Cooking Grass Fed Beef

June 4, 2021 • 0 comments

Grass fed animals eat only grass and hay, their beef is noticeably leaner. We recommend you follow these tips for cooking: Do not overcook...


  • High heat, moderate duration for steaks and low heat, long duration (225 for up to 8 hours) for roasts. Both methods accomplish the same goal: breakdown of sinew, fat and collagen to yield a tender, moist cut of beef.

  • It is a good idea to marinate steaks. Don't cook to medium-well or well-done. If you usually cook your steaks longer, try cooking them medium-rare. If you are a die-hard well-done fan, sear before grilling.

  • Cook burgers slow with low heat.

  • Sear roasts and less tender cuts before roasting or grilling. This locks in the moisture for more flavour and tenderness.

  • Since grass-fed beef is extremely low in fat, coat with virgin olive oil or a favourite oil for flavour enhancement and easy browning. The oil will also prevent drying and sticking.

  • Use tongs to turn meat, never a fork - you don't want to lose precious moisture!

  • Don't serve immediately. Let sit loosely covered at least 5 minutes before serving. This allows moisture to be redistributed in the beef.

  • Don't defrost or cook in the microwave, which will change the texture and flavour and reduce tenderness.
