Guide to Cooking Beef

Guide to Cooking Beef

From grilling tips to cooking a succulent roast, these essential techniques will ensure you get the most of your beef cuts every time.


Tips for grilling beef

  • Always cook meats as far away from the heat source as possible.
  • To create grill markings, rotate the meat one quarter turn clockwise midway through cooking each side.
  • Before serving, always check the degree of doneness with a meat thermometer, particularly hamburger and tenderized meats.
  • Once the meat is cooked, it should be wrapped loosely in foil and left standing for 5 minutes or so. This allows the fibres to relax and the juices to circulate through the flesh for maximum taste and tenderness.

Internal temperature of cooked beef

  • 130° F (56° C) – Rare
  • 145° F (63° C) – Medium rare
  • 160° F (71° C) – Medium
  • 170° F (77° C) – Well done


Meat on bbq

Flank steaks

Oven cooking: Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). In a skillet, sear steak in butter and oil. Transfer to the oven for 15 min.

BBQ cooking: Brush cold grill with vegetable oil. Preheat to high for 5 minutes, then lower to medium-high to cook. Sear 5 minutes per side. After cooking, tent the meat with foil and let rest 5-7 min.

Accompaniments: Delicious with baked potatoes, green beans, roasted root vegetables or with a Chinese cabbage and carrot salad.

Expert Tip

Flank steak should be cooked medium-rare, since it's not as juicy if overcooked. Lightly score both sides of the steak with a sharp knife. Slice flank steak against the grain.


Roast beef

Oven cooking: Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C). Place meat, fat side up, on a trivet in a shallow roasting pan (do not add water). Sear uncovered for 10 min. Lower the temperature to 275°F (140°C) and roast until internal temperature reaches 135°F (57°C).

BBQ cooking: Brush cold grill with vegetable oil. Preheat to high for 5 minutes. Cook over indirect heat. Put a pan of water under the grill over a closed burner. Place roast over closed burner and close the lid.

Accompaniment: Serve with curried couscous or grilled mushroom skewers.

Expert Tip

Use a meat thermometer. Internal temperature should read 135°F (57°C). After cooking, tent the meat with foil and let rest 15 min.
