I have partnered with Bourbon Brothers to review the entrees and share my thoughts with you here.   As a busy household of five, mealtime can be a chore, so it’s nice to have these restaurant-quality meat entrees available for a quick weeknight meal.

My family loved all of the meals we sampled.  Their favorite meals were the pork Chile verde, followed by the BBQ pulled pork and BBQ pulled chicken, the cajun style chicken, the marsala chicken then the Yucatan pork.   We were impressed at how much flavor each entree contained with minimal processing and super clean ingredients, with nothing artificial in the packaging, and ease of preparation.

Bourbon Brothers Premium Cuts Smoked Pork Chile Verde Sauce

  • Savory pulled pork simmering in a spicy green Chile verde sauce – this meal was my husband’s favorite – he loves green Chile and loved the heat in the sauce.  We served this meat in tacos with an avocado, tomato and grilled corn salsa and it was a fabulous meal on the table in under 10 minutes!
  • The ingredients include fully cooked pulled pork, sugar, spices, Chile pepper, green Chile, tomato, salt, and onion among other spices and natural flavors
  • Each 3 oz serving contains 100 calories, 12 grams of protein, 2 carbs, 510 mg. of sodium and 5 grams of fat.

Bourbon Brothers Premium Cuts Cajun Style Chicken Breast in a Creamy Cajun-Style Sauce

Bourbon Brothers Premium Cuts Yucatan-Inspired Pork Seasoned with Citrus and Spices

  • A unique flavor combination of tangy citrus and savory spices like cumin, cinnamon and cloves make for a mouth-watering shredded pork entree.  I loved the citrus, clove and cinnamon flavors, but my kids were expecting a BBQ flavor so they were surprised at the citrus flavor in of the pork.  I paired with roasted sweet potatoes and black bean tacos topped with guacamole and it was like a flavor explosion in my mouth!  Use the meat to make tacos, a burrito, a burrito bowl or to top a cilantro rice for a complete meal.

How to Prepare Bourbon Brothers Meat Entrees

To prepare the meat entrees, simply remove the paperboard sleeve from the tray and microwave with the plastic film for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes.  The film inflates while cooking, helping the meat steam in the packaging so that it does not dry out.  Remove the film, stir and enjoy.  Southern cooking in a matter of minutes with slow roasted flavors that taste like you’ve been smoking the meats all day.

  1. Chicken Marsala : tastes like any roast chicken with gravy. Good, not great, and not inspiring. I buy this product approximately once per month.

    Smoked Pork BBQ : salty sure, but the overpowering flavor is chili powder. No smoke flavor, no brown sugar flavor to speak of other than the thickness of the sauce. The good news is it’s real pork and not much sauce or filler/extender like Jack Daniels and the other precooked BBQ in every grocery store. I would not buy this again unless there are no alternatives to BBQ within 50 miles.

  2. Samuel Ammirato

    Had the Bourbon bother pulled pork and found it inedible. Wanted Jack Daniel’s pulled pork but they were out and tried this. Way too salty. Couple bites and threw it away.

  3. Are your frozen entrees Gluten free? If not certified, are you careful to clean equipment between batches with gluten?

    1. I believe they are but I’ve asked the brand to be 100% certain. I will reply as soon as I hear back. I think the pulled pork and shredded chicken are gluten-free.

  4. It would have been nice to add a “caution – spicy” disclaimer to your Chicken with Buffalo Sauce entree. I tried to eat one of those, and it was so spicy that I was pretty sure I would get a very bad stomach ache if I tried to finish it. Unfortunately, it’s chicken, and I’m sure you know that chicken should not be stored and reheated. As a result, I had to throw away half the entree.
