Petersen: The triumphant return of red meat

In a magazine, called "Men's Health," writer, Markham Heid, penned a thoughtful article titled: The Triumphant Return of Red Meat. "…research reveals that the evils of beef are a load of bull."

Heid quotes Dariush Mozaffarian, chair of nutrition at Tufts University, who has been researching the subject for 15 years. "…unprocessed red meat — steaks, chops, and other whole cuts — isn't a health villain if you eat it in moderation."

The article lists six cuts of beef, detailing how they're prepared for best flavor. Here's the scrumptious six — in verse form. May be posted on your refrigerator door without guilt.

RIB EYE, an all-American steak,

“Rib eye, an all-American steak, a juicy work of art. Guaranteed to make self-righteous vegetarians barf.”
