TEMPERATURE CHART FOR BEEF

When cooking beef, you should let it warm up to room temperature for an hour or two. Various cuts of meat take different amounts of time to cook so we suggest you invest in a meat thermometer to test the temperature while the meat is cooking. Below are the suggested temperatures for cooking beef to your desired doneness:

RARE: 120°F to 125°F, (49°C to 52°C)

MEDIUM RARE: 130°F to 140°F (55°C to 60°C)

MEDIUM: 145°F to 150°F (63°C to 66°C)

WELL DONE: 155°F to 165°F (68°C to 74°C)

For the best results, let your steaks rest for 5 minutes after your remove them from the grill or other heat source. The steak will continue to cook during this rest period and it allows the moisture within the steak to move back toward the center of the cut for increased tenderness.

Without a meat thermometer, you’re taking a bit of a gamble. The size and shape of the meat, the amount of fat and bone, how the meat was aged and other factors also affect how long beef should cook.
