How do I cook Sommers Organic™ meats?
Our organic grass-fed cattle eat a strict diet of organic grass,
therefore they are high in protein and low in fat. Because of
this, grass-fed organic beef must be cooked gently. Cooking methods for organic poultry and pork do not differ from non-organic meats because they are fed a diet of grain.
Steps for cooking Sommers Organic™ meats:
- Use a good meat thermometer, not a timer.
- Turn down the heat. Either reduce the temperature of
your recipe by 50 degrees or reduce the cooking time.
- When grilling beef, sear quickly over high heat on each
side to seal in the natural juices, then reduce the heat to
medium or low to finish the cooking process.
- Cover meat after cooking and let rest to allow the juices
- Never turn meat with a fork. Always use tongs.
- Thaw frozen Sommers Organic™ meat in refrigerator
for 1-2 days, or until thawed. Never use a microwave
to thaw your organic meat.
