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

Kansas family farm uses "pasture to plate" model to bring sustainable beef to their community

Located in Junction City, Kansas, Munson Angus Farms has had a presence in the community for nearly 150 years. With such deep roots in the area, stewardship of the local environment is top priority for the Munsons, whose six generations live and work on the family farm. Munson Angus Farms embraces a "pasture to plate" business model, where they both raise and finish their cattle with an intensive focus on quality over quantity. In fact, their family's number one philosophy is "doing it the right way." In order to improve their land and protect their cattle, the Munsons have worked with a variety of state and local agencies. They have implemented rotational grazing, as well as a no-till system to improve soil health and prevent erosion. They have even united neighboring landowners to come together to preserve their local river. For their efforts in sustainability, The Munson family was awarded the prestigious Environmental Stewardship Award (ESAP).

"The Munson family has always placed extremely high emphasis on the environmental stewardship issues, not just from wanting to treat the world right, but that's what it takes to be successful doing the type of business that we attempt to do." - Deanna Munson, Owner, Munson Angus Farms
