Some Things About Aussie Grassfed Beef

First of all, it’s grassfed. ONE HUNDRED percent grassfed. Now, that means a lot to your flavor, nutrition and health.

This Aussie Grassfed beef is naturally leaner. And, because of that, it cooks about 30% faster using most methods. Grassfed beef is also healthier for you. That’s well-established. Your tastebuds can tell a difference and your body and health will, too. Just how is it better?

  • Less total fat.
  • More heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
  • More conjugated linoleic acid, a type of fat that’s thought to reduce heart disease and cancer risks.
  • More antioxidant vitamins, such as vitamin E.

I love this recipe. Actually, the inspiration for it came during yoga class. Oh, I know I should empty my mind and not think about recipes, but I was super hungry and wanted to kick off this Summer 2019 beautiful first weekend of June with something spectacular. And, I can assure you that this Aussie Grassfed Dill Pickle Hot Dog Chili did that!
