Get the Best Deal on Fresh Meat: Savory Butcher is in Grapevine This Week + Other Texas Cities!


If you follow regularly, you know that I'm a Boy Mom. My husband is a runner and my boys are very active as well. Their energy levels result in large appetites. I spend a lot of time shopping and cooking. I have a general routine and adjust when growth spurts hit. In today's post, I'll share my best tip for managing dinners -- stock up on good quality meats at great prices from Savory Butcher(Spoiler alert - this company offers amazing deals and we have a $5 discount for Trendy Mom readers!)

If you are familiar with coop fruit and veggie boxes that come straight from farms, Savory Butcher is somewhat similar, but for meats.  They work with different ranchers and sell the meat in bulk, bypassing the grocery store and bringing prices down by 30% to 50%.  They schedule events in different areas and drive a refrigerated truck full of farm fresh meats for customers to pick up their orders at scheduled locations and times. For instance, the pickup for the next delivery near us is at the Grapevine Baptist Church parking lot.  



You'll need to place your order in advance and buy in bulk, but the savings are amazing. For instance, the 40-pounds of Fresh Trimmed Boneless Chicken Breasts are only $2.19/pound, so it's an amazing deal.   If you have a good size freezer, you may order for your family. If your freezer doesn't have a ton of room, they make it easy for you to split your order because the 40 pounds are divided into four 10-pound bags.  Similarly, they split many of the bulk orders into multiple packages so that it's easier for you to split among family and friends. 


Personally, we ordered chicken breast, 93/7 ground beef, and uncured bacon this week.  It was convenient for farm fresh meat. A glimpse into my box is shown below.



While you are able to freeze the bags that they provide directly in your freezer, I prefer to use freezer bags to separate the meat into portions for family meals.  As I mentioned, I have active boys who eat a lot.  I am able to save money and time by freezing family size portions of meats in individual freezer bags. It's really convenient and makes it easy to quickly feed my hungry boys. I really like the bulk aspect too because I don't have to pick up meat at the grocery store since my freezer is stocked.



In summary, Savory Butcher makes it easy for us to purchase farm fresh meats in bulk at a relatively inexpensive price point. As a Boy Mom they are amazing because our grocery bill is often quite high, but by shifting our meat purchases to Savory Butcher instead of our local grocery store,  I've found nice savings without feeling like I sacrificed quality.  It's a win-win for us and for local ranchers!

Now that I've told you about Savory Butcher, let me share a recipe that I use on busy weeknights by pulling out one pound of chicken breasts from my Savory Butcher order.




Recipe: Easy Mini Chicken Pot Pie Muffins
Ingredients for filling:
  • 1 can of cream of chicken
  • 3/4 cup of milk
  • 1 pound of chicken breasts
  • 1 bag of frozen vegetables (we used carrots and peas)
  • 2 medium potatoes (chopped into small ~1/4" to 1/2" chunks)
  • 2 cans of biscuit dough
Directions:
1. Add all of the ingredients above with the exception of the biscuit dough to your slow cooker and cook on low for 4 hours (or until everything is cooked thoroughly).
2. Chop or shred chicken and mix all of the ingredients again.
3. Spray muffin pans with cooking spray so that the dough does not stick.  Press biscuit dough into the muffin pans, shaping it so that it is easy to add 2 TBSP of the filling to each.
4. Fill each biscuit with approximately 2 TBSP of filling.  (The more that you are able to fit in, the better.)  You will have leftover filling in your Crockpot.  Save this because you may want to offer the extra to guests that prefer extra filling on the side of their plate.
5. Bake for approximately 15 minutes at 400-degrees.
6. Cool and serve with the extra filling.
