CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tallgrass Beef Company and its founder and chairman, Bill Kurtis, officially announce the launch of the 100 percent grass-fed and grass-finished Tallgrass Beef Frank.
“I’ve always wanted to produce the healthiest hot dog in the world. What I didn’t expect was that it is also the tastiest,” Kurtis says. “This hot dog is the start of a revolution to get healthy meat on American tables.”
This isn’t a boast. After eating the frank, noted Chicago food writer Monica Eng said, “This was really the most delicious hot dog I’ve ever tasted.”
The nutritional benefits of the franks are well established. Grass-fed and grass-finished beef contains significantly higher levels of Omega-3 and CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) along with several other health benefits.
Tallgrass Beef Company’s cattle are never administered hormones, sub-therapeutic antibiotics or confined to feed lots. They live their lives in open pastures and are never fed corn or grain. Their beef is guaranteed to be GMO and gluten-free.
Kurtis adds, “We see this new hot dog as a gift to families. That’s why we’ve taken the extra steps to ensure health and safety.”
To introduce this new product, they will kick off the celebration by hosting a recipe contest on its Facebook page for the healthiest and most delicious hot dog recipes. Chicago celebrity chefs Sarah Stegner and George Bumbaris of Prairie Grass Café will kick it off with five recipes of their own. They will prepare and taste the top five shared recipes to declare a Chicago Healthy Hot Dog Champion. One winner gets the “Bill at the Grill” experience where Bill Kurtis will grill for a party of 20 at their home. Contest rules can be found on Tallgrass Beef Company’s Facebook page.
“I’ve been working to establish the grass-fed beef market for eight years. I think our Tallgrass Beef Frank will be the breakthrough, a gateway product that achieves full grass-fed health benefits plus a flavorful tasting experience,” adds Kurtis.
