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 Massachusetts farmer: Samantha staebner

Just one hour west of Boston, Samantha Staebner’s family is focused on sustainably keeping agriculture alive and well at Whittier Farms. Farming 500 acres, Whittier Farms has diversified over five generations to a beef, dairy, and vegetable farm with a year-round farm store. In addition to sales of individual beef cuts, the farm store specializes in farm-to-table homemade meals, such as meatballs and beef stew, featuring their beef, seasonal vegetables and Cabot Dairy products. Despite the dairy roots of the Whittier Farms family, raising high-quality beef has become an integral part of keeping agriculture alive and well for generations to come in Massachusetts.
