Why Australian beef?
-The Australian beef industry is constantly working on ways to lessen their impact on the planet and have set an ambitious goal to be carbon neutral by 2030
-Australian grassfed beef is a naturally lean, high-quality protein, and an excellent source of Iron and Zinc for energy and a healthy immune system.

Serving sizes:

  • USDA recommendations and don’t over-do it – portion size (4-6oz per person, four times per week) and make sure your plate is properly balanced with fresh veggies and carbs.
  • So that 20oz rib-eye steak you cooked up for dinner – should serve 4-5 people or can be used for multiple meals – learn how to use leftovers in salads, on a sandwich, in a pasta or on a pizza
    -When you do find it – stock up and freeze what you can’t use within the expiration date – just ensure you freeze and thaw to safe food guidelines. EG: wrap meat according to portion sizes for your household and for steaks – each should be wrapped individually in cling film. This ensure the meat freezes down quicker and makes it easier for portion control when thawing. Always thaw in the fridge – 1 day before required.
