13 Pounds of Ground Beef Later

Tonight I went and picked up 40 lbs of ground beef from Zaycon Foods.  I split this box with my mom and sis, so that left me with 13 pounds of ground beef.

I thought it might be hard to come up with ideas for the ground beef.  It turns out my stock pile provided almost all of them.

The meat comes in a big box, sealed securely in 10 pound tubes.

Since we were splitting the 40 lbs three ways we just split one tube into three parts.

Then I took mine home and divided it into one pound increments.

After opening my pantry I discovered marinara sauce and taco seasoning!

So I now have two bags each of ready to go taco meat and spagetti sauce.  The rest will be saved for future use.

    We got ours too last night. We also got the 30lbs of bacon, and this morning’s breakfast bacon was soooooo good! It was not overly salty like popular brands, and the flavor was amazing. Cooked up nicely at a lower temperature and was in my opinion an excellent thickness that they call “medium” thick cut. I was amazed at how much bacon 30lbs really is but with a little help from my cheap food sealer and bagging material it was sealed up and in the freezer in no time. The hamburger really was great too, excellent marbled fat to meat ratio, and my son said it was the best hamburger he has eaten yet, he’s only 6! So far everything we have gotten from zaycon foods has been superb and I will not shop at a retail grocery store for these kinds of meat again because I have been spoiled by the quality and price of zaycon foods. I just hope that we don’t run out before the next truck comes in!
