Tips for Grilling Grass Fed Beef

  1. Quickly sear each side over high heat to seal in natural juices then reduce heat and continue cooking.
  2. The biggest mistake is overcooking grass fed beef. It’s best at rare to medium but if you like it well done, cook it at very low temperatures in a sauce to add moisture.
  3. Forgo the fork and stick to tongs while flipping the meat in order to keep precious juices in.
  4. Because it’s naturally low in fat, baste throughout grilling to add moisture or add caramelized onions, olives or roasted peppers to keep the beef juicy.
  5. Since it’s high in protein and low in fat, grass fed beef requires about 30% less cooking time and will continue cooking after it’s removed from the heat source, so remove from heat source 10 degrees before it reaches your desired temperature.
  6. Play it safe and use a meat thermometer to test for doneness and watch it carefully.
  7. Allow beef to sit covered in warm place for 8-10 minutes to let juices settle and redistribute before serving.
