Organic beef is a delicacy that should be enjoyed to its maximum potential, with particular attention paid to the manner in which it is cooked.
Preparing and cooking an organic, grass-fed beef steak in the same manner as a normal steak may result in the loss of some of its additional flavour and texture, so here are our top 3 tips for ensuring you end up with a delicious piece of meat.
Tip 1: The right amount of seasoning
While with lower-quality pieces of meat, you may wish to maximize the taste by increasing the amount of seasoning, with organic beef less seasoning is often the best option.
As organic beef is usually richer in flavour than its non-organic alternatives, this means that you can cut down on the amount of seasoning and enjoy the more natural taste.
Tip 2: Tender cooking
Organic beef, particularly if it is grass-fed, starts out just as tender as other types of beef but may require a slight change in cooking style to fully appreciate its taste and texture.
Grass-fed organic beef can be kept tender by cooking it slower and at a lower heat, particularly if you prefer your steaks medium-well, or well done. It is worth remembering that the cut, or type of organic beef steak will have an effect on its required cooking technique too, so try to experiment each time with different heats and times until you create your perfect organic beef steak, as it will certainly be worth it.
Tip 3: Add sauce if required
When cooking organic beef, you shouldn’t be afraid to use a little sauce if desired. This is particularly advisable if you prefer your steak medium or well-done, as it will prevent it from drying out or turning tough. A dash of oil, wine, or a marinade sauce can do the trick, while also stopping it from sticking to the pan.
