The LLVLC Show (Episode 442): Deborah Krasner Helps You Find And Cook The ‘Good Meat’

Posted Feb 07 2011 5:59pm



In Episode 442 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we hear from James Beard award-winning author and certified culinary professional Deborah Krasner who has a fantastic new book called Good Meat: The Complete Guide to Sourcing and Cooking Sustainable Meat to help you find the healthiest cuts of meat to serve yourself and your family and then offers tips on how to cook these sustainable meats. Listen to Deborah discuss her 30-year “by accident” food writing career, why she became so interested in local, sustainable sources of meat, her attempt to raise meat for her family, what would happen if everyone bought “good meat” from their local farmers, why people seem to settle for grain-fed meats, how we can get the message out there to people who need to be purchasing grass-fed meats, what “cage-free” and “high omega-3 eggs” mean on a label, why purchasing from a local farmer is ideal, specific questions to ask farmers regarding the food you are purchasing from them, what “grass-fed, grain-finished” beef is, why red meat is so vilified by the media without any distinction between grain-fed and grass-fed, the economic reality of our current times that can be overcome, the ease of finding farmers in your local area through web sites like and online retailers, why we have an “obligation” to eat the entire animal, why she includes a recipe for every part of an animal, why Vermont Independent Senator Bernie Sanders who wrote the foreword to her book and the efforts he’s made to promote local food, her favorite low-carb recipe in her book, what she thinks about meat CSAs (community supported agriculture), the “Decision Tree” in her book to help people know how to select the right steak cuts, whether brining free-range heritage turkeys is necessary, and her “cooking school” culinary vacations in Vermont and Italy. If your knowledge of meats is what you find in your local grocery stores, then let Deborah Krasner educate you on finding and cooking the “good meat.”
