Over the dinner I joked that with the current quality of meat around I am thinking about becoming a vegetarian. Joking aside, the meat quality now and what I remember when I was a kid is absolutely atrocious. Factory made, pumped full of stuff, old already when hitting shops front. We have tried a variety of supermarket and butcher meat and we were burned at both. Buy a supermarket chicken breasts, take them out of the light they use there and it suddenly looks pale almost green. Put it on the frying pan to see tonnes of water coming out and the meat shrink to half of its original pigeon-like size and weight. We have tried pretty much all of our local butchers and all supplied us with not-fresh meat at some point. Our most local award-winning butcher sold us once a bag full of stinky slimy chicken breasts. We have not been back since. Anyway, all of that has lead us to eat less meat than we used to. Whether that is good or bad, I'm not sure, and whether we are just too picky when it comes to meat, we have not had much luck recently with finding a regular supply of good quality meat (at reasonable price - I'm not talking about £50 per kg chicken breasts). So, what do you use? Are you just happy with supermarket meat? Do you buy free range, organic or just any? Do you use your local butcher? Or order your meat online? Disclaimer: before you say it - yes, we are picky when it comes to out food. We only eat home cooked meals and try to find fresh, tasty and full of good stuff ingredients. A full chicken in a tin for £2 will not cut it. We need fresh, good quality, healthy meat at reasonable price, is it too much to ask for?
