Seattle, we want to know: what do you think of our New Zealand Angus grass-fed beef?
We love our Silver Fern Farms Angus grass-fed beef for a lot of reasons…but it’s always good to get some fresh perspective and hear new thoughts, so we’re looking for some bloggers in Seattle to join our exclusive* review contest comparing our grass-fed beef to your usual beef of choice.
If you’re up for the challenge, then put on your test kitchen hats and get ready to analyze! We’re looking for thoughtful and thorough reviews, no skimping! We want in-depth analyses of the differences between the two steaks in terms of appearance, cooking characteristics, flavor, texture and any other differences you observe. Most important, we want it to be honest. Please be detailed & candid and tell us (as comprehensively as possible), how does our grass-fed beef compare with your beef standard?
To conduct the review, come by our store to pick up two grass-fed strip steaks. You’ll also need to pick up your usual steak from your local grocery store to do the comparison. Then you’ll cook our grass-fed beef & your beef and compare.
The rules of the challenge are as follows:
1. Email your name, mailing address and blog URL to Katie at kwallace(at)marxfoods.com by
Friday, 6/21 Wednesday 6/26! Katie & Justin will select the participating bloggers and invite them to shop to pick up their steaks – you must pick up your steaks at our store by Friday, 6/28.
2. After you’ve gotten your grass-fed steaks, you’ve got to get your comparison steaks from your local market.
3. The cooking method is up to you. All that matters is that the steaks are prepared the same way (but do allow for the fact that our grass-fed steaks may cook a little faster).
4. Write your review, post it on your blog and send the link to Katie by Sunday, 7/21.
We will post a roundup of links to the posts submitted on our blog, but the judging will be solely internal on this one. The Marx Foods staff will read through all of the reviews and the blogger with the most comprehensive comparison will receive a $200 gift certificate to Marx Foods in Seattle or online!
*This challenge is only available for Seattle-area residents
