Publisher Comments:

Pure Beef is the most up-to-date cookbook that addresses the natural and grassfed beef trend, the fastest growing market segment in the $75 billion cattle industry. Today, we can choose to eat beef that is more ethical than chicken, more virtuous than tofu, and more sustainable than produce. Pure Beef answers essential questions: Why eat beef? What kind should I eat? Where can I buy it? How should I cook it? Leaner grassfed beef requires a different way of cooking steaks and burgers to perfection and Pure Beef will show home cooks the way to cook every cut of beef.

There is nothing wrong with eating meat; it's just the amounts we typically eat that are not healthy. Pure Beef upends the traditional beef hierarchy that promotes 12-ounce portions of big steaks and premium roasts and helps us think more moderately about beef consumption. The more than 150 recipes provide a balanced approach to beef's healthfulness, economy, and sustainability. A full-color photo insert highlights a dozen or more recipes and includes an updated beef cut chart.

Review:

"Oregon's Wallowa Valley is home to food journalist Curry, as well as the source of her in-depth knowledge of how to raise, slaughter, and prepare grass-fed cattle. In the first half of this, her first book, she shares the wisdom she has gleaned from local ranchers and the practices she has polished over years of experience. The reader is quick to buy in once Curry describes how grass-fed differs from grain-fed beef: 'red as a beet instead of rosy pink... compact and firm like a relaxed bicep, not slack and yielding.' There are lessons on 'how to cook like a butcher' and how to make the most of cuts that are generally leaner and smaller than their chemically enhanced, corn-stuffed counterparts. Part two of the book contains more than 125 recipes that span a vast spectrum of influences. In a chapter dedicated to steaks, variations range from chicken-fried to filet mignon in brandy sauce. And a section entitled 'Global Beef Cuisine' travels from Korean barbecue and Turkish kabobs to Argentinean empanadas. A short list of online foodie databases is provided to aid in locating sources for pasture-raised meats. While a glossary of choice steak cuts is de rigueur, Curry raises the bar with additional glossaries of choice bones (for making great soups and stocks) and choice charcuterie cuts.

I can't wait for this book to come out. I love the taste and health benefits of grassfed beef. I am always looking for ways to cook it that enhances its flavor and value. Traditional means of preparing corn fattened beef does not do it justice. I anticipate this will be a valuable addition to my kitchen library.
