These days it seems more and more people are trying to make better decision when it comes to the meat they buy. For this easy casserole recipe, you might try using some certified organic beef or some grass fed beef for the base of the recipe. When you purchase certified organic beef, it has to come from a production system that is fully verifiable. That means that all the information is collected on the history of each animal in the program from start to finish. All of the history, the veterinary care, and what the animal is fed must be kept track of. Also, for beef to be certified as organic, all of the cattle should be born and raised on certified organic pasture. All of the certified organic cattle do not receive antibiotics and never receive any growth-promoting hormones. Certified organic cattle only eat certified organic grains, with corn considered a grain and grasses. The cattle must have unrestricted outdoor access. Certified organic ground beef ensures that the meat you are buying comes from happy cows who were fed a healthy diet of organic grains and grasses, and was able to have outdoor access and fresh air. Buying organic beef is something you can feel good about when eating the meat.
Free range grass fed beef ensures that the cows are not fed with corn or soy based diet. Free range beef is beef that has been raised on grass pasture. The cows have a diet full of nutrient-rich grasses and pasture forage. Hopefully, the cows have been able to get plenty of outdoor time to graze and get some fresh air. Grass-fed cows eat a diet of mostly grass, while grain-fed cows eat mostly corn and soy (which is unnatural to them) during the latter part of their lives. So while most cows start out on pasture, drinking milk and eating grass. It is, however, the conventionally raised cows that are later moved to feedlots and fed grain-based feeds, while grass-fed cows may continue to live on grassland. Purchasing organic beef and grass fed beef is a good choice for the animals and the environment, and you can feel better about the beef that you eat.
