If you are a steak lover you are in the wrong country.
The hot climate here is not conducive to producing more than utility grade beef,
I have read that it depends on the grass.
The best beef comes from areas that have a real winter.
In the US its Nebraska.
In the DR its buy imported beef if you like a good steak.

I disagree.

Most of the beef in the US is full of hormones and doesn't have the taste of Dominican "Nacional" beef or #1 Argentine beef. Both of these countries rely mostly on the natural feeding of the cow.

In most cases, the highly touted "American Imported" beef on DR restaurant menus is hard and disappointing. I also think the imported beef from the US is probably the worst grade. Regardless, of what the B.S. menu states.

What's Dominican National Beef lol

The problem with local beef is no aging.

The grass that Dominican beef feed on does not have much nutritional value And that is why DR beef sucks. The cattle in this country are inferior to the cattle in north America and other first world countries as pointed out by Leonel fernandez yrs. ago. they are called come and go cattle. 2020 you don't have a clue.

I have read that the taste depends on the quality of the grass

As I saw on youtube you can apparently age your own local beef with a fridge and get a dehumidifier and temp control from amazon

In the 1980s there was a lot of beef expoeted to the USA . The cattle are basically the same, in fact many ranchers have improved their stock here. Most cows here are dual purpose, milk and meat. Several of the farmers I know here in Jarabacoa raise holsteins, Swiss browns....etc.

They import beef from the US not the other way around, it doesn't matter what kind of cattle you have, if you don't put them in a feed pen to fatten them up the meat won't be thaqt good. As a side note they do use antibiotics here.
