The Grass Roots Way 

We’re proud of our animals and the farmers who raise them with the absolute highest standards. Each and every animal is raised outdoors with sunlight, fresh air, and clean grass. Out of respect to the land and animals, we raise in small-batches and practice regenerative farming methods. This leads to the healthiest life for our animals and builds soil for generations to come. The result is profoundly better meat that is nutrient-dense, full of flavor, and good for the environment. 

#1: Grill-Roasted 

Start by heating up your grill, place the minute steak on leaving enough space between each steak for slipping room. Cook until the meat starts to brown, around 2 to 3 minutes, and flip. Repeat until your steak reached an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit. Toss any charred bits. 

#2: Braised 

Warm your skillet on medium to low heat. Add ½ cup of beef stock or water to prevent the steaks from drying out. You can add in diced peppers, onions, or vegetables of choice, once the meat starts to brown and add sauces in once meat, has reached an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit.

#3: Pan-Fried 

Start by seasoning your steaks simply with salt and pepper. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in your frying pan on high heat. Add the steaks and seak for 30 seconds on each side, then immediately remove from pan. Remember, minute steak cooking quickly so work quickly to avoid burning. To create the perfect gravy, add ½ stick of butter, 1 cup of beef broth, and 3 tablespoons of your favorite barbecue or hoisin sauce for flavor. 

#4: Oven-Roasted 

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a large skillet, briefly brown the minute steak over medium heat. On a large lined baking sheet, arrange steaks in a single layer. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour total. To spice things up, add in 1 can of condensed French onion soup for extra flavor and juice.
