Cooking Tips for Lean Longhorn Beef:

  • Longhorn beef naturally has a lower insulating fat content so it will cook faster than traditional beef.  
  • Less fat means there is less shrinkage when cooking longhorn beef.  
  • It is not necessary to add additional fat to cook longhorn beef, as it has just enough not to stick to a grill. 
  • To broil, position the meat three to four inches from the heat and watch closely to prevent overcooking.  
  • Broiling slightly frozen steaks will keep them juicer.  
  • For grilling, a medium-hot fire works best.  
  • Add damp mesquite or cherry wood chips to the fire for a nice flavor.
  • Cook longhorn roasts at 275°F.  
  • Use a meat thermometer to monitor desired doneness.  
  • Ground beef should have an internal temperature of 160°F.
