GoDirect Foods – Enter for a chance to win chicken for a year!


GoDirect-Review-Giveaway

GoDirect Foods Review

I’m very excited to tell you about a new company, GoDirect Foods, coming to a Northwest community near you this spring. GoDirect Foods is offering high-quality meat products, like chicken and beef, for low prices – delivered on a regular basis, all year long.

There are some other competing companies right now offering meat with this type of business model and GoDirect is setting itself apart, by offering these commitments:

  • More product selection and more size variation (for example choose ground beef in 1-lb, 5-lb, 10-lb packages)
  • Option to order your favorite products EVERY month (not randomly).
  • Know your delivery dates for the whole year – so you can plan!
  • Receive your product within 30 days from the time you order – again, easier to plan!
  • Have all your products delivered in the same delivery – instead of separate pick-up dates/times/locations
  • Cash referral program – so when you refer your friends, you earn cash!

I’m excited about the differences with GoDirect - especially being able to order as frequently as monthly and to know what the delivery schedule is for the year – this helps me plan how much to order. I also like the option to buy in smaller packages – especially for things like ground beef.

JC, the owner of GoDirect Foods, reached out to me about the launch of GoDirect Foods – and asked me if I wanted to sample the product. I’ve worked with JC before, so I was excited to see what he would be offering with GoDirect Foods.


You can watch this video to learn more. If the video doesn’t display for you, see it here.

JC personally stopped by my house and brought me two GoDirect Foods products to sample – a 12-ish pound beef roast and 10 pounds of 85/15 ground beef. 

Go-Direct-Food-Blackstone-Roasts

Let’s start with the beef roast. Oh my goodness – what a treat this was for our family. The first thing I want to say is how EASY this roast is to make. It comes pre-cooked and marinating in sealed bag of delicious flavor (inside another bag for a clean, food safe environment). I preheated the oven per the instructions, opened the bag and put the roast and accompanying liquid into my dutch oven and popped it into the oven for recommended cooking time (I think it was a little under 2 hours).

Go-Direct-Review-Roast-Cooking

It came out of the oven as the juiciest, most flavorful roast I’ve ever made at home. This is no exaggeration. All I did was preheat the oven, dump meat and juice into dutch oven and cook for a couple hours. That was it.

Go-Direct-Foods-Review-Beef-Pot-Roast

It sliced like a champ and melted in our mouths. The kids couldn’t get enough of it. I used some of the Au Jus (juice from the meat) to make a gravy and served it up with mashed potatoes.

Go-Direct-Pot-Roast-Review-Cook

It felt like a special occasion dinner – without a bunch of fuss and hassle. It was easier than most of my crockpot meals. No joke!

Slow-Cooker-Beef-Barley-Stew

I took some of the leftover roast and made a delicious batch of Slow Cooker Beef and Barley stew. This roast meat and the juices made the most flavorful soup. I will definitely order this roast again. The ease of cooking it and the flavor was better than anything I’ve made at home.

And now let me tell you about the ground beef. GoDirect Foods offers many options of ground beef – so you can order the type you like. It will also be available in a variety of packaging sizes – as small as 1-pound packages – which I was so excited to hear because I just can’t stomach the big 20-40 pound chubs of ground beef – it’s too much for me to handle without getting queazy. So I think I’ll be ordering the smaller packaging options – making it easy to freeze without a bunch of prep ahead of time. GoDirect also offers the beef at various lean levels – as lean as 93/7 – but more fat content if you prefer (at lower prices).

Go-Direct-Burgers-Review-Gouda

For this particular review, I tried out the 85/15 ground beef. Now usually I purchase leaner beef – but I was really impressed with how good this beef tasted. It came in a 5-pound package. I mixed up some of the beef with eggs, bread crumbs, seasonings – for hamburgers.  We topped with a gouda cheese. . .

Go-Direct-Ground-Beef-review-burger

Then because we like to take our burgers “up a notch” we also added sautéed mushrooms, sautéed onions, avocado, lettuce, mustard and pickles.  Can’t wait to make these again soon. The beef did not taste greasy – but retained it’s juiciness – something I’m very picky about.

I was really impressed with the two GoDirect Foods products I tried. I have full confidence in JC and the products he’s delivering through GoDirect Foods and I think you will be, too!

I can’t wait to try out the chicken – which is coming this spring. Along with an official launch and more details on pricing and delivery dates.

Rise and Shine April 16 – Towel sets, Helly Hansen rain boots, All You magazine, Estee Lauder, Bearpaw and more!


Rise-Shine-queen-bee-2015-january

Rise and Shine is my way of sitting down and having a cup of coffee with you! We talk about the new deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help us save time, money or energy. Published Monday through Friday – as I’m able. 

Good morning! How’s your day going today? Is your week going well? I’m up to my eyeballs in garage sale stickers and cannot wait to be done with my garage sale this weekend! It always sounds like a good idea and then it gets a little overwhelming the day before. :) Can anyone relate?

Olympia-weather-April-17

Do you have any fun plans this weekend? The weather here in the Pacific Northwest is supposed to be MAGNIFICENT! Please tell me if you plan to get outside and enjoy it! And if you live somewhere else in the country, I’d love to hear from you, too.

Last night for dinner we picked up a rotisserie chicken and had salads – fancy stuff. :) So easy! If you’re going to buy a convenience food I think rotisserie chickens might rank as one of the best in terms of offering a solid protein that can be used in a variety of meals, plus you can make chicken broth with the carcass! I prefer Costco’s rotisserie chickens – but sometimes it’s just easier to get one from the neighborhood grocery store. What’s your favorite recipe with rotisserie chickens?
