Snake River Farms
Skirt steak and it’s close cousin, flank steak, have become the darlings of the grilling world. This is because they were pretty cheap, relatively speaking, and wit the right care and cooking, taste just as good as anything else. With demand came higher prices and now those cuts aren’t as budget-friendly as they once were. That’s why you’d be wise to pounce on Snake River Farms’ Grilling Greats package on sale for $149 which includes $173 worth of Wagyu skirt steak, USDA choice trip-tip and American Wagyu flank steak.
About Snake River Farms:
Snake River Farms is not a meat subscription service but does offer exceptional dry-aged, USDA prime beef and American Wagyu (think Kobe), known for its marbling, tenderness and big flavor. Cows are sustainably and humanely raised in the Northwest. Snake River also offers heritage Kurobuta Berkshire pork — a favorite among chefs.
Omaha Steaks’ Labor Day Celebration Package ($159) should have you more than covered for a party of any size. (Although we encourage all to celebrate safely this year.) The massive meat assortment includes a 2.25-pound sirloin cap roast, eight 4-ounce burgers, eight kielbasa sausages, eight jumbo franks, four apple and gouda sausages, four apple tartlets and a jar of signature seasoning.
About Omaha Steaks:
The OG Omaha Steaks has been in the meat delivery business for as long as I can remember. It has a preference for grass-fed beef, though both grain- and grass-fed are offered. Omaha doesn’t advertise organic meat like others or provide much information about how the animals are raised, but with a nearly “100-year-old tradition of premium, aged and hand-trimmed beef and satisfaction guarantee,” it has plenty to brag about.
