~PRATHER RANCH MEAT COMPANY~ is going to be expanding at the Ferry Building Marketplace, more than doubling their space in Spring 2011. They will continue to sell their array of beef, pork, grass-fed lamb, and local poultry, but have also hired chef Erica Holland-Toll (Ducca) to oversee a variety of ready-to-eat dishes for breakfast, lunch, and take-home. Look for barbecued beef, Carolina-style pulled pork, spiced pastrami on rye, and meatball subs (all on Acme bread), along with seasonal salads, soups, and sides with farmers market-fresh ingredients. Of course Prather’s delicious beef burgers will be available, along with bison burgers, hot dogs, and sausages, plus hand-cut chuck and bean chili, French fries, and onion rings (all fried items will be fried in organic beef tallow or pork lard). You can fill up on breakfast items like eggs and scrapple, “lardy” biscuits and gravy (just what I need, more lard in my life), and a crispy pork chop sandwich with seasonal jam. Yeah, it’s meaty!
