However, am I the only person who abhors the taste of grass-fed beef? Ugh. It tastes like a completely different animal--one with which I am not familiar!


That's very broad statement. What kind of cattle? Where were they raised? At what age were they slaughtered? When was it slaughtered? What were they fed during the months there was no grass? Which cuts? Were they fed any supplemental feed?

I assure you I could serve you a grass-fed burger and you wouldn't have a clue that it was.

Wow, I guess I didn't know that the grass feeding label was so complex. I'll have to pay more attention, but don't see myself buying it or ordering it if there is a corn-fed alternative.

Same here. I have had plenty of grass-fed beef in North America, South America and Europe. I'll take good ol' Midwest American, corn-fed beef.

My favorite is Kansas City strip steak and after that T-bone. I used to order medium-rare but now find myself preferring medium. Love with either steak sauce or herbed butter, sometimes bleu cheese.

Agreed, a blend of bleu cheese and butter on a Kansas City or New York strip steak can be supercalifragalisticexpealidotious.

My favorite is a medium Sinte (Sirloin) but very few kosher restaurants here in Israel get it right.
At Eldad V'zehu in Yerushalayim and Bistro 56 in Herzeliya - it is always a perfect medium.
Recently up north, ordered it 2 nights in a row: at Havat Ha'Jilabun in the Golan Heights the medium turned into well-done; while at Bayit BaGalil it was a perfect medium.

I voted t-bone, but I think cause that's what I had most recently. At NG, in Neve Tzedek, cooked with, if I remember correctly, an IPA, courtesy of Dancing Camel. It was, as should be, nicely charred on the outside. And, as the truest of cliches continues, nicely rare on the inside. About as big as my head (I'm not a freak or anything but I do have a well sized afro) there was enough to share with two female dining partners – my mom and my lady friend (not sure if this makes me sexist but it does make me human and heterosexual) and then bring some home for leftovers. What a pleasure. And my dog thought so too. After I had my go at the huge, glorious bone, I gave her all that was left. Makes me wish I was a dog. I get the feeling I'm missing the best part. I mean, I don't eat steak or bone like that. Lying on the ground, wrap around smile, ignorant of anything and everything that occurs in my environment while grabbing all animal components between my two hands, eating, as if the brown shirts were just a couple doors away, yet intent on enjoying my portion as if it was all that was left for my existence.

So, yeah, t-bone.
