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

Utah ranch makes environmental stewardship a part of their every day life

Della Ranches in Grouse Creek, Utah is owned by the Tanner Family who takes great pride in their land and environmental stewardship practices. The family works with many local, state and federal agencies to manage their natural resources and improve the quality of the range. Invasive species are a big threat to the natural landscape and resources. With help from these local agency partners, Della Ranches conducts prescribed burns on up-rooted invasive trees. The family has also worked with Utah State University to monitor Sage-Grouse and improve the local wildlife habitat by monitoring the age and height of plants in the area, as different animals, both cattle and wildlife, have different needs. For their stewardship efforts, Della Ranches was awarded the prestigious Environmental Stewardship Award (ESAP).

"It is a great sense of heritage and something that I hope we can instill upon the next generation, the importance of the family and the efforts that our family has made to make our ranch a fifth or sixth generation ranch." - Blaine Tanner, Owner, Della Ranches
