HOW DO YOU COOK LONGHORN BEEF?
Since Longhorn Beef is lean, it will cook 30-50% faster than an angus steak. If you overcook the meat, it will become tough. Medium rare, or a light pink, is the most 'done' we recommend cooking our Longhorn. Here are some recommended recipes.
WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT LONGHORN BEEF?
Longhorn beef is very lean. This makes it a heart healthy option for those looking for ways to be more thoughtful on their calorie, fat, and cholesterol intake. See the study below done by Texas A&M.
The cows at Good Enough Ranch are Longhorn Heifers and Bulls. These cows are excellent at foraging for their own food and are moved from pasture to pasture every 12 days. They are currently grass fed and only receive feed as treats and hay as supplemental forage based on the weather. They are not given any steroids or medication.
