Grass-fed beef feed on grass and a mixture of other forage. This produces less marbling, but the fat produced has a greater percentage of healthy Omega 3 fats than Omega 6. The lower fat and the higher percentage of Omega 3s compared to Omega 6s changes the culinary performance of grassfed beef: it cooks more quickly than corn fed beef and responds very well to high heat cooking.
2 LB Grassfed Beef
4 TSP Kosher Salt
4 Slices provolone cheese
4 brioche burger buns
4 slices tomato and other burger toppings of your choice
Divide 2 lbs grassfed beef into four portions. To not overwork the meat, remove from the package and directly shape inot burger patties about 5" accross- do not knead the meat. Sprinkle each burger with one teaspoon Kosher salt divided one half on each side.
When ready to cook, set the temperature to 415°F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes
Lay the hamburgers on the grill grate. Cook for 12 minutes for medium rarer- the exterior should be nicely browned. Thermometer should be placed into the center of the burger and should register 130°F.
The last few minutes of cooking, add provolone slices to burgers and place buns on grill to toast. Serve with condiments. Enjoy!
