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

Oregon ranch strives to be stewards of the land to achieve their sustainable mission

Roaring Springs Ranch in Frenchglen, Oregon, is owned by the Sanders family with help from Ranch Manager, Stacy Davies. The main goal for the ranch is to be economically, ecologically and socially sustainable. The ranch is able to provide their cattle with high-quality food for year-round grazing by matching the animal production cycle with native plant nutrition creating a sustainable system for both the plants and animals. With such a diverse ecosystem on the ranch, Roaring Springs creates partnerships and cooperative agreements with local, state and federal organizations to focus on stopping invasive species, improving wildlife habitat and educating future generations on proper management techniques. In cooperation with the Bureau of Land Management, the ranch instituted a prescribed burn program to not only restore watershed health but grass and forage health for cattle and wildlife. For their work in implementing these sustainability practices, Roaring Springs Ranch was awarded the prestigious Environmental Stewardship Award (ESAP).

"My vision would be that we could better bridge the gap to our urban friends that what we do is good for the environment and what we do benefits them. Having good stewards on the land is better than not having anyone on the land and our goal is to be good stewards." - Rob Sanders, Owner, Roaring Springs Ranch
