Say Hello To Eric Besselman, Heinen’s Meat Merchandiser

What is your favorite cut of meat?
Strip steak. It’s like my birthday meal.

Do you cook?
No, not really. I grill a lot in the summertime. But my wife is a phenomenal cook and she loves to do it.

What book are you reading right now?Eric Besselman Heinen's Meat Director
“Eat Yourself Super”, Dr. Todd Pesek. I want to understand that side of the business. I really believe that you are what you eat. When I have a donut I feel like crap.

Is there something that you eat or drink every day, like a ritual?
I have coffee in the morning and I eat oatmeal most days, but I’m telling you, I eat anything. I love breakfast. I can have it for dinner!

As someone who knows so much about all things meat, what is one of the most FAQs you receive?
How do I cook it? I always ask them follow-up questions. Is it for a party? What kind of dinner are you doing? Do you need something quickly? You need to know what they’re trying to accomplish and you go from there.
