Where’s the Beef? Right here at Emergiblog!

steakburgerNow what on earth would this little icon for beef be doing on Emergiblog?

Well, for the last two years I haven’t bought ground beef from anyone else!

I discovered the Johnson family and Steakburger through a website back then, and I asked them if they would like to advertise on Emergiblog.

They said yes, and I am happy to give an unqualified endorsement!

(Plus, they have a totally cool ranch!)


I call Steakburger “guilt-free meat”.

  • The cattle are free range, gently handled and totally grass-fed. They’ve never even seen a feedlot!
  • No hormones, no antibiotics and no pesticides – it’s the definition of holistic management principles!
  • The meat is deboned by hand, not by machines.

They call it “steakburger” because that is exactly what it is. The website says it best! SteakBurger is All the cuts of beef including the Filet Mignon, Prime Rib, T-bone, Porterhouse, Sirloin, Rib, Brisket, Roasts… everything, all ground up.

(The hamburger you buy at the store? It’s all left over parts after the good cuts are removed!)

And it’s the best meat I’ve ever tasted. When I tell people I have my meat shipped from Texas they think I’m nuts, but if I had not tried it, I never would have believed the difference.

Steakburger is a family-owned and family-run business and the customer service is beyond compare. Andy Johnson moved from the city to the ranch, learning the art of ranching as he went along. The entire Johnson family is involved in the business, from little Noah on up! When you order, you’ll meet Dorothy Johnson who handles the billing and answers any questions you might have.

I’m no vegetarian, believe me! I like buying from a family business and I like knowing the beef I am eating is a healthy alternative to what we are exposed to at the supermarket!

You’ll like it, too! Check out the full story at the Steakburger website for a thorough and entertaining look at the company. While you are at it, check out the family blog at Ranch Living and meet the family, the cattle, the horses and some puppies along the way!

I’m honored to have Steakburger associated with Emergiblog!

In fact, I need to go re-order some Steakburger myself!

Now, if I can just talk the Johnsons into going into the free-range, grass fed chicken business…….

    Hey Kim….been reading for a long time, first comment. My family always bought our beef from a ranch, and it’s oh so much better. Can’t wait until I have a house some day so I can have a deep freezer and quit buying my meat at Albertsons (sooo not the same).

    Ha ha! Kim, I can’t believe I just found this post… if you weren’t talking about RED meat from TEXAS, I’d think you were a Democrat! (The cattle are free range, gently handled and totally grass-fed… etc, etc.) Too funny.
