"A Pound of Love"

A pound of love.......That statement has a great deal of gravity, and assumed value when spoken. I intend to defend that statement in value with what you see before you. Let's face it, we all love the hamburger (except for my vegan, and vegetarian friends who can piss off for this post), and all have a plan on how it should be put together. But what is the basis of the burger?  The meat.  I will never in my conscious mind eat a hamburger again that I am not sure of its contents. I am a butcher; I grind a great deal of beef into the ground product that people make burgers from. This is where I deviate from the norm (a lifelong goal)!

This product is inspired by a butchery in New York City, who makes the best ground beef in the world. Pat LaFrieda Meat Purveyors is a 3rd generation butchery that really sets the benchmark for how beef should be handled. They are at.

This blend was a combination of Kobe sirloin, USDA Prime Strip loin, Meyer Choice brisket, and some USDA Prime Ball Tip trim. My blend changes with what I have in the locker, but never deviates in quality. This ground beef has a flavor that is so remarkable, you would be hard pressed to eat the cheap stuff again


  1. I want to make meatballs!

  2. And I want to eat them.

  3. BBQ time, and we can all has cheeseburger =)
