Grass Fed Beef Recipes


There are lots of ways to cook grass fed beef from a fancy herbal stew to blackened on the outside over a hot fire and bloody in the middle. Some people even like it raw though I tend to think that cooking in various ways adds different flavors to the meat providing variety in your meals. The following recipes are just a few of our favorite ways of preparing beef. These are provided by friends and family and are available for your enjoyment. Or, start with one of these recipes and adjust it to your own liking.


Drew created this outstanding hamburger. Unfortunately, he does not remember what he put in it. I see some Orvis Ranch grass fed beef, avacado, cheese, mushrooms and a bunch of other good things.

After some armtwisting Drew is finally willing to let us know what is in the Drewberger.

Drew: My burger is stuffed with Apple wood smoked gouda and topped with Munster. And just some good old mayo and probably a little salt pepper and minced garlic in the meat. And of course a little smoke from either mesquite, apple wood, or hickory chips that I was experimenting with. A whole wheat bun with oats. And you already know about the avocado. Good old "California style" burger.


Drew and Gabe got together to build a better hamburger than the Drewberger. Gabe designed this delicious thing and Drew handled the barbecue.

Here are the specs: orvis grass fed beef mixed with smoked paprika, double smoked bacon, Himalayan salt, sweet baby rays, soy sauce, brown sugar, minced garlic. Stuffed with cheddar cheese. Bbq'd, Apple wood chip smoked. Topped with grilled red onions, grilled romaine, grilled portabella caps, Swiss cheese, Roma tomatoes, and a little thousand island. On potato buns.

That looks soooo good!

Snow Ranch Beef Stew

Snow Ranch beef stew has been prepared by Mom for as long as I can remember and is never exactly the same every time she prepares it. This particular recipe was featured on the 50 Year Anniversary, Campora Propane Calendar.
Serves 8
2 T Flour
2 lb. Beef Stew Meat cut into 3/4 cubes.
2 T oil (Canola)
1 pkg. dry Onion Soup Mix.
1 C Red Wine, hearty
4 Potatoes (2 lb).
8 each Boiling Onions.
1/2 lb. Carrots, Baby, packaged and pealed.
1 T flour.
2 T cold water.
Salt and Pepper to taste.
  1. Add the flour to the beef cubes and coat. Saute in Canola oil.
  2. Sprinkle soup mix over beef; add wine and simmer slowly until beef is tender. Approx 90 min.
  3. Peel potatoes and cut into 1 inch chunks. If onions are small enough they can remain whole.
  4. Add potatoes, onions, and carrots to stew and cook. Add water to stew if necessary. Cook 60 minutes.
  5. Mix flour and cold water and add to stew to thicken the sauce. Season to taste.

I've got to get a picture of this but it tends to disappear before I can get my camera out.

Dad's Favorite Spaghetti Sauce

I learned to make this while I was in college. A roommate who had been to Italy taught me. I had never had sweet spaghetti sauce before and liked it so much I have been making it ever since. My kids always want Dad's spaghetti sauce and not some stuff out of a jar. This stuff is good on spaghetti or on noodles of any shape. Italian spices are mostly oregano and thyme amd come in a big plastic bottle at Costco. If you need to stretch the sauce to feed more hungry family add a second package of spaghetti and the can of tomato sauce and you can feed 6 to 8 people.

Serves 4
1 package of Spaghetti (optional, add a second to stretch the recipe)
1 lb. hamburger
½ onion
1 C Mushrooms
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 can tomato paste
1 can tomato sauce (optional, to stretch the recipe)
1 cup sugar
1 T Italian Spices
1 Tsp. salt
1 Tsp pepper
  1. Boil a pot of water, add a little salt and the spaghetti.
  2. Sauté the hamburger and the onions in a large frying pan until the beef is well done.
  3. Add the mushrooms and continue to sauté a few minutes more.
  4. Turn the burner down low.
  5. Drain the excess grease.
  6. Add the Stewed Tomatoes and Tomato Paste.
  7. If you need to stretch the recipe a little, add the Tomato Sauce and a second package of spaghetti in step 1.
  8. Add the sugar, Italian spices, salt and pepper.
  9. Stir until it just starts to bubble.
  10. The spaghetti should be done by now.
  11. Drain the spagehetti and serve with the sauce.

Add a green salad or some fresh homemade applesauce as shown in the picture. Make sure you make enough for seconds, as everyone will be back.
