EMAIL QUESTIONS TO: eathealthy@grasslandbeef.com


Dr. Serrano,

I have been on statins of one type or another for the past 21 years.  I have asked whatever doctor I had at the time to take me off cholesterol medication.  Finally my present doctor agreed to after asking a number of times in the past.
I would like to know what type of diet I should stick to.  Presently I avoid all processed foods and do my own cooking and baking at home and eat out very seldom.  I also order my beef from U.S. Wellness Meats, consume lots of vegetables and fruit and watch the labels closely.
I do senior aerobic exercises 5-6 times a week.  My supplements consist of fish oil, vitamin D, vitamin K-2, ubiquinone, tumeric, low-dose aspirin and calcuim.  I also take a supplement for my arthritis.
Your comments would be appreciated.  Thank you.

Dear Germaine,

Congratulations on your achievement, but sadly I can not help because you have not given enough information.  This will be like a consult, and I am going to make some suggestions that will prevent your levels from going up.  Cholesterol is not a sign of heart disease but of other things affecting your body.
  1. Check your testosterone levels because high cholesterol can mean low hormones
  2. Eliminate sugars
  3. No fruit juices
  4. No canola or soybean oil
  5. Keep grains or simple sugars low
  6. Keep cheese products low
  7. Keep intake of fruits for after workouts
  8. No dairy creamer
  9. Don't consume coffee before the test
  10. Eat more vegetables
  11. Take a good multivitamin like Multifood IV
  12. Take a fish oil, omega-6 product, like alpha omega -3
Good Luck,

Dr. Serrano

Red Wine Braised Short Rib Sliders
Ingredients: Red Wine Braised Short Rib Sliders
  • 3 lbs beef short ribs
  • 1 oz tomato paste
  • 1 fresh thyme bunch
  • 1 qt beef bone stock
  • 1 yellow onion, peeled and cut into large chunks
  • 1 carrot, large, peeled and cut into large chunks
  • 1 garlic, whole head, cut in half
  • 1 bottle of good red wine, Cabernet or Zinfandel
  • 1/2 red onion, cut into thin strips
  • 1/4 red cabbage, cut into thin strips
  • 2 oz red wine vinegar
  • 1 oz sugar
  • 3 oz olive oil
  • 1 oz unsalted butter
  • 8-12 small mini Brioche buns (available in fine bakeries)
  • 1 t coriander seed, whole
  • 8-12 raw cheese slices
  • 1 fresh wild arugula bunch
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Braised Short Ribs:
  1. Start by getting a large sauté pan hot over high heat. Once the pan is hot add the olive oil and sear the salt and pepper seasoned short ribs until golden brown.
  2. Once the short ribs are golden brown remove from the pan and place in a deep casserole dish. Drain off half the oil and add the cut vegetables above.
  3. Sauté the vegetables until they become golden brown, add the tomato paste and cook for another 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the red wine.
  4. Return to the heat and reduce by half. Once reduced add the bone stock, thyme, coriander and reduce again by another half. Pour this mixture over the short ribs in the casserole dish, cover with aluminum foil and bake at 325 degrees for approximately four to five hours.
  5. The time will vary depending on the style of your oven; you can tell the short ribs are done when your knife can easily pass through the meat with little resistance.
  6. Allow the short ribs to cool for several hours and absorb all the wonderful flavors they where just cooked in.
Pickled Red Onion and Cabbage Salad:
  1. In a small pot add the vinegar, sugar and a pinch of salt, bring to a boil. Add the red onion and cabbage and cook for approximately four to five minutes, or until the onions and cabbage are tender.
  2. You will see the cabbage will turn a bright red. Stir in the butter and then adjust the seasonings with salt and pepper. Reserve warm.
  1. Cut the brioche buns in half and toast in an oven until golden brown.
  2. Place a nice size piece of short rib on the bun, season with sea salt and top with the red cabbage mixture and arugula. Put on the top bun and serve!
  3. Add raw cheese slice to each slider.

What Our Customers Are Saying


Not too long ago, I ordered a punch of Beef Snack Stickspemmican from you to give it a try.  In order to get the weight up to the minimum required I ended up ordering a bunch of your packages of beef sticks.  These things are amazing!  They are absolutely delicious and are WAY better than any mainstream, chemical laden, poor meat quality product out there.

Just wanted to send you an email to say great job and thank you!
