Today, many agricultural farmers and producers are “beefing” up their stock by injecting them with hormones, antibiotics, and steroids. Many people do not prefer to consume steaks that have these added chemicals and prefer that their steaks were natural.
Natural steaks come from cattle that were grain fed and did not receive any of the above chemicals. You will need to check the label of the steaks to make sure that it states, “natural steaks”, to ensure the quality of your steaks.
To better enhance the flavor and taste of natural steaks, you should consider purchasing natural steaks that have been “dry aged”. Dry aging is the process of hanging beef in a dry environment to age for a period of 1-3 weeks. In the past the majority of all beef including natural steaks were dry aged.
