What's this?

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.

Ingredients

  • 2 Pound Grassfed Ground Beef

  • 4 Teaspoon kosher salt

  • 4 Slices provolone cheese

  • 4 Brioche Bun

Steps

    Divide grassfed beef into four portions. To not overwork the meat, remove from the package and directly shape into burger patties about 5" (12cm) across- do not knead the meat. Sprinkle each burger with one teaspoon Kosher salt divided one half on each side.
