The Best Premium Mail Order Steaks

Updated on January 11, 2013

We all know summer as grilling season and there are few things more appealing than sitting back on a warm summer night and enjoying a hot, juicy, and well seasoned premium steak!

Whether you are tailgating outside of a favorite sporting event or simply enjoying a weekend of outdoor cooking with family, having the perfect flavorful cut of beef can transform your average cookout into a memorable experience.

While going down to your local grocery store and grabbing whatever item is on sale is always an option, buying your beef online from a mail order company that specializes in selling premium steaks has several advantages.

Why Order Your Steaks Online?

Many times when you pick up a cut of meat from the grocery store, you aren’t always getting the best cut. At some stores, the beef is of questionable quality and often times you end up with more fat than anything else. In addition, a decent amount of the weight you are paying for is typically made up of fat that will ultimately be trimmed away. Once you get the steak home, you still have to season, marinate, or prepare it for the grill before you can cook it.

When you buy online, you can select from a variety of the most desirable cuts including Filet Mignon, Ribeye, Porterhouse, Top Sirloin, and many others. Mail order companies take great care in ensuring that their beef is properly trimmed, aged to perfection, and then flash frozen to seal in the natural juices and tenderness. You can also choose from several prepared options such as bacon wrapped or specially seasoned varieties so you don’t have to take the time to do it yourself.

I don’t know about you but I've tried to make bacon wrapped Filet Mignons a few times and found that it is a challenge to get the bacon to actually stay in place during the cooking process. I've never run into any problems with that when I order by mail!

Last but not least, when you buy pre-packaged meat from the grocery store it is not uncommon at all to get several different sizes and thicknesses in one package. This can make it difficult to make sure that they end up cooking to the proper temperature and ready to eat at the same time. The best thing about getting them from a mail order company is that they will all be almost exactly the same size and come trimmed with just the right amount of marbling to give you restaurant quality flavor.

Which Companies to Order From

When making your choice, you should consider qualities such as type, freshness, flavor, and value. Notice that I said value here and not price. It is important to distinguish between the two and understand that there are many factors that impact the price including the cut, grade, aging, and size.

Be sure to take each one of these factors into consideration when determining which ones are good values. This list is by no means comprehensive and I’m sure there are a lot of good choices out there. These are just a few of my personal favorites and ones that I have found to offer a high quality, great tasting product and dependable service to go along with it.

  1. Omaha Steaks – This company has been around since 1917 and has become world-renowned for offering the finest premium steaks available online. They offer top quality cuts of beef in just about every variety you could imagine including tenderloins, New York strips, and several unique combination packages. They even have ground beef for burgers and some fish available as well making them a good choice for even a family that likes different things. In my experience, their service has always been nothing short of outstanding and they deliver right to your front door.
  2. Rocky Mountain Organic Meats – They offer 100% USDA inspected and certified organic grass-fed meats including steaks, lamb, roasts, jerky, and summer sausage. I have a very tough time finding good organic beef in the stores near where I live and they offer some of the most delicious mail order steaks I've ever found online. This is a company I've recommended many times and I don’t know anyone who hasn't been happy with their service.
  3. Meyer Natural Angus Beef – They have some of the best USDA Prime grade Angus beef Filet Mignons I've ever tasted. They age the beef for 21 days to guarantee perfect flavor and they are amazingly tender as well. They are a bit more expensive than the other companies but the quality is second to none and in my opinion, well worth the price!
