What Sets Certified Piedmontese Beef Apart
Certified Piedmontese isn’t just any other beef brand that you may think. They have such a unique, healthy and appealing way that they operate. Let’s dive into the details on what sets Certified Piedmontese apart from the others:
- Their cows come from the rare Piedmontese breed of cattle from Italy – less than 1% of cattle in the United States are Piedmontese, but Certified Piedmontese has the largest herd of these cattle.
- The beef is naturally healthier, but does not sacrifice on flavor and tenderness.
- The beef has fewer calories, less fat and higher protein per ounce than beef from other breeds.
- The cattle are raised naturally without hormones, antibiotics or steroids – and on ranches here in the Midwest!
- You get the taste of real beef since it is naturally cleaner and leaner.
- Certified Piedmontese has a ranch-to-fork process that ensures traceability, environmental sustainability and humane handling.
Now, I don’t know about you guys, but COUNT ME IN! Not only are all of those amazing qualities of the Certified Piedmontese brand enough to get you on board, but tasting their product will have you hooked for life. I sure am!
Grass Fed, Grass Finished Ground Beef
Not only is Certified Piedmontese Beef naturally leaner and more of a pure beef flavor, but they also offer a Grass Fed, Grass Finished Beef line! If you’re not familiar with the cattle industry, this is an amazing feat! That means, the cattle are as natural as possible – eating grass as intended to do so! I’ve found that the Grass Fed, Grass Finished Ground Beef has such a true “beef” flavor. Which is perfect for these meatballs! Here’s what Certified Piedmontese says about their Grass Fed, Grass Finished Line:
“Certified Piedmontese grass fed, grass finished beef, is source verified, nutritious, high-quality tender beef that has been raised humanely with the cattle and the land and its resources in mind. There is simply no reason to settle for less when choosing your grass fed, grass finished beef.
Lean, all-natural, and grass finished Certified Piedmontese stew beef is a great way to make healthier soups, stews, and braises. Cook these low and slow, and they’ll become a healthy, fall-apart tender addition to some of your favorite comfort recipes! All Certified Piedmontese beef is verified all-natural and raised without hormones or antibiotics.”
How to Make Red Wine Beef Stew
If you ask me, there is nothing better than a pot of stew simmering on the stovetop. Talk about comfort! This beef stew is just that: pure comfort! With a little added flare from the red wine. Trust me, it’s a game-changer!
Start by drying off the stew meat with a paper towel. This step is important because it helps the flour coat the meat perfectly, which then helps the meat sear to a nice, golden brown. It’s all about building layers of flavor!
Onion and aromatics get sautéd in the bottom of the same pan while the beef rests on a side plate.
Up next: the fun part! Pour in the red wine to deglaze the bottom of the pan. I love the way that it sizzles and bubbles! Use a wooden spoon to scrape all those wonderful, flavorful bits on the bottom of the pan.
Then, in goes the beef stock, seared beef pieces, potatoes, carrots and herbs. They all simmer together until decadently tender!
Finally, grab a bowl and ladle yourself a steamy bowl of Red Wine Beef Stew. Grab some garlic bread for dunking and dig in!
How to Serve
As if this stew couldn’t get any better, I love how flexible it can be when it comes to serving! Need a romantic, date night dinner? Red Wine Beef Stew. Or, a comforting bowl of stew for a cold weeknight meal? It’s got you covered!
Soups and stews naturally get better overnight and I am always on board for some leftovers! Re-heat this stew on the stovetop or microwave to serve up some delicious leftovers.
