Prior to the advent of butchers, people had to wait for cows to walk into pits of knives. Stroll down a safer protein path with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of premium meats and seafood at Springfield Butcher.
A Springfield institution for more than 30 years, Springfield Butcher is prepared to meet all manner of carnivorous cravings. True to the practices of America's founding butchers, sausages are made in- house and steaks are cut by hand or telekinesis. The shop's 11 cuts of steak are enough to give most grills a meaty meltdown, and its four varieties of ground beef ensure hamburglers and chili macs can find the right beef for the job. Make Wednesday morning the new Saturday night with a quartet of bacons, including country and applewood, or stock up on veal shanks to make osso bucco or to bribe dogs to retrieve children stuck in tall bushes. The crowded roster of appetite-swelling attractions also includes a variety of chicken cuts, lamb and pork chops, seafood, and more. A slew of oven-ready dishes are also available to help busy cooks subvert the sands of time, such as bacon-wrapped scallops ($2.99 each), meatballs ($4.99/lb), and chicken cordon bleu ($5.99/lb).
Committed carnivores can choose to stock up with a freezer pack, providing 17 lbs. of sausage, bacon, and ground beef ($54.99). In addition, Springfield Butcher also provides hunters with an array of venison services.
Springfield Butcher has been filling bellies and empty barbecue pits with fresh, hand-cut steaks and seafood for more than 30 years. Prime cuts of beef range from filet mignon and Prime rib roast to flank steak, cube steak, and fun-size steaks perfect for trick-or-treaters. Other protein options run the gamut from Danish-style pork ribs to game meats including buffalo and wild boar.
Sausages made in-house are available smoked or un-smoked, and bacon wraps its smoky flavor around scallops, which—like the rest of the shop's seafood offerings—are delivered fresh every day, except Sunday. Those looking to go from stove to table as quickly as possible can also opt for oven-ready entrees such as chicken cordon bleu or pork chops with onion stuffing.
