Frozen cuts of beef delivered to your door can satisfy in-home hunger pangs or properly treat black eyes incurred while wrestling the meat package from the mailman. Stock your edible first-aid kit with today's Groupon: for $89, you get a box of eight boneless, 10-ounce grass fed ribeyes with shipping to anywhere in the continental United States from La Cense Beef (a $184.47 value).
La Cense Beef has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, and the company's grass fed ribeyes sport higher levels of nutrients and a smaller environmental impact than their grain-fed counterparts. Made from free-ranging Montana cattle, the savory steaks flood taste buds with hearty beefiness. Molars mull over the juicy marbling and smooth texture of the succulent cuts, which sport less fat, fewer calories, and higher omega 3, vitamin E, and beta carotene levels than conventional beef. La Cense's sustainable ranching practices also eliminate the need for pesticides, antibiotics, and hormones, resulting in better health for the land and less drama among cattle herds. Hand cut, vacuum sealed, and immediately frozen at the time of processing, the eight steaks arrive at doorsteps perfectly preserved in dry ice, needing only a grill or oven and a dash of salt and pepper to unlock their fantastic flavor.
La Cense Beef
In 2009, the Wall Street Journal took an investigative foray into the world of grass-fed cattle ranching. Journalists purchased steaks from five U.S. producers and fired them at a backyard barbecue outside of Phoenix. They then proceeded to rate each cut, unanimously concluding that the new york strip steak from La Cense Beef was superior to its competitors and even “comparable to a strip at an elite steakhouse.”
The ranchers at La Cense Beef were hardly surprised by this conclusion. On 88,000 acres in western Montana, they raise healthy cows by following methods first practiced on the ranch in 1869. Through sustainable practices, the team has been able to avoid the use of pesticides, antibiotics, and hormones. They hand-cut, vacuum-seal, and immediately freeze each steak before shipping packages with instructions and cheat codes to help unlock the beef’s natural flavor.
