Veal Creativity on Tik Tok

July 1, 2021 Washington, DC – Tik Tok has become a place that inspires creativity and brings joy to its users. Most recently for Tik Tok sensations Marco (Wood Fire and Whiskey) and Matt (Groark Boys BBQ) this creativity has been in the form of new recipes featuring a nearly forgotten protein: Veal.

Matt and Marco sat down with Beef Checkoff funded Veal- Discover Delicious this past winter to learn more about. What they also discovered through their veal culinary adventure was how veal is safely and humanely raised. With so many misconceptions about veal it was important that Marco and Matt not only cooked with veal but also learned about the industry.

In their Tik Tok videos, Matt and Marco educated their followers by explaining that Veal is a light pink protein which is mild in flavor and is sourced from six-month-old cows which weigh about 500 pounds. Many believe Veal is a baby cow; what Matt and Marco learned is that they are big animals. They continued to discover that veal calves are healthy, have room to stand up lie down and live-in group pens where they can interact with each other. Cattle are naturally herd animals and like to be in close proximity to other cattle for comfort and protection from prey.
