guaranteed to be free of inorganic feed supplements, additives to enhance color or hormones. Our wild fish is exactly that: wild-caught and immediately flash-frozen to lock in its ocean freshness. And our prepared items are made with only natural ingredients, which are easily available under the product information when you select one on our website.

The World Cancer Research Fund review notes that “[the] cancer risks [outlined in their review] do not come from eating fresh, non-processed meats.” This is exactly what Gourmet Secrets prides itself in: healthy, high-quality meats that haven’t been processed to artificially enhance their color at the expense of your health.

We stand by the quality of our products with our 100% satisfaction guarantee, because that is what Gourmet Secrets is all about: providing the very best in gourmet foods for you and your family. We believe that good food is measured by the quality and wholesomeness of the ingredients, and that Canadians deserve only the best food they can get.

Your satisfaction is guaranteed when you buy from Gourmet Secrets online. So why wait? Order today!

Boneless Chicken Breasts

Gourmet Secrets' Boneless Chicken Breasts, served beside potatoes and asparagus, a great way to enjoy free-range chicken!Juicy, plump and flavorful, our Boneless Chicken Breasts are an essential item in nearly all Gourmet Secrets orders. They can be grilled on the barbecue, butterflied or stuffed, poached or baked with cheese and tomato sauce: the possibilities are endless!

Chicken breasts are made up of white meat, which contain less fat than dark meat. The reason for the different color is because of the different properties of the muscle: chicken’s breast muscles, that power the wings, are only used for short bursts of flapping in order to escape predators, so they need less oxygen and thus less dark muscle. Birds that fly long distances, like ducks, actually have no white meat in their bodies, so while they are commonly termed more exotic, chicken is still one of the leaner choices for your health.

Our chicken is free-range, allowing them to wander around in an open-air pasture, and its feed is guaranteed to be free of inorganic additives and hormones, giving the meat that 100% wholesome juiciness and flavor that Gourmet Secrets chicken is renowned for. Our chicken breasts are inspected and cut by hand, then immediately flash frozen in order to lock in all their juices and flavor. Each breast is 5 ounces of white chicken meat, arriving to your home ready to be thawed, sliced and tossed into your favorite dish! Try cutting them into cubes, dunking them in a balsamic-olive oil marinade and making grilled kabobs with them and a variety of vegetables!
