A few weeks ago, Susanna from the Grass-fed Party asked if I’d like to try some La Cense Beef™ and give some away. Free beef? I was suspicious. Then I Googled “La Cense” and found out that Saveur had called the Montana ranch’s beef “some of the most extraordinary steaks we’ve ever tasted.” And then commenced the squealing and giggling and jumping up and down. And that was just Jeff.
What’s the big deal about La Cense grass-fed beef? The Black Angus cows graze in open pastures, eating grass instead of chemically jacked-up grains, so their beef doesn’t contain the usual hormones, antibiotics and pesticides. It’s also higher in Omega-3 fatty acids and beta-carotene and lower in fat and calories. A 6-ounce steak from La Cense has about 100 fewer calories than a 6-ounce steak from a grain-fed cow.
We tried a small assortment of burgers and steaks, and you can definitely taste the difference. The beef is dry-aged for 19 days, shipped directly from the ranch, and it tastes really bright and clean. The burgers didn’t need any condiments; they were very lean but full of flavor. Jeff grilled the steaks in a pan with a little butter, salt and pepper, and they were amazingly tender. No greasy aftertaste. No heaviness. It’s almost like tasting beef for the first time.
[ad name=”break”]So, we’re partnering with Grass-fed Party to give one of you some La Cense 100% grass-fed beef (two burgers and one petit sirloin) shipped directly from the ranch in Montana to your home.
To enter, head to www.GrassfedParty.com, join, and leave me a comment on this post with your Grass-Fed Party member name. The Grass-fed Party supports a revival of traditional ranching in America – promoting grass-fed ranching as sustainable and healthy for cattle, people and the earth; enriching grazelands; supporting legislation offering tax breaks for ranchers looking to preserve a family ranch; etc.
One entry per person. U.S. residents only.
The contest will end at 11:59 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 31. The winner will be selected at random and announced Jan. 1, so that he or she can start the new year by breaking bread, mashing taters and sharing free beef with a friend.

I was just talking to someone about grass-fed beef! I am a big fan of “cow food for cows, people food for people.” Cows are meant to eat grass, we’re meant to eat grain!
That meat looks delicious. I want a steak right now!
I’ve never tried grass-fed beef, though I’ve been wanting to for a while. One of those things that needs to be moved higher on my to-do list. ;)

Wow. that looks so good! I might have to have a steak for dinner tonight.
Dry aging is so essential. Otherwise meat just ends up with a bloated texture in my opinion! I can’t enter the contest but am happy to learn about this beef company!
