The Meat’s in the Mail

Holiday season is here, and with it comes celebrations full of juicy prime rib, pork roasts, and other tasty slabs of meat. If you can't find your favorites at the grocery store due to supply-chain shortages, there are other options for putting fresh meat, poultry, and seafood on the dinner table. Look online and you’ll find everything from monthly “subscriptions” of roasts and chops to freezer-ready boxes of barbecue — not to mention a newer option: steaks from one of your favorite chain restaurants. Whether you’re planning a fancy dinner or just looking to keep the family well-fed, it’s a carnivore’s delight out there.
