Aleph-Farms-Cultivated-Rib-Eye-Steak

If the thought of a plant-based, 3D printed steak makes you want to run for cattle-covered hills, then take a look at this real beef ribeye created in the lab. Israel-based Aleph Farms, along with the Isreal Institue of Technology, just created the very first ribeye steak cultivated in a laboratory. Ooh, that sounds lip-smackin’ good, right? Well, at least the process and the science of it all are fascinating. The result is thanks to the use of 3D bioprinting of actual living cow cells. The cells grow, differentiate, and then interact with each other as they would in nature. The steak supposedly has the same consistency and flavor as meat directly from a cow. What this does, in effect, is eliminate the need to raise and slaughter cattle for beef production. The technology could theoretically produce various cuts of meat, too, but probably not the Porterhouse.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
