The Matter of Meat: Responsibly Raised Steak and Brisket

The Matter of Meat: Responsibly Raised Steak and Brisket

This post is brought to you by Nebraska Star Beef, which provided advertising support.

As Steven has said time and time again, where your food comes from and how it was raised matters as much as how you grill it. Nebraska Star Beef shares this belief, and has tailored their business to follow this tenet. With a focus on traditional methods of raising, aging, and butchering cattle, the result is a high quality meat with a trustworthy source you can rely on.

There are a few key terms to look for when purchasing beef online—to ensure the highest quality standards—and these Angus steaks and ground beef check all the boxes: Humanely raised, antibiotic-free, hormone-free, and flash-frozen. Each steak is also hand-cut and trimmed one at a time by an experienced butcher, giving you the best cut possible from every animal.

The care and thought they put into how they raise the cattle (from their diet to pen size) is evident—you can get a feel for their philosophy by watching this video:

You could, for example, begin with their Premium Angus Brisket and use our Slam Dunk method for preparation (caution! the results may make your mouth water uncontrollably). For a smaller cut, the Filet Mignon is a great choice, and makes the list of our 10 Best Cuts of Steak for Grilling. And of course, the crème de la crème, the Wagyu options. Worth the price tag for this phenomenal cut.

Like many online stores for purchasing beef, Nebraska Star ships everything to you frozen, in packaging that will keep it frozen while it ships. Even in the summer months, their careful shipping packages should get the beef to you in perfect condition.
