Expert Grilling Advice from Beef. It's What's For dInner.

  • Consider your cut: While classics, such as Strip Steak and Ribeye, can be an easy go-to, there are endless options when it comes to cuts of beef. Why not try taking your grilling game up a notch with a cut you might not be as familiar with, like a juicy Flat Iron or a lean, flavorful Flank Steak. More cut ideas for grilling can be found here.
  • Elevate those flavors: Marinades and rubs are a great way to take beef to the next level with minimal effort. To add extra flavor, tender cuts can be marinated for as little as 15 minutes or as long as two hours. For less tender cuts, marinating for at least six hours, but not more than 24 hours, will do the trick.
  • Medium and steady wins the race: When it comes to cooking beef, there is no need to rush the process by using any higher heat than medium. Cooking at a medium heat allows beef to achieve caramelization while still developing rich flavors and avoiding charring.
  • Temperature is king To have the best eating experience, it is important to cook beef to the correct internal temperature. The best way to ensure accurate results is to use a meat thermometer.
  • Let it Rest: Always let beef rest for about 5 minutes after it comes off the grill to lock in all those tasty juices.
  • Time to savor: Once you’ve finished grilling that delicious beef meal, it’s time to sit back and enjoy.

MEET THE PEOPLE BEHIND THE BEEF

Georgia family turns their farm into a classroom to educate others on stewardship

Greenview Farms of Screven, Georgia has been in the Harris family for 150 years, and they have land conservation plans dating back just as far. Conservation is a part of who they are, and at Greenview Farms, they are always working to improve the work of previous generations. The Harrises run a diversified farm where their crops, pasture, and timber are all centered around the cattle. In an effort to promote stewardship, the Harrises recognize the need to protect water quality on and off the farm. The family has installed fencing to keep cattle out of natural waterways, and has worked with the National Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) to install a winter feeding pad to reduce erosion and runoff into the creek. The family also shares their techniques with other cattle producers and government entities, as the most important thing to them is sharing what they do with others. For their ongoing commitment to sustainability, Greenview Farms was awarded the prestigious Environmental Stewardship Award (ESAP).

"I have people come to me all the time saying, 'Johnny, why are you doing that? You're not going to realize any of the results out of that.'  And I say, 'Because it's the right thing to do, and because somebody is going to reap the benefit of it." - Jonny Harris, Owner, Greenview Farms
