Grass Feed Beef

Post by bizzeedee on Sat Sep 18, 2010 8:31 pm

I know that a few of you are aware of the fact that we bought out first package of grass fed beed (ground, and it's about 90/10) I had planned to grill some burgers tonight, but it was still frozen.

For any of you who have grilled grass fed beef, what tips can you offer. I read that because it's so lean that it's easily over cooked.

How long do you think on each side for burgers on the grill (we like medium rare)... I'd hate to ruin 4.49/lb and we're hoping to buy more cuts in the future and need tips.

When we've purchased very lean Bison they have recommended lightly brushing the patties with olive oil before grilling, but I think the burger will be just fine as it is. Let us know how you like it and if you can taste a difference.

will so, tomorrow night after we eat them... my concern is that is says with grass fed, which is more lean, not to overcook... I'm used to starting with frozen quarter pounds (grain fed)... too it will be my first experience with raw beef, and we like them pink and they won't be frozen, I have my concerns.

Since you like your burgers pink, I would suggest you make them extra thick and stick them back in the freezer for a bit (10-15min) after you pat them out. My husband thinks this makes them hold together better on the grill.

kleenaech... thanks for that suggestion... I did put the patties in the freezer for 15 minutes, but I think 25 would have helped more, some pieces of the burger broke off, but I was able to save before they fell to the coals, er rocks, and pat them back on.

In 6 minutes, the burgers were done to our liking, nice and pink... and the flavor, OMG, unbelievably delish -- my first couple of bites were just the burger with no dressings ... worth the extra money. And now that we have a somewhat local source were we can order/buy from, that will be the only beef in our freezer!

Doesn't eating undercooked beef leave you open to E Coli? We get Grass fed, and organic angus( grass fed, free range) all the time, but I cook it well done when it is ground.

I won't eat a well done burger. They remind me of hockey pucks. BIL works in food service and I hate when he gets grill duty. Everything is cooked through and tastes of garlic salt. Blech! Safe...but tasteless. When I go I may go by E Coli.
