Cooking Tips

Since Belgian Blue Beef is so lean, you're not cooking fat. It cooks more quickly and you can use a lower temperature. We recommend cooking your desired cut to a doneness of rare to medium for optimum quality.

Roasting
Set oven temperature to 250-275 degrees and use a meat thermometer to check for doneness at 120-140 degrees. At this point lower temperature, your roast should take the same amount of time as ordinary beef that is cooked at a higher temperature.

Pan Frying / Pan Broiling
High heat only for searing! Then turn the heat down. Remember Belgian Blue Beef cooks faster than ordinary beef; don't overcook. Watch your cooking time.

Broiling
Move your rack farther away from the heat source. Broil as ordinary beef, but shorten the cooking time. Turn the steak a few minutes sooner and check for doneness.

Grilling
Cook over medium coals at normal rack height, but shorten the cooking time. Turn the steaks a few minutes sooner ( 1/3 less time) and check for doneness.

Healthy eating,
The Jones Family
