Beef Cooking Guides
At Crowd Cow, we've had the good fortune to taste a lot of grass-fed, grass-finished beef -- from different cuts and different producers. We've found that grass fed beef usually takes 25-30% less time to cook. You might be used to cooking your rib steaks 4 minutes per side, but for grass-fed beef, you'll want to only give it 3 minutes. Better yet, try sous-viding your grass-fed steaks or preparing them with a reverse-sear.
|Beef Cut||Stove Temp||Avg Time||Finish Temp|
|New York Strip||Medium Heat (sear)||12 mins||135-145 °F|
|Ribeye Steak||Medium Heat (sear)||12 mins||135-145 °F|
|Filet Mignon||Medium Heat (sear)||12 mins||135-145 °F|
|Ground Beef||Medium Heat (sear)||12 mins||165 °F|
Note: The above guidelines are only guard rails. Stove tops, grills, and ovens all vary. Cook times should also take into account thickness of meat. To achieve a perfectly steak or roast, always check temperature intermittently; a meat thermometer comes in handy.
