Fast Food Meat Doesn't Have to Be Pink Slime

Chipotle may be almost single-handedly responsible for the booming demand in this country for pastured, antibiotic-free meats.
In fact, this year, Chipotle, which is growing so quickly that it's opening about three new locations each week, will slowly braise and sell about 120 million pounds of naturally raised pork, chicken and beef that meets its antibiotic-free standards.
Yep: The most Paleo fast food chain in the U.S. is kind of awesome. (Now if they'd only stop cooking everything (except the carnitas) with soybean oil...)

Useless trivia: The "braised" meat at Chipotle is cooked sous vide. And if you don't know what that means, you need to start reading my wife's blog.
