Grass-fed Longhorn Beef
AT TWIN CREEKS RANCH, our USDA and Texas-Certified beef comes from grass-fed, grass-finished, pure Texas Longhorn cattle. Longhorns are naturally lean and the cattle in our beef program are never given steroids, growth hormones or antibiotics making our beef all-natural, full of flavor and good for you!
Delicious and Nutritious:
Besides being flavorful and lean, longhorn beef has less saturated fat, cholesterol and calories than other meat, including white meat. Studies have shown that eating lean beef can increase the 'good' cholesterol and reduce the 'bad' cholesterol in people with elevated cholesterol levels. Longhorn beef is a good source of protein, zinc, Vitamin B12, Omega oils, iron and selenium, which can reduce the risk of heart disease.
Cuts and Prices:
We have carefully considered the leanness of grass-fed beef and offer the cuts that we have had success with. Additionally, since grass-fed longhorn beef cooks 30-50% faster than grain-fed beef, we offer cooking tips for each cut for our customers. Our prices are competitive with other grass-fed longhorn beef providers and with stores like Whole Foods, plus we offer unique cuts sometimes difficult to find, like marrow bones, trip-tip roasts, tongue and osso buco.
