Omaha Steaks: A Review and Giveaway – NOW CLOSED

CONGRATS to Sue D!

The fun never ends around here. Giveaways galore this week: Frito-Lay Party Pack, Family Feasts for $75/Week, a super cute apron from D-Lux 57, and now Omaha Steaks!

(And I’m not done for the week yet!)

I had never ordered from Omaha Steaks before, but I’d heard great things about them. When they offered to send us some filet mignons to try, I didn’t want to pass it up. Steak is one of my favorite meals. The FishKids’, too.

Last night we served up a mixed grill of chicken and steak with mashed potatoes, green beans, salad, and corn bread. Super yummy. FishChick3 kept asking for more steak. She loved it. I must say, the meat was super tender; you could cut it with a table knife. I enjoyed every bite. The Fisher-men were “okay” with it. Though they appreciated the tenderness, they prefer the flavor of tri-tip more. I’ll give them that. Tri-tip does have a richer flavor than filet mignon.

When Omaha Steaks are shipped, they are packed frozen with dry ice to keep them cool and packaged in a thick styrofoam cooler. Ours arrived super cold, not one bit thawed. You can pop the vacuum packed steaks into the freezer until ready to serve. Then, defrost them overnight in the refrigerator or put them in a pan of cold water for quicker thawing.

I realize that ordering steaks online is probably a luxury for most people. It certainly is for us. I normally buy my meat at the grocery store when it’s on sale. But, if I wanted to send a fancy gift to someone, I would certainly consider this option. I don’t believe there’s anything wrong with spending money on something if you’ve actually got the money to spend. Plus, over the past year, there have been good sales and coupon codes to match up with cash back sites. Ebates is currently offering 6% back while ShopAtHome is giving 7% back on each order.

Omaha Steaks is offering a $50 gift certificate to one LifeasMOM reader. I was surprised at how much is available for under $50. Pop over there and see what looks yummy.

Then come back and enter the giveaway. Leave a comment telling us what you’d pick if you won.

Contest will be open until Sunday night, December 20th at 8 pm, PST. Winner will be chosen randomly. Please make sure I have a way to contact you if you win, such as an email address in your comment.

Disclosure: I received a sample box of steaks to taste and give my unbiased opinion.

  1. The stocking stuffer pack looks awesome!

  2. I would try the signature sampler. yum!

  3. Ah…I would love anything from their site (and in fact, considered getting my husband some steaks for Christmas, but had a hard time shelling out that much money for meat!). However, I think I'd have to go with something like the Bacon-Wrapped Filet of Top Sirloin seen here:

    Merry Christmas!

  4. If I didn't have food intolerances – the Steaks and cake combo. But since I do, I'd take the International :)
    Thanks for your hard work sampling steaks for us and the giveaway!

  9. I bet those steaks were gooood. We like our red meat here, too. And honestly, what's the point of all this frugality if you can't use the money you save for something awesome like a good steak once in a while?

  10. The International combo looks delicious. Thanks for a fun giveaway.

  11. Saving Our Way says:

  14. Amy @ Finer Things says:

    Would it be bad for me to just get cheesecake?! :)

  15. We've given Omaha Steaks packs to our Grandparents the past few Christmases. They LOVE them!! If I won, I'd use the $50 for either the top sirloins or the stocking stuffer combo. Yum!!

  90. I would buy the Steaks and Cake Combo. Yum!!

  91. I think I would get the Bacon wrapped filets! My husband & I rarely eat beef -not because we don't like it but because my 8 year old has a severe beef allergy, so needless to say we would be overjoyed with this prize! :)

  94. The filet mignon feast is what I would pick….the whole meal — all ready except the cooking part. It's a dream come true. My husband will do the cooking part .. I will do the feasting part.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
