Cooking Frozen Beef

Beef may be cooked frozen or defrosted. Defrosted beef should be cooked as a fresh cut; but allow additional cooking time. Frozen roasts require 1/3 to 1/2 more time for cooking. Cooking time for frozen steaks and patties varies according to surface area, thickness, and broiling temperature. Frozen cuts should be broiled farther from the heat so they do not brown too quickly. To braise frozen pot roasts, allow approximately the same cooking time as for defrosted cuts.

Defrosting Beef

Frozen beef my be defrosted before or during cooking. It should be defrosted in the original wrapping in the refrigerator. Defrosting meat at room temperature is not a recommended procedure. The following is a timetable for defrosting frozen beef in a refrigerator:

Large roast 4-7 hours (per pound)
Small roast 3-5 hours (per pound)
Steak, one-inch thick 12-14 hours



Steak Lovers Cookbook

Rump. Loin. Skirt. Hoof. Chuck. Flank. Butt. Sometimes it's hard to tell whether food journalist Rice gets greater pleasure from writing these meaty monosyllables or from eating the cuts of beef they name.  The book is divided into sections devoted to the various cuts of beef, beginning with the tenderloin (and the filets into which it is often cut) and closing with the cheaper cuts like chuck.

Tips for Cooking Any Steak

  • To test for doneness, press the meat with your finger. Rare meat will be soft and wobbly, medium will have a springy firmness and well done will feel very firm and unyielding.

  •  A steak will cook a little after you remove it from the grill or oven, so stop broiling when the steak tests slightly less done than desired.

  • For great results every time, use an instant read kitchen thermometer. Insert the thermometer in the thickest part of your steak, hamburger or chops away from any bone or marbling. Thermometer readings should be: 120F to 125F for rare; 130F to 135F. for medium rare and 140F to 145F for medium.

  •  Although steaks are optimum in flavor and texture when cooked to no more than medium doneness, some people prefer their steaks well done. The internal temperature for medium well steak is 155F and well done 160F.

  • Keep in mind that overcooking causes greater shrinkage and decreased tenderness.

  • Turn your steak when the meat juices start to bubble up through the meat to the top of the steak.

Here's a guide to help you cook your dishes to perfection. It's important to make sure your food is the proper temperature inside and out.

Use the following temperature guide to see if your food is thoroughly cooked.
