All Natural, Chemical and Drug Free Beef

Over the last ten years I have eaten less and less beef and one of my daughters has given up all meats due to the lack of flavor, hormones, antibiotics and methods used in production. Now Montana Legend is one of a small number of companies dedicated to providing beef that is beef from cattle that are cattle and not production units. Give them a look and see if you might want to try some real beef. I warn you, you might find it hard to go back to the old stuff once you give them a try.

Test the two recipes below.

Montana Legend has committed to producing grass fed beef from Angus cattle raised without antibiotics, hormones and other additives. Their beef is hand cut and has a true flavor that many only dimly remember. Another important fact is that there are NO animal byproducts in the feed to spread disease to the herd.

When I was a child I remember beef having a rich 'taste', a taste that seems to have disappeared over the decades. In my late teens I had some grass fed beef from an Uncle's ranch, what a difference in taste, after that I sought out grass fed when I could. In the last 15 years it seems to have become almost impossible to find grass fed, chemical free beef that is consistent in quality. Then I learned about Montana Legend and the natural Angus beef they have been producing since 1901.

Words from their own site express their methods better than I can...

" No growth hormones. No antibiotics. No exceptions. There's a reason our beef tastes better and is better for you: we don't rush the process, and our cows don't do drugs.

Our all-natural beef is healthier for you, tastes fresher, and is more tender and juicy.

No hormones or antibiotics

Growth hormones and antibiotics are not injected into the animals, and they are not added to their feedstuffs (hay, corn, barley, grass).

Humanely raised

We have set strict standards that detail every aspect of raising Montana Legend cattle—from health to handling to holding facilities. ...we treat our cows like royalty...

Grass-fed, granola-finished™

Our cattle are fed only the highest quality grain and hay, with no antibiotic or hormone additives. Montana Legend staff and veterinarians maintain these standards by doing spot inspections and feed analysis on the ranch.

No animal byproducts

For most of their lives, our cattle are grass-fed. For the last three months or so, their diet includes chopped hay, barley, and a touch of corn for flavor. They are never fed sileage, and they are never fed any animal byproducts. "

When grilling your meat be careful not to puncture or crack the natural seared surface (keep the juices in). Cook the meat about 3/4 done then baste with sauce. Cooked outside or in watch that the heat stays constant and use a pan to keep drippings out of the coals or heat element. Burning drippings can cause a fire and can give your meat an off flavor.
