I love a good steak, so when Greensbury Market sent me some of their organic steak and chicken to review I was thrilled. I mean, who wouldn’t want to try some yummy organic, grass-fed meat and get to write about it???
I ordered the 10oz. Organic 100% Grass Fed New York Strip Steak as well as a 2lb. package of Organic Chicken Wings. Both arrived still frozen in the nice Greensbury insulated cooler. The cooler had instructions on how and where to recycle it, which is great if you are eco-conscious.
We ate the steak the next day since I just couldn’t wait. Hubby was a bit nervous about grilling it since it was going to be the subject of a blog post… LOL! He did say that it grilled up differently than other steaks… maybe because it has less saturated fat and cholesterol? We were able to split the 10oz. steak and have a great dinner. I really like the fact that we saved money compared to dining out, but still had a cut of beef that was steakhouse quality. I also like that Greensbury Market steaks are grass fed. They say that, “Steak from a 6-ounce grass-fed steer can have 100 fewer calories than the same steak from a grain-fed steer. Simply by switching to lean grass-fed beef, in one year you could save 17,733 calories and lose 6 pounds without changing anything else in your diet.” Win- Win!
A few nights later we needed an easy meal so I threw the 2 lbs. of chicken wings and drumsticks into the crockpot with some bbq sauce. They were a hit! Even the 3 year old ate some. I love that I can feel good about him eating them since they have no antibiotics or added hormones.
Did you know that…
- organic farmers do not use antibiotics or synthetic growth hormones.
- organic meat comes from animals that are given 100 percent organic feed.
- organic animals are given access to the outdoors and/or pastures.
- organic farms do no use most conventional pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, bioengineering, or ionizing radiation.
- organic farmers emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations.
- organic farms are inspected by a Government-approved certifier to make sure the farmer is following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic standards. Companies that handle or process organic meats must be certified, too.
Before trying Greensbury Market organic meats I never really thought about buying organic. Now, after looking at the benefits of organic, I am going to choose it more often.
