Greetings from Tink World!
Today we are delivering to Burke County Schools for the Feed my School for a Week program. We took part in this last year and were excited when asked to provide the meat for them again this year. The children at Waynesboro Primary will be enjoying hamburgers, BBQ and other dishes prepared with Tink's Beef and Pork!
I blogged a few months ago about a new label from the USDA. The label is meant to let the consumer know that the meat has been mechanically tenderized. Unbeknownst to us, this new label would affect Tink's Beef as well.
You see, we offer cubed steak. This cut is actually the round steak that has been run through the cuber. The cuber tenderizes the meat. The round steak is a tougher cut. Tenderizing it creates a steak that's easier to use.
The cuber is much like a meat mallet. It tenderizes without totally perforating the steak. Still, it's mechanically tenderized. Moving forward, we must have a label that says, "mechanically tenderized meat." So, when you see two labels on the cube steak, you'll know what that's all about.
As for markets, you can catch Team Tink in action at the Decatur Farmers Market on Saturday, August 6. We'll have a back to school special with roast and ground beef (other things will be in there too).
Well, that's all for now. We'll see you at the market!
