FAQ

Are special cooking techniques required for grassfed beef?
Grassfed beef is typically leaner and cooks more quickly than grain-finished beef. You don’t need any special equipment or training,
just take care not to overcook it. For detailed cooking instructions and recipes, we recommend The Grassfed Gourmet by Shannon Hayes.
