Encased meats are a lot like LEGOS; they're easily linked, colorful in appearance, and commonly end up in people's digestive systems. Stock up on the building blocks of a balanced diet with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of fresh meat and homemade sausage at Paulina Meat Market, located just south of Addison on Lincoln.

The butchers at Paulina Meat Market prep and serve a meaty selection of fresh deli eats, predominantly rooted in European recipes and traditions. Give taste buds a respite from wintery woes with a sizzling serving of summer sausage, infused with whole yellow mustard seed seasoning ($7/lb.), or celebrate dunch and linner with a hunk of famous homemade beef jerky ($19.75/ lb.). The aged prime rib eye steak is considered the most tender and flavorful portion of the cow ($26.50/lb), in contrast to the press sylta, which is commonly known as the Scandanavian melting pot, amalgamating pork, veal, and a variety of spices ($6.75/ lb.).

For more than 50 years, Paulina Meat Market has maintained an atmosphere of a small-town, community-oriented market. Likewise, the market's modern website extends the communal reach with an "Ask a Butcher" feature, which allows customers to submit queries concerning common foodstuff issues. Each month, the market then grounds up the best of the butcher's responses, encasing them in an online newsletter that can be easily printed out and consumed via eyes.

  • An obscenely wide selections of pristine cuts of meat? Check. Jolly butchers enthusiastically advising you on the best marinades, seasonings and cooking techniques? But of course. Enough old-world charm to rival a Norman Rockwell painting? And then some. – K. Tighe, Centerstage
  • Their butchers are always friendly and they definitely go above and beyond – Julia J., Yelp, 1/24/11

Paulina Meat Market

Established since 1949, Bill and Laurie Begale purchased Paulina Meat Market in 2006. As a family, Bill, his wife, and three children continue to operate it as a traditional meat market with German specialities.

In addition to old world sausages, staff have started experimenting with exotic meats and complementary deli items. They now serve sausages stuffed with fillings such as apples and pork, jalapeño and pepper jack cheese, and even a goat bratwurst, all of which can be paired with specialty condiments and fine cheeses.

Paulina Meat Market has broadened the range of the meat counter to include unique cuts of beef, including Flat Iron and Hanger steaks, along with an option for grass-fed beef, Bill Kurtis’s Tallgrass Beef. Knowing that not everyone likes to cook or admit they use their oven for a dragon-hatching operation, the staff have also created a line of ready-to-eat entrees such as their famous chicken pot pies and corned beef hash. All the meat is locally sourced throughout within the Midwest, with the exception of the lamb, which comes from Colorado.

The service is enormously helpful. I wanted specific specealty items and they were very helpful- my items ranged very inexpensive to expensive and they were gracious and helpful with all of it. They sell prepared food that looks wonderful ad lots of european grocery products. Their meat has gone up in price- may be worth it but is expensive.
