Frequently Asked Questions About Grass Fed Beef:

 

What is Grass Fed Beef?

Grass Fed Beef is cattle that are mainly reared in pastures, grazing on the grass for their diet. Our Irish Grass Fed cattle enjoy grazing lush pastures most of the year when it is warm enough between spring & autumn & the winter months eating silage (cut grass from the summer months, stored in bundles) in the large protected cattle sheds. The wet climate in Ireland creates the rich lush pastures that are familiar when driving anywhere around the country where our Grass Fed cattle are a familiar sight in the fields.

What is the difference between Grass Fed & Grain Fed Beef?

The 2 main differences between Grass Fed & Grain Fed beef are; the fat content & the flavour. Grass Fed beef has a richer flavour because of having a lower fat content, as grass diets generate a leaner animal. Grain Fed cattle have a higher fat content & gain weight quicker because of the additional supplements combined with the grain. This makes them produce beef faster for commercial benefit & give juicier meat that has a more apparent fatty taste.

Beef is one of the Best tasting meats because of the strong flavour & many varied cuts with different textures. Good quality Beef with a deep rich red colour is always guaranteed to give a delicious flavour, the darker the colour after this means the PH is too high & will eat tougher & not taste right. Beef is the most popular of all the meats because it so varied with the choice of cuts, the flavour is strong & very forgiving with the texture when rested after cooked.

What are the health benefits from eating Beef?

The health benefits from eating good quality Beef range from Vitamins converting food into energy, repairing wounds & bones. Protein helps build muscle mass, increases the natural growth of hair, nails, bones & muscles.

How do you thaw out frozen Beef safely at home?

The best way to unfreeze Beef before cooking is to leave in the bottom section of your fridge (the coldest section) in the vacuum bag to let the meat gradually thaw over a few days. The vacuum sealed bag protects the meat from drying out & any exposure to other foods; it also prevents any raw meat juices from running over other foods causing contamination.

Why do you let Beef “Rest Before Serving”?

Resting your Beef after cooking for a few minutes: a) lets the meat relax; to become more tender. b) allows the middle of the meat to reach optimal temperature; this finishes the cooking of the Beef. c) the piece of Beef will soak up the juices on the board; this makes your Beef more juicy or flavoursome. It is important to let the meat relax to achieve the desired serving results.

Can you age Beef in the vacuum bag?

The best way to “Age Beef in the Bag” is to keep it in the bottom of your fridge, at a temperature just above 0°c. The best results are when the beef has been cut & packed within a few minutes into a vacuum sealed clear recyclable pouch, because it has had less exposure to the air & will have a lower bacteria count, making it fresher & lees likely to smell once removed.

Can you refreeze Beef?

Refreezing Beef is not the best for the meat, but if the raw meat is still in the vacuum sealed bag & has only been thawed out for 2 days at a very low temperature, then it is okay to do this. The meat must be only a few degrees above freezing to prevent natural bacteria growth. A reason to refreeze beef would be: to cut a large piece of steak into smaller portions for future use.
