You really do have to drain the grease from hamburger.
I never had growing up.
I always thought the directions where crazy when it called to drain the hamburger.
I never got grease off of it.
This steer Koda and I've butchered is WAY greasy...in my opinion.
Koda thinks I'm crazy.
So look at these pictures.
I guess maybe it really isn't though.
So I talk to my dad about it.
Guess what...I'm not crazy.
The meat I grew up eating was really lean.
Limousine cattle are very lean.
Angus are fatty.
That's why Angus is America's preferred meat.
It is fatty...therefore tastes the best.
Frankly I think they both taste great, if not the same.
Only difference is I have to drain the Angus meat.
So take a look at these steers.
This black one is going to be living in my freezer this spring.
A Full blooded Angus he is.
Now take a look at these mutts.
My dad's steers are a mix of breeds.
Longhorn, Limousine, and some Angus...mostly Limousine though. (Yes there are two Holstiens in the picture, ignore them.)
Angus have fattier meat.
Longhorn are a lean meat too...but they take AGES to finally get to eatin age.
That's another story.
Till next time.
