Grassfed meat has less fat, a lot less water, a denser texture, and much more flavor. Since grassfed meat is a totally different product, you cannot cook it like conventional meat, and expect to have a great meal. I learned this the hard way, when I ruined every piece of grassfed meat I cooked. I researched the methods that were used to cook meat when grassfed meat was the only meat available. I learned that the methods our ancestors used were very different than modern methods.
Tender Grassfed Meat is the book I wish I had when I first tried to cook grassfed meat. If grassfed meat is cooked like conventional meat, it will be tough and terrible. If grassfed meat is cooked properly, it is tender and absolutely delicious, with a depth of flavor that can never be achieved by conventional meat.
Tender Grassfed Meat was designed to make it easy to cook delicious and tender grassfed meat. It was designed both for the beginner and the experienced cook, with a wide variety of recipes.
Tender Grassfed Meat covers beef, bison, and lamb. There are many good suppliers of all of these meats, both on the Internet and locally. All three of these animals were meant to eat grass, and their meat and fat are some of the healthiest and most nutritious food you can eat.
Tender Grassfed Meat has a detailed Table of Contents and a very detailed Index, which makes it very easy to find everything. You can look inside the book and browse the Index and Table of Contents at the book’s page at Amazon.
Part One explains in detail why grassfed meat is best, and the substantial differences between grassfed meat and other kinds of meat. This section also goes into detail on what ingredients and cooking equipment are best. I share specific techniques for making some of the most tender and delicious grassfed meat you could possibly eat.
Part Two contains a number of detailed recipes for grassfed beef, bison, and lamb, as well as a section on how to eat liver and love it.

The Appendix contains sections on finding and purchasing grassfed meat and recommends some specific sources for grassfed meat.
Many of the recipes contain traditional flavor combinations taken from the cooking of old Europe. These are flavor combinations that have been used for hundreds, and in some cases thousands of years, to season meat. These combinations were used for such a long time because they make meat taste wonderful. The recipes contain flavor combinations from France, Italy, Germany, Poland, Hungary, Russia, England, Scotland, Ireland, Spain, Portugal, Romania, Transylvania, Bohemia, and even ancient Rome. Other recipes feature flavor combinations from China, Vietnam, the United States, and Native Americans.
These recipes are extremely detailed, broken down step by step to make them easy to use. The book is designed so that the entire recipe is visible at all times. You never have to turn a page while using a recipe.
I read hundreds of cookbooks while researching this book. I wrote this book so it contained everything I would ever want to see in a cookbook in terms of detail, ease of use, and most importantly, absolutely delicious food. I have cooked every recipe in the book several times. This is the food that I cook for my family, and I continue to make these recipes for our meals, because they are healthy, tender, and delicious.
