Cooking Information

Cooking Time

  • Because it is lower in fat, grass-fed beef requires 30 percent less cooking time than conventional grain-fed beef. This is particularly important when pan-frying or grilling steaks.
  • Grass-fed steaks are best eaten medium-rare to medium. As with any meat, a well-done steak will probably be tough.
  • For a medium-rare to medium steak, cook for 6-8 minutes per side.
  • If you’re using a meat thermometer, a rare steak will register 135°F, medium-rare to medium will register between 145°F and 155°F.

Cooking Method

  • Panorama’s English genetics guarantee a tender steak, so there’s no need to use the marinade or tenderizers that are often recommended for grass-fed beef.
  • Bring steaks to room temperature before grilling or pan-frying.
  • Our favorite cooking method for steaks is to rub them with a little olive oil, then sprinkle with sea salt and pepper and grill over a very hot charcoal or gas grill.
  • Don’t turn your steaks with a fork, as you will lose precious juices. Use tongs or a spatula.

Thaw Completely Before Cooking

  • It’s best not to cook Panorama meat that is still frozen or partly frozen.
  • Thaw the meat in the refrigerator. Don’t defrost it in a microwave oven.

Let Rest after Cooking

  • All meats should be allowed to rest for 8 to 10 minutes after cooking. This allows the juices to settle.
