We think Wendell Barry in “The Pleasures of Eating” sums up our view:
“ ...the thought of good pasture and of the calf contentedly grazing favors the steak...
 you eat with understanding and gratitude. A significant part of the pleasure of eating is
in one’s accurate consciousness of the lives and the world from which food comes.”...

STEAKS
BNB rib-eye, New York strips, filets, and sirloins will be about 3/4” thick. Cooking them over a grill or in a hot cast iron pan is optimal to capture Brandon Natural Beef’s flavor. Gently pound steaks in Cryovac packaging to create a level surface. Remove steaks from packaging and pat dry. Lightly salt and pepper the steaks (you can also put a favorite rub on them).

GRILL
If cooking on a grill, rub a bit of olive oil on the steaks. Place steaks over hot coals. Cook over medium-high heat for 2½ to 3 minutes per side for rare/medium-rare. 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium rare/medium. Do not overcook. Transfer to a plate, tent with foil and let rest 5 minutes. Enjoy! We like our steaks plain but you can certainly make your own your favorite sauce, using the brown bits left in the pan.

CAST IRON PAN ON STOVETOP
Heat a cast iron pan (or heave bottom pan) to hot. Add a touch of oil to the hot pan and add the steaks to the pan. They should sizzle when they hit the pan. Turn the heat to medium high and cook over medium-high heat for 2½ to 3 minutes per side for rare/medium-rare. 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium rare/medium. Do not overcook. Transfer to a plate, tent with foil and let rest 5 minutes.
