How do you feel about Meatless Monday?


Jess Pryles

I don’t feel much about Meatless Monday. It’s more of a fad […]

Jess Pryles

There are other times when you can really afford to get a bit more creative. You know, in Texas tacos, […] I frequently buy select skirt steaks. […]

I think if I had to choose my favorite cut, this is very controversial in beef worlds because obviously, I feel like my death row meal would be a ribeye but one of my very favorite steaks, the one I just keep coming back to is top sirloin and top sirloin cap.
