Families across the country are getting back in the kitchen to learn and master new recipes. Here are our favorite grass fed beef recipes that will be your Sunday supper go-tos and family celebration must-haves for years to come!
1. Wholesome Summer Burger
Though we refer our first recipe as a “summer burger,” it’s a crisp, fresh, and filling choice for any season. If you want to show off your skills, use a mandoline to slice the cucumbers into pretty curls. And, if you like our idea below of dressing your burger with a creamy dill sauce, try this recipe from EatingWell.
- 6 Grass Run Farms Individually Quick-Frozen Patties
- 6 whole grain sprouted wheat buns
- 2 heirloom tomatoes, sliced
- 1 cucumber, sliced (or sliced on a mandoline across the long sides of the cucumber)
- Alfalfa sprouts
Grill your Grass Run Farms patties as directed on the package; assemble burgers. Our suggested ingredient order is bottom bun, lettuce, burger, tomato, cucumber, sprouts, and top bun.
2. Roasted Pepper and Goat Cheese Burger
We can’t think of anything better than salty-sweet goat cheese being warmed by a freshly-cooked burger patty. When you top these warm ingredients with refreshing, crunchy red pepper and piquant red onion, this burger becomes a true treat for your family’s taste buds.
- 6 Grass Run Farms Individually Quick-Frozen Patties
- 6 brioche buns
- Curly leaf lettuce
- Goat cheese
- 1 fresh red pepper sliced into rings

Grill your Grass Run Farms patties as directed on the package; slightly sauté onion and pepper slices in a non-stick pan. Assemble all ingredients (our suggested order is bun, lettuce, burger, goat cheese, red pepper, onion, and top bun). If you’d like, add your favorite burger dressing before the top bun (we love red pepper or chipotle aioli!) Enjoy!

Satisfying and simple, this recipe from Beef. It’s What’s For Dinner. uses ground beef, spices, and other pantry staples to create a tender meatloaf you start and finish in the oven. They use potatoes, but you could certainly add carrots and broccoli to the sheet pan when there’s about 20 minutes of cooking time left.
- 1-1/2 lbs Grass Run Farms Ground Beef
- 1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce, divided

- 1 small onion, finely chopped

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Reserve 1/4 cup of tomato sauce; set aside.

Shape beef mixture into 8 x 4 x 2-inch loaf on parchment-lined sheet pan.
Toss potatoes with cooking spray, garlic salt, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Spread potatoes evenly around the meatloaf on the sheet pan. Place sheet pan on the center rack of oven, bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine reserved tomato sauce with brown sugar and mustard. Spread sauce evenly over top of meatloaf, stir potatoes, and continue cooking another 20 minutes or until instant-read thermometer inserted into center of meatloaf registers 160 degrees F.
Remove meatloaf; let stand ten minutes before slicing. Test potatoes for doneness and return to oven if needed while meatloaf rests. Cut meatloaf into slices. Serve with potatoes.
