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.

New York farm protects drinking water for New York City residents

A hundred miles north of New York City in Grahamsville, New York sits Thunder View Farms, a 1,500 acre farm owned by the Coombe Family. To help protect the watershed that supplies nine million New York City residents with drinking water, the Coombe family implemented various water protecting and conservation techniques. These include installing a gravity flow system to deliver clean water to their pastures. To supplement their electrical needs, the Coombe family built a wind turbine and installed solar panels. These systems provide enough electricity to operate the farm shop and their freezer beef business. For their dedication to protecting natural resources, Thunder View Farms was awarded the prestigious Environmental Stewardship Award (ESAP).

"I'm really proud of what we've done to protect our farm. It's amazing because our blood, sweat and tears are in all this, and to know it's preserved is just heartwarming." - Ric Coombe, Thunder View Farms
