Played with a simple dip, coat, and fry yesterday. Came out great and shouldn't be an issue. Was trying to over-complicate. Now to keep the guys from overcooking or worse, undercooking.   Thanks for the guidance.

Try Gordon Food Service. I know they are delivering in the Chicago area. They have a line of all natural beef as well as natural chicken and I believe pork as well. I am not sure at all about the turkey, veal or lamb. No hormones, steroids or antibiotics 300 days before slaughter on the beef. Its not Niman Ranch but it is a step in the right direction with a reasonable price. All items are stock items. Since they are the 4th largest broadline supplier in the...
You have absolutely nothing to lose. The universe rewards action.
