Worth a trip to Ann Arbor?  From a Whole Foods press release…


Whole Foods Market® Ground Grass-Fed Beef One-Day Sale
Featuring $4.99 per pound beef
AUSTIN, Texas (August 27, 2012)At Whole Foods Market stores nationwide, ground grass-fed beef will be on sale for just $4.99/lb Friday, September 7 (10 lb limit per person). Grass-fed cattle graze on the feed that best suits their digestive systems—grass. As for all Whole Foods Market beef, the animals are raised without antibiotics or added hormones, on ranches that have been certified to Global Animal Partnership’s 5-Step™ Animal Welfare Rating program.

Grass-fed beef is a leaner choice than grain-fed, and it has a more favorable ratio of omega fatty acids. Since it’s lower in fat, grass-fed beef runs the risk of drying out or becoming overcooked more quickly than grain-finished beef. Here are some recommended cooking tips from our butchers:

· Don’t cook grass-fed beef cold; it is best when removed from the refrigerator about 15 minutes prior to cooking.

· When cooking on the grill, let the flames burn down more than is recommended for other meat. Also, it doesn’t need as much cooking time.

· When cooking in the oven, lower the oven’s cooking temperature by 25°F, and the cooking time will stay about the same.

· Always use tongs, never a fork, to turn your beef; don’t press or flatten during cooking in order to retain precious juices.

These are a couple of Whole Foods Market favorite grass-fed beef recipes:

· Apple and Cheddar Grass-fed Beef Burgers

· Lebanese-Style Grass-Fed Beef Kabobs

· Or use grass-fed in any of these 25 ground beef recipes
