Why Choose Grass-Fed Beef for your Steak and Cheese Sandwich?

Grass-fed beef comes from cows that are raised on pasture and eat mostly grass, as opposed to grain-fed beef, which comes from cows that are fed a diet of corn, soy, and other additives.

Grass-fed beef has many advantages over grain-fed beef, both for the environment and your health.

Here are some of the benefits of grass-fed beef:

  • Grass-fed beef is more humane and sustainable. Grass-fed cows live in natural conditions, where they can roam freely and graze on grass. They are not confined in feedlots, where they are exposed to stress, disease, and pollution. Grass-fed beef also has a lower carbon footprint, as it requires less fossil fuels, water, and land than grain-fed beef.
  • Grass-fed beef is more nutritious. Grass-fed beef has more omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for brain and heart health, and can lower inflammation and blood pressure. Grass-fed beef also has more conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which is a type of fat that can boost immunity, metabolism, and muscle growth. Grass-fed beef also has more vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin A, vitamin E, iron, zinc, and phosphorus, than grain-fed beef.
  • Grass-fed beef is more flavorful. Grass-fed beef has a richer and more complex taste than grain-fed beef, as it reflects the variety of grasses and herbs that the cows eat. Grass-fed beef also has a better texture and tenderness, as it has less fat and more moisture than grain-fed beef.

If you want to enjoy the benefits of grass-fed beef, there is no better and more convenient way to get it than to order it online from Steak Club, a butcher delivery service that offers premium grass-fed beef and other meats. 

Steak Club sources all its beef from local farms from Poland, the 2nd largest exporter of beef in the European Union

In addition, we check all farms we source cows from using our knowledge of Regenerative Agriculture -> www.adamgrowseden.com following ethical and sustainable practices.

It is hard to find better quality beef (we’ve checked in every European country). We would even say you cannot find this kind of quality beef in supermarkets. 

You can choose from a variety of different cuts and sizes of grass-fed beef, and get it delivered as often as you like to your door vacuum-packed, and in an insulated cardboard (bio-degradable) container with ice pack.

Best Side Dishes to Serve with a Steak and Cheese Sandwich

A steak and cheese sandwich can be enjoyed with a variety of side dishes. Depending on your preference, you can choose from different types of salads, fries, chips, onion rings, coleslaw, and more.

Here are some of the best side dishes to serve with a steak and cheese sandwich:

  • French fries. French fries are a classic and easy side dish that goes well with any sandwich. You can make them in the oven, deep fryer, or air fryer, and season them with salt, pepper, or your favorite spices. 
  • Avocado fries. If you want a more nutritious and creamy alternative to French fries, you can try making avocado fries. These are made by coating sliced avocados with bread crumbs and frying them until crisp. They are rich in healthy fats and vitamins, and taste great with a cheese and steak sandwich. 
  • Onion rings. Onion rings are another crispy and savory side dish that complement the flavor of a cheese and steak sandwich. You can make them with a simple batter of flour, eggs, and beer, and fry them until golden. They are best served hot and crunchy, with some ketchup or mayonnaise. 
  • Coleslaw. Coleslaw is a refreshing and crunchy salad that can balance out the heaviness of a steak and cheese sandwich. It is made with shredded cabbage, carrots, and a creamy dressing of mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, and seasonings. You can also add some raisins, apples, or nuts for some extra sweetness and texture. 
  • Fried okra. Fried okra is a southern delicacy that can add some color and flavor to your cheese and steak sandwich. Okra is a green vegetable that has a slimy texture when cooked, but becomes crispy and delicious when coated with cornmeal and fried. It has a mild and earthy flavor that goes well with the meat and cheese.
  • Cherry tomato salad. Cherry tomato salad is a simple and vibrant side dish that can brighten up your cheese and steak sandwich. It is made with fresh cherry tomatoes, basil, mozzarella cheese, olive oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper. It is a light and refreshing salad that can also be served as an appetizer or a snack.
