Since Angus beef is known for its tenderness, it’s best to use a cooking technique that will highlight its texture. Don't be afraid to grill or fry it.
Basic cooking advice
- Let meat sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes before cooking.
- Preheat the skillet or barbecue to high before cooking so the meat browns nicely.
- When cooking beef in a skillet, add fat so it browns well.
- Add salt right before cooking to avoid drying out the meat.
- Remove meat from the heat a little before reaching desired doneness because it will continue cooking for a while at room temperature.
- Loosely wrap meat in aluminum foil and let it rest for ten minutes before cutting. This allows cooking juices to spread evenly through the meat, ensuring juicy, tender meat.
