U.S. Wellness Meats Review

U.S. Wellness Meats was started by John Wood.  U.S Wellness Meats raises grass fed meats.  I have only tried grass fed meat a few times, so I was interested in trying U.S. Wellness Meats.  There are a number of reasons,  but there are also benefits to eating grass fed meat.  I wasn't aware of this until I looked into it further on their website.  Grass fed meat is said to have an excellent flavor, but it's also full of omega-3's.

I received a really great sampling of products from U.S. Wellness Meats to try out.  My package of meat came in excellent condition and everything was chilled perfectly.  The first thing that I thought was that I was going to fire up the grill!  One thing I do suggest is make sure you read the cooking tips that come in your package!  One thing I learned is that grass fed meat cooks 30% faster than grain-fed meat.  So why is that important to know?  You need to make sure you are watching your meat when you are cooking because you don't want it to dry out!  They also suggest that for large cuts of meat that you slow cook the meat.  They suggest for smaller cuts that you sear both sides first and then cook on lower heat to finish it up.

So how did I decide to cook the meat we received?  The grill of course.  I received some skirt steak, new york steak, lamb chops and a lamb steak and all of them went right on the grill.  When I cook steak I personally just use a basic seasoning rub of garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, and paprika.  You can season the U.S. Wellnesss Meat any way that you like, but I wanted to season mine lightly.  I wanted to be able to taste the actually flavor of the meat.  Everything was excellent!  The meat was juicy and flavorful.  My kids loved the lamb chops.  They each ate one and then split the 8 oz. NY Steak!  My kids never eat that much meat, so you know it's good when they do that!  I have a hard time finding good lamb chops in my local grocery stores.  I'm not exactly sure why my stores don't carry them, but I love that I can get them right to my door from US Wellness Meats.  I received a package of ground beef too that was great for the tacos that I made.  What would you want to try from U.S. Wellness Meats?  I also received some Beef Franks and Beef Snack Sticks!  These have no nitrates and no MSG.  My kids love both of these!  They love munching on Beef Snack Sticks and these ones are a product that I can feel good about giving them.  They also aren't overly salty like many beef sticks can be.
