For every box of steaks purchased we provide a nutritious meal to hungry children, families, and individuals across our local Colorado Community.
We’ve partnered with Community Food Share whose mission is to fight hunger by providing access to fresh, nutritious food through their local partners and its onsite and mobile pantries. They are a member of Feeding America, the national network of 200 food banks.
The COVID-19 pandemic has already greatly affected our community. As a key player in our community’s emergency response network, Community Food Share maintains operations so that food continues to be accessible to families in need.
Our company feels that one of the most important investments we can make is in the well-being and health of our neighbors, friends, coworkers, and families.
In times like these, we must come together to support the organizations that ensure our neighbors remain fed during this unprecedented time. Community Food Share is experiencing an increase in demand on their services as school closures and work disruptions threaten our community. Mr. Steak is committed to doing our part to respond to this crisis — for every Mr. Steak box purchased, you provide a meal to families in need.
Meat Grades: Prime vs Choice
The USDA determines this primarily based on marbling, but there are two factors they use to do this: quality grades for tenderness, juiciness, and flavor; and yield grades for the amount of usable lean meat on the carcass.
Prime beef is produced from young, well-fed beef cattle. It has abundant marbling (the amount of fat interspersed with lean meat), and is generally sold in restaurants and hotels. Prime roasts and steaks are excellent for dry-heat cooking such as broiling, roasting, or grilling.
Choice beef is high quality but has less marbling than Prime. Choice roasts and steaks from the loin and rib will be very tender, juicy, and flavorful and are suited for dry-heat cooking. Many of the less tender cuts can also be cooked with dry heat if not overcooked. Such cuts will be most tender if braised, roasted or simmered with a small amount of liquid in a tightly covered pan.
