Returning to that Old Savory Flavor

My father was a career military man (Air Force).  During the height of the Cold War and the Cuban Missile crisis, we lived in Lincoln, Nebraska.  My father was an avid pheasant hunter and got to know several of the farmers in the area.  He and one of his hunting buddies would go together and buy a cow from one of the farmers.  They would have the cow processed and we would have grass fed beef all of the time.  Sunday was always steak night.

After I grew up and got out on my own, I tried buying my steaks in the grocery store.  As a result, I all but gave up eating red meat.  I couldn't figure out if I wasn't cooking it right, or what was wrong.

A couple of years ago, I ran across an article about grass fed beef.  I thought it would be worth a try for environmental reasons.


It wasn't me doing anything wrong with the grocery store beef, it was the grocery store beef that was wrong.

There was the taste and flavor I remembered.  My wife and I have eaten more red meat in the last two years than we have eaten in the last twenty.

The health benefits are an extra for us.  The taste sealed the deal.

Try it one time.  You will be amazed.  It's like the difference between a home grown and store bought tomato.
