Hello, my beef-loving peeps!

Do Y'all get as excited about this time of year as I do?

Yes, Mother's Day is just a few days away, and I do love anything that celebrates the fact that I have some amazing kiddos, but, the real reason I get so happy is that grilling season has begun!

Can I get an Amen people?

The sun is shining here in the Pacific Northwest, and that means it is time to head outside and grill everything we can get our little hands on, especially ribeyes.

Oh, don't get me wrong, I love all beef. 

But when it comes to grilling there is just one steak that I dream about, and drool over, and that is a nice juicy ribeye.

But not just any ribeye. Oh no no no.

Why Certified Angus Beef brand?

Well, there are quite a few reasons.

If we are talking about taste, the Certified Angus Beef ® brand is known for its marbling. All cattle start off eating grass, but the Certified Angus Beef ® brand cattle are finished on grain to ensure all of that wonderful marbelization.

Marbelization = juicy, tender, flavorful beef 😋

All beef is not created equal!

Certified Angus Beef® brand is more selective than USDA Choice and Prime. They have 10 exact standards that each cut must meet. Which means that you can be assured that your Certified Angus Beef® brand beef will always be the best cut you can buy.
