BEEF - it's what's for dinner - and all natural too!

For this Special Edition of Rider On Recipes, where The Craig Bushon Show is hitting the road via an UStream exclusive, it's all about BEEF!   Kevin Finch from F5 Ranch has provided us with a few cuts of his all natural, no hormones, steroids, additives or preservatives BEEF.   His is fed a custom mix of grain and grass - order a 1/4 or 1/2, which can be custom cut to your liking.   It's then shrink wrapped and delivered to your door.   If you are concerned with where your beef is coming from and what's IN the beef - this is the perfect way to be informed and feel good about what you are serving to your family.   Contact Kevin at 512-914-2033.

F5 Ranch Beef T-Bone and Rib Eye

  • Your choice of F5 cuts of beef, room temperature
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
Directions:   Heat your grill, either charcoal or gas.   Put those babies on the grill and cook according to your liking.   If you question the touch test, then use a meat thermometer.   Use this guide...

Rare 125–135 °F (52–57 °C) Red center, gray surface, soft, juicy
Medium rare 135–145 °F (57–63 °C) Dark Pink throughout, gray-brown surface, very juicy
Medium 145–155 °F (63–68 °C) Pink center, becomes gray-brown towards surface
Medium well 155–165 °F (68–74 °C) Thin line of pink, firm texture
Well done 165 °F (74 °C) Gray-brown throughout, tough texture, dry

Once done to your liking, let steaks rest for 10 minutes so they can reabsorb the juices.   Serve with your favorite sides!
