The history of beef goes back almost to the start of civilization. DNA evidence at archaeological sites has revealed that a now-extinct relative of the modern cow, a type of wild ox called an auroch, was domesticated for food more than 10,000 years ago in the region around Turkey. Beef was adopted by cuisines around the world and can be found in just about any culture that can support grazing. This meat has an umami, savory flavor and is great for hearty, stick-to-your-ribs dishes. If you’re looking to create your own flavor profiles, beef can stand up to bold and flavorful herbs and spices. Want a shortcut? We also have a wide variety of rich seasoning blends that work well with beef!
