Pro Cooking Tips for Ground Beef

Add Fat

Coat pan with olive oil before browning to enhance the flavor and prevent the beef from drying out.

Handle with Care

The secret to juicy flavorful burgers, meatloaves and meatballs is gentle handling. Overmixing results in a firm compact texture after cooking.

Don’t Press

Keep the flavorful juices in by not pressing down on burgers while cooking. No one likes a dry burger. No one.

Keep Your Beef Safe and Delicious

Here are a few helpful tips to safely freeze and thaw Goodness Grazecious Grass-Fed Organic Ground Beef:

  • Keep refrigerated or frozen until ready to use.
  • Thaw frozen ground beef in the refrigerator.
  • Cook until brown or 160°F. Refrigerate within two hours. Use within 3-4 days.

Tips for Better Burgers

Follow these tips to prepare delicious burgers! Switch it up and be creative with toppings, too.

  • Start with Goodness Grazecious 85% / 15%.
  • Shape into ¾-inch thick patties.
  • Grill over ash-covered coals or preheated gas grill on medium heat. Grilling at high temperatures results in a burger that is burnt on the outside and uncooked on the inside.
  • Cook burgers to medium (160°F) doneness– about 11 to 13 minutes.
  • Turn once and never flatten the patty!
  • For cheeseburgers, add during the last minute.
  • Change it up with different cheeses! Try brie, cheddar, smoked gouda, muenster, or blue cheese.
  • Get creative with flavor! Try wasabi & chutneys, mustards & mayonnaises, or salsas & hot sauces.
  • Make it unique with unexpected toppings. Try grilled bell peppers, grilled onions, avocado, hummus, refried beans, pickled vegetables or kimchi, spinach or baby arugula.
