Ground bison? Yup!

By | Angus Meats, Buy local, Food Service, Ground beef, News, Pub Patty | No Comments

Have you ever tried ground bison meat (also referred to as buffalo meat)? If not, you are truly missing out. Compared to beef, Angus Brands’ locally ground buffalo:

  • Has fewer calories
  • Is higher in protein
  • Is lower in sodium
  • Contains higher levels of B-12, B-6, iron, and zinc

Bison meat can be used in most recipes that call for beef and is one of the leanest, most nutritious meats available. You can use it for burgers, roasts, steaks and stew. Your customers will love this alternative. Because most meat bison are raised on open ranches and fed grass, the meat contains far fewer — if any — artificial antibiotics, hormones and steroids than beef and other more common meats. And since July is National Grilling Month – there’s no better time than now to try something new on your menu.

Honoring our local heroes at our annual BBQ

On Friday, July 8th Angus Brands served lunch to thank our local heroes: Spokane Police Department, Spokane Valley Police Department, Washington State Patrol, Spokane County Sheriffs and the Spokane County Fire Department were invited. They were served a complimentary cheese burger, chips and drink. We had a blast supporting our community heroes. Can’t wait for next year!

Curry’s Culinary Corner: Stop poking!

By | Angus Meats, Bold Burger, Buy local, Ground beef, How to, News, Party food, Pub Patty, Recipes | No Comments

You know you want to do it. We all do. It’s a worldwide problem: Burger-checking-and-rechecking-is-it-done-yet-overkill. We all say, “Just a little poke is all.” But don’t do it! Step away from the burger! Hint: only flip once. Don’t play with your food and don’t keep poking it to check the temp when you know it’s not done. The more you flip, the more juices drain and the more flair ups. The more pokes, the more moisture drains. Cook for about 5 minutes (I literally use a watch with a second hand) on the first side, flip and cook another 3-4 minutes on the second side. I then check the temperature and will add cheese the last 30-60 seconds. Juicy perfection.

It’s all about the fat

By | Angus Meats, Ground beef, News, Safety | No Comments

Ground chuck is a popular cut for burgers, maybe the most popular. That’s because it comes from the neck and shoulder area of the cow, a region that tends to be very flavorful and on the fatty side, with 16-22% fat content. “80/20” is how we refer to it and tends to be our beef blend of choice.

Hamburger that has been designed as a typical restaurant ratio is 80:20 lean to fat. Angus Brands tones it down just a bit with our 85/15 ratio which is recommended as a better ratio for taste and texture.

Which brings us to the question: Why does ground beef have fat?

Fat helps give ground beef a wonderful, buttery beef flavor. Generally, the higher the fat content in ground beef, the more juice it will deliver and flavor it will preserve. However, leaner grinds can deliver an equally desirable beefy flavor, depending on how they are used. So understanding what lean points are best for various applications can help you enjoy ground beef to the fullest without sacrificing your healthy diet.

Lean Points: 73/27 – 81/19
Attributes: Exceptional flavor and juiciness · Helps bind meat together for patties or meatballs
Best in: Burgers, meatloaf, meatballs, Salisbury steak

Lean Points: 83/17 – 89/11
Attributes: Delicious flavor and great texture · Ideal for use when beef is the king of the plate
Best in: Meatballs, leaner burgers, pizza topping, meatloaf, chili

Lean Points: 90/10 – 92/8
Attributes: Great for use as an ingredient when cooking · Ideal for making your favorite meals leaner
Best in: Lasagna, chili, enchiladas, burritos, spaghetti, casseroles, tacos, sloppy joes

Lean Points: 93/7 – 96/4
Attributes: Leanest grinds available · 96% lean grinds are given Heart-Check mark as a heart-healthy food · Primarily used as an ingredient in lean, healthy foods
Best in: Asian lettuce wraps, cabbage rolls, tacos, stuffed peppers, tostadas
