What is ROSE VEAL?
We eat young pork, young sheep, and young chicken. All at the age they reach puberty when they are the perfect mix of tender and rich flavored. Rose Veal is the equivelant of these, but in BEEF.
I had a distaste for the way conventional veal was produced. So, I did my research on the subject, and found that ROSE Veal is Grassfed Veal. Raised naturally, on the cow. That’s something I can do, and I can sleep with a clear concience. Our Rose Veal calves have a great life, and are the 9-13 month old version of 100% certified grassfed beef. There is less fat, and the meat is pink instead of rich red because young animals do not process iron in their body yet at that age. If we want to be sustainable farming, we need to do better and eat more rose veal. It is slightly more expensive than finished beef, as you’d expect, but the quality is well worth the minimal extra cost. Look for steaks that are about the same size as a mature beef, and all other similar cuts. I also read that veal is a healthier choice than chicken and mature beef. It will not weigh you down after eating either.
