Rockin' F!

We used to turn up our noses at frozen meat, but since we stopped shopping the big H, we've been exploring other options. Our favorite so far is beef from the Rocking F Farms in Climax, NC, which we buy at the Greensboro Farmers' Curb Market

Their frozen hamburger patties are, mmm, beefy, with a a depth of flavor you don't get in store-bought beef. Nice texture and deep, reddish-brown color, too. The lady at the market told me that it's not organic beef, but it's grass-fed and then finished with corn.

It's a lot different from the midwestern corn-fed filet mignon that I had in Cincinnati a couple of nights ago, which was so tender and light that it was almost like eating beef-flavored cheesecake.

Both are good!
