During May, the focus is on beef and the farmers who produce it. Beef is known for its protein and also supplies ten essential nutrients required by our bodies each and every day. Minnesota Beef Council Executive Director Karin Schaefer says many consumers are interested in learning more about how to cook beef. “Sometimes they don’t know what to do with beef. So, it’s important to connect consumers with the information they need to prepare beef in the right way,” May is also the perfect time of year for Beef Month as consumers fire up their grills. “Make sure your cooking beef to 160 degrees Fahrenheit,” says Minnesota Beef Council Communications Director Becky Church offers some safe grilling tips. “Using a meat thermometer is also the safest route, rather than eyeballing or even cutting the meat open.” Hear more from Church in this interview.
