Tomorrow, Friday, September 7th, Whole Foods Market is having an awesome sale on grass-fed beef! All U.S. stores will have grass-fed ground beef on sale $4.99/lb. (10 lb limit per customer.)
Grass fed beef facts: Grass-fed beef is a leaner choice than grain-fed, and it has a more favorable ratio of omega fatty acids. Since it’s lower in fat, grass-fed beef runs the risk of drying out or becoming overcooked more quickly than grain-finished beef. Below are some recommended cooking tips from Whole Foods Market butchers:
- Don’t cook grass-fed beef cold; it is best when removed from the refrigerator 15 minutes or so prior to cooking.
- When cooking on the grill, let the flames burn down more than is recommended for other meat. Also, it doesn’t need as much cooking time.
- When cooking in the oven, lower the oven’s cooking temperature by about 25°F, and the cooking time will stay about the same.
- Always use tongs, never a fork, to turn your beef; don’t press or flatten during cooking in order to retain precious juices.
