Re: Jersey Beef Taste Test ?

All beef tastes great or can be flavored to taste great, but a tough steak ruins the entire meal.
Not all 'naked' (i.e., undoctored) beef tastes good. I can promise you that.
If butchering / aging was done improperly, the beef can have noticeable off flavors.
If the animal was injured at least a few weeks before butchering, the added stress of the injury can affect the flavor.
And that makes no mention of poor preparation in the kitchen or on the grill.
