Best mail-order beef gift sets with prime reviews

Until recently if you wanted to buy the best quality steak you were severely limited by where you lived.

Luckily we are now spoilt for choice, with a range of specialty butcher shops delivering restaurant-quality steak online.

Even if you live in a small city, these online butchers deliver steak to your door anywhere in the continental United States.

We’ve rounded up the best mail order steak companies in the country for buying steak (and a range of other meats) online.

1. Snake River Farms – Top Pick

Snake River Farms is a family-owned business Idaho whose meat is used by Michelin-star restaurants.


Luckily for us, they also sell directly to the public via their website.

Their claim to fame is their American Wagyu beef, which comes from crossbreeding imported Wagyu cattle with American Angus.

Their beef is rated higher than USDA Prime (the best grade you’re ly to find).

You can choose from a huge variety of cuts but you can’t go wrong ordering the American Wagyu Ribeye fillet, the new york strip or the filet mignon.

They also sell top-quality Wagyu beef brisket and Kurobuta pork.

2. Porter Road – Runner Up

They guys aren’t just a mail-order steak company. Porter Road is a full online butcher, selling a large range of beef, pork, chicken, and lamb.

Their meat is sourced from small family farms in Kentucky and Tennessee before it is cut and dry-aged for a minimum of 14 days at their facilities in Kentucky.


All beef is pasture-raised and hormone and antibiotic free.

Their meat is also quite a bit more affordable than Snake River Farms, making Porter Road a great choice if you want to treat yourself without breaking the bank.

You can shop from over 50 different cuts of beef, but you can’t go wrong with the bone-in ribeye.

You can also let Porter Road do the meat shopping for you with one of their curated meat boxes.

They are also focused on sustainability and ensure all meat is humanely raised.

They currently offer free shipping on orders over $100 and free dry aged ground beef on orders over $75.

3. Holy Grail Steak Company – Best for Wagyu

Read our full Holy Grail Steak Company review.


Until recently it was impossible to buy legitimate, authentic Kobe Beef in America.

This is no longer true.

Holy Grail Steak Company’s mission is to give everyone access to best available, world-class steaks that were once only available in Michelin-star restaurants.

You can learn all about the difference between Wagyu and Kobe beef here.

You can shop from a range of artisanal American producers including USDA prime Black Angus beef as well as an impressive selection of American and Japanese Wagyu and Kobe beef.

If you really want to treat yourself they have a few collection boxes, including the ‘God of the Grill Collection‘. With a staggering $499 price tag you get eight of the best steaks you’ve ever eaten.

4. Crowd Cow – Best for Grass-Fed Beef


Read our full Crowd Cow review.

Have you ever wandered the meat section of your local grocery store, and wondering where the meat comes from and why it costs so much?

That’s what gave co-founder Ethan the idea for Crowd Cow.

Crowd Cow acts as a market place to buy high quality meat from farms and ranches around the world.

The folks at Crowd Cow meet with farm and ranch owners, and then work with a select few.

You can shop by the cut of meat, and then select which farm you want to buy that cut from.

You can read more about each farm and its philosophy of raising meat.

For example, if you want to order the Bone-in Ribeye steak you can choose pasture raised, grain finished black Angus beef from Washington State or grass fed Wagyu from Birney Montana (among several overs).

Crowd Cow sell a good range of grass-fed beef, but it’s also worth learning more about the different methods of raising animals. I learnt that grass-fed and then grain-finished can be an excellent approach.

The price varies quite a lot from farm to farm, so make sure you shop around.

Your meat order is frozen at peak freshness, vacuum-sealed and shipped in biodegradable, recyclable packaging.

There’s a lot more than just beef available. You can also grab wild Alaskan Salmon, American lamb, chicken, and pork.

You can also order authentic Wagyu steak from Kagoshima Farms in Japan.

6. Chicago Steak Company

Omaha Steaks, the Chicago Steak Company has been around for generations and also offers a lot more than the name suggests.

You can order fish, chicken, pork, roasts, burgers and of course steak.


The main focus is dry aged USDA Prime steak, which represents the top 2% of all beef consumed.

All steaks are sourced from Mid-West raised heritage cattle, and then aged for four to six weeks.

You can order both wet-aged and dry-aged steak, depending on your preferences.

Cuts the premium Angus filet mignon have been aged for 4-6 weeks and are graded top one-third USDA Choice or higher.

They also sell a range of American Wagyu.

4. Omaha Steaks

Starting all the way back in 1929 Omaha Steaks is the oldest company to grace our list of steak delivery services.

If you thought meat delivery was a modern invention that required any fancy technology, you would be incorrect.

Omaha Steaks started delivering mail order steaks all the way back in 1953 so it’s fair to say they know what they are doing. Only in more recent years have we started to see more Omaha steak alternatives pop up.

Despite having steak in the name, you can buy a huge range of meat, seafood, appetizers, desserts and even wine off their website.

Their gift baskets have also gained a reputation.

All meat is flash frozen, vacuum packed and shipped with dry ice in a styrofoam cooler. You can also get a phone and email alert to let you know when your meat has been delivered.

The catalog is huge, but the 30-day dry aged bone-in ribeye and new york strip are great options for steak lovers, as is the 21-day aged filet mignon.

If you really want to treat yourself upgrade to the private reserve Wagyu.

16 Mail Order Steak Companies That Do Meat Right

Best mail-order beef gift sets with prime reviews

While apple pie gets all the good press as being the patron food of the United States, the truth is that steak is what comes to mind when you think of a really pleasurable piece of Americana.

Steak is one of the greatest pleasures, but with the demand for beef growing all the time, getting a good steak is more and more difficult.

If you don’t live near a premium butcher, you’re stuck taking whatever fatty, sloppy castoff cuts the grocery store feels putting out. Unless you go the mail order route.

Ordering meat through the mail means you’re going to pay for it sight unseen. You could easily lose money this way and get an inferior piece of beef that is tainted with disease. To save your dollars and cents, as well as rescue your palette from horrific cuts of gristle and fat, we did the gustatory research to find the 16 best companies for mail order steaks of any size and shape.


DeBragga Dry-Aged Steak Sliced on Mashed Potatoes

Heisenberg: DeBragga isn’t the steak dealer where you get your basic gamy New York Strip. They’re the top dog of the organization.

Formerly a supplier strictly for steak-houses, they now will send out the same meat you’d get from a 5-star restaurant right to your home. Just choose and be satisfied.

Lobel’s Prime Filet Mignon: Cut from the supremely tender and mild tenderloin

Old Hat: Lobel’s caters to the most refined tastes, offering only USDA high prime cuts, veal, Wagyu beef, lamb, and pork. Each steak is dry aged for 4-6 weeks to allow flavors to truly explode. This is a can’t miss company that stands behind everything they send out.

American West Beef

Filet Mignon: Cut from the heart of the tenderloin, and aged an average of 18 days

Sizable Donation: Not only can you find several steaks through American West that you won’t find anywhere else, they tend to be a little more generous with their sizes. You’ll be able to get a unique cut that’s marinated for ages that is also built for a bull-sized appetite.

Omaha Steaks

Omaha’s Famous Filet Mignons with Stuffed Baked Potatoes for a great main course

Pick & Choose: A wonderful, full-service meat supplier, Omaha has more than just incredible grain-fed steaks. Lobster, bison, even wine and dessert are all offered via the postman. They’ll even help you choose which wine will pair with your filet mignon. Short of wiping your chin, they do it all.


D’Artagnan Wagyu Beef Ribeye Steak, Bone-In

Sustainable Food: D’Artagnan respects free range meat grown on sustainable farms; which is why it is all they use.

For as good as their beef selection is – and it’s nothing shy of legendary – the quail, duck, and the truffles are what really caught our eye (and tongue).

Pat LaFrieda

LaFrieda dry aged beef – up to 70 days expertly aged beef available online

Flannery Beef

California Reserve Dry Aged “Jorge” Cut Ribsteak

Simple Pleasures: Flannery is a small San Francisco operation that’s been operating since 1968. They don’t do much more than Wagyu and Prime beef along with some lamb, but they do those things with such professionalism – using only their favorite slabs – that it’s worth going back again and again.

Niman Ranch

Niman Ranch’s tri tip (or bottom sirloin roast)

Start to Finish: Niman Ranch prepares their steaks while it’s still on the hoof. With a hands-on approach to raising their cattle, they only choose cuts that they would put on their own plates, giving you steaks that show the care that went into raising and breeding the cows as much as butchering and caring for the meat.

Snake River Farms

American Kobe Wagyu Gold Grade Eye of Ribeye Roast

Clearing the Bar: While others brag about having Prime Wagyu beef, Snake River Farms carries Gold level, which is a step above prime. All their items come from cattle raised in the Pacific Northwest and each steak is marbled a Greek column standing in the nation’s capital.

Creekstone Farms

Creekstone Farms – His & Hers Steak Variety Packages

Total Transparency: Creekstone doesn’t specialize in steaks, but you’d never know it to bite into any of their offerings.

They don’t have specialties, since at any given time their inventory changes, but through their Beef 101 information, in which they explain more than you ever wanted to know about meat quality, you can always find something worthy of your grill.

Greensbury Market

Greensbury Market: Organic grass-fed NY Strip

Eco-Warriors: The Market itself works hand in glove with local farms to bring you completely organic, naturally-grown, sustainable food whether it’s grass-fed prime rib or thick, organic salmon. They’ll tell you where everything came from, and what went into your dinner (hint: It’s usually nothing.)

Fossil Farms

Strange Tastes: The standard Fossile Farms steak comes from grass-fed cows and is more than enough to put a smile on your face, but the real story is the variety. Kangaroo steak, alligator, and just about anything that’s legal to kill is on their menu. If you exotic, Fossil is for you.

Heritage Foods USA

Seasoned NY strip steaks from Heritage Foods USA

The Whole Package: Even if you have a butcher shop you , Heritage stocks something that will beat them; whether it’s their lamb, their turkey, or their glorious bison. Where they really shine is with an unusual meat: goat. Using kids birthed to make their mothers produce milk, Heritage has found a flavor that’s well worth smoking up for a vacation from the ordinary.

Allen Brothers

Dry Aged Berkshire Pork Chops (left), USDA Prime Bone-In Heart Of Rib Roast (right)

Professional Grade: Even through mail, you’re still going to be getting consumer grade steak with most companies, which is slightly less than most restaurants. With the Allen Brothers of Chicago, you’re going to get true gourmet cuts of prime rib, Wagyu, and tenderloin, among others; dry aged and delectable.

Butcher Box

Butcher Box : The all beef box features 3-5 cuts of 100% grass-fed beef

Rookie: Relatively new on the scene, Butcher Box has nonetheless made a name for itself as one of the heavy hitters in the mail order meat industry.

It’s a subscription service that has won awards for not only the provided flesh, but also for easy navigation and ordering. Their system is simple and elegant, dropping a set of beautiful items on your doorstep each month, no re-ordering required.


Raw lamb chops from Kutbox

Underdog: Socially and environmentally conscious, KutBox works with small, family-owned farms around the United States to come up with some of the most remarkable meats we’ve ever tasted. Before being bought and slaughtered, each animal passes a real veterinary inspection that must state the animal was healthy for its whole life. If not, KutBox doesn’t touch it.
