BEEF up your Thanksgiving Dinner

If you Google search “Thanksgiving Dinner”, almost all of the images that pop up include a smorgasbord of foods neatly placed around (gasp) a TURKEY!  But, what if instead of the big, fat, bird you could replace it with a tender, mouth-watering brisket, or a lean, delicious roast?  As beef producers, we choose to have beef instead of turkey at our family gatherings not only because it is readily available to us, but also because it tastes better.  Here are some others reasons why you should BEEF up your Thanksgiving dinner this year.

  1. Change is good! – Admit it…turkey can be boring! You really only have two choices: the  breast and the legs.  But with beef, you have a large number of different cuts, which gives you lots of options for a meal that will really WOW the family.  Mushrush Family Meats offers 12 different cuts of beef that have plenty to offer and priced within your budget.  If you need help choosing the right one for your Thanksgiving meal, give us a shout or visit our recipe page for ideas.  We’d love to help you prepare a meal using beef for an eating experience you won’t forget.
  2. Nutrition! – When it comes to nutrition, beef is a powerhouse in many ways.  A 3oz serving of beef (about the size of a deck of cards), provides more than 10 essential nutrients and about half of your Daily Value for protein.  To get the same amount of iron found in 3 oz of beef, you would have to eat 8 oz of chicken and 20 oz (that’s 7 times!) of chicken to get the same amount of zinc found in beef.  Not only that, some cuts of beef are as lean as a skinless chicken thigh.  And just to give you one more stat, research shows that including lean beef daily in your diet and lifestyle can help improve cholesterol levels.  (Source: www.beefitswhatsfordinner.com)
  3. Easy prep! – Many beef dishes can be a breeze to prepare and maybe even easier than a turkey, leaving you with more time to spend with the people you love.  For a large crowd, I highly recommend the smoked brisket, or try a pot roast with potatoes and veggies.   Have a grill master in the family?  Nothing can beat steaks on the grill…quick and simple.  Or maybe you aren’t in charge of the main course, but want to take a lighter fare for a snack.  Pair our summer sausage with a red wine and an aged cheese for a delightful appetizer.

No matter what choice you make, (although we sure hope it’s BEEF!), we wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving.
