Tips for cooking Grass Fed meats

 

Grass-fed meat cooks differently from grain-fed meat.
It is best when cooked at a lower temperature and slowly simmered in a liquid.
Marinating the meat for an hour or more in the refrigerator helps to tenderize the meat.
The fibers are thus broken down and become succulent.
You can tell when the meat is cooked because the pieces will break up with a fork.
Because of the this method of cooking, using a slow cooker/crock pot is an excellent way to prepare meals.

Keep your meat frozen until you are ready to use it. Thaw it completely before cooking.
When defrosting place the vacuum-packed cut in the refrigerator overnight.
If you are in a hurry, place the package in a bowl of cool water.
Never use warm water. Do not defrost in the microwave.

When grilling, keep basting with a marinade throughout grilling to add moisture. Use tongs not forks to turn the meat.
This allows the natural juices to remain in the meat.  Leave the lid down on the grill.

Let your beef rest 10 minutes before slicing.  This allows the juices to circulate back to the meat.

    I purchased a hanger steak from you on Saturday at the Sparta Farmer’s Market. I marinated it overnight and cooked it last night for dinner. It was so delicious. Thank you.

    I ordered the hanger skirt steak Sunday July 5 2015. It was delicious. Marinated for one hour full of flavor. It was smooth like butter. Can’t wait for next week Sunday to purchase more.

    Thanks

    Hi my name is Treecy. I’m interested in your grass fed meats. I’m new at this and needed to know if I can pick up an order from your farm. I live in Beemerville so it’s pretty convenient for me. If I could place a weekly or biweekly order with you that would be great.

    Thank you
    Treecy
