Differences: The fat in grass fed beef melts at a lower temperature than grain fed beef. This is a good thing. However, it does take some adjustment when cooking.
Defrosting: Defrosting your beef correctly is crucial. When done correctly and slowly, your 21-day aged OregonGrassFed beef will more than likely be "fresher" than beef that was shipped, sold, and stored in a fresh state. If time allows we recommend defrosting over 2 to 3 days in your refrigerator. In a pinch, throw your beef on the counter and room temperature air defrost for 3 to 4 hours prior to use. Never put your beef under water (hot or cold) or in the microwave. Defrosting this way will cause the cell walls of the beef to rupture, completely changing the texture and taste.
Steaks: Steaks will cook in about 70% of the time as grain feed steaks. No temperature change is necessary, but your timing needs to be adjusted.
Burgers: When it comes to grass fed burgers, this quicker cooking time means the outside will look done while the inside is rare/raw unless you cook them at a slightly lower temperature than you use with grain fed burgers.
Benefits for the Animal, Farmer, Local Economy, Environment and most importantly the Consumer
Grass Fed Cattle: Our animals live their entire lives on pasture, eating a true natural grass diet which keeps them healthy without need of antibiotics or growth hormones. They live an average of 22 to 28 months versus the standard feedlot animal's 16 to 18 months.
Farmers and the local economy: Our steers are purchased directly from the Oregon farmers who finished them on grass under our finishing standards. This enables them to fill the finishing role that is normally done by large meat companies in distant feedlots, and capture that profit locally. Grass fed beef, whether done by OregonGrassFed or other small producers, typically keeps more of the profits closer to where the animals were raised.
Environment: Our finishing is done on fields using management intensive grazing and rotation. No feedlots are required. No carbon intensive grain farming is required. Transportation of the animals is minimized.
Grass Fed Beef Consumer: Healthy beef can only come from healthy animals. See our nutrition page (link "nutrition page" to our nutrition page) for the nutritional benefits. Our beef has balanced fats so it will digest easily, leaving you energized without a heavy feeling in your stomach. Also realize at OregonGrassFed we are only using young beef steers in the 22-28 month age range purchased from local farmers for an average of $1400 each in 2012. The processing was completed in Oregon with 21-day dry aging for an average cost of $540 each. Our margins on this product are low, meaning you get more quality food and less marketing magic for your food dollars.
