Beef Recipe Ideas
Grass-fed beef is both a nutritious and satisfying source of protein, but it’s easy to get into a cooking rut for how to prepare it. We have you covered with plenty of ideas for how to turn your lovely New Zealand grass-fed, pasture raised beef into a delicious meal.
One of the most luxurious treatments of a beautiful New Zealand grass-fed beef tenderloin is to wrap it up in puff pastry. Seem difficult? The trick to a no-mess, no-fuss Beef Wellington is all in some handy plastic wrap. The beef tenderloin is briefly seared before being encased in pastry and a savory mushroom and prosciutto filling, cooking to a delicate medium-rare as it bakes. Golden pastry and juicy, perfectly cooked beef make for a real showstopper.
PRIME RIB WITH HORSERADISH CREAM
Prime rib is a wonderful way to showcase some delicious New Zealand grass-fed and pasture raised beef. Prime rib doesn’t refer to prime-grade beef, but actually refers to the part of the cow it comes from: the primal rib. Prime rib, often called standing rib roasts, can be as small as 2 ribs and go all the way up 8 ribs wide. A large beef roast like prime rib is a great idea for feeding a crowd. We love this standing rib roast paired with a sharp horseradish cream, roasted potatoes and spring vegetables.
Grilled Ribeye Steaks with Smashed Potatoes and Herb Sauce
Grilled steaks must be one of the best effort to reward ratios for cooking beef. Season with salt and pepper and let the grill do the rest. If you are struggling to come up with ideas for what to cook for dinner, you can’t go wrong with steaks. Using quality New Zealand grass-fed and pasture raised beef makes all the difference. We add a little refresh to the standard meat and potatoes with a bright herb sauce that you will want to put on everything.
