One of the great things about organic grass fed beef is that it’s really lean. At left is a picture of the ground beef I browned tonight. I didn’t even have to drain it because it was so lean! The picture shows the beef as it was cooking – there was a tiny bit of fat so it didn’t burn to the pan, but seriously not enough to drain. There wouldn’t even have been a teaspoon full of fat!
The other great thing about the meat is the flavor – ahhhhh! I took one bite of my dinner and I felt all of my nerve endings give a collective sigh of satisfaction. The protein coursed through my system and we raised a toast to beef! No seriously, we did a toast. It was a very ceremonial repast.
The beef went very nicely with pasta and a sauce made from beef broth, balsamic vinegar, tomatoes, and onion.
Beef. Mmm. Beef.
