Smart, Simple Defrosting
You can defrost your NatureSource® Natural Beef in the refrigerator or in a microwave. Do not defrost at room temperature because bacterial growth may occur.
Tips for Perfect Preparation
Grilled, broiled, or roasted NatureSource Natural Beef delivers natural, tender flavor. Simply follow our helpful tips to help create the perfect dish every time.
— Heat oven to temperature specified in chart.
— Place beef, fat side up, on rack in shallow roasting pan. Season, if desired. Insert oven-proof meat thermometer so tip is centered in thickest part of the roast, not resting in fat or touching bone. Do not add water. Do not cover.
— Roast 5° to 10°F below desired degree of doneness. Allow roast to stand 15-20 minutes before serving. Temperature will continue to rise 5° to 10°F to reach desired doneness. In addition, the roast will be easier to carve.
— Prepare charcoal for grilling. When coals have become ash-covered (approximately 30 minutes), spread in single layer and check cooking temperature. (To check temperature, cautiously hold the palm of your hand above the coals at cooking height. Count the number of seconds you can hold your hand in that position before the heat forces you to pull it away: approximately 4 seconds for medium heat).
— Use seasonings as desired. Place on cooking grid directly over coals.
— Grill according to chart, turning occasionally. (Because gas grill brands vary greatly, consult your owner’s manual).
— After cooking, season beef with salt, if desired.
