Perfecting Steak Doneness

Rare. Medium. Well Done.

While there is always a debate on the perfect way to cook a steak, the quality of meat is never up for consideration. 111 Beef Republic consistently offers premier cuts, no matter what temperature you like it.

Here are a few tips on how to perfect the doneness of your liking! 


Method 1: Use an instant-read thermometer and place it through the side of the thickest part of the steak without hitting bones or fat pockets. 

 Medium Rare: 145

Medium: 160

Well done: 170

We suggest pulling steaks off the heat when they are 5-10 degrees before your ideal temperature. Allow the meat to rest for 10 minutes prior to serving. 

If you're averse to poking holes in your beef and losing juices with the thermometer, there's also the finger test method. We'll get into that detail in another post!
