How much do butchers charge for an entire cow? My husband is on a medication that causes him to be borderline anemic so we've upped his red meat. I don't have much experience with it though. He thinks we can consume an entire cow (cut up and frozen of course) in six months. I think he's gone off the deep end! More like six years for me. The best news he has gotten in a long time is that he's slightly anemic and can up is red meat, I don't cook red meat but twice a month, now we're up to three times a week.

I went with the rib meat; they're nice and marbled. I'm going to sear it with flour, salt and pepper in olive oil, then use a little beef stock to scrape up the bottom bits. Then will toss it in a crock pot to cook with about 8 cups of beef stock (hope that's not too much), the rib meat, can of mushroom soup, two diced large potatoes, green beans, onion, onion soup mix, garlic, and mushrooms 6 to 8 hours tomorrow. Hope it turns out; thanks for the ideas.

You could try "liver pills" (pill size cut up bits of liver stored in the freezer) to get more iron in him. I know this seems a bit weird in concept, but it's great in practice! I don't care for liver at all except in small amounts of pate on occasion, but this way is great and you don't have to actually taste it.

This is a neat idea, I never knew this existed. I was going to try to find a way to 'sneak' liver into his diet while he's on these medications because its about the number one natural source of iron (and he refuses it). I personally love cooked liver, I grew up in it. I would feel weird about the rawness, though. Thank you for the tip.

You could cook it if you're weirded out by the rawness, but it will lose some of its goodness. I don't think you'd lose enough to make it not worthwhile though. You could cook and then purée it similar to a pate then freeze and chop it into little pieces then put it back in the freezer again. Give it a try!

Milo is extremely high in iron.

It is also crunchy and delicious and easily absorbed.

I worked with a girl who had chronic anemia due to stomach problems and her doctor told her to have a mug of milo every day. It worked wonders.

I loved Milo growing up. It pains me greatly that it's made by Nestle so I won't buy it anymore.

Beef shank will give the heartiest beef flavor. It lends itself to long and slow moist heat - a process that is designed for tougher cuts.

Add quite a bit of red wine while cooking the beef for the stew.

Red wine goes really well with cream of mushroom soup and dry onion soup mix. I would add a 1/2 cup of burgundy wine.
