Well, we received our box of beef Sun Prairie Natural Beef yesterday and had our first taste of the meat tonight with one of their top sirloins. It was delicious! I must say that so far I am very impressed with their product and if the other meat is anything like the sirloin, then Nathan and I will be in hog heaven!!!
First of all, the meat was gorgeous when I took it out of the package. It was very lean, but still had enough fat on it to impart a little flavor while cooking. Because we wanted to actually taste the flavor of the steak, I seasoned it simply, using only some fresh ground black pepper and some gray Celtic sea salt and then brushed it with some olive oil before putting it on the grill.
One thing to remember when cooking grass fed beef is that it is a lot leaner than feedlot beef, so you have to be more conscientious when cooking it. The best thing to do is to heat the grill to high – ours was at 600 degrees – and then toss it on and sear it quickly on both sides and then turn the grill down to low. Cook for another 8-10 minutes, depending on the thickness and how done you like it. I think we cooked ours for 8 minutes and it was a perfect medium-rare. After it sat on the plate for a little while, it was more towards medium. Make sure that you also eat the juices that form when you’re letting your meat rest. According to Sally Fallon, this juice is full of good enzymes. Also, keep in mind that the longer you cook the meat, the more enzymes that are destroyed. She recommends not eating grilled foods very often, because food that is touched but the flames can become contaminated with carcinogens. If you’re considering a new grill, think about getting one of the new infrared type grills. The one we have is designed so that there is never any open flame in the grilling area.
One thing my hubby loves is a great steak and potato dinner. We paired this steak with my homemade garlic cheddar mashed potatoes and roasted cauliflower, along with some fresh cucumbers and carrots. No need to go to a steak house, when you can have a real steak dinner at home and not have to feel guilty about what you just ate!
