For a lean piece of flank meat like a London Broil or some steaks, a combination of tenderizing the meat by hand and marinating before cooking will ensure a moist, delicious product.

Braised Grassfed Beef Short Ribs

White Oak Pastures Team

We prefer to braise grassfed beef short ribs in a flavorful stock and aromatics. By slow cooking them while they're almost submerged, these short ribs end up so tender, you could eat them with a spoon. Try grassfed beef short ribs with a rich, comforting side, like creamy polenta, greens, a slice of fresh bread, mashed potatoes, or risotto!

The significant difference between commodity sausage and pastured sausage comes down to the way the animals are raised, as well as the processing method of the farm. Our farm offers a range of sausages from six different species. Our sausages are slightly leaner, better seasoned, and made from higher-quality cuts than the average sausage you may find in the grocery store.

If you’ve been stuck in a same-old, same-old taco rut, Tacos de Lengua will give you fresh taco inspiration.
