What a wonderful book! I learned all about how to cook grass-fed meats (which is different from grocery store cuts) and all sorts of great tips on making your meat budget go further. I am VERY frugal with our grocery budget and didn't think I'd learn all that much new... but this book surprised me with some new tricks I'd not tried...

The chapter on leftover recipes is a real gold mine... I find I get stuck in a rut and do the same things with my left over meats... but now I have a whole new repe
Amazing collection of resources! I just started eating meat again after 13 years of vegetarianism and veganism, and this book has taught me so much about how to cook the grassfed beef we've been buying from a local farm. Essential tips and recipes!

I've only tried one recipe so far, but can confirm that the "best (in
Great cookbook for cooking real food with a Weston A. Price/paleo slant. I like Hayes' approach of cooking a protein and using it in meals throughout the week. She has some cooking tips that I'm going to try. It's not a must-own for me, but if I see it at a used book store, I'll definitely buy it.
Haven't tried any of the recipes yet, but excited to! Loved the homey feel of the book and practical recipes with all the ingredients I like to use. This one was from the library, but put in order to have for myself. Lots of good nuggets here!
