What Makes Our Grass Fed Beef So Good?
It Takes Time to Pasture Raise Beef
Beef was one of the hardest thing for us to get right. We knew we wanted grass-fed beef that was rotated daily onto fresh pasture. We needed a slower growth breed that would marble well without corn. We toured lots of local farms and taste tested. What we found was that raising grass-fed beef is really hard; even if a farmer is doing everything right, the end result might not make the cut.
Getting it right took time. Frankly it was an art.
100% Grass Fed Beef
We started off selling bulk purchases like most farms, but we found that most people don't like every cut that comes with an eighth or quarter cow. Those bulk packages appeared cheaper, but they also included a huge percentage of liver, oxtail and bones that were usually wasted, or worse tough dry cuts that result in a disappointing meal.
There are good reasons why these cuts aren't sold in grocery stores; why should you be forced to buy them just because you're doing the right thing buying direct from a farmer?

Grill Time Beef
A great mix of steaks and burgers
- 2 tenderloin steaks
- 2 strip steaks
- 1 chuckeye or sirloin steak
- 3 pounds of ground beef
- 2 packs of 1/3 pound burger patties
Four patties per pack, 8 total. Ground beef is 1 pound per package. Steaks are individually wrapped (tenderloins are two to a pack)
These are amazing
Dry aged and well trimmed
Not every package will have every steak listed, Most tenderloins are used in the Just Tender Steaks box. Package size may vary from 3-5 pounds. All steaks individually wrapped, except tenderloins which are 2 to a pack
Steaks and Beef
Steaks come individually wrapped
2 sirloin steaks
5 pounds of ground beef
Ground beef is 1 pound per pack
Some of these include a oyster steak instead of regular sirloin (technically an oyster steak is known as bottom sirloin butt flap) -- The oyster was requested by several customers so we added it in... but the State of MN in their infinite wisdom made us label it in a weird way that nobody would ever recognize the name.... don't get me started about working with the state on labeling.
Just ignore their label if you get that package and know that is really is just an oyster steak.
My favorite beef roast, plus great steaks
1 skirt steak
1 flank steak
1 hanger steak
2 fajita sliced round steaks
may have a flap steak or two if available
Some boxes may not have every steak listed and some boxes are notably larger due to the variation in steer sizes.

Texas Ribs and Steak
A favorite. Slow smoked ribs with organic sauce and an amazingly tender ribeye cap steak.
- 2 slow smoked beef texas style loin ribs
- 2 packs of tenderloin (two personal sized steaks per pack)
- 1 ribeye cap steak
For rib cooking instruction, click to view our Sous Chef page.
These are smaller cuts of steak. The ribs are slow smoked with organic sauce, simply warm and serve. The ribeye cap steak is a specialty cut and the tenderest steak with more flavor than a tenderloin. It is a thin steak, so please either sous vide at about 128-132 or watch your temp closely if grilling.
Just Tender Steaks
The Premier Steaks
- Ribeye cap steaks
If you are not familiar with ribeye cap steaks, they are better than tenderloin. Thin like flank steaks with great flavor and the tenderest steak. Not every package will have a ribeye cap steak as there are only a few per steer.
Whole Ground Beef
Ground beef with liver
6lbs of whole ground beef with about 3% emulsified beef liver content
Why you ask? Well.... liver is super good for you. It adds a ton of essential vitamins and minerals that are really hard to find in other plant or meat based products.
Check out this article I wrote about the importance of adding liver to your diet.
Adding 3% to ground beef won't negatively impact the flavor. In fact, many families tell us it tastes better.
