ELAH VALLEY IS PROUD TO INTRODUCE USDA INSPECTED HEALTHY LONGHORN BEEF TO YOU!!

The Longhorn breed of cattle were introduced to North America in the 1500’s when Spain settled this continent. They were prized for their endurance and ability to find forage when forage was “lean”. This ancestry of the Longhorns make the composition of the Longhorn different from the heavier, fatter beef producers. Longhorns do not put on the fat that you find in other cattle, hence the more healthy beef. You might say, Texas Longhorns are the athletes of the cattle world with their strength and endurance.

Though Texas Longhorn cattle are raised for their beauty of horn, coloring, composition, and disposition there are always some animals that a Longhorn breeder would consider best to be used for beef consumption. Because of the health benefits of Longhorn beef we want to offer this opportunity to the public.

Following are some nutrition facts, cooking tips, and Longhorn facts to help you make your decision to buy delicious Longhorn beef!

COOKING TIPS FOR LONGHORN BEEF

-MOST IMPORTANT – DO NOT OVERCOOK!
-Longhorn beef should be cooked quickly over medium heat
-Longhorn beef, unlike Angus and other beef, cooks 30-50% faster because of the low fat content. Fat acts as an insulator that must be penetrated before Angus beef will start to cook.
-There is very little shrinkage in longhorn beef. The size of raw cut you start with is pretty much what you end up with.
-For Longhorn beef steaks you may want to marinade in your favorite meat marinade and/or tenderize the meat before cooking.
-When grilling Longhorn beef, use a medium hot fire. For extra flavor one might add mesquite or apple chips to the fire.
-No additional fat need be added when cooking Longhorn beef but, if desired, you can spray your pan or grill with olive oil
