TIPS FOR COOKING GRASSFED STEAKS
Don’t overcook the meat
Let the meat rest after cooking
Following these two tips will insure a great grassfed steak experience. I’ve been cooking our steaks for several years now and have found them to be so juicy and marbled that they require much less fuss than many cooking guides recommend.
Grassfed beef tastes best rare to medium rare. Due to higher protein count and lower fat levels, grassfed steaks require 30% less cooking time than other beef does.
- Salt and pepper to taste. Get your grill or pan very hot. If using a pan, add some cooking oil. Cooking time is only a few (3-5) minutes per side.
- Using a meat thermometer is the best way to know when your steaks are done. An internal temperature of 125 degrees makes a perfect rare steak every time.
- After cooking, let the steaks rest about 5 minutes. Heat naturally pulls the juices to the core, but when the meat is removed from the heat, the juices spread back through it. Allowing for this to happen is well worth the time.
