In flavor, texture and appearance pastured Pineywoods beef is decidedly different than other grassfed beef varieties. Pineywoods beef is buttery and nutty in taste. Pineywoods beef really benefits from a salt marinade to soften the meat and give more tenderness.
1. Steak cuts should be cooked quickly and at higher temperatures. This will leave the meat tender and juicy. After cooking you should allow the meat to rest for 5-10 minutes! This allows the meat to relax and reabsorb those delicious juices.
2. Roasts & Stew Meat should be cooked at lower temperatures and over a longer period of time. Sear the beef roast on all sides which creates the "Maillard reaction" which lends a caramel-like flavor to the meat from browning. High moisture cooking like braising is an excellent way to cook those stew cuts. Use our rich Pineywoods Bone Broth for extra beef flavor.
