WHAT IS THE BEST BEEF?
What is the best beef?
There is a lot of debate over what is the best beef. What breed is the best? How should it be raised? Should it be grain-finished or grass-fed? Are hormones or antibiotics used? Is Dry Aged better than Wet Aged? Does a steak cook better on the bone? Which cut is the most tender or the most flavorful? There is no wrong answer. Some people will opt for the naturally raised but less marbled. Some will prefer a less expensive selection that is dry aged. Some want the most highly marbled piece of beef imaginable. The fact is whatever you like is the right choice and that is what we strive to offer at the DeBragga.com Web store.
Some information to help you make your choices….
The Skinny About Beef
An introduction providing an overview of how the history of raising cattle in this country affects the choices we have today.
Naturally Raised Meats
These livestock are never given hormones to stimulate growth. They are not administered antibiotics, and are never fed any animal based proteins supplements of any kind. EVER. This is referred to in our industry as a “Never Ever Program”. We offer a full line of both beef and pork from Niman Ranch's “Never-Ever Progam”. where the animals are raised humanely on environmentally sustainable ranches. It is our experience that the better the animals are treated- the better the meat they produce -- Learn more about our Naturally Raised Meats here.
