this week’s meat tip

Steak with mushrooms

Coulotte steaks are cut from the sirloin of beef, and have a great combination of rich beef flavor, marbling, and tenderness. They’re not the most tender or flavorful steak we have, but they’re also not the most expensive steak in the meat case! These are a certified lean steak, and are fast to grill or sauté in a cast iron pan.

Looking for recipe inspiration? Check out this Skillet Steaks with Sautéed Wild Mushrooms recipe (pictured above) from the Beef Council that use coulotte steaks!

These can be hard to find, so ask your local butcher shop (like LGCM) to cut you some!


what we were drinking

can of juice pants ipa beer

This week, we enjoyed a can of Maplewood Brewery & Distillery’s Juice Pants IPA. We love the juicy tropical fruit flavors in this beer from one of Chicago’s most fun breweries. Stop by Lake Geneva Country Meats and try Juice Pants or any of Maplewood’s other beers!
