Cooking Tips

Beef Burgers

The USDA recommends cooking ground beef to an internal temperature of 160F. Below are some tips on ways to keep your burgers juicy and delicious:

  • Indent the center of your burger with a thumbprint. Beef burgers plump when you cook them and many people flatten them with a spatula, squeezing the juices out of the burger.
  • Cook the burger until a crust forms on the bottom, then flip the burger to cook the opposite side. Premature flipping can cause the burger to crumble and lets all the juices seep out!
  • Use meat thermometer to ensure burger is cooked all the way through to the proper temperature.
  • Cooking times vary due to the cooking equipment used.

Shaved Steak

The USDA recommends cooking steak to an internal temperature of 145F. These tips can help cook your shaved steak to perfection!

  • It’s best to separate the steak as much as possible to be able to cook each piece thoroughly.
  • Make sure the steak is browned all the way through.
  • Add your favorite ingredient and cook together with the steak. This will help season and impart flavor into the steak.
  • Cooking times vary due to the cooking equipment used.
