TEXAS LONGHORN BEEF INFORMATION
Thanks to Texas Longhorn beef, today's health-conscious consumer doesn't have to avoid tender juicy steaks. Not only is the Longhorn beef leaner than that of other breeds, it is also lower in saturated fats and has less cholesterol and calories than skinless, white meat chicken breast.
Beef is the number one source of protein, zinc and Vitamin B12, and the third best source of iron in the food supply. You'd have to eat almost 12 cans of tuna to get the equivalent amount of zinc in one 3 oz. serving of beef. It takes seven chicken breasts to equal the Vitamin B12 in one 3 oz. serving of beef. Beef is also a good source of selenium, providing 20 - 30% of the recommended daily allowance for men and women. Recent research has found that selenium may reduce the risk of heart disease and certain types of cancer, as well as enhance the body's ability to fight infections.

1. Texas Longhorn Beef cooks quickly due to its low fat content. Fat acts as an insulator so the heat must penetrate the fat before it begins to cook the meat. Therefore, the less fat, the quicker the cooking time. Be careful not to overcook it.
2.There is not much shrinkage in Longhorn beef. The cooked size is close to the same size you started with.
3. It is never necessary to cook Longhorn beef in additional fat. It contains just enough natural fat to allow it to cook to perfection.
4. To broil, position the meat 3-4 inches from the heat. Watch it closely while cooking to achieve desired doneness. Broiling slightly frozen steaks keep them juicier
5. A medium-hot fire works the best in grilling. Add damp mesquite or cherry wood chips to the fire for an extra flavor.
6. Longhorn beef roasts should be cooked at 275 degrees F.
7. A meat thermometer is recommended to monitor desired doneness. Ground beef should have an internal temperature of 160 degrees F.
