I was at the West Hollywood Bel Campo a couple of days ago to pick up a bag of burgers for some carnivores and noticed ground beef for sale. It was in 2-lb. packs at $3.99 a pound. I cooked half of it tonight for a cottage pie, and oh me gee! That ground beef actually browned, and didn’t have that icky, soupy water draining out of it when frying. I’m pretty phobic about ground meat, it’s so gross, but this stuff is GOOD. I’m going back to stock my freezer.
Where do you shop for good meat that can be reasonably served for not-special occasions? I’m pretty picky about meat, I think most of what’s available is suspect and I don’t trust it, but did I mention the carnivores living in my house?
