Preparation

  1. Aspen Ridge Natural Angus Strip Steak: Take your charcuterie board to next level with Aspen Ridge Natural Angus strip steak. Season with salt and pepper, prepare the steak to your liking, and then cut into ½-inch slices for easy grabbing! We chose Natural Angus strip steak for its delectable taste, juiciness, and versatility.
  2. Seafood: Turn your board into a surf ‘n’ turf board for an elevated eating experience. Simply choose your favorite seafood and prepare to your liking. We used pre-cooked shrimp with cocktail sauce on the side. You can also opt for prawns or mini crab cakes.
  3. Cheese: Cheddars, pepper jack, or your favorite cheese make a great option for your board. Select varied textures and colors for taste and aesthetic. We love Merlot Cheddar paired with Brie, topped with a drizzle of honey for a sweet note.
  4. Something Crunchy: A diverse range of textures and tastes will always give your charcuterie board a bit of sophistication. We used hazelnuts, walnuts, pistachios, and cornichon, but feel free to fill your board with your favorite crackers, nuts, or pretzels.
  5. Something Sweet: Fruit and dark chocolate give your board some complementary flavors and textures. We used dark chocolate bits, blackberries, grapes, and pomegranate arils, but you can use whatever satisfies your sweet tooth! Prioritize colorful and in-season fruits.
  6. Sauces: Complete the picture with a few sauces. We love grainy mustard and garlic aioli but add as many sauces as you like to add flavor.
  7. Whatever else you'd like! After that, the rest is up to you and what you’d like to add in! We served ours with a basket of baguette slices and a blood orange old fashioned cocktail – the perfect cocktail for any occasion.
