Chuck (from Wiktionary) – Meat from the shoulder of a cow or other animal.
I love the local farmer’s market. It has so much energy and enthusiasm and so many things to try out. I love talking to the vendors and hearing their stories and about their lives. I shopped local before it was hip to shop local and I bought seasonal before that was popular too.
My favorite boy toy and I stopped buying beef a while back because so much of it was imported. I didn’t want ground chuck that was a mix of who-knows-what from Mexico, Canada and somewhere in the United States.
That changed when I found local grassfed beef at the local farmer’s market. I know the “beef guy” on a first name basis. His meat is consistently good, tender, and flavorful. I’ve met his wife and son sometimes too, although they don’t quite recognize me as a regular.
Now that I can buy local, grassfed beef, I’ve been eating it again. It is so good!
This picture is from the farmer’s market in Omaha. I don’t have one from here and need to correct that this summer.
