I have always been a huge animal lover and being raised in Nor-Cal I have also always been aware of where my food comes from as well as how it's raised. At one point I was even a vegetarian due my concern for animal welfare. I have been eating meats again for years and have found that there are meat companies such as Strauss Meats that also have a concern for the animals quality of life. I really, really love Strauss Meats because of this as well as the delicious cuts of meat and varieties they have to offer.
Strauss is an exceptional leader in providing sustainable and humanely raised meats—a passion driven by their own families’ personal commitment to living a natural, sustainable, and organic lifestyle. They work with like-minded family farmers and ranchers who are committed to raising their animals with the same passion and ethical standards. Their commitment to the welfare of our animals extends throughout the processing phase. Working with renowned animal-welfare advocate Dr. Temple Grandin and Dr. Kurt Vogel, University of Wisconsin-River Falls, they have implemented even higher standards of care in their facility. These improvements minimize stress, increase comfort and improve the safe handling of their calves.
One of the meat cuts we picked was Free Raised Veal scallopini/cultlets. The meat was super tender and easy to cut.
1/3 stick butter
1 cup milk or heavy cream
lemon pepper to flavor
2 tbsp flour to thicken sauce (optional)
The free raised veal is so tasty, so soft and tender. It was the first time I have ever had veal and I truly loved it. I am a huge fan of Strauss Meats now and forever. I'm so glad my local Whole Foods carries this brand.
