Good Meat, Cooked Right

I was looking through Jason's blog at and came across a post about how to cook your grass-fed beef. It cooks a lot differently than the grain-fed beef you buy at the grocery store. Once you follow a few simple tips, you will be on your way to eating the best meat you've ever had! Below is the post with a link to a great article.

5 Ways to achieve grass-fed beef cooking nirvana

We get a lot of questions about how to cook grass-fed meats- especially beef.

The truth is that cooking grass-fed beef is entirely different. When we first began cooking our meats from the first wave of meats that came back from the processor, I was a little disappointed in the tenderness in the beef. Okay….really disappointed.

But, I was treating our wonderfully raised grass-fed grass-finished beef as I would corn-fed feedlot beef.

Once I figured out the cooking technique, I fell in love with our beef (and pork and chicken for that matter). The flavors are rich, the broths are thick, and the texture is just as it should be.

I found this article on Kelly the Kitchen Kop (wonderful site full of great info) to be extremely helpful with a lot of good information and tips on how to cook grass-fed beef.

    I’m no expert, but I do believe that anything permitted to roam and forage in it’s native (natural) habitat can’t be that bad for you. Just my opinion though 😉

    @Arnold, hunted meat within the confines of a small ranch are more likely corn-fed. If the boys hunted deer or elk at Big Bend National Park, then those animals are true foragers eating grass.
