We are so excited about our first order of grass-fed beef!
For our first order, we kept it pretty small to try it out.
Here's what we got:
--3 packages of ground beef
--3 packages of stew meat
--1 chuck roast
--1 eye of round(I am excited to try this cut. They said this is their personal favorite and is very tender cooked in 1 inch slices, as cutlets.)
--1 big bag of bones for broth, soup and maybe even one or two for the dog!
If we like the meat, our next order will be larger.
I did gulp a bit at the price. But I then realized that it's probably not that much more expensive than regular-priced meat at the grocery store. From what I've read about grass-fed beef, I'm hoping that the health benefits will far outweigh the price and be totally worth it! Another positive aspect is supporting a local family farm. I love it!
Dinner tonight: Grass-fed burgers on the grill!
