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.
Today I will: Eat food, not poison. Plan for success, not settle for failure. Live my real life, not a virtual one. Move and grow, not sit and die.

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.
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. .
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.
