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

With a focus on family, Nevada ranch puts love and passion into everything they do

Located in northeastern Nevada is Maggie Creek Ranch, a ranch with a focus on sustainable practices and family. Everyone working on the ranch is raising their family there, with the intention of teaching their children about preserving the land and the wildlife. Since one third of the ranch's 200,000 acres are public lands, Jon Griggs, ranch manager, has spent years building trust and partnerships, demonstrating his dedication to treating all land with the upmost respect. Due to the ranch's location, drought and wildfires are a constant threat; however, rather than succumb to the threat, Jon and his team have been fully trained as firefighters and are part of the local volunteer fire department. With the truck they have on the ranch, the team is able to respond to initial fire outbreaks and thus protect the land to a much higher degree. Improving the watershed is another priority of Maggie Creek Ranch. They have fenced out cattle from riparian areas, improved the natural habitats and installed fish passages to help protect local trout and other endangered species. For their work in protecting this land, Maggie Creek Ranch was awarded the prestigious Environmental Stewardship Award (ESAP).

"When you're talking about cattle, you're talking about a love of land. When you talk about my family you're talking about a love of land. It's a complete circle of family, land and cattle" - Bekah Klarr, Maggie Creek Ranch

For them, ranching is at the center of all family time. And when you consider that their family motto is "#cowsfirst", that comes as no surprise. Just like other ranching families in Nevada and the west, the Pommerenings use age-old tradition with modern practices to provide the best care for their livestock, and produce the most high-quality beef for you.
