April 7th-Laura's Lean Beef Giveaway


If one were to ask me what my favorite meal is, it would no doubt contain rare beef! I love it grilled, seared, broiled, stewed, you name it and I will eat it! Ever since Dexter was born I have been trying to not only be more "green" but I have also tried to buy more green. That isn't easy when you are lacking green but Dexter will only get one first shot at life and that, to me, is more important than money.

Recently, I heard of a company called Laura's Lean Beef. At Laura's Lean Beef, they think it's best to farm the way nature intended. That's why they provide their cattle with a diet of natural grasses and grains, without growth hormones or antibiotics. And since lean beef is healthier beef, they raise gourmet breeds such as Limousin and Charolais, for tender, delicious burgers, steaks and roasts that are naturally lower in fat.

So, I contacted them and they sent me some coupons so I (the beef connaisseur) could try their products. I live in a relatively large city with many grocery stores and only a few of the small stores carry their steaks. I could get their ground round at Meijer but I really had a hankering for steak. I went to another store and there, in the meat section lay Laura's Strip Steaks!! I quickly purchased 2 and headed to the checkout. My mouth watered with anticipation the entire 30 minute drive home. Even though I try to eat Low Carb, I had to have a baked potato with this awesome meal.

Later on that night, we feasted on Laura's Lean Strip Steaks, baked potatoes and sauteed summer squash. The steaks were incredibly tender and very delicious. I was hesitant at first because I know that most of the flavor in steaks comes from the fat but this meal totally changed my opinion of that!

Recently, I went to www.laurasleanbeef.com and I read about their farming practices and beliefs. I learned that Laura's Lean Beef is committed to sustainable agriculture, a practical and philosophical system of farming and ranching which revolves around the responsible stewardship of land and animals. The goals of sustainable farming management practices are to produce food and fiber in a way which is environmentally sound, economically viable, and humane.

Laura's Lean Beef is so sure you will love their beef (and I am pretty darn sure too) that they are offering one lucky reader one $25 gift certificate to be used to buy their meat in your local store! That would be lots of burgers or quite a few steaks! All you need to do is head over to Laura's Lean Beef and tell me one product that they carry (other than the strips and ground beef that I mentioned).

While you are there, sign up for their monthly newsletter and you will be able to print off a coupon good for $1 on ANY Laura's Lean Beef purchase!


For an extra entry you can become a new follower of mine via Twitter or Blogger (or both). This awesome contest will end on May 10th at NOON EST so tell your friends so they can have the chance to win. Who knows, maybe they will invite you over for steaks :)
