Finally, some good boiling beef.
We really stocked up. Specialty meat market in North Platte buys swinging beef by the half and cuts there own after aging it. Its not aged like they do fine steaks but has some age on it.
The boiling beef all has the bone in it and we bought 12 pounds of beef shanks and a bunch of 7 bone roasts which can be turned into boiling beef or pot roasted. It is all local grass fed beef NOT from feed lots where they feed the animals unmentionable things just to get weight on them.
Yes, the price was perhaps one and a half times what we would pay in a supermarket but have had a couple of meaty shanks boiling for almost 2 hours and the aroma is wonderful.
It is getting almost impossible to buy beef on the bone anymore from a supermarket, everything is shipped in from who knows where and it is cheaper to ship without the bones. We even bought 6 pounds of beef bones which he cut up in 2 inch chunks for us.
Looking forward to lots of beef and noodles, pot roasts, beef stew and just plain boiled beef with lots of horseradish
