The Good Chop review I do here shows it is a fairly new meat delivery company. Reason for me to dig a little deeper and try to find out how good it is.
Spoiler alert: I was surprised by what they have to offer.
What is Good Chop
Click to jump straight to each topic
The basics are the same as many other online butchers Order, deliver and enjoy, but their difference is that all their meat and seafood is sourced in the United States.
In my opinion that is what makes them stand out in a crowd.
What Farms Does Good Chop Use?
I had a good look at the sourcing page on their website and found that they only work with domestic farms and fisheries that raise their animals responsibly and without antibiotics or adding hormones to their feed.
What Does Good Chop Offer?
They have two packages you can choose from.
Here you can pick 6 items from the Good Chop menu, and depending on what you choose this can add up to 36 portions of meat or seafood.
This plan is good for individuals and small families.
In the large plan, you pick 12 items from the Good Chop menu, and again depending on what you choose this can add up to 72 portions of meat or seafood.
This plan is good for medium-sized families and if you have a large freezer.
Good Chop Menu
It would take a whole website to show all the menu options so I will keep it short here.
For the Good Chop beef on the menu, I found several options to choose from.
They, however, also have the option to order 100% grass-fed beef.
Most beef is started on a diet of grass and later in their lives are switched to a diet of grains and roughage.
Some of the items I found on the Good Chop beef menu are:
- Ground beef (also 100% grain-fed)
- Burger patties
- Bottom round
The good chop pork all comes from American farms that stay away from antibiotics and they are mostly fed a vegetarian diet. Except for the piglets that are also fed milk protein.
You will have to scroll down the menu to find the pork and here are some of the options of the Good Chop pork menu.
- Ground sausage
- Boneless pork chop
- Pork tenderloin
- Pork butt
The chicken that is sold on the Good Chop website comes from farms in Nebraska and Iowa. They are fed naturally with corn and soybean meal.
They never have antibiotics, growth stimulants, or any by-product in their feed.
The free-range chickens are never caged and run around in climate-controlled barns.
The two options to order from the Good Chop chicken menu are:
- Chicken breast
- Chicken thights
The Good Chop seafood is sourced from two sources. Wild Caugh and Farm-raised. Both fish will never receive artificial coloring, hormones, or antibiotics.
The seafood menu contains the following:
- Wild caught Alaskan sock-eye Salmon
- Wild caught Pacific Cod
- Wild Caugh Rockfish
Good Chop Shipping
After you have placed your order you will receive tracking information so you can see when your package will arrive.
Depending on your area your shipment will be delivered on Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday.
If you are not home the delivery will be dropped off wherever you have specified on the delivery instructions you did while ordering.
Packaging is recyclable and the dry ice will evaporate.
Your order will arrive frozen or still cold enough (below 40 F) to refreeze. If your box needs to be left outside make sure it does not stay there too long for the best quality.
Good Chop – Unboxing and Cooking
I received a box from Good Chop and took some pictures of unboxing and cooking the Flat Iron Steaks.
The box arrived a day later than planned early in the morning and the content was solid frozen. So, all we had to do was put it in the freezer and decide on what to cook first.
The packaging is of excellent quality and kept the meat frozen even after that extra day on the road.
What came in the Good Chop box?
- Flat Iron steaks
- Pork chops
- Ribeye steaks
- Ground beef
Looking at the flat iron steak I decided to go for that one first.
Grilling A Good Chop Flat Iron Steak
I did not season the steak so I could taste the meat better and just added some homemade herb butter on top after cooking.
I grilled the flat iron steak for about 4 minutes on each side and I could have done a little less to keep them medium-rare. After that I let them rest for about 5 minutes.
The meat tasted great and was as tender as can be. Even my 92-year-old mother-in-law had no problem eating this flat iron steak.
Don’t just look at my experience with the Good Chop. Here is a video I found that comes up with the same result.
Good Chop Review – My Opinion
Although a fairly new company this new kid on the block is starting the right way with good quality meat.
Their meat is sourced from American sources and to keep up in this business you can not skimp on quality.
After cooking some of their meats I can only mention that the quality is excellent.
Have a good look at their website and see what will fit your needs and taste.
