Cooking times and temperatures may vary with method of preparation, size and shape of the Wellborn 2R Beef brand cut, and your desired degree of doneness. Test for doneness using a meat thermometer or instant-read thermometer.
Insert thermometer through side of cut, tip in the center, not touching bone or fat.
Remove from heat when thermometer registers 5-10°F lower than desired doneness.
Rest your roast. Temperature will continue to rise while resting.

The USDA recommends steaks and roasts be cooked to 145°F (medium) and then rested for at least 3 minutes. To ensure food safety, ground beef should be cooked to a minimum 160°F (well done). Be sure to check with a thermometer, as color alone is not a foolproof indicator.
