Cooking Suggestions

Grassfed meats taste and need to be cooked a little differently than supermarket meats.   The most important things to remember are to cook the meat at a lower temperature and a slower pace.  Just remember “low and slow.”     It is important not to overcook the meat.  Grassfed meats tend to cook 1/4 to 1/3 faster than supermarket meats so monitor the temperature with a meat thermometer while cooking.  There are many resources online for cooking grassfed beef and also some great recipes.  Here are links to just a couple of our favorites:
