  • Grass fed beef. How to get it to taste good.

    Any ideas? I googled and all I could come up with is to not overcook it and let it stand. I love rare meat but that's how I cooked the last GF steak and, to be honest, it was super bland.

    I just joined a local CSA and my first box comes tomorrow. Lots of organic veggies, fruit, coffee. Also bought organic chicken at a better price than WF. And, some GF ground beef (will doctor up with coconut milk and spices) and a rib eye and a NY strip.

    Would marinating help??

    Thanks.

    Sorry- I love the flavor of grassfed beef, so I'm not sure why you feel it's bland. Most people think it has a stronger flavor, not a weaker one. Try again?

      Your steak was bland? If it's a thick steak stick it in the oven for a little at 350 F and then pan fry it on high for a few minutes. If it's thin just pan fry it on high. Load it with salt and some pepper. Steak is one of the easiest things to make. Best steak I ever have is the ones I cook myself.

      Really flavoring is up to you. I just made up my own taco seasoning + cream with my 1 lb grass fed ground beef, added an onion, jalapeno, bell pepper, tomato. It was amazing.

          I dunno. The last GF steak I had was from WF so maybe the CSA steak will be better. Thanks.

            PS
            The grassfed ground beef always comes out great! I do up my own seasoning and, delish. Did meatballs this week with coconut milk and garlic, cumin, etc. Unreal!

                CSA = Community Supported Agriculture. It's much less money than Farmers Markets (at least where I live, out at the absolute edge of suburbia bordering on wilderness) and the quality is great

                WF = Whole Foods (or Whole Paycheck, as some like to call it)

                  I've mentioned this before in another thread, but here's how I do it.
                  The recipe for a perfect steak:
                  Melt half a stick of butter
                  pour in some lowry's (experiment to get it to your liking)
                  mix
                  brush butter/lowry's mix onto steak
                  place steak on (previously) lit grill (char-coal of course)
                  remove steak when cooked medium
                  insert steak into pie hole
                  thank me later


                  note: if steak is cooked any more than medium, that poor cow died for no reason

                    Haha. No lie there. Love it super rare. That sounds great (love butter on anything). Dinner tomorrow!

                      That's actually what I'm having tomorrow too. I'll throw sweet potatoes in foil and grill those too, then add butter and cinnamon. I also like a little horseradish on the side with my steaks.

                        Seasoning steaks well helps with flavor, though I agree with others who have said grass-beef tastes better. My favorite ground beef recipe is to cook diced onion and garlic in beef tallow /marrow, then add ground grass-fed beef and brown it. Salt and pepper well, add a cup or two of bone broth and boil down. Add heavy cream and adjust seasonings. Pour over mashed cauliflower or potatoes. I like it over anything really -sautéed greens or other veggies too.

                          I'd steer clear of the Lawry's. Sugar, Cornstarch, "natural flavors" and something to promote freshness and deter clumps (can't remember exactly what off the top of my head...)

                          go BUCK wild with sea salt, freshly ground pepper, garlic, seasonings... it may take some getting used to, but once you do.... wow... mmm... I need to go eat a steak now.

                              The thing about grassfed beef that got me and others was that it smells like fish. You start frying up some grassfed beef and usually it smells like you are having fish for dinner. I think perhaps its an acquired taste/deprogramming from what we have learned to expect from beef. But bland? Never gotten that comment before.
