85% lean and 15% fat, this ground beef is 100% grass-fed and 100% delicious. Antibiotic, steroid and hormone-free, it’s perfect for a good juicy burger, meatballs, chili or, if it’s Tuesday, tacos. However you use it, it’s the perfect staple to have on hand for a mid-week family meal.
The Round is the largest primal on the cattle, located at the back and top of the animal, an area commonly thought of as the “haunch.” The round is mostly used for large, relatively inexpensive cuts of steak and roasts. It has a nice, moderate level of fat, making it the perfect source for a balanced grind of meat like our 85% lean / 15% fat ground beef.
For centuries, Uruguay has been at the forefront of sustainable cattle ranching, long before “sustainability” became a buzzword. Sitting atop one of the largest freshwater aquifers on Earth and free of environmental pollution, its vast pastures are the perfect environment for raising cattle. Here, we partner with small family farms, where gauchos meticulously care for both their herds of Black Angus cattle and the treasured pastures they graze on. The cattle spend their entire lives grazing exclusively on this nutrient rich grass. The end product is a rich and tender beef, leaner than its grain-finished counterpart and high in Omega-3 fatty acids.
