How to Properly Cook Beef [Infographic]
If you're new to cooking, a former vegetarian, or just have general anxiety when it comes to cooking meat, it's important to learn how to go about the process properly and safely. Avoid making yourself or someone you're cooking for sick with help from this easy article. The secret to properly cooked beef is all in the temperature, so it's wise to invest in a good meat thermometer before you try cooking a steak or burger for the first time. This is a much better and more accurate way to determine when you should stop cooking or grilling your meat as opposed to relying on the "time per side" method. It's also worth mentioning that meat cooks relatively quickly depending on the thickness, so if you like your meat rare, you'll want to keep a close eye on things so you don't overcook. Conversely, if you're more of a well-done kind of person, you're looking at about 13-15 minutes total cooking time, leaving you a little room to do other things for the meal in the meantime.
