I'll be living in northern Oman for the next 3 months and shopping at a store called Lulu. I try to stay as paleo as possible but it's a bit difficult. There is a wide variety of beef to choose from, but it is labeled by country of origin (Australia, New Zealand, India, etc) Not only to the people who work there hardly speak English, they wouldn't know whether the beef was grassfed or not if they understood what I was asking.
Is there a way to tell if its grass fed by the way it looks, smells or tastes? I would assume that beef from New Zealand is more likely to be grass fed, but not guaranteed to be. I've eaten grass fed here in the US, but it I didn't notice any markers that made me know it was grass fed- but I wasn't really looking for them either.
*another note- the beef at the counter is still in VERY large sections. IE a flank steak is still an entire flank muscle. When you want some, you tell them how much you want and how to slice it. They pick up the whole muscle and cut it with a giant knife. So I can see the entire chunk of meat, and I'm always buying some sort of steak.
