Do you know how to buy beef? Have you ever stood at a beef counter and been confused? Which cut is best? How do you cook it? What do the beef labels really mean? What’s really the difference between grass fed vs. grain finished? When do you use a rub vs. a marinade? And so many other questions…
If you’ve said yes to any of these questions, this ebook is for you.
We’re Matt & Jessica and we’re fifth generation cattle farmers. As cattle farmers, we’re very blessed and unique because we sell our beef directly to consumers (most cattle farmers don’t sell directly to consumers, they sell to large beef packing plants). That means we get to talk face-to-face to the people that eat our beef — people like you!
We’ve been selling beef directly off of our farm for over a decade, and we’ve answered hundreds of questions about beef. We wrote down all of the questions and compiled the answers in this ebook.
These conversations have taught us that you want more than a good steak. You want in-depth answers about beef that only a cattle farmer or rancher can answer.
This ebook explains how to buy beef with topics like…
- How to make sense of beef cuts and the best way to cook each cut
- Why some beef cuts are tender and others are tough
- How to cook a steak to perfection every time
- When to get bone-in versus boneless steaks
- When to use a rub versus a marinade
- How to decipher beef labels and lingo
- How a steer’s diet can change the flavor of steaks
This isn’t a traditional cookbook with lots of recipes. Rather, it’s a guidebook that explains how to get your desired results out of each cut of beef.
We hope it will give you tips and tricks that will be practical, easy to apply and ultimately guide you to being more confident as you cook beef.
