How long have you been with Heinen’s?
I’ve been with Heinen’s for two years. I started in the meat department and have been the meat manager for about a year and a half.
Name a few ingredients that are always in your kitchen.
I always have garlic, onion and rosemary around. They help me take even boring ingredients and make a great meal.
Do you cook?
I love to cook and grill. My favorite thing to grill is the strip steak. I like to keep it simple with just a little olive oil, salt and pepper. Our Heinen’s Own Beef is so good that all it takes is a hot grill and a little seasoning to have something really special. It’s just delicious. Recently my husband and I are hooked on the Niman Ranch pork chops.
What are the top sellers at the Heinen’s meat counter?
Our customers like a lot of roasts. The shoulder roast is very popular here; it’s pretty forgiving when customers cook it, so they always have a great eating experience.
What question are you asked the most?
We’re asked how to cook things and what cuts are best for what the customer wants to make. That’s a really good question for them to ask us because we know the answer, and we can help them go home and make a great dish!
