    Yeah, when I want a stack of fattier ground beef I get it this U.S. Wellness Meats — Our Animals Eat Right So You Can Too.

    When I get it by the cow I get this Beef Bundles

    I bought some grass fed tenderloin a year ago or so when it was a great deal. I didn't really care for the flavor, though.

    Now that I really know the benefits of eating grass fed beef, I am considering buying a half or quarter from a local farm.

    Meanwhile, I decided to just buy a package of grass fed ground beef at the health food store yesterday. Used it to make lunch today... and I still don't like the taste.

    For those of you who have made the switch, how did you handle that? Did you just put on your big kid pants and power through until you got used to it? Did it never bother you to begin with?
    I can't believe this post! My wife and I used to be major beef eaters. We moved to N. Ireland in 1982 and were disgusted by the taste of grass fed beef which was the only beef available there. I recently decided to try grass fed beef and we discovered a farm less than 10 miles away where we can buy 1 lb package of grass fed ground beef which we are going to do to see if we will like it. My wife says we are wasting our time/ money but I will let you know how it turns out.

    If you just eat it every day, you'll get used to the difference in a week or so, and then grain-finished beef will taste funny to you.

    Ha-ha! You let your taste buds tell you what to do! They are there to serve you, not the other way around. I say "BOW BEFORE ME TASTE BUDS, we're going to eat this now - get used to it!".

    I eat it often and didn't notice a real taste difference. I season it with onion, paprika, salt and pepper though. Tonight I threw in a pat of butter which was delicious though it had plenty of fat. I do have to be careful not to overcook it.

    Only once did I buy some grassfed beef and found the taste to be terrible. All other times it has tasted good. Sometimes it's been a bit tough, but I've never had it taste off like that one time. I never ate much beef before this so I can't really compare to regular beef, but once in a while I have regular beef and to me it tastes the same.

    I have had grass fed beef from several farms that were way to gamey to me. I hate that flavor and can't choke down the meat.

    You have to find a farm and/or a breed of cow that you like. I have found several farms now where the meat is delicious. So keep shopping around.

    Thanks for all of the input, everyone! I think I will have to tour the local farms (there are LOTS around here) and try their beef.

    I want to switch to grass-fed beef, because I totally believe that it is healthier. I just don't want to "bite off more than I can chew".

    Then there's the issue of my husband. He is NOT thrilled with this diet at all (even though he can eat whatever he wants away from home). If I bring home some funky tasting beef, he'll probably leave me. LOL

    For now, our local, pasture-raised, grain-finished beef is still better than supermarket stuff. I will take some time to research.

    Thanks, all!

    I guess after eating plenty of deer, elk, moose and bear meat, our grass-fed angus beef tastes pretty mild in comparison. Then again, I don't think any of our wild game has tasted 'gamey'. Luckily hubby's latest animals have been youngsters, not the tough old bulls.

    I really do believe the age and breed of the animal, as well how the beef is aged and butchered, makes a difference in the flavor. .

    If I was used to eating a lot of game meat, I'm sure the grass-fed beef would be a piece of cake. My dad is a lousy hunter, though. I only got to try venison a couple times as a kid. lol

    One of our employees gave us a deer this past winter. While I am super appreciative, I have found that I do NOT like venison. It's wild meat, so of course, it's super healthy. So we do eat it. But I have to season the heck out of it.
