      I would characterize the grass fed flavor as a tad gamey and leaner, which I dont mind as much, because I do enjoy Deer and other game meats

    I did the grass fed once ond definitely didn't like it. I agree completely.

    Even the idea of grass-fed beef is not fair... as the feds don’t really regulate the “grass-fed” industry. BLUF... beef has a lot of differences between the various ranches and what they consider grass fed.

      Grass finished is good tho.

  • Milhouse Vanhoutan

    I have never had a grain fed cow that tasted anywhere as good as a grain fed steak. The tenderness may be less but the depth of flavor can't be beat IMO.
    But I understand that might be my taste.

    The fat should be yellow!

    You can always tell quality grass fed. The fat is yellow and soft, the meat is dark. It looks strikingly different than grain fed. (edit, meant to say yellow)

    I’ve been eating 100% grass feed cause I thought it was healthy. Time to save some money now.

    • Corey Rene

      S7R4 Thanks for the advice. Sometimes I order pasture raised chicken but like you said it’s expensive. I do eat raw salmon and adding in more organ meats too.

    • S7R4
      S7R4 3 days ago +1

      It kind of depends. The vitamins are only a slight bit higher, not enough to justify the price, but the fatty profile is moderately better. It still doesn't compare to fish or something like that but if you take something like a grain fed chicken vs a grass fed piece of beef you start to see a pretty noticeable difference. If you ate all grain fed chicken or all grass fed beef you're going to see your hdl/ldl cholesterol ratio fairly improved from the grass fed beef. So it depends on your diet and goals. I eat a lot of sardines and take fish oil. I hardly eat any chicken. I only eat the grass fed if it's on sale. It is too expensive to justify the price difference health wise, but it's worth buying when it's reasonably priced. You get more benefit out of grass fed raw cheeses in my opinion. (price per nutrition wise). And from not heating seed/plant oils, or from eating wild caught salmon if you can afford/source it fresh, or high quality sardines or salmon eggs/roe or even pastured omega fed or if you're really lucky and can find it insect fed chicken eggs.

    What about tenderise the grass fed then?

  • Tzaphkiel Melekiyah
    Tzaphkiel Melekiyah 4 days ago

    The grass fed has different fats in it which change taste as well as texture, once you get used to it it's better, it's more akin to eating a wild animal, one which eats what it's supposed to.

    they're both great for different reasons but for the cost I'd rather eat grain and eat some fish or fish oil to get all the health benefits.

    Probably because grass fed cows are more active as in they move around more compared to the grain fed that are probably stationed in 1 place when they eat

    Unfair test I expect the result befor continuing .. the grass one cut is not as thick as the grain one so it will not be as much tender

    Down here in central Florida we have a few Ranchers that finish the cattle (last 135 days) on Residuum infused hay. Residuum is a byproduct of distilling alcohol (it is the mash stipped of alcohol) and is very healthy for cattle. All of this meat goes to select restaurants and is never available in stores. I get mine mixed 50/50 with molasses (called Distillass) and give it to my cattle as a liquid multi-vitamin. As I only have about 15 head and any given time, I slaughter 3 to 4 head per year at 4 years of age, unlike the industry standard 18 months, mine is always USDA Prime and I only supply family members. It is just an expensive hobby.

    The grain fed looked dry-aged, the grass did not... For a true test, you need to compare apples to apples. I'd rather have the grass-fed, much higher in CLA.

    Cows naturally eat grass. Grass fed beef is the natural taste of real beef.

    "grass fed" is a marketing scheme to charge more money. It's like calling something "fresh" ....really?? How "fresh" is the food we buy. Haha.

    You have to get used to grass fed but once you get a flavor for it you'll like it. It's way healthier too.

  • David Seriff

    If you want grass fed, make sure it says one hundred percent grass fed or grass fed and grass Finished. Grass fed beef is healthier than grain fed. It has less saturated fat and more omega three fatty acids. But because it has less fat it will not be as juicy and tasty. It's a trade off.

    You probably should have left off the garlic powder in order to properly judge the complete difference between them.
    Not just consistency but flavor too

    Grass fed beef cooks quicker - you should have cooked it less!! You can clearly tell by the inside color that grass fed one was cooked more than the grain fed!

  • Taote David Mapitse

    Someone like I used to grass fed would prefer it to grain fed. Grain fed tastes bland.

    i would argue that the cattle were raised and slaughtered at different ages, which contributes to marbling/texture and other things. and that also explains the size difference.

    Regardless of which tastes best, grass fed beef has an omega-3 fat profile similar to salmon. It's way more healthy for you to eat.

  • Jerry Ragan

    I have had and cooked both. The grain fed will be more tender due to limited movements, so in most cases that is why you can get a tender cut. If it is a true field grass fed no grains you slight toughness comes from being able to move around more. Simple trick to tenderize grass fed meats that i do is place in a sealed container at room temp for 24 hours. Rinse throughly cook and presto tender steak
