Grass Fed Beef
We had grass fed rib eye steaks last night. Fired up the Weber grill and cooked them to perfection over charcoal. Just added a little kosher salt, fresh cracked pepper and Lea and Perrins Worcestershire sauce (my favorite umami cheat).
The steaks were absolutely to die for. Incredibly lean and sweet to the taste. My wife, Judy, who is not a big fan of red meat, ate her whole steak!
So on the plus side: delicious, healthy and a much better way to raise cattle. The only downside is cost: $14.99 a pound at Whole Foods versus $5.99 a pound at Costco for corn-fed rib eye steaks. Steak dinner for four comes to $53.50 at Whole Foods and $21.38 at Costco.
Judy and I are hitting Byerly's this Friday. They just started carrying a full line of grass fed beef and are also now carrying a complete line of bison. I will check pricing and report back.
