Colorado’s Best Beef Wins Over Local Chefs


It’s a plate perfect for a brisk fall evening: a warm and filling tri-tip roast, braised in Pilsner and served with caramelized pearl onions, roasted parsley potatoes, and slender baby carrots. The dish, Le Grand Bistro & Oyster Bar‘s Alsatian braised beef, is one of many on local menus that showcase the grass-fed, natural beef from Boulder-based Colorado’s Best Beef Company.

Chefs at Jax Fish House, Z Cuisine, Terroir Restaurant in Longmont, and Arugula Bar e Ristorante in Boulder understand the taste, health, and environmental advantages that come with using antibiotic-, steroid-, and hormone-free meat from a local producer like Colorado’s Best Beef.


If you haven’t tried the company’s dry-aged beef—all of which comes from Charolais cattle, which are renowned for tenderness—give the hamburger at Jax, the carpaccio at Z Cuisine, or the braised beef at Le Grand a try.

Bonus: If you prefer experimenting at home, order from the company’s extensive online menu.
