What is the best way to a man’s heart? Some might say with a kiss, others might say with a new present: (gun, shovel, tools…), those are good ways to get close; but the best way by all means is….DRUMROLL PLEASE………………… through his belly. Yep, all “REAL MEN” are overcome through a nice, juicy, tender, melt in your mouth, monster portion, grilled or sautéed to perfection, piece of meat! Easy pleasy!!If you pet your dog, he will be your friend. If you set a bone with some meat attached in front of your dog, he will be “Man’s best Friend”. Same is said with your “Man”. Endulge him. Give him meat, he will be happy. Give him Zaycon Meat and he will love you forever.
What is there to say in a review about meat? Are you kidding? WHAT IS THERE NOT TO SAY? Especially when I’m a Hunter (someone who actually shoots the animal to provide the protein that their family needs) and consider myself a Connoisseur of fine meats. Alright, I may not be the best judge of delicacies, but I’ve had my fair share of Beef, Pork, Chicken, and Fish, and let me tell you what I have learned about Zaycon Foods (Meats).
- Quality. When I buy meat I always look for quality above all else. That means, less fat and more meat. I used to work at a butcher shop in a small community where we were the only grocery store. Our goal was to provide people with the best quality cuts. True, we were the only grocery store, but that was only within the town. People do travel and especially in a small community they do a lot of hunting and processing their own meat. So in order to continue making a living we had to make sure that the meats we provided was the best quality so the people buying would keep coming back. One things for sure, if you go to a restaurant and buy that steak or chop and it tastes or looks awful, you probably won’t be going back. I don’t care how fancy a restaurant is, if they don’t have a quality piece of meat, then it doesn’t matter how good the cook is. You can’t substitute the sugar with onions when you make lemonade and still get that great taste!
- Freshness. Who wants Beef, Chicken, Pork or Fish that has sat in the freezer for 2 years collecting ice crystals? This is why I don’t like to buy frozen meat. Do I really know how long it has been frozen for up until I bought it? If I am going to have meat in my freezer, then I want to be the one to put it there so it doesn’t end up with those ice crystals that nobody prefers. I want my meat fresh, ready to eat or defrost so I can enjoy a great taste without the worry of food poisoning or rot. Because I want it fresh and the best quality, I eat Zaycon Foods.
Have you ever heard of bountiful baskets? Fresh fruit and vegetables are delivered to one specific location at a fraction of the cost compared to going to a grocery store. Why not meat? If you could have better quality meat, that is fresh, less fatty and even pre-cooked or smoked to perfection delivered to a location near you, and it costs considerably less than going to a grocery store, then isn’t that a no brainer?! Zaycon foods does exactly this, and pound for pound they deliver in every aspect.
We received 10 lbs of the 93/7 super lean ground beef, and a 10 lb Applewood Smoked Ham. Both items came fresh in heavy duty packaging that kept it from leaking. This is important to me. I hate picking up a package of meat to look at it and having it leak all over my hands, clothes, or the floor. Our Zaycon Foods packaging did not leak. The taste is superior. We have been able to make so many different dishes with these two different kinds of meats. From omelets to soups, to tacos to lasagna, you will be able to use Zaycon Foods meats for all of the recipes on your menu.
The quality of their hamburger surpasses even most grocery stores at 93/7. It is 100% grown in the USA with no chemicals additives or water added during processing. I couldn’t believe the difference in this ground beef over other brands we have tried. It is superb. The Zaycon Foods 93/7 Super Lean Ground Beef come in a 40 pound case, so you get 4 ten pound chubs. It is meant to be purchased in bulk so that you only have to return for more every few months.
The Zaycon Foods Old Fashioned Ham came precooked and slow smoked with real applewood. It is about 22 lbs and contains two individually vacuum sealed hams per case. One of my favorite things about Zaycon Ham was that it was boneless! Our family loves meat. I don’t think that there has ever been a time in all the years we have been married that there wasn’t some kind of beef, chicken, pork, fish and venison in our freezers or fridge. With that being said, we have tried a lot of different kinds and brands of meat and have a small list of what we prefer. Zaycon Foods is now at the top of that list!
