As the star of The Fowl Life with Chad Belding on the Outdoor Channel and host of The Fowl Life Podcast, Belding is an avid hunter and an almost equally avid weightlifter. He is also the author of a brand new book of fish and game recipes, The Provider Cookbook. With an appreciation for game and optimizing his health, he insists on knowing where his food is coming from. That means every time he picks a ribeye, filet mignon, or a New York strip for dinner, consider the source.
With an appreciation for game and optimizing his health, he insists on knowing where his food is coming from. This means that every time he chooses a steak, he takes the source into account. A ribeye, filet mignon or New York strip for dinner.
"The most important thing about your steaks is that you want to know where they came from," says Belding, a former Division I baseball player at UNLV. "Is it on a farm or is it somewhere I don't know where all these steroids and things I don't want in my body are being injected?"
If you've never put so much thought into which piece of meat you throw on your grill, maybe it is time to be more selective. In the following interview, Belding explains where to go and what to look out for when buying steak.
