D’Artagnan is the exclusive U.S. purveyor of this certified-humane grass-fed beef from Australia, in partnership with a sixth-generation family-run meat business. In keeping with our principles, the cooperative of small ranches is fully committed to sustainable and ethical practices, and each rancher nurtures the cattle in a stress-free, humane environment. Pristine, remote locations offer vast pastures with nutritious grasses, and the fresh ocean breezes have been tested and proven to be the cleanest air in the world. The cattle breeds are selected for genetics that deliver consistent quality beef with rich, full flavor and lush texture. The ranchers proudly maintain the integrity of traditional grass-fed production while taking advantage of technology to trace every cut back to the ranch that produced it. The humane processes are better for the cattle, the ranchers, the environment, and ultimately, for the taste and quality of the beef.
Grass-fed beef offers high protein, minerals and B-group vitamins such as niacin, thiamin and zinc; it tends to be lower in fat, and ours has about 30% less than conventionally raised, grain-finished beef.
When carving into individual serving steaks, we recommend they be cut to at least 1½ inches in thickness. Sliced into steaks and grilled, this large ribeye can feed a backyard party. Or provide many meals to come when cut it into individual portions, vacuum-sealed and stashed in the freezer.
Even though our grass-fed beef is quite tender, it’s always going to be leaner than beef that has a grain finish. And since it is leaner, you have to take care not to overcook this ribeye, which will make it tough.
Try coating it with olive oil to protect it and help with browning. You might also use a light marinade. Grass-fed beef requires less cooking time than conventional beef, so make sure that you keep a close eye on it.
And be sure to cook only to rare or medium-rare so you don’t lose the tender texture and extraordinary flavor.
