So often, we get tons of questions about the quality of our beef, exact farming practices or how a consumer can expect our beef to taste. If you’ve been raised on conventionally farmed grocery store beef, that’s to be expected. Today we’re here to answer some FAQs about grass-fed beef. Visit our website for even more information.

1. Is grass-fed beef tough?

No, not at all! It’s true that grass-fed beef is leaner than conventional beef. It also contains less fat and marbling than your typical grocery store steak. However, the lack of marbling doesn’t affect how juicy the cooked steak will be. You can still expect all the flavor of your favorite ribeye in grass-fed beef.

2. Grass-fed beef is hard to cook.

It’s true that grass-fed beef should be cooked differently than grain-fed beef, but that doesn’t make it hard to do. We recommend cooking our grass-fed beef low and slow, that is, on a lower temperature and for a longer period of time. To avoid flare-ups, you can soak a rag in cooking oil and rub directly on the grates of the grill. And don’t cook that steak beyond medium-doneness (we recommend medium-rare for the best flavor).

3. Grass-fed beef is expensive.

If you’ve read our other blogs, you should know that grass-fed beef isn’t expensive, it’s that conventional beef prices are manipulated to be cheap due to poor farming practices and artificial growth hormones. It’s easy to save money on grass-fed beef while getting a delicious and nutritious meal. We also recommend shopping local at Dark Hammock Legacy Ranch for all your grass-fed beef needs. Local ranches will be able to provide you with the best prices and service; in addition, you’re supporting your local economy!
