Packages of meat from Trader Joe's
5 Meats At Trader Joe's You Should Buy And 4 To Avoid
Buy: Italian Sausage
TJ's sweet Italian sausage made with pork is $6.49. The sausages have no added hormones or antibiotics and the meat is packed in a natural pork casing.
Avoid: Gyro Slices
The cooked gyro slices are $4.69 for an 8-ounce pack. They aren’t bad, but when the cost of other ingredients is added, it’s the same price as a gyro sandwich.
Buy: Shawarma Chicken
The shawarma chicken thighs are flavorful and juicy. The marinade includes onion, garlic, sea salt, cumin, cinnamon, cilantro, paprika, turmeric, and parsley.
Avoid: Herbed Chicken
The herbed chicken thighs are marinated in basil, cilantro, mint, garlic, lemon peel, chili peppers, and an umami sauce. Nothing about them stands out.
Buy: Ground Beef
Trader Joe's offers a range of ground beef with various lean-to-fat ratios. The all-natural beef is minimally processed and raised with no antibiotics or hormones.
