    Laura's Lean Beef

    Does anyone have opinions on Laura's Lean Beef?
    At Laura's Lean Beef, | Laura's Lean Beef
    We had some ground beef the other night in spaghetti (had some pasta we needed to get out of the house) and it tasted better than any ground beef I've ever had before. Both my wife and I were picking the chunks of beef out of the pan while putting the leftovers in containers.

    From the punchline on their home page:

    "AT LAURA'S LEAN BEEF, we believe smarter eating shouldn’t keep you from enjoying the foods you love. That’s why our beef is raised without antibiotics or hormones, on a vegetarian diet … and it’s naturally lower in fat."

    I read green as excellent, and red as grain fed .

    I have used it and do like it, but as Cal. said it is probably grain fed. Better than your run of the mill grocery store beef, but not any better in the fat profile (which is negligible anyway).
    People too weak to follow their own dreams will always try to discourage others.

    Yeah, I figured it's better than the conventionally produced stuff anyway.

    I have used in a pinch as well. Not grass fed but not CAFO either.

    I eat it regularly. It's more along the lines of cube steak in taste. I cook it, chop it up, add a tablespoon of EVO per burger and season to my liking. When I first tried them it brought back lots of good memories eating my polish grandma's cube steaks. It's marketed at the low fat crowd. Grilled, I'd rather eat cardboard. It needs "help" .. In a sauce, in a salad, in a soup, in a stew. I had some today smothered in home grown tomatoes, some EVO, red wine vinegar, and Italian seasoning.

    We buy ground, grass-fed bison instead. We buy it from a local butcher shop. Yum!

    There's a local bison farmer here and I can get ground bison for less than the "good" ground beef at the supermarket. The only problem is my wife doesn't like bison meat. However, we've got a large freezer being delivered in less than a month, and I will be buying bison meat for myself.
