AJ's Has The Best Meat

We've talked before about our favorite supermarket in Arizona--AJ's Fine Foods--but we were in Phoenix last week and...Wow! We were blown away by their meat counter (and not only because they sell Estancia beef).

AJ's butchers and buyers are the best in the business. They listen to their customers and understand the value of grass-fed, pasture-raised beef. Talking with the meat managers at AJ's reminded us of this clip from our man Anthony Bourdain's show, No Reservations, when the galloping gourmet visited Uruguay and raved about the meat he ate. At one point he talks about the "miasma of meatness" wafting off a traditional Uruguayan parilla. Well played, Bourdain!
