Anyone cooking up this stuff on a reg basis? Grocery stocks three diff brands. Strauss, Laura's, and Full Circle. I've not noticed this in summer due to grilling it outside but lately since I've been browning it up in a pan more for various recipes, sometimes it makes my kitchen smell like a fecking cattle truck. Not always. Worst offender seems to be the Strauss brand, but only lately. Few weeks ago used Full Circle and practically no smell at all. Not sure what the diff is that causes it. Tonight a batch of the Strauss did it again and even very slight livestock-like taste coming through the spaghetti sauce. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.

Why don't they say grass fed cow before it's slaughtered ?

By time it's ground beef, it's not eating anymore !

I have never experienced this, and I have been eating it all my life.

Sounds like you need to find a good source and stick with it .... and avoid others.

Seems like the meat is getting contaminated with cow poop. Maybe itís being poorly slaughtered or processed.

Is it PURE grass fed beef? Because I seem to recall that typical cattle industry practice is to always fatten them up on grains shortly before slaughter as this makes more money.

So if your goal is to eat cattle that only ate grass in its lifetime.. make sure you trust the brand or the seller.

When i was a kid, we raised beef for our own use. We would feed them heavy with ground corn (with molasses) , several weeks before slaughter. I think it made better marbled meat. No one around us grinds corn anymore.

Buy from a butcher or a local farmer.

Grocery store meat is not very good. Beef from a good butcher is much better. Even the ground beef.

Kentucky 31 is tall fescue. We also had orchard grass as well.

I wonder if they are grinding dog food grade beef from Argentina(almost everything is grassfed there) or old bulls or tongues?

You wouldn't have to drive to far out in the country to get it, do a little googling and you'll find a farmer that sells what he raises. It won't be real cheap but if you buy some volume it won't be too bad and makes the drive worth it.

Unless you are seeking it for health reasons (OMEGAs, etc), don't get your hopes up about eating it. It tastes comparably worse as there isn't enough fat and fat is flavor.

I remember someone telling me about their neighbors pumping their cattle full of steroids? Those cows went to market a lot sooner than this guys cows.That is one advantage of owning animals and knowing what they are fed.How much of organic stuff is anything but that.

There is grass fed and grass finished.

I gave up on red meat years ago aside from a occasional burger at a BBQ. No hot dogs for over 10 yrs.
