General Guidelines

  • Cook with a calibrated food thermometer to accurately measure the internal temperature of meats.
  • Cooking safely to medium doneness requires the meat to reach an internal temperature of 145°F and hold for at least 3 minutes.
  • Internal Temperature for other levels of doneness: Rare: 120-125°F; Medium Rare: 130-135°F; Medium Well: 150-155°F; Well Done: 160°F
  • Appliances will vary; adjust cooking times as necessary.

Note: Cooking instructions are meant as guidelines only. Cook to recommended internal temperature guidelines and adjust cooking times if necessary for size and weight of products as appliances will vary. You may not achieve desired results due to these variables, therefore, while care has been taken to provide accurate cooking guidelines users are advised to use their discretion.
