If for any reason the above Odysee Video doesn’t play smoothly for you, the back up YouTube version is here.
I am a huge fan of grass fed vs. CAFO beef for a ton of reasons. First any bovine is a ruminant and should be eating grass not grain. None of these animals evolved eating grain because there is no mass quantity of grain that is edible to such animals in the wild. Indeed when you graze cattle you know they prefer what we call “teen age grass” about half grown well before it puts on any seed heads. Go try to eat unprocessed grain and as you choke to death you will comprehend why.
Today’s question is one I get or at least similar ones on occasion here it is as it was posted on my MeWe profile page…
Question for MM: Why would the grass fed meat I get be so tough? My wife and I are getting more grass fed beef but every cut we get lately is very tough. All of the grass fed meat in my area seems to have less marbling. Is it my cooking technique or or is it the meat? I cooked 2 ribeyes for the family and we could not eat most of it.
So I am going to give some thoughts on management of beef but my knowledge is limited on this. Hence I am going to pass that portion on to Darby Simpson of The TSPC Expert Council and it will be on a future episode of the podcast.
On the second part, it may have something to do with cooking technique but since no information was provided on that I can only guess.
What I am going to do is tell you how a steak like a rib eye should be cooked and how any piece of meat can end up tough.
I will also give you several ways to make meat tender and it just so happens to naturally line up with my TSPC Item of the Day for today which is Redmond Real Salt and that can be found here – http://www.thesurvivalpodcast.com/iotd-6-15-21
