Meatcart online butcher review

meatcart-meat

Meatcart is an online butcher (www.meatcart.com.au) with their production facility located in Eagle Farm, Brisbane.  The meat is grass-fed all the way through. This results in a leaner cut of meat with less marbling. Meatcart offers high-quality beef, pork, chicken, lamb and seafood which you can order from the convenience of your home.

We decided to try Meatcart to see if there was any difference. We ordered 500g each of pork loin chops, lamb loin chops and organic beef rump steak. The meat was precut into handy portion sizes. For example, the 500g of beef steak has 2 to 3 slices of steak, whereas the 1kg option has 4 to 6 slices. Meatcart have a range for those who are looking after their weight, called CorrectWeight, where the meat is pre-portioned and trimmed of fat.

The meat arrived on Wednesday just after 3pm in the afternoon and was icy cool when I opened the bag to put the meat in the fridge. It was packed in an insulated cooler bag, with two large plastic packets of ice cubes. The bag has been fully tested to keep your meat chilled for a minimum of 8 hours.

The first night we had the pork chops with vegetables. The pork comes from the Darling Downs and it’s nice to know it is 100% Sow Stall Free.

The second night we ate our delicious organic rump steaks with potato chips. They were Certified Organic, which means the animals have been raised with no exposure to artificial elements such as hormones, growth promoters, pesticides, residues, or chemical fertilisers.

On the third night, we tried the lamb chops with steamed vegetables. The lamb chops are from New South Wales and Victoria and are 100% grass fed. All three cuts of meat were delicious, but the lamb was my favourite.

Meatcart delivers to all areas of Brisbane 2 business days after your order is placed. There is a flat rate delivery fee of $7.15 including GST per delivery.

Thank you Meatcart for providing us with a sample pack of meat.
