    Grass-fed ground beef gross?

    Shop Now
    You know how corn-fed ground beef is pretty much all the undesired parts or meat slightly gone bad all ground together? Is it as equally disgusting for grass-fed?

    Ground beef is the meat that doesn't make it into a steak or brisket, yeah, and is often shaved off bones, and often contains offal. But to be honest, that is what makes it yummy, grass fed or otherwise

    But to answer your question, grass fed and non-grass fed ground beef is made the exact same way, and has the same amount of goodness (or badness) in it.

    I don't know where you shop, but I would stop shopping there.

    There shouldn't be any offal in ground beef. It should only be the scrap muscle meat.

    Buy a steak and have them grind it. Problem solved. Ground beef doesn't contain offal. You basically have various grinds... ground chuck, around the neck/shoulder area (tends to be fattier), ground round (towards the end of the cow rump region), a little leaner and then you have ground sirloin which is essentially a sirloin steak all ground up (very lean). I seriously doubt any reputable store puts bad or older meat in there... but I could be wrong!

    Lol, I wish. I'd rather eat it as a steak for $12/lb instead of opting for ground steak over the $5/lb ground beef xP

    Well, I don't personally care if it contains offal. In fact, the more the better. However, I am finding that grass fed beef in general is a bit more chewy. I can deal with it, but hubby prefers grain fed because it is tender.

    Any ideas as to ways to make it tender? I made meatballs with grass fed beef and it was a bit difficult chew-wise. I have two pounds of it in the freezer. What can I do other than adding bread crumbs to make it really tender?

    Try adding butter to the ground beef to add more fat and tenderness. or cook it in bacon grease. The answer to poor flavor or toughness is usually more fat needed.

    I'm getting ground beef with the 1/2 cow that's hanging in the butcher right now... Like was mentioned before, it's only the scrap muscle. The ones that would be too chewy to make into a steak, so they grind it.

    I bought over 10lbs of grass-fed ground beef on sale the other week and its all fine by me. Goes great in omelets and salads, and has high fat content too.
