  • Steaks from Mexico

    Wifey pulled a couple steaks from the freezer this morning for me to grill for dinner. She noticed on the label" Product of Mexico". WTF, she wants to throw them in the garbage. She normally shops at Pick and Jerk, she bought these at Piggly Wiggly. What do ya think. They are going in the garbage, are we being over cautious?

    No...

    I wouldn't throw them in the garbage, Red. It's NAFTA stuff. You haven't seen them before because believe it or not, we can grow beef cheaper than they can . . . corn, too. (Which is probably the main reason for the beef situation.) This has been a big source of heartache for them with regard to the NAFTA treaty.

    Eat 'em. They might be great.

        This revelation of yours started long before NAFTA. You've been eating foreign beef for 30 years. McD's has publicly stated that America can't meet their needs. So be it, Japan, Brasil, Argentina, Mexico. It's all the same.

        BTW, DQ uses ALL American beef, FYI.

                "beef" can mean many things. they're not real specific about what part of the cow that "100% pure beef" came from.

                    I have a killer local meat place ...it costs more than walmart steak -- but it melts in your mouth. They won't be going out of business anytime soon with me around. They also process my deer and wild game - mmm cheesy brats...

                      I'll even brag on that one. DQ uses 100% pure meat in our hot dogs. And you're dead on. Beef and meat are two entirely different things.

                      Read carefully.

                        Glad to know King. My wife and I are fan's of Blizzards so we tend to end up there anyway. The guy that runs the DQ near us is real nice and always jokes with my wife too. I think the personal touch really sets them apart from the other chains.

                        I have never noticed any meat I buy saying "Made in Mexico", but now I will watch closer. I tend to try and stock up at the meat market out in the country near where my grandparents place is. The people that run it are really nice (and neighbors) and I swear the meat tastes much better.

                        A little side note. I quit eating McDonalds years ago after I found out they were the largest purchaser of Grade 0 beef. Look that up and see how that makes you feel about a big Mac.

                            Now I love a good Ribeye, but for ground meat, I'll take venison and feral hog in a 50/50 grind. A little lean, but great stuff.

                              Slightly off of Mexican steaks, but ...
                              There was an article in our newspaper about a woman that almost died from tainted beef.
                              In part -
                              "The frozen hamburgers that the Smiths ate, which were made by the food giant Cargill, were labeled "American Chef's Selection Angus Beef Patties." Yet confidential grinding logs and other Cargill records show that the hamburgers were made from a mix of slaughterhouse trimmings and a mash-like product derived from scraps that were ground together at a plant in Wisconsin. The ingredients came from slaughterhouses in Nebraska, Texas and Uruguay, and from a South Dakota company that processes fatty trimmings and treats them with ammonia to kill bacteria."
                              Here's a link to the whole article. It makes you think.
