Disclosure: I am a brand ambassador for True Aussie Beef & Lamb. (Yes, I’m very lucky to be working with a great company!) And, I’m compensated for creating recipes and posts, including this one, ‘Aussie Slow Cooker Grassfed Pale Ale Beef Pot Roast’, for them. Believe me, I don’t partner with any brand unless I truly believe in and support their product(s) and the kind of company it is. One that’s shares similar values as I. Most importantly, I only work for food companies whose products I would feed my family and friends! All these opinions and the creation of this recipe are credited to me.
Beef is not created equal. At least in my mind and from my tastebud perspective. One hundred percent grassfed beef is far superior to grain-fed beef. And, yes, I can taste a difference. If you’ve never tasted 100% grassfed beef from Down Under, then you must. I’ve served it to many many of my friends and family, and, invariably, they can taste the difference. They recognize the difference in texture and flavor.
Now I admit, buying Aussie 100% grassfed beef, well, most all grassfed beefs for that matter, is more expensive. But, when you’re talking about your health, your heart and the functioning of your body, what price will you pay to put good stuff in it. Even if I can have beef only once every week or two weeks, I’d rather buy 100% grassfed and have beef less often than not. It’s all about making the right choices for yourself. And, I’m pretty good at stretching dollars and stretching grassfed beef!
Why Aussie Grassfed Beef
That’s because one-hundred percent grassfed beef, like the kind from True Aussie Beef, is naturally leaner. Because of that, it cooks about 30% faster using most methods. Grassfed beef is also healthier for you. And, 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.
