The internet changed the world. Not only do we enjoy instant access to things like news, television, and research, but we also use the internet for the bulk of our shopping, turning to our favorite online retailers whenever we need new clothing, books, and pet supplies.

One of the things people don’t realize is that thanks to companies like Rancho Foods, it’s not only possible to buy steak online, but doing so improves the quality of their lives.

If you aren’t already buying steak online, here are five potential benefits that will inspire you to do so.

When Buying Steak Online, You Know How the Beef Was Raised

In most cases, it’s impossible to know how your local grocery store acquires the steak they sell. Not only is it difficult to determine if the beef was raised in a pasture or a feedlot, but you have no way of knowing if the animal was fed any growth hormones, artificial preservatives, or meat by-products. It’s even possible that the store is trying to pass steaks taken from cull cattle as premium steak.

Here at Rancho Foods, we’re very particular about the beef producers we work with. We believe that the key to providing our customers with the high-quality steaks you deserve is in how the beef is raised on California beef farms where the animals are raised in outdoor pastures and finished out on high-quality grass and grass hay. While this diet means it takes a little longer for the animals to reach the ideal weight, we feel the fact that each of the grass-fed steaks we sell has more flavor and a higher nutrient level than the corn-fed steaks makes the extra time worthwhile.

When Buying Steak Online, You Enjoy the Superior Taste of Properly Dry-Hung Beef

One of the things grocery stores do to boost their profit margins is skip the 28-day hanging process that leads to properly dried cured meat. The reason grocery stores skip out on the dry hanging period is that it decreases the amount of water in each steak, which means each steak weighs less, which reduces the amount the store charges for the steak.

The reason we make sure each Rancho Foods steak comes from dry-hung beef that has been hung for exactly 28 days. Yes, this reduces the weight of the steak, but it also provides natural enzymes with the time needed to break down the muscle which leads to the steak that not only tastes amazing but which is also incredibly tender.

Buying Steak Online Saves Wear and Tear on Your Car

Driving to the grocery store each time you need fresh steak puts a great deal of stress on your vehicle (and you if you must deal with less-than-perfect driving conditions) and the amount you spend on gas quickly adds up. When you become a Rancho Foods subscriber, all you must do is tell us what types of steaks you need and we’ll pack them up and have them at your door within 48 hours. Not only does this system enable you to enjoy high-quality steaks, but also extends the amount of time you can use your car.

Buying Steak Online Means Never Running Out

The Rancho Foods subscription service is set up in such a way that you can choose to have a new delivery of steaks shipped directly to your home as frequently as needed. It doesn’t matter if you want to have a new shipment of steaks arrive once a month or once a week, we’ll happily accommodate your needs. You can set things up in such a way that the same steaks are shipped to your home each time. Finally, you no longer have to worry about what you’re going to cook for dinner.

Buying Steak Online Means No More Frozen Meat

Some grocery stores extend the length of time they can offer steaks for sale by freezing them. This might not seem like a big deal until you consider that freezing not only changes both the taste and texture of the meat but that it also has a much shorter shelf life once it’s thawed.

As a Rancho Foods subscriber, you can rest assured that not only will each steak you receive in your subscription box is fresh off its 28-day curing process, but that it’s never been frozen. The packaging we’ve created means that your steaks arrive at your door in perfect condition and ready to be tossed onto the grill and enjoyed.

For more than 30 years, Rancho Foods has been responsible for providing natural, high-quality protein to Southern California businesses and residents. During this time, they’ve steadily established themselves as the best source for eco-friendly, locally sourced meats.
