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.

Pennsylvania Farm Looks for Maximum Conservation over Maximum Production 

Huntingdon Farm in Alexandria, Pennsylvania is owned by John and Kathryn Dawes. Everything the farm does, from cattle genetics to land and water conservation, has sustainability as the overarching goal. Being involved with the Foundation For Pennsylvania Watersheds, John has extensive knowledge in conservation and land management best practices, which he has implemented on the farm. These best practices include controlling water runoff by restoring wetlands and riparian habitat, revitalizing the banks of the creek that runs through the farm and improving crossing areas to help protect and improve the water quality. The Dawes have also placed their forest lands in a permanent conservation reserve that protects shag bark hickory trees which is a prime habitat for the endangered Indiana Bat. Huntingdon Farm has also set up educational signage to help visitors learn about their programs and educate the public on how these programs protect natural resources. For their conservation efforts, Huntingdon Farms was awarded the prestigious Environmental Stewardship Award (ESAP).

"I've always had a desire to live lightly on the earth and not be a resource consumer. Everything that we do, our desire is for sustainability." - John Dawes, Owner, Huntingdon Farm
