Have You Heard of Hanger Steaks?
If you are looking for a great steak to grill that has great taste , ask us about our hanger steaks. These usually cannot be found at other markets locally. Anatomically, the hanger steak is said to “hang” from the diaphragm of the steer. The diaphragm is one muscle, commonly cut into two separate cuts of meat: the “hanger steak” traditionally considered more flavorful, and the outer skirt steak is composed of tougher muscle within the diaphragm. The hanger is attached to the last rib and the spine near the kidneys. They used to be also called “butcher’s steaks” because butchers would keep them for themselves instead of for sale. Not here. We have them ready for you to try and enjoy ! Not as tender as other steaks , the hanger is good for marinating.
Rotisserie Chicken on “Roto Wednesdays” Also Available Anytime by Special Order
Every Wednesday between 4-6pm we have fresh cooked rotisserie free range whole chickens available for pickup. Call ahead of you want to be sure to get one. You can also order these anytime with advanced notice. They average about 5 pounds and are priced at $13.99.
