Recipe Corner ~ Pipikaula from The Domestic Man 

Dear John,     
The Olympic games are underway, Summer is coming to a close, and Labor Day is right around the corner.  

With the end of Summer comes the beginning of school, and to help you prepare we have designated KidsPicks as our Featured Category.  Enter the promo code "SCHOOL" in your cart to get your 15% discount, which is good through Saturday the 13th at 12:00 pm CST. The discount only applies to items in this category and orders less than 40 lbs. Excludes sale items, volume discounts, and gift certificates.

Don't Miss Out.  Our Bulk 75% Lean Ground Beef Bundle is on sale through Saturday for the last time before Labor Day.  Also on sale are Beef Tenderloin Kabobs, and T-Bone Steaks both of which are great items to consider for your Labor Day celebrations.

We can't all participate in the Olympics, but don't worry here are two giveaways you can enter to try and bring home the gold.  
There continues to be much debate about whether meat and its production are good for us and the environment.  In her piece, Meat is Magnificent: Water, Carbon, Methane and Nutrition, Diana Rodgers makes the case that meat which is raised, prepared, and paired with other foods correctly deserves a place on the podium.

Summer Regards

Health News

"There was a recent article in The Washington Post entitled "Meat is Horrible", once again vilifying meat, that was full of inaccurate statements about the harm cattle impose on the land, how bad it is for our health, and how it should be taxed. Stories like this are all too common and we've absolutely got to change our thinking on what's causing greenhouse gas emissions and our global health crisis!  
Customer Feedback
(Can use discount code for Kids Picks item!)


"A great option for a quick meal. The BBQ sauce is well-balanced and the meat is incredibly tender. Highly recommend!"

Recipe Corner
Thanks to Russ Crandall of The Domestic Man for this recipe.

Paniolos (Hawaiian Cowboys) would dry strips of beef in the sun, to chew on while driving cattle; this food was eventually named Pipikaula (literally "beef rope"). To flavor the beef, they would use soy sauce, as it was locally available thanks to Chinese and Japanese immigrants.

Today, Pipikaula is served in Hawaiian restaurants and sometimes at luaus. It is commonly dried in wire boxes in the sun, or by hanging it to dry, then broiled or pan-fried before serving. The recipe that I'm sharing today is modeled after my wife's favorite Hawaiian restaurant, Helena's Hawaiian Food, on N. King Street in Honolulu. For efficiency's sake, we'll dry the beef in an oven and pan-fry it to a crisp.

Cool August 8th evening with cattle enjoying crab grass and sudan grass.  They are 100% full and happy. 
Purchasing Information
Order Minimums
  • All orders must weigh at least 7 pounds in order to ship, to ensure everything stays frozen during transit.
  • $75 minimum purchase requirement, since we have built the cost of shipping into the price of each product.
  • You will never be charged extra for shipping.
  • There is a $7.50 handling fee upon checkout.
  • The South Carolina Chicken Bundles, BBQ Sauce, produce and cookbooks ship from separate locations, so they are not included in the 7 lb weight minimum.  The shopping cart will keep track and remind you if your order is under the 7 lb limit.   
Weight Discount
  • Receive a $25 discount for every 40 pounds you order. This offer excludes items that ship separate such as the South Carolina Chicken, produce and fresh bundles.
  • This is our way of saying thank-you for purchasing in bulk!
  • This can be any combination of products totaling 40 pounds and does not have to be specific to any category.  Each 40 pound interval will yield the discount - for example, order 80 pounds and we'll take $50 off!
