Our family loves BBQing, eating outside and enjoying our big backyard…now that we finally have a yard to call our own. Since we are on a budget, we tend to buy cuts of meat that are on sale and ones that we can stretch further than others. To be honest with you, I’ve never really thought about where the meat comes from or what it’s fed before we buy it at the store. But now, thanks to ButcherBox, I know that it makes a huge difference in the taste and quality of the meat.
We’ve all seen that there are pretty much subscription boxes for anything and everything imaginable. ButcherBox is one that I hadn’t seen before…100% grass-fed & finished beef, organic/pastured chicken and humanely raised Heritage Breed pork, all delivered to your doorstep every month. But, I’ll be honest. I was skeptical because I had never eaten grass-fed beef before and wondered if there was a difference.
We chose the beef and chicken box, which comes with 8-10 lb of meat. Boxes vary month to month but are $129 each (you can always add on other meats too). This works out to $6.50 a meal.
I can honestly say that the steaks we made were the best steaks I had ever eaten in my life. I couldn’t believe how tender and flavorful they were (all we added was a little salt & pepper). My oldest son LOVES food but isn’t the biggest steak fan. A lot of the steaks he’s eaten in restaurants have been tough so he just thought that he wasn’t a steak person. But, he tried the steals from ButcherBox and he couldn’t get over how delicious they were and keeps asking when we’re ordering the next box!
Mike Salguero started ButcherBox after trying grass-fed meat and wondering why everyone wasn’t eating meat like that. The problem a lot of us have with buying grass-fed meat is that a lot of us don’t have access to meat that is raised in this way and even if we do, a lot of people just don’t have the freezer space that it requires to store the meat. Mike found a way to make it accessible to everyone.
I love that you can choose an all beef box one month and then a chicken & beef box the next month. You can even choose to get a box every other month or every three months. It’s customizable to your needs! Plus, there are great add-ons like burgers, bacon or sausage. Your box will also come with recipes for you to try!
Our family will be getting another box with steaks because they were our favorite things to try. Which box would you family love to try?
