Buying 1/2 beef--what should I ask for?
« on: July 27, 2010, 02:08:03 pm »
So, I am going to order 1/2 beef tomorrow sometime, and my question is--besides all the included muscle meat, heart, and liver----what is reasonable to ask for?

I would really like to get some good fat and stuff, but I really don't know what I would be asking for, and if it is reasonable to ask for it to purchase.

For example I would think brains would be out of the question since this is a family owned business, despite how much I would want it lol.

What are some other fats and such I would be stupid not to ask about?

I would ask for the suet, any decent marrow bones. There is very little chance of you getting brains, I would think. If you are feeling adventurous you can get the sweetbreads.

On the not raw side of things, I would ask for any knuckle bones, tail, tendons and feet to make bone broth with. Lots of good minerals and collagen there that go to waste.

Definitely get the marrow bones, even if they want additional money to cut and package them.

Oh, if you have a dog, you could try getting some green tripe  for it(with the half digested grasses).
