Start mixing the ground beef with spices, herbs, garlic, etc...
Here is a good place to start
Does anyone else have a problem with it???
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?
Shop around at different farms. No one farm really creates the same "grass-fed" beef, due to the different grasses one farm may have over another. Sort of like honey tasting different depending where the pollen was collected. Living in chicago I've tried grass-fed beef from iowa and indiana, and I like iowa grass-fed beef way better.
I think grass fed tastes 100x better than what we buy at the store. In fact, it's ruined us for all others. Eating out at steakhouses is such a disappointment these days. It tastes like cafeteria food now, lol.
Hmmmmm....I never had a problem with it. Always thought my cow tasted better than the markets.
The beef we used to get was actually grass fed until about two weeks before processing then fed corn so I don't really taste a big difference; my husband does so I remind him of the benefits. I think he will eventually get used to it.
Yeah, I hate it, too. It's a hell of a lot leaner, though, which is part of the problem. I have been looking for a half cow and finally today found a great guy at a farmer's market. He said the grass fed I have been buying at the supermarket is from Australia and does not conform to US standards for grass fed. I bought about $50 worth from him- we shall see! His half cow price is $3.50 per pound hanging weight.
I think I will just have to buy some individual cuts from some local farms and try them out. The only grass fed beef I have ever tried was from Australia. The ground beef today was from out of state.
I wouldn't say that it's a bad taste. Just... different. Not gamey, like venison, but it sort of reminded me of that.
