Maybe you’ve heard that grass-fed beef is tougher than conventional beef. If it’s been cooked incorrectly, that can absolutely be true. We’ll teach you how to ensure that doesn’t happen.
Grass-fed beef is typically leaner than conventional beef. That’s because the grass-fed cows get to roam and naturally move much more than their grain-fed counterparts. This gives their muscles more integrity and structure.
Another interesting difference in grain-fed and grass-fed cows is that most grain-fed beef (of the same cut) may seem very similar. With grass-fed cows, you may be able to spot more differences in meat of the same type of cut among different areas of the country or different breeds of cow. This gives the customer a more unique experience. Read more about the differences between grass-fed and grain-fed beef on our website.
That being said, it’s important when cooking grass-fed beef to customize your tactics to the piece of meat itself. In general though, we like to cook our meat so it has a nice, caramelized crust, then continue cooking it at a lower temperature until desired doneness. It’s recommended for most cuts to cook them until medium-rare or medium-doneness. Your desired finished cooking temperature should be around 120 – 135 degrees Fahrenheit. Remember to let your meat rest for five minutes before carving and serving.
As for spices, we like to keep it simple. Feel free to change it up and personalize according to the cut or the piece of meat itself, but we like to use a nice mix of salt, pepper, garlic, and cook it all up with some butter. Got any other favorites?
