I use grass fed beef tenderloin in this recipe (filet mignon is also cut from tenderloin). You can either buy a beef tenderloin roast and cut the beef into cubes for kabobs or buy filet mignon and cut it into cubes. Buying a roast is a little more work but will save you a little money and since this is an expensive cut of beef I recommend saving where you can. This beef happens to be grass fed.
YOU MAY BE WONDERING “WHY GRASS FED?”
I know beef companies proudly tout “corn fed” like it’s a good thing, but it’s not. Corn is not a cow’s natural food, grass is. Corn and other grains make cows sick and when they get sick they are pumped with antibiotics, which are passed right along to you. In fact, conventional grain-fed beef is twice as likely to contain dangerous bacteria resistant to antibiotics than grass fed beef. No bueno.
Grass fed cows make superior meat too. Yep, it tastes better and is better for you. The meat from grass fed cows is higher in the healthy omega 3 fats and lower in the inflammation causing omega 6 fats. And it’s nice to know these cows live a better life than those that live in overcrowded feedlots.
The Chimichurri Sauce:
The chimichurri sauce is easy to make but needs to be made in advance so plan ahead. After making the sauce it needs to sit for a few hours at room temp to let all the flavors come together!
