Is your beef grass fed?
Yes, it is. Our beef is sourced from as close to the Magic Valley as possible, meaning around 65% are from Idaho and the surrounding areas. They are summered in rich mountain and dessert grass lands in the Rocky Mountains before being finished the last 180 days on locally grown corn and grain from the Magic Valley. They are not grass finished.
What makes your beef better?
We source only the best beef possible for the Meatandpotatoco.com. Starting with Black Angus specific breed animals which are blockier and marble better than most other breeds. We then wet age our beef for a minimum for 28 days. This creates enzymes that breakdown the muscle to create tenderness and adds to the rich beefy flavor.
We then cut precisely! Extreme tight specifications one every single steak cut to ensure no tough sinew, silver skin, or extra fat where not desired. We also keep in mind that our customers want a spectacular eating experience, so we consider each muscle, the direction it is cut, and the reason for each cut at hand when processing. True center cuts like Tenderloin with no butt tender or side muscle, center cut sirloins, with no sciatic seam and separated from the Coulotte. New York strips that are true center cuts with no vein end. These sound like small thoughts but make huge differences when eating!
