Having a Labor Day cookout? These tips from Edible Blue Ridge will help you get the most flavor from your grass-fed steaks and burgers, which are leaner than corn-fed meat:
- Choose burgers with a higher fat content for better texture.
- Be sure to trim the white membrane from steaks, as the connective tissues won’t soften as well as in regular meat when cooked.
- Sear the meat over high heat to keep the juices in, and then move it to a cooler area of the grill to heat though. Don’t overcook!
- Let the meat rest before cutting it against the grain.
Have a great Labor Day! Haute Pasture will be enjoying the day on the Meet Yer Eats farm tour!
