Moon Meadow Natural Beef from Pescadero

Melanie Wong | May 30, 201506:17 PM

Last month at a San Jose barbecue contest that had open judging where I could have a conversation with the entrants, the deep flavor of the beef in one of the grilled tri-tip entries knocked me out. Considering that it was about the most unattractive in the field, it says a lot that the inherent rich beefiness of the meat could win me over. It also looked leaner and less marbled than the rest, but turned out to be quite tender and silky in the mouth.

I asked about the source and learned that this was Moon Meadow beef from cattle pasture-raised locally in Pescadero. It's dry-aged for two weeks. The beef and pork from Moon Meadow are sold at farmers markets in Belmont on the Peninsula and in the South Bay (see website).
