grilling or better slow cooked. It wasn't until my first bite of Kobe Beef that I realized there was a difference and not all beef was the same. That previously tipsy (okay, maybe it only had one or two drinks) cow had lived a life of leisure. Massaged daily and serenaded with beautiful music, that cow's diet and lack of stress definitely altered the taste and changed the way I looked at beef. Obviously, I couldn't afford to stock my freezer with Kobe Beef so I continued shopping at my local supermarket, disappointed with the options.
grass fed beef. Not grass fed and then finished with grain like other "grass fed beef". La Cense Beef is grass fed from start to finish. No pesticides, antibiotics, or hormones. Their Montana raised cattle eat...grass. Isn't that what cows are supposed to eat? Yes. But most cows are fed grain, which isn't natural at all.
La Cense Beef has a unique flavor and depth that I didn't expect. It's lightly marbled and you cook it at lower temperatures for less time. Because there was less fat, I expected a dryer steak with less flavor. I couldn't have been more wrong. It's tender and juicy, and the taste is as genuine as it gets. Taste the difference for yourself. Eat beef the way it was meant to be eaten!
