I got a great little recipe and product for you. The nice people from Laura’s Lean Beef contacted me a while ago about their product. They sent me some vouchers and I went out and got some of their 8% lean ground beef.
We made these empanadas — one of the recipes on their website. They turned out great and were really kid friendly. The kids dipped them in the guacamole and I served them with black beans. But before I reveal the giveaway, a little more about Laura’s Lean Beef…
In 1985 Laura Freeman, a seventh generation cattle farmer, took over her family’s business. She started experimenting with lean, gourmet breeds of cattle including Limousin and Charolais — and made the decision not to use antibiotics or hormones at a time it was acceptable to do so.
Today, Laura’s Lean Beef is available in 7000 stores throughout 47 states. Her meat is free of antibiotics and added hormones and all cattle live in pastures and graze on natural grasses and grains. All of their farmers follow strict standards for raising and treating cattle.
This lean beef is easy to get (at major grocery stores) and is just as lean as ground turkey. I plan to try more products and post more recipes! The nice people at Laura’s Lean beef are offering 3 $20 vouchers. So for this giveaway there will be 3 lucky winners. To enter here’s what you have to do:
