About Good Chop

Good Chop is founded on one simple principle: transparency. It’s easy for butchers to claim that this cut or that protein is “American-raised” or “all-natural,” even if those claims aren’t backed up. When Good Chop makes a claim, they mean it.

Good Chop upholds this transparency with every high-quality beef, chicken, pork, and seafood selection they offer. All Good Chop proteins are free from added hormones or antibiotics; beef and pork are fed a vegetarian diet; and all proteins are sourced from local, American farmers and fishermen.

How to Order

It only takes a few minutes to order your first Good Chop box.

To start, go to the Good Chop website and click “View Plans.”

The first thing you’ll see is the two sizes of customizable protein boxes: Medium (6 cuts for $149) and Large (12 cuts for $269). Cooks Venture boxes are priced by size, not by the meat selections themselves, meaning you can select whichever proteins you like without concern of the pricing rising.

After selecting your box size, you’ll find a list of Good Chop’s proteins, divided by protein type. Each product will include a photo of the protein, quantity information (e.g. “1 lb. pack”), and a few identifying features about it, like whether the beef you’re looking at is Angus or Grass-Fed.

Next, you’ll create a Good Chop account (if you don’t already have one) using your email.

Finally, you’ll enter your shipping and payment information. Now, your proteins are on their way!

Shipping and Delivery

Once your Good Chop box arrives (typically a week after ordering), you’ll find that all of your proteins are frozen. Good Chop freezes your proteins for safety and freshness both for safety and freshness; in fact, if kept frozen in your freezer, most Good Chop proteins stay fresh for up to a year.

In the box, you’ll find insulated packaging, your frozen proteins, dry ice, and cooking instructions. The insulated packaging and cardboard box can be recycled, the proteins can be placed in your freezer, and the dry ice can be left in your sink to melt (just be sure to open a window). The cooking instructions will offer you a few important tips for thawing and cooking your proteins, and these pamphlets can be recycled when you’re done with them.

Good Chop makes it easy to receive US-raised, antibiotic-free proteins right to your home. In a completely online process that takes an average of five minutes, you can select your preferred delivery size, customize your protein selection, and order your meats to your preferred address.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

There are a lot of great new meal delivery options available in the market, with each meal service putting their unique twist on an otherwise tried and true model. If you are looking to maximize convenience, you should consider prepared meal plans such as Factor or Tempo, with meals ready to eat in just 3 minutes. If you enjoy cooking but are tired of food waste and grocery shopping, you should consider meal kits such as Home Chef or Hello Fresh, where you can cook recipes from carefully packed, fresh ingredients within 30 minutes. Most services are accommodating, but meal delivery services aren't made equal when it comes to dietary restrictions. Green Chef and Purple Carrot stand out with the widest range of keto, vegan, and organic options. Other factors you will want to consider include cost per serving, delivery fees, cancellation policy, and menu size and flexibility.
There is a tremendous amount of customization you can make to the meal plans available in the market, which creates an almost endless number of options to choose from. The first decision you will need to make is whether you prefer a meal kit plan, where you cook with fresh ingredients, or a prepared meal plan, where your meal prep starts with a partially or fully cooked meal. The next factor you will want to consider is the diet type, with common options including meat, seafood, vegetarian, keto, gluten-free, and more. After you have chosen your meal plan and diet, your plan will be customized based on the number of mouths to feed, the number of meals you want per week, shipping dates, and more.
Prepared meals come in pre-packaged, individual servings that can be popped into the oven or microwave for a quick meal. Meal kits come with pre-measured ingredients and recipe instructions that are simple to follow. In both cases, your meals will be shipped in a well packaged box with an ice pack to keep ingredients fresh until they make it into your fridge.
Meal kits will provide you with pre-measured ingredients that you can quickly cook into a fresh meal. Ingredients will come in individually packaged bags or containers and a recipe card with detailed cooking instructions. Most meal kit recipes can be cooked from start to finish in 30 minutes. On the other hand, prepared meal delivery services will have done some, or all, of the prep work for you to make your cooking as efficient as possible. Some prepared meals can be cooked in the microwave and some will require a few minutes in the oven or stove. In any case, prepared meals are generally ready to eat in less than 5 minutes. Whether you choose a meal kit or a prepared meal, you can expect chef-inspired dishes made with fresh ingredients.
