Yucatán-Marinated Pork Shank Kit for 2

Product not eligible for additional discounts or promotions

Crispy on the outside, melt-in-your mouth tender pork shank, marinated in a delicious, citrusy, garlicky marinade, inspired by the bold flavors of the Yucatán. This bright & summery meal is served alongside elote-style grilled corn, complete with a Yucatán-spiced mayo and crumbled cotija cheese, and a fresh heirloom tomato salad. Each kit includes 2 products from Chef Stephanie Izard’s “This Little Goat” line of globally inspired sauces, spices and everything crunches – 1 bottle of This Little Goat went to Yucatán sauce & 1 bag of This Little Goat went to Mexico everything crunch.

Since it first opened its doors in the Windy City’s Fulton Market District in 2010, few Chicago restaurants have been so consistently praised—and packed—as Stephanie Izard’s Girl & The Goat. James Beard award-winning chef Izard’s bold, globetrotting flavors defy easy categorization, but every item on her family-style menu is wildly creative and insanely delicious. Izard is renowned as one of America’s best chefs: she won Season 1 of “Iron Chef Gauntlet” and Season 4 of "Top Chef” and took home the James Beard Award for Best Chef Great Lakes in 2013. One of the best restaurants in Chicago, Girl & The Goat was a 2011 James Beard Award "Best New Restaurant” finalist.

To Serve

Make the Pork Shank

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  • Remove pork shank from the bag (feel free to remove some of the excess gelatin, if desired)
  • Add to a mixing bowl and toss with about ¼ cup Yucatán sauce until well coated on all sides.
  • Season with a pinch of kosher salt.
  • Place upright in a small, oven-safe baking dish (with the bone pointed vertically up). This will allow the shank to caramelize and cook evenly on all sides.
  • Roast for about 40 – 45 minutes.
  • Increase the oven temperature to 450 degrees and cook the pork for about 10 minutes more, until beginning to caramelize and crisp up.

Make your Elote-Style Corn

  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk ½ cup Kewpie mayo with ¼ cup This Little Goat went to Yucatán sauce. Set aside.
  • Preheat a grill, grill-pan or large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Place the corn on the grill and let cook, rotating frequently, until the kernels turn bright yellow and begin to lightly char on each side, about 1-2 minutes per side.
  • Alternatively, broil the corn on the upper oven rack, rotating occasionally, until lightly charred on each side, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  • Remove corn from the grill (or oven) and brush all over with Yucatán mayo (reserving some for your pork shank).
  • Sprinkle with crumbled cotija cheese and This Little Goat went to Mexico crunch. Top with freshly-torn cilantro leaves.

Make your Tomato Salad

  • Cut the tomatoes into 1-2 inch chunks.
  • Add to a mixing bowl and gently toss with a drizzle each of olive oil and This Little Goat went to Yucatán sauce until well coated. Season with a pinch of kosher salt.
  • Transfer to a serving bowl and drizzle all over with Yucatán mayo. Top with torn leaves of mint and cilantro and a sprinkle of This Little Goat went to Mexico everything crunch.

Assemble and Serve

  • Remove pork from the oven and transfer to a serving plate.
  • Drizzle all over with Yucatán mayo.
  • Top with This Little Goat went to Mexico crunch and fresh cilantro and mint.
  • Serve warm, alongside grilled corn elotes and tomato salad!
  • Enjoy!

It was perfect! Arrived on time, easy to follow instructions and the freshest ingredients. The meal was a birthday surprise for my husband because we couldn’t get reservations at The Girl in the Goat when we visited Chicago a few years ago. And it was DELICIOUS!! I’m thinking of ordering the short rib meal for Fathers Day.
Michelle L. - East Northport, NY
We had a mix of seniors and youngsters and everyone said the Girl and the Goat pork shank was one of the best meals we've ever had. The pork fell off the bone, the sauces were delicious and the beans - the best. It was truly a wonderful experience.

Tasty recipe. Was a bit involved and challenging to follow but watching the Instagram live video helped

So fun! Stephanie Izard was great! I felt like I was sharing the kitchen with a friend without having to share the space. The food came out delicious! She was easy to cook along with.

I just LOVED cooking with Stephanie Izard. The food was out of this world, easy to make and follow along with, too. Plus, it was great to hear Stephanie's cooking stories and travels around the world. I would definitely do another cook with her or any of the other amazing chefs on Goldbelly!
Jenny G. - Phoenix, AZ
All of the amazing sauces, the pre-made empanada dough and scallion pancake, the royal icing, the other measured ingredients...made for an incredible delicious and actually achievable meal! It's one of the best I've done. I really really really appreciated how everything was shipped. I also love Stephanie Izard and Girl & the Goat in general. Can't wait to do it again.

Melissa W. - Sylva, NC
The Meal Kits from the Girl and the Goat are literally one of the best things available online right now. We've done two regular meal kits and two cook alongs, and we can't get enough of what Stephanie and her team creates. They have all been spectacular. Well thought out. Beautifully packaged. Challenging enough for a foodie/amateur chef like me while still being very easy to follow and execute. Delicious. And great portions. A wonderful value for your money and time. Girl and the Goat on Goldbelly is now our go-to for Pandemic at home Date Night.
Tanya B. - Highland Park, NJ
Dinner turned out great and we had fun making it! We have taken two of the Girl and Goat classes and this was similar with no teacher.
Richard G. - Chesterfield, MO
The ingredients were received thoughtfully packed, fresh, with ice still intact. The printed material created excitement and was very helpful for preparation. It is a pleasure watching Stephanie in the kitchen. Although I could not follow along at her speed, I enjoyed watching the presentation, then resumed cooking after.

The live class was so awesome and the food was just delicious. Stephanie is amazing and you should do live classes with her more often! I can't wait to do another.
