We’ve done something totally new and different for us — wrote an eBook on all-things beef! From how to cook beef to how cattle are raised to when to use a rub versus a marinade, this book covers everything related to beef.
Believe it or not, this eBook practically started writing itself years ago when we started Clover Meadows Beef. At that time, we started having conversations with you — our customers and blog readers.
That’s when we realized that you want more than a good steak. You want to know things that only a cattle farmer can answer 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
So, we decided to compile the answers to all of the questions we’ve received over the years, and we turned it into this eBook — An Essential Guide to Beef: A Cattle Farm Shares How to Purchase & Prepare Beef
From my (Jessica) perspective, this is the book I wish I had before Matt and I got married. It’s no secret that I grew up in typical subdivision in the suburbs. Before meeting Matt, I was confident cooking chicken, fish and pasta, but my beef skills were limited to browning ground beef for tacos or ordering a steak at a restaurant. After we got married, I quickly realized that I needed to learn how to cook more than ground beef. I started on a journey to learn all I could and read dozens of beef cookbooks trying to make sense of all-things-beef. I never found a one-stop-shop-beef-book like this one — it’s the book I desperately needed at that time!
This ebook isn’t a traditional cookbook with lots of recipes (although it does have quite a few 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.
