Beef Cooking Time Charts

For safety, the USDA recommends cooking hamburgers and ground beef mixtures such as meat loaf to 160 °F on a meat thermometer.  However, whole muscle meats such as steaks and roasts may be cooked to 145 °F (medium rare), 160 °F (medium), 170 °F (well done). For approximate cooking times for use in meal planning, see the following chart compiled from various resources.

Times are based on beef at refrigerator temperature (40 °F). Remember that appliances and outdoor grills can vary in heat. Use a meat thermometer to check for safe cooking and doneness of beef.

The BEST way to determine doneness of your beef is to use a high quality meat thermometer.  The following web page from the USDA tells everything you need to know about meat thermometers!

If you are interested in purchasing a high quality thermometer, we sell the exact same thermometer we use here at the Jackson Frozen Food Locker meat processing plant in our commercial smokehouse.  Just click here to learn more!

The ONLY way to know food has been cooked to a safe internal temperature is to use a meat thermometer!

Tips for Cooking Any Steak

 Turn your steak when the meat juices start to bubble up through the meat to the top of the 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: 120°F to 125°F for rare; 130°F to 135°F. for medium rare and 140°F to 145°F 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 155°F and well done 160°F. Keep in mind that overcooking causes greater shrinkage and decreased tenderness.
