Hungry carnivores should love my honest Butcher Box review! 🥩
We have all been eating at home more than ever and Butcher Box is a convenient way to stock the freezer with high-quality organic meat and fish without leaving the house! Butcher Box is a meat subscription service that delivers frozen meat directly to your door, so you can spend more time and energy cooking fresh, homemade meals instead of grocery shopping.
If you’ve been thinking about trying Butcher Box, this post is for you! Butcher Box sent me a variety box of meat and fish so that I could share my honest Butcher Box review with all of you.
Fans of high-quality, humanly-raised meat will especially be interested in this service!
Butcher Box is known for its variety of 100% grass-fed beef, free-range organic chicken, heritage-breed pork, and wild-caught seafood options. Working with meat processing facilities with the highest standards for quality is the highest priority for Butcher Box. They want to work with partners that believe in fair labor practices and seek partners who treat their employees as part of a team. Sweet!
If sustainably raised meat is important to your family, Butcher Box could be a convenient option to consider!
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 and comes with 9-14 pounds of meat/seafood delivered. You can actually pick from 6 of 25 different cuts of meat to customize your order each month. It breaks down to approximately $4.95 per serving. You can skip a month and choose every other month if desired.

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.
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 Crock-Pot 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.
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 and then sear and cook them a bit further 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!
By the way, leftover steak with eggs is the best! Such a filling breakfast or even lunch idea, and super easy to throw together.
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. 🥓
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.
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!
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.
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 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.
If you enjoy eating grass-fed, organic food that’s raised in a thoughtful way, then Butcher Box 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 healthy meat and fish which makes it worth it! I hope you found my Butcher Box review helpful.
