Editorial Reviews

Righteous Porkchop:  Finding a Life and Good Food Beyond Factory Farms"Lynne Curry's Pure Beef is useful, engaging, and important.  Anyone wanting to improve their diet should be migrating toward grass-based animal foods.  And for those who do, Pure Beef will offer invaluable guidance and support."Publishers Weekly"(Curry) shares the wisdom she has gleaned from local ranchers and the practices she has polished over years of experience. The reader is quick to buy in once Curry describes how grass-fed differs from grain-fed beef…the book contains more than 125 recipes that span a vast spectrum of influences. In a chapter dedicated to steaks, variations range from chicken-fried to filet mignon in brandy sauce…While a glossary of choice steak cuts is de rigueur, Curry raises the bar with additional glossaries of choice bones (for making great soups and stocks) and choice charcuterie cuts."LA Times"A cookbook with a meat slant, this won't tell you how to cut meat, but it will explain clearly and in simple language what the different cuts are good for and give you recipes for using them."
