La Cense Beef Review and Giveaway

My family and I got to try some of the best beef we have ever had last night. We cooked up a couple of New York Strip steaks on our Foreman grill, and “awesome” is the only word I can use to describe them.  The directions said that they would cook quicker than a regular steak, and they definitely did.  What surprised me was how tender these steaks were.  Will (my 18 month old) is picky about meat.  If it has a weird texture or if it is too hard to chew, he won’t eat it.  However, he cleaned his plate off last night!

La Cense Beef is 100% grass fed, and I have to believe that is what makes these steaks so good.  Their steaks are  lower in fat and calories than conventional beef too.  It is also high in Omega-3 fatty acids (good for heart health) and low in the Omega-6 fatty acids (which can contribute to heart disease, cancers and depression).  It is also has much higher beta-carotene in it.  Lastly, La Cense Beef contains no pesticides, antibiotics or hormones.

Now, are you hungry yet?  If you are, I am giving away three prize packs of some of this awesome La Cense Beef.  Each prize pack will have 2 lbs ground steak and 2 petite sirloin steaks. Interested? Here’s what you need to do:

Tip Of The Day

Baking is a good way to tenderize less expensive cuts of beef such as round steak and chuck roast.
