Partner: Ozark Pasture Beef
Size/Unit(s): 1-1.25 lb
Description: Our cattle and sheep are fed 100% forage year round and nothing else. No grain or grain by products are fed, and no hormones or antibiotics are ever given. Grass-fed beef is leaner, will have more flavor, and more intense aroma than typical commodity beef. Fat in meat acts as an insulator during the cooking process helping to keep natural meat juices from cooking away and preserve moisture. Grass-fed beef being leaner needs a little more attention when cooking in order to maintain its tenderness and juiciness. The flavor of grass-finished beef can be more intense, more of that, good, old-fashioned beef flavor that we were used to growing up on the farm. The aroma of grass-finished beef is also more intense, after thawing, prior to cooking; you may experience a stronger beef odor than you are accustomed to with commodity beef. This is typical of natural, grass-finished beef, the meat is much more delicate, much like fine wine, and will release some of its essence when thawed. A sheet of cooking suggestions is available with your order and additional recipes are available also- be sure to know how to properly prepare your meat for a wonderfully delicious and healthy dish!
Notes: All meat prices are per pound, actual price will vary depending on weight of package.
