We’re turning the big ‘100’ this May. While a lot has changed throughout the years, one thing has always been our top priority – our service to you. Since 1918, Wohlner’s Neighborhood Grocery and Deli has been a part of your dinner table, helping you cultivate memories that have lasted a lifetime.

Albert Wohlner’s vision has been passed down two generations where now Mike Schwartz holds the torch. Mike carries the 100-year-old traditions to heart and hopes that you’ll join us in our month-long celebration featuring 100¢ deals, fun themes, and old-fashioned neighborhood cookouts.

Wohlner’s and I are very good friends. That happens when you visit each other several times a day. Now, don’t start judging here. I consider myself an organized person but I don’t have to be when Wohlner’s Neighborhood Grocery & Deli is my next door neighbor.

It’s 1926 Albert Wohlner’s Grocery Store and Meat Market was located at 33rd and California Street. Albert, Mike’s grandfather, was supplying meat to a notorious in speakeasy and gambling joint in Omaha (he had to sell to them because they made him one those offers you can’t refuse, capisce.)

Summer is winding down. The kids are back in school so our frame of minds go from BBQ's and picnics to after-school snacks. I've included a few of the later since they are needed, but in the spirit of what is left of August, I've also included some T-Bone Steak BBQ favorites and thinking outside of the typical Gin and Tonic recipes for you to enjoy! Let us know what you think in our comment section!

The Best Meal I've Had All Summer
August 17 12:58 PM

What is the most memorbale item you've tasted all summer? Was it a special dish at a neighborhood block party? Something from a family reunion? How about a new cold cocktail?

The most memorable item I’ve tasted all summer is Char Sui Teriyaki Glazed Pork Tenderloin
When friends came in from out town we got together for a BBQ party.  So we stopped at Wohlner’s and grabbed a couple pork tenderloins, a bottle of Lawry’s Teriyaki Marinade with Pineapple, and some charcoal. 

Cooking the Perfect London Broil
August 10 8:41 AM
Test Account
The secrets to cooking the perfect London Broil are:  First, pick a thick London Broil from Wohlner’s.  Season your London Broil with plenty of coarse kosher salt and coarse pepper.  Grill each side for a few minutes directly over the coals or the high heat just long enough to get a seared crust on each side, then move the steak away from the coals and continue cooking more slowly with indirect heat.  If it's a thick London Broil you may need to turn this a few times while it cooks in the indirect heat. Cook until the internal temperature is 125°-128° for rare; 133°-135° for medium rare.  Rare is better with this cut!!  Do not overcook this very lean cut, sorry, I am repeating myself but I can’t stress this too much.  When it reaches the desired doneness, allow it to rest for 8 to 10 minutes, then slice very thinly across the grain. This combination of searing, followed by slower indirect cooking, resting, and then thinly slicing transforms a potentially tough cut into tender and flavorful sliced steak.  Finally, after slicing season the cut slices with more kosher salt and black pepper.  

What to do with Roquefort Cheese?
August 3 9:56 AM

Roquefort is a sheeps milk cheese and aged in limestone caves in the south of France where they consider it the King of Cheeses.  It’s crumbly yet at room temperature it is creamy enough to be spreadable.  I love to spread it on slices of crusty Wohlner’s Baguette.  It also is the basis for good sauces for beef including tenderloin, Ribeye steak, strip steak, sirloin or sliced sirloin tip roast.  At Taxi’s restaurant they make a wonderful bleu cheese cream sauce they serve on sliced pork tenderloin which is a thing of beauty.

Got Lamb? 
Affordable and Delicious Lamb Shoulder Chops on the grill—2 ways
I love lamb!   Yet the only time I have it is when at a party or  dining out.  When lamb is so delicious, why are those the only times we eat lamb.  This week Wohlner’s has Lamb Shoulder Chops in the ad, they’re great on the grill, they cook quickly, and they’re very affordable.  If you’ve never had lamb shoulder chops then here’s your chance to treat yourself to lamb.  It’s more than good enough to serve to company, and its fast and affordable enough to serve on a weeknight.  No more excuses not to eat lamb!
