Ground Beef Questions
Hello, I have been belching almost nonstop for quite awhile, believing it to be the result of leaky gut syndrome. I am sure that I have that condition, but yet, the belching doesn't seem to stop. I thought it might be aerophagia, which I am... (more)
Wondering if eating steaks and roasts is better than eating ground beef.. Ground beef is a lot easier to cook and its so much cheaper. What are your thoughts?
I heard that if you store raw meat below 35 degrees fahrenheit, that it can last for weeks in the refrigerator without spoiling and actually the enzymatic action will increase over time. I realize that conventional wisdom and the USDA give a... (more)
I've started paleo recently, and find that I'm eating 3/4 lbs of 75% lean grass fed ground beef a day, with about 1/4 lb of grass fed organ meat ( heart, in this case.) Is this too much meat? Too much protein? Thanks
Bought a bulk pack of meat from a local farmer, working our way through all the different cuts, and finding that the supply of mince is endless. There are only 2 of us, plus I'm pregnant, so I'm thinking of cooking it all up at once and freezing... (more)
Meatloaf. You can slice it and individually freeze the slices. Make the seasoning fairly neutral and use different sauces when you eat it so as not to get bored. I, however, would never get bored eating meatloaf.
I recently came upon a few pounds of grass-fed beef bones. My friend told me that if I crockpot them on high for like 3 days, the bones will become soft and edible. Have any of you tried this? Could you give me the details of your experience? How... (more)
Hi. I am getting into planning meals for myself and my daughter. I like ground beef. I bought grass-fed ground beef from Whole Foods and cooked it last week. It was great! Then I bought some non grass-fed this week (cheaper) and I noticed that... (more)
grass-fed beef is naturally leaner, as grains are used to fatten up cattle, as it is not part of their natural diet. You can get leaner grain-fed if you have too, but the fat in grass-fed is healthy with higher concentrations of Omega-3 and CLA... (more)
So I just did the stupidest thing. I had some frozen grass-fed ground beef in the freezer and I wanted to make some for lunch so I unwrapped it poured on spices, put some CO in the pan, and started to cook it per usual. Except it didn't really... (more)
I'm sooo excited: I scored some 1 pound packs of frozen, grass fed ground beef at Trader Joes. Question: What's the fastest / best way to thaw it? Whenever I've tried it in the microwave it seems to always start cooking the outer most area... (more)
I know this answer is very late to the discussion, but I heard this very topic addressed on NPR recently, and it seems that immersing the meat, sealed in plastic, in HOT water is the safest. Why? Because it thaws in a fraction of the time it takes... (more)
Recently I've been finding this product in a supermarket. Does this mean 70/30 protein/fat? I tried to look this up online, no success.
Has anyone ordered from La Cense? Judging from the website it seems like a great product and they happen to be offering half off through Groupon today. http://www.lacensebeef.com/promotions/groupon/group_deal_burgers_2012.aspx Just wanted to... (more)
So a while back I bought some ground organic beef from Costco "Organic Ranchers" and had it in the freezer until last night. After letting it thaw for a day in the fridge, I opened it up and it smelled of sulfur. I soaked it in water for a few... (more)
I pretty much exclusively eat grass fed ground beef for my meat consumption because it's cheap and I'm a poor college student. I don't really know many recipes other than a coconut curry beef one that I enjoy, but I want to try some new ones. Does... (more)
I was wondering if I had some ground beef if it was a good idea to cook it in water. I wanted to cook it or brown it in a pan but I could be losing a lot of the nutrients that way as the beef is in contact with the heat source or pan throughout... (more)
I buy 80/20 grass fed ground beef from a local farmer. Whenever I cook it, there is very little fat that cooks out into the pan. Sometimes I buy 85/15 grass fed ground beef from Whole Foods, and there is a lot of fat the cooks out into the... (more)
Low (heat) and slow, or high and fast? And, when to stop? When the beef is just browned, there's a good amount of grease in the pan, which gradually cooks off. Stop cooking when it's still greasy, or wait until that has been cooked away? EDIT:... (more)
I was in my local Costco this weekend and discovered a 3 lbs pack of Organic Ranchers ground beef for $13.99 ($4.66/lbs). While it doesn't label the meat as "grass-fed", a visit to their website says that their cows are grass-fed. Although their... (more)
My butcher will happily mince me some (grass-fed!) beef at whatever ratio I ask. I'm thinking 50/50 but am not quite sure. I would love to hear from people their preferences or recommendations and reasons why. Should I ask for any particular cut... (more)
From a purely "cooking" perspective, I can't think of many applications for ground beef any fattier than 70% lean. Most uses for ground beef in modern "Western" cooking will call for 75%-85% lean. You'll probably just end up scraping up a lot of... (more)
I am on a budget and do not have access to grass fed beef. I in fact even have to eat a decent amount of pork/chicken because of this and I try to go for the leaner cuts of meat. I know that that most of the issues with conventional meats are in... (more)
I eat grass-fed ground beef on a regular basis for dinner. I am noticing that my digestion is significantly better and I feel better the next day, compared to when I have some other meat for dinner. I seem to be more regular, less rock-in-stomach... (more)
It seems to be listed everywhere as a cheap staple of the diet, but I haven't seen any threads on what you've found to do with it. I can cook a ribeye, but my ground beef knowledge stops at burgers, meatloaf, and spaghetti (out for obvious... (more)
I am new to Paleo and I really love it so far, but I see everywhere people just practically writhing in gastronomic pleasure due to how much steak they get to eat. I hate steak. The taste, the mouth feel, the smell, the gushing juices... I am all... (more)
You are not doomed. Eat your grass-fed ground beef and fish as your main protein sources, supplement with bacon and occasional chicken. You'll be fine.
Was watching Food, Inc. where they had a segment on the production of ground beef fillers that are cleansed by ammonia. Ick. It made me wonder: How can we tell if the ground meat we're eating or cooking contains fillers? Any good ways to tell... (more)
