The Portable Chef and friends bought an entire grass-fed steer and are cataloguing it, bite by bite.
Lots of ground beef in the early going. But we do have a ways to go.
After completing the 2010 Beef Draft, the first thing I made was a burger.
I started thinking about the enormity of our purchase relative to the size of my burger, which was providing an entirely filling and memorable meal. If my quarter-poundish burger was an average serving size, and we had 550 pounds of beef (the 600 lbs. shipping weight minus some for bones and packaging), then there were 2,200 individual meals to be had from our one steer – in hundreds of separate preparations.
And I thought, wouldn’t it be great to record those meals?
Fortunately, these thoughts occurred to me just seconds before what would have been a concept-killing last bite:
My draftmates are game. This blog post will be continually updated with new photos of meals from Crazy Eddie beef.
