My love for the Farmer’s Market grows more and more each year.
We live right across the street from our local Farmer’s Market, and while I love it, I still find myself falling in love with Farmer’s Markets all over North Carolina.
Take me on vacation, I’ll find a Farmer’s Market and spend my Saturday morning there. Plan a trip to one of the big cities that run around our borders? You will make my day if we can go a little early and walk around the booths at their local Farmer’s Market. I also love creating recipes from the meats and produce that I find at the market.
This month I’m working with the NC Agriculture Department & Consumer Services (NCDA&CS) to promote beef sold at local Farmer’s Markets and the Farms that they come from.
I chose Meadow Lane Farm as my farm and last weekend, Thomas, little Jax, my mom and I made a little trip to Durham to visit the Durham Farmers Market which is located in The Pavilion at Durham Central Park. After a quick scan of the area, I saw the truck for Meadow Lane BEEF.
We made our way over and met Martha Mobley, the owner of Meadow Lane Farm! I was so glad to meet her and chat a bit with her about her farm and the beef that they raise!
Meadow Lane Farm is a family farm that has been raising Angus beef cattle near Louisburg in Franklin County, NC since 1919! Their cows are pasture-raised on native pastures, grass and clover at the farm and are never confined to a factory feedlot.
Meadow Lane Farm can also track all of their animals from “conception to the table” since all of their cows are born at the farm and live their entire life there.
This amazing woman owned and operated farm is also “Beef Quality Assurance Certified” (BQA) with North Carolina (and the nation), plus they are “Animal Welfare Approved” and annually inspected!
Meadow Lane Farm also sells an amazing variety of organic vegetables, including broccoli, cauliflower, strawberries, lettuce, and assortment of beans and peppers, tomatoes, and more.
They also have 2-acres of asparagus at the farm!
Along with their meats and vegetables, Martha also sells fresh cut flowers at the Durham Farmers Market, along with farm fresh eggs and popcorn kernels from the farm!
So while I was talking to Martha, I was trying to decide on which cuts of beef I should get to work with in the kitchen for this post.
I had arrived at the Farmer’s Market with a few beef recipe ideas but I knew that I needed to see the beef and kind of let it “speak to me” before I decided on what I was going to make.
That’s when Martha suggested the Sirloin Tip Roast. I knew Thomas would love that, so she selected a great looking Sirloin roast for us and then we got a few packs of ground beef to use during “Burger Month”!
Martha was so nice and she even gave use a beautiful bouquet of their freshly cut flowers and a bag of their wonderful popcorn kernels.
She also told me about their annual “Farm to Fork” Feast! This fundraiser event is called “Dinner in the Meadow” and is held each September in the memory of both her late mother, Marjorie G. Leonard, and her late husband, Steve Mobley.
This wonderful fundraiser supports small farmers in North Carolina.
This year, the 5th Annual “Dinner in the Meadow” will be held on Sunday, September 9th, 2018 on top of a hill overlooking the farm with ten high-end chefs preparing local foods from the farm and region.
Grab more information and tickers at www.DinnerintheMeadow.org.
You can also check out the event on Facebook, here!
Martha also wanted me to let y’all know that Meadow Lane Farm will be a part of the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association’s 2018 Piedmont Farm Tour! The 2018 Piedmont Farm Tour is Saturday and Sunday, April 28-29, rain or shine!
Now I hadn’t heard of the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association’s Farm Tours so when I got home, I had to take a look online to find out more about it.
Oh my gosh, y’all! It’s so neat. I’m so sad that we can’t attend this year due to previously planned events but you can bet that we’ll be there next year!

So, let’s talk about this beautiful Sirloin Tip Roast that I got from Meadow Lane Farm to make this Dijon Sirloin Tip Roast with Brown Butter Mushrooms meal!
I’ve got the detailed recipe for this meal at the bottom of this post, but here is a little outline of how I made everything.
Here is the beautiful roast that Martha picked out for us. The roasts from Meadow Lane Beef are already tied up nice and neat but if you happen to find a roast when you go to make this recipe, just have your butcher tie it up or tie it up at home with some butchers twine.
After a quick brush of olive oil, salt and pepper, make sure that you sear the sides and edges of your roast before you start to cook it. This will help create a nice crisp and it’ll lock in some of the moisture.
I also like to make a Dijon mustard glaze when I cook my roasts. This is a little tip I learned from Iron Chef Michael Symon! It gives the Sirloin Roast a great flavor and it also helps lock in even more moisture while you’re roasting it.
Well, technically, Michael Symon makes a Dijon mustard glaze mixture for his ribs, but it works just as great with Sirloin Roasts!
This Dijon Sirloin Tip Roast is fantastic on it’s own, and I love to roast it over carrots and potatoes for the perfect side dish but don’t forget the brown butter mushrooms!
These mushrooms and brown butter are perfect for topping slices of this roast.
Ps. here is a tip for the mushrooms:
Don’t stir them around the whole time they are cooking. Let them cook, leave them alone haha. They don’t need you to be all on top of them. 🙂
They’ll brown and get a great flavor after a few minutes and then you’ll just need to stir them once or twice to brown the other side.
Also, don’t drown them in oil!
They’ll release plenty of moisture on their own while they’re cooking.
So give this Dijon Sirloin Tip Roast with Brown Butter Mushrooms recipe a try! It’s a great meal that showcases local raised beef, plus you can get most of the other ingredients for this recipe at the Farmer’s Market too!
