It has been about a year since I last visited the people at 44 Farms. You most likely recognize the name from the many top quality menus that feature their beef. They feature the beef for good reasons. Such as the fact that 44 Farms refuses to use hormones for their grass fed beef, and have strict quality control over their herd. It is also important to know where your food is grown and how it is handled. The transparency makes a world of difference.  Continue reading

restoby Steven Doyle

Mishima Reserve is the premier brand of US produced Wagyu beef. Raised by a small network of conscientious family ranches where clean air and water, a temperate climate, and the availability of high quality of feeds, all contribute to the extraordinary quality of this beef. Mishima Reserve Wagyu cattle are raised naturally without the use of added hormones or antibiotics. The cattle are bred from the highest quality Wagyu bloodlines bred with top quality Angus cattle. All Mishima Reserve cattle are at least 50% Wagyu, and some have a much higher percentage.

Beef is pretty popular this season, and chef-owner DJ Quintanilla from Resto Gastro Bistro is throwing down a gauntlet-sized haunch from 44 Farms. Gather your taste imagination for this. The slab of bone-in ribeye is cooked with a Chicago-style crust, served with a side of smoked mozzarella creamed spinach, and topped with pats of compound butter made with black garlic, shallots, jalapeno, cracked black pepper, sea salt, green onions and parsley. That smoked mozz is from Deep Ellum and the side is made with butter, heavy cream, cream cheese, and spinach. Drool.    Continue reading

If you have an original photo taken by your phone’s camera, please feel free to send it to us for consideration at steven@cravedfw.com. A brief description is always helpful.   Continue reading
