How often do you eat beef/red meat? If I could afford it I could probably eat steak everyday. So i was wondering, how much is too much when it comes to beef/red meat?
Every day, and I'm loving every minute of it!
Propably every second day. Good beef is expencive here (like $14/kg and more), gourmet whole fish is even cheaper.
I do not eat steaks much, mostly braises and organs (lamb liver, kidney and heart).
Only steaks i eat are hangar steak and skirt steak, i like their flavor, with sous vide there
is not much more need for expencive cuts. Short ribs make a perfect medium rare meat with sous vide, it just takes few days ;)
I never buy ground beef, organic or not.
I am working on securing some reindeer meat when its soon in season. Reindeer meat must have quite different lipid profile since they live even below -40C temperatures. Optimal for nordic genes paleo diet i bet.
Eat red meat almost everyday. Grass fed red meat is the most nutritious meat you can eat. I would suggest eating ground beef, because yes steak is way expensive.
Beef! It's what's for dinner. It agrees with my stomach more than any other and I like the taste/versatility the best. Plus...it costs me a lot more to buy a whole free range chicken than it does to buy grass fed ground.
Almost every day. Don't forget that certain cuts of meat can be much cheaper than a sirloin steak and be just as tasty and healthy. Ground beef, chuck, etc.
The standard mainstream advice is to go for 'lean cuts of meat', but I think just about everyone on this site ignores that and does the opposite when possible.
Also, don't forget to include organ meats like liver, which are often very cheap.
Everyday. I make a roast every Sunday, and that is what I use as protein in my salads that I make for lunch, so at least that. Then I mix up dinner with the occasional chicken or fish, and very rarely pork or lamb. So everyday for lunch, and 5/7 days a week for dinner as well.
I'm down to about 4 times a week right now with one of those usually being steak, 2-3 ground beef, and maybe 1 brisket. My desire for red meat is down a little this summer, but I think that is due to the extreme heat in Oklahoma this year. Fish (and even chicken) have had more appeal lately than when it has been cooler.
