I Want You To Have a Really Good Steak This Weekend

I want you and your friends and family to have a good steak this weekend. I want it to be from a grass-fed cow. I want it to be fresh, well-marbled with streaks of fat and as delicious as possible.

This is why I am telling you about one of the greatest things I've discovered covering the food beat here at the Tucson Weekly: The weekly meat sale at the UA Meat Sciences Department at 4181 N. Campbell Road. The entrance is actually on Roger Road; follow the "Meat Sale Today" signs.

At this sale you will find meat. Lots of meat. Meat for humans. Meat for dogs. Ground meat. You will be surrounded by well-fed meat-lovers carrying boxes of steaks. Students in labcoats will help you make selections. You will sample homemade beef-jerky sticks and be a happier person because of it.

One of the guys working last Friday said the animals are all raised on a farm near Flagstaff, and that everything is butchered and prepared on site at the school. Also: Meat nerds are awesome, and it is truly a pleasure conversing with them about their craft.

The Collegiate Cattlegrowers Association website is still under construction, but I've been promised it will be up before long. For the time being, the hours for the sale are 3 to 5 p.m., every Friday, but those hours are extended from 3 to 7 p.m. when school is back in session.
