Buy to Save

With Certified Hereford Beef

We're all looking for ways to save. For me it means less shopping trips, more brown bag lunches and being cautious about the miles on my good ole' grand pix. Rest assured one place you can be saving money is by purchasing Certified Hereford Beef at the meat counter. CHB introduced value cuts, delicious product that has a price tag that is a fraction of the cost associated with the more familiar cuts. Better yet, these cuts are considered lean by the USDA, less than 10 grams of fat, 4.5 grams or less of saturated fat and less the 95 milligrams of cholesterol. Remember that a serving of beef is the size of a deck of cards.
With the temperatures creeping upward, I've been in the mood for grilling! Here are a couple value cuts CHB recommends for your first cookout party.

Flat Iron:
Originating from the chuck, this cuts ranks second in tenderness, only to be beat by the tenderloin. This steak possesses exception flavor and is quick & easy.

Tri-tip Roast
Coming from the sirloin, this cut is very popular in the Western U.S. Using your favorite seasoning, cook slowing on the grill for delicious flavor. The left-overs are the best part, slice thinly (across the grain), for a fantastic sandwich. The miss the tri-tip sandwiches I had at World Ag Expo.

Don't forget to use your meat thermometer and check to see your steak has reach an internal temperature of 145*F for medium-rare and 160*F for medium doneness before taking off the grill. Enjoy with your favorite veggies (can't wait to veggies from my family's garden).
