Texas Longhorn Beef

Did you know that red meat can be included as part of a  healthy diet? Thanks to Texas Longhorns, today’s health-conscious  consumer doesn’t have to avoid tender, juicy steaks. Longhorn beef is  leaner than other breeds and is lower in saturated fats. Packed full of  flavor, Longhorn beef has less cholesterol and calories than white meat.  Including lean beef in a heart-healthy diet can positively impact blood  cholesterol levels. Studies have shown that eating lean beef can help  increase ‘good’ cholesterol and reduce ‘bad’ cholesterol in people with  elevated cholesterol levels. Beef is the best source of protein, zinc and Vitamin B12 and is the  third best source of iron in the food supply. Beef is also a good source  of selenium, which may reduce the risk of heart disease and certain  types of cancer (such as prostate) as well as enhance the body’s ability  to fight infections. That’s definitely good news for carnivores who  crave a healthy lifestyle! 


“Lean beef is good for you – and  the key word is lean. A heart patient can eat steak every meal if it is  in the right proportions. Longhorn meat, on average, contains 10 percent  less saturated fat than that of other cattle. That puts lean Longhorn  beef on par with skinned boneless white meat of chicken and that fact  may come as a surprise to many dieticians.” -Dr. Joseph Graham, Cardiovascular Surgeon at St. John’s Medical Center in Joplin, Missouri, and a Longhorn breeder himself.


CULINARY BENEFITS 

Texas Longhorn beef cooks quickly due to  its low fat content. Fat acts as an insulator. Heat must penetrate the  fat before it begins to cook the meat. Lower fat means a faster cook  time.

-There is little shrinkage in Longhorn beef.

– Longhorn beef does not require additional fat for cooking. The natural fat is enough to cook your meat to perfection.

COOKING TIPS

-To broil, position the meat 3-4 inches from the heat. Watch it  closely while cooking to achieve desired doneness. Broiling slightly  frozen steaks keeps them juicier.

-A medium-hot fire works best in grilling. Add damp mesquite or  cherry wood chips to the fire for extra flavor. Remember, the meat cooks  quickly so watch it carefully.

– Longhorn beef roasts should be cooked at 275 degrees F.

-A meat thermometer is recommended to monitor desired temperature.  Ground beef should have an internal temperature of 160 degrees F.
