In Europe it is difficult to find true grass fed animals, a term that strictly speaking refers only to ruminants (chicken and pigs must eat some grains). However, in Scotland there are vast pastures, and sheep and lamb should be even easier to... (more)

Choose flank over skirt steak. Season with oregano, salt & pepper. Put some olive oil on a paper towel & wipe down a broiler pan. Pop the pan in the oven & turn on the broiler. Cook 2-4 mins each side (depending on how rare you like).... (more)

Because I live with someone who can not handle the smell of cooking meat indoors, I need to grill outside in a covered area. I'd like to get a grill, but for right now, cost is a major issue. Electric would be best.

They do sell at SportChek. Whether they have any in stock is a different matter. I have seen some models on sale for as little as $60.00. Right now on their site they have a buy one get 50% off the next pair.

Hi all, I was wondering where people have been getting grass-fed offal, and whether this is as important as getting typical grass fed meat cuts. For example, I live on the west coast where 99 Ranch sells lots of cheap obscure meat parts which I'm... (more)

Not 99 Ranch but I've never felt so miserable eating meat as when I eat meat from the Korean market in K-Town. I've never bought the fish but the pork and beef they sell makes me feel horrible. I guess I get what I pay for.
