When you've got a low-carb diet in the works for the new year, one of the biggest indulgences you can get away with is some really tender, juicy meat. Interestingly enough, we have found that ordering through Omaha Steaks has been the easiest and most economical way to do a low-carb diet! With steaks at New York supermarkets like Gristedes' and D'Agostino's being 16 bucks a pound and up, Omaha Steaks actually offer better bang for the buck--plus they delivery directly to your door in those cool, insulated styrofoam boxes. I like to thaw out their meat in my fridge for at least 15 hours before preparing, so that it cooks faster and comes out more tender.
My all-time OS favorite is the classic six ounce Beef Tenderloin (Filet Mignon), which cost $89.99 for eight right now. You can also get a five-ounce size if you want to keep your portions in check or buy these tender filets with bacon wrapped around them (hey, this kind of rich eating works on a low carb diets!). One of the beautiful things about Omaha Steaks is that everything is in a precut exact portion size, so you know exactly how much you are eating. This is a real blessing for dieters who don't want to weigh and measure all the time. Their Ultimate Chicken Burgers (sometimes priced as low as $17.99 for eight four-ounce burgers in a box when they're "Today's Featured Item" but usually go for $49.00) and Chicken Breasts (four 4-ounce portions for $23.99) are pre-portioned into plastic packages that you just peel back and let stay in the freezer for six months to a year without getting any freezer burn. (Now, that's much better than packing up and freezing meat yourself!)
