Everything comes nicely delivered in individually wrapped packaging boxed together on dry ice so it’s super frozen and cold! I simply transferred everything to our deep freezer outside so I could pull from it during the week to cook homemade meals.

I tried the “Custom Box” which is a monthly subscription box priced at $149 after the introductory savings and comes with 9-14 lbs of meat/seafood delivered. This box is recommended for individuals and small families.

They also offer a “Big Box” for mid to large-size families with 18-26 lbs of meat for $286 delivered post discount (regularly $306).

You can actually pick from 6 of over 40 different types of meat and seafood to customize your order each month and you can skip a month of meat delivery or choose every other month if desired.

Hip Tip: Watch for a pop-up at checkout offering a free pack of uncured bacon for your 1st box to sweeten this deal!

Hip2Save Sidekick, Sara gave Butcher Box a try too! Check out her thoughts…

“I wanted to try Butcher Box simply because of the high standards they hold with meats and I couldn’t be happier! I often get meat locally from our market but the hours and days they’re open aren’t super convenient with my schedule. I love that I can get the same quality at a great price for my family shipping right to my door. You simply can’t beat the convenience and I think this would also make a GREAT gift idea for the holidays.”

Now for the yummy part! Let’s talk about the delicious & easy meals I made using my Butcher Box! I’ll be sharing the cuts of meat I personally tasted and how I prepared them.

1.) ButcherBox Pork Spareribs

We loved these pork ribs! There was very little fat, yet they came out tender and juicy. You could tell they were super high-quality and tasted great.

BBQ ribs are one of the easiest weeknight meals EVER! I just throw defrosted ribs into the Crockpot using some BBQ seasoning and a little broth. After about 6 hours, they are so tender and I can throw them in the oven with some BBQ sauce to get caramelized and YUMMY.

2.) Butcher Box Ribeye Steaks

Steak is a favorite in my house, and these did not disappoint! They turned out super tender and had a great overall taste and texture. 🥩

I prepared them using my favorite cast iron method where you heat up a cast-iron skillet super hot, sear the steaks, and then finish them in the broiler. It gives steak such a mouthwatering crust on the outside while keeping it nice and tender on the inside. Go to Hip2Keto for all the details on cast iron steaks!

steak and eggs

By the way, leftover steak with eggs is the best! Such a filling breakfast or even lunch idea, and super easy to throw together.

3.) Butcher Box Uncured Bacon

This uncured applewood smoked bacon cooked up super crispy and was delicious. It’s free of nitrates, and we fried it in a skillet to make BLT sandwiches for the family one day. It had a great flavor without being too salty or fatty. I am calling this bacon perfection. 🥓

4.) Butcher Box Chicken Tenders

These chicken tenders are in leak-proof packaging (which I appreciate!) and they turned out fantastic. They baked up crispy on the outside and tender on the inside and were my kids’ favorite meal.

As an easy meal idea, I dunked the chicken tenders in an egg mixture then breaded them with Italian breadcrumbs mixed with Everything But the Bagel seasoning, and baked them in the oven after spraying with coconut oil. These chicken tenders are so good and flavorful! My family was a BIG FAN of this meal idea.

5.) Butcher Box Ground Beef

This 85/15 grass-fed ground beef has a mix of sirloin and chuck and crumbles up nicely for yummy tacos, chili, sloppy joes, or any meal using ground beef, with a clean robust taste.

I feel like tacos are a weeknight staple in my house! I just cooked my Butcher Box ground beef with some taco seasoning and served it on corn tortillas with cheese, radish, cilantro, and onion. 🌮 YUM!

6.) Butcher Box Salmon

This wild-caught salmon turned out so tasty and flaky! I am sometimes hesitant about making salmon at home and this was restaurant quality with great flavor and texture.

I prepared my salmon using my air fryer for the first time ever, and I’m excited to say using the air fryer makes some YUMMY salmon! I love the caramelized top and tender flaky inside of the fish. It only took about 6-7 minutes at 390 degrees to cook this salmon. I coated it first with olive oil and seasoned it with lemon pepper, paprika, and salt.

Is the Butcher Box meat delivery service worth the money?

Honestly, everything we tried tasted great from Butcher Box! You can tell each cut of meat and fish is high-quality. If you happen to have some room in your budget for a high-quality protein that is sustainably raised, then I vote YES! I was pretty impressed and I’m thinking you will be too.

However, if you don’t have wiggle room in your grocery budget, this box may not be for you or might be something to consider for special occasions. It makes for a great gift idea as well if you’re running out of ideas for the person who has everything!

If you enjoy eating grass-fed, organic food that’s raised in a thoughtful way, then Butcher Box meat delivery could be a great subscription to consider investing in. It’s obviously not the least expensive way to buy meat, but it’s the convenience of filling the freezer with high-quality meat and fish which makes it worth it. I hope my Butcher Box review gave you more insight into trying out this yummy service!

Our readers LOVE Butcher Box as well…

I have been getting Butcher Box for over a year now. I was fortunate to have signed up a couple of months before the quarantine started. It has been so nice to get high-quality meat delivered to our door especially since I live with someone that is high risk so we are tightly quarantined to the point that we do not go to the grocery store. It was especially helpful when the local stores were running out of meat. Also, they OFTEN offer specials and freebies to members which are really nice. I belong to a local CSA for produce but their meat prices are more than Butcher Box so that isn’t a better option for us. Best of all, the flavor of the meats is SO good! Hip reader, Suzanne H

I live in a place where it is super expensive to do a meat CSA or buy at the farmer’s market, and I don’t have a chest freezer. I have purchased ground beef for life, bacon for life, and now wings for life. I get 6 boxes per year and supplement with organic chicken from Publix and grass-fed beef from Aldi. If I could buy half a cow or something similar (had a deep freezer), local might be worth it. Otherwise, I am a butcher box for life person here! Hip reader, Shelly

I love Butcher Box! I looked into local farmers but many were not humanely raised and were not grass-fed and grass-finished like Butcher Box which I have to have because of Mast Cell Activation Syndrome. I think it’s great quality meat and the prices are good. Hip reader, Keliannsaves

    Their beef comes from Australia. Support your local, American farmers by purchasing locally.

    • ElleS

      Hi – I understand buying local is usually better because you’re supporting local farmers. But . . . here’s why they source their beef from Australia:

      “Currently, we source the majority of our beef from Australia. Why Australia? Unlike the United States, Australia has built an entire system on certifying pasture-raised meat. Australia has very high animal welfare standards as well as the climate and pastureland to allow cattle to spend their entire lives grazing.

      Our cattle are 100% grass-fed and roam free on grassy pastures throughout their entire lives. These cattle are never put in concentrated animal feedlot operations (CAFOs). They eat their natural diet of grass and may receive other grasses or minerals in the winter months. Examples of grasses they eat may include (but are not limited to) annuals, perennials, bluegrass, rye grass, and sorghum.

      Cattle that eat a diet similar to the above give us a finished product that’s a source of Omega-3s, vitamins, and minerals. We believe this grass-fed, grass-finished beef is extra tender. We find it has an unmatched flavor. With great taste and added health benefits, it’s a choice our members can feel good about eating and serving their families.

      Typically, cattle that are grain fed start their lives on pasture, but they are later confined to feedlots where their diets can include grains. A grain-based diet primarily consists of processed grains like corn and soy. A grain-based diet and life in the feedlot causes animals to grow much quicker.”

        The packaging and shipping aren’t good for the planet, either.
        Grass-fed beef is available in the USA, by the way.

    Oh goodness me! There’s hair on the ground beef in the first picture. I’m definitely interested in butcher box, but would love to hear from those who have ordered if they had concerns about the sanitation and/or cleanliness of orders. I’d not want to get food poisoning and the picture at least appears quite unsanitary. Thank you in advance!

    • Trish (Hip Sidekick)

      Whoops – looks like her stray hair made its way into the pic (mine are all over my house)! Our Hip Sidekicks who have ordered from Butcher Box and have been pleased with their orders and have had no concerns with the cleanliness or sanitation of their products. Thanks so much for mentioning this, I’ve updated that picture! 💕
