Grilling 101: The Secret to Perfect, Tender, Organic Grass-Fed Beef

Grill masters, meat enthusiasts, and everyone in between—get ready to sink your teeth into a mouthwatering adventure of grilling the best, organic grass-fed beef! Strap on your apron, fire up the grill, and use these juicy tips to up your grill game and delight your taste buds. 

What Makes Grass-Fed Beef So Rare?

Here at Oreganic, our cattle only graze on nature’s finest buffet: lush, natural grass harvested right here on our ranch in Madras, Oregon. No synthetic pesticides, antibiotics, or growth hormones make their way into our beef! That means you can savor every bite with the peace of mind our beef is raised the way nature intended—100% grass-fed and finished.

Our happy cattle live active, natural lives and enjoy a healthy diet, resulting in leaner meat with significantly less saturated fat compared to grain-fed beef. Grilling organic grass-fed beef can be a bit of a challenge, though, as it tends to be leaner and more delicate. But this doesn’t mean grass-fed beef can’t be deliciously tender.

Up Your Grill Game: 4 Essential Tips 

So what’s the secret to cooking Oreganic beef to perfection? Here are our top 4 tips::

1. Spice Up Your Organic Grass-Fed Beef

When it comes to organic beef, a little seasoning goes a long way. Coat your meat with oil, then rub salt, pepper, or your favorite flavor-packed concoction on all sides and let it marinate. The magic happens as the flavors penetrate the meat and break down tough connective tissues, resulting in fork-tender goodness.

2. The Room Temp Rule

Give your certified organic beef some time to relax before it hits the grill. Allowing it to reach room temperature for about 30 minutes ensures even cooking and maintains a tender texture.

3. Gentle Heat = Better Meat

To achieve that beautiful crust and juicy interior, start with a hot grill and sear each side for 2-3 minutes. Then, reduce the heat to medium-low or move it to a cooler spot to let the beef cook to perfection.

Remember, grass-fed beef cooks about three times faster than grain-fed, so keep an eye on the thermostat to avoid overcooking. If you’re a “well-done” kind of person…well, then you’re done. With grass-fed, you’ll want your beef cooked to medium (135 to 145 degrees)max!

4. Rest Assured, You’ll Get the Perfect Bite

Patience is a virtue. After it’s done cooking, resist the temptation to dig in right away. Give your beef a well-deserved 10-minute rest. This allows the meat to finish cooking and locks in juices to ensure every bite is moist, tender, and bursting with flavor.
