I pan fried a Petit Sirloin (pictured) to medium-rare perfection. Being that this was my first foray in cooking and eating grass-fed beef, I decided to forgo any marinade as I wanted to get a true feel for the texture and flavor of the beef. A pinch of salt and a bit of pepper was all I added to the steak which I then cooked on my stove top in a grill pan (no oil added).
The meat was cooked over a medium-low flame and per La Cense’s instruction, removed from the heat when it reached 120 degrees. The steak was then left to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
While not the tenderest piece of meat I’ve ever had, it certainly was flavorful! The taste is almost earthy and I’m guessing this is much closer to how beef is supposed to taste.
Again, this was my first time tasting grass-fed beef and the taste is definitely different than that of grain-fed beef. It took me several bites to get acquired with the taste but I can honestly say that by the end of the meal, I was very pleased with the taste of the Sirloin.
As for the Hamburger Patty, I decided to use it as stuffing for a burrito. I mixed my homemade taco seasoning in with the ground beef, added a drop of water, and sautéed the beef (no oil added) on the stove top. I also added a bit of sautéed onion and fresh spinach to round out the burrito filling. It was absolutely delicious!
