Chicken Thighs, Bone-in, Skin-on

Each pack comes is approximately 1.25-1.5lbs and comes with 4 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs.

Our butcher (and most home cooks) love bone-in chicken thighs because of their forgiving fat content that adds flavor while helping to ensure a juicy cook. With these lean thighs from Cobb Creek Farm in Hillsboro, Texas, you’ll get the healthiest level of fat while preserving that dark meat flavor — not like the fatty mess from the supermarket. Chicken thigh recipes come in all flavors, so be sure to check out a few of our favorites below. The thighs are from Cornish Cross broilers who are moved daily to fresh grass pasture and never given antibiotics, steroids, hormones, or arsenic. Limited quantity per week so order as soon as possible; let the online butcher bring the goods to you!

Sirloin Steak

Note: Weight increase from 1lb to 1.5lb. One inch thick. Serves 2-3 people comfortably.

The butcher shop’s ultimate economy steak, the sirloin steak feeds a small crowd on a budget, with a good dose of marbling while maintaining tenderness when cooked properly. Coming from slightly farther down the loin primal than the top sirloin steak, the sirloin steak takes well to sauces to brighten up the flavors owing to the limited marbling when compared with ribeye-style cuts. Our butcher shop experts recommend pan-searing with any number of easy sauces, allowing the tender texture of the sirloin steak to soak up flavor bits from an iron pan. Sourced from Dean & Peeler Meatworks in Poth, Texas.

Chicken Tenders

Each order contains ten pieces, totaling around 1lb. Serves two people comfortably.

Chicken tenders are quick to cook and a healthy option for your kids - or your inner child. For a simple and healthy chicken tender recipe, sauté or grill and serve sliced on a salad. Or try a version of healthy, homemade chicken fingers: toss the chicken tenders in some buttermilk, roll in crushed cornflakes and bake in the oven at 475 degrees for 12 minutes for a sure crowd-pleaser. The chicken tenders come from chickens that are moved daily fresh grass pasture and never given antibiotics, steroids, hormones, or arsenic. Sourced from Cobb Creek Farm in Hillsboro, Texas, and ideal for a meat delivery treat for the whole family.

Ground Beef

Each order contains 1lb. Feeds two people comfortably.

Our superior ground beef, sourced from Dean & Peeler Meatworks in Poth, Texas, comes in two blends to satisfy any of your ground beef recipes. For hamburger recipes, your Austin butcher recommends the 80/20 blend (fat/lean muscle) for rich, flavorful bites. For ground beef recipes where other sources of fat will be present (like stews or chili), opt for the 96/4 leaner blend. Either way, you’re about to taste the most flavorful burgers, meatballs, or stews you’ve ever had. (Read Manuel’s meatball recipe.) Ground at Dean & Peeler Meatworks using exclusively USDA Reserve beef trimmings, this is the most gourmet version of the most economic way to eat meat — ground beef.
