A Meatsmith Harvest

Mar 29, 2020

In these episodes, Brandon and Lauren explain why they finally broke down and bought a side of beef for their family; why Brandon decided not to freeze any of it; and how they worked through the side of beef removing chunks of meat, as needed over a three month period of time. 

Brandon will convince you that the best way to eat beef is -- VERY aged, and offers suggestions on how to entice your family to eat it, despite the colorful mold. 

Finally, Brandon and Lauren reveal their three time-tested and proven pillars of beef cookery, and the cooking techniques they recommend in preparing each cut of beef.
