Generally people tend to prioritize the tenderness of meat over flavor—everything we eat is young. Most commercially processed beef is between 10-24 months old—this makes for a blander cut of meat. Older meat, that has had time to really experience life, is packed with flavors that reflect those experiences; meaning that you get to taste what the meat should taste like—a more naturally occurring and complex flavor profile.

Note: try and steer clear of any flesh that could be high in medications or preservatives—look for organic.


This “recipe” is part of our tongue-in-cheek look at the eating habits displayed in the Netflix series, Santa Clarita Diet. This is purely spoof–do not attempt to make these at home!
