Grass-fed Scottish Highland beef is very lean, and when cooked correctly, the most tender and flavorful beef you will ever eat. Due to how lean this meat is, you should not prepare it the way you would prepare conventional beef. Here are some general tips to get the best results:
- DO NOT OVERCOOK!! Grass-fed Highland beef is best served RARE TO MEDIUM RARE. Overcooking grass-fed beef will make it tough.
- ADJUST COOKING TEMPERATURE AND TIME down from traditional beef recipes. Look for recipes specifically for grass-fed beef, venison, or bison.
- It is best to bring grass-fed beef to ROOM TEMPERATURE before cooking. NEVER thaw in a microwave. If you need to thaw it quicker than a refrigerator will thaw it, place it in a bowl of cold water for a few minutes. Do not cook while frozen.
- Use oil in your pan or on your grill to PREVENT STICKING. Do not pierce with a fork, use tongs to flip the beef instead.
