im probably the only one to say this. but i think grass fed beef is extremely poorly flavored in comparison to the unhealthy grained out beef.
almost isnt worth eating IMO. with that said i still am trying to convince myself to go the healthier route but its not easy. esp. w/ someone that is quite the fan of a good ribeye. and on some occasions a really nice fillet.
anyhow...i wonder if anyone has fed out poultry, or pork using a wine based diet. i wonder if you could soak their feed in the wine and that would be sufficient?? hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm................................??
Dead Rabbit ,
I'll never be making flavour comparisons between grain and grass fed herbivores: it's practically unknown to feed grain here and we'll just say it's not my thing anyway.
Do you prefer grain fed flavour, texture or both? I have this mental picture of it being bland and soft but I really don't know...

its all about flavor. and the texture is much better too. same way with store bought chicken. much more tender. but i feel that grass fed beef is very bland. flavor is in the fat. fat comes from graining a beef out. a good month or more on nothing but grain before slaughter will put flavors in a beef that will ruin you for grass fed. thats why i make the statement that grass fed is almost not worth eating beef in my book. 36 yrs of eating grain fed beef has spoiled my tastebuds. the last 2 yrs of eating grass fed, beef that ive bought for home consumption....its really a disappointment .
