Meat Cooking Temperatures Chart

by GourmetFoodStore.com

More often than not, meat is the centerpiece of your meal, and you want to make sure it's cooked to juicy, succulent perfection. With that in mind, we've created a meat cooking chart showing the optimum cooking times and temperatures of different meats.

We've based our estimations on the consensus of multiple chefs and professionals, so these should be a good ballpark figure to aim for. Nevertheless, they are only approximate guidelines. Meat cooking times are affected by many variables, such as cooking method, altitude, distribution of heat, and exterior temperature, so use your own judgment or follow manufacturer guidelines in conjunction with the charts below.

Unless otherwise indicated, the provided temperatures refer to optimum internal temperature, which you can measure using a meat thermometer. Please note that many meats will continue to cook once removed from heat, with internal temperatures usually rising by around 5 - 10 degrees Fahrenheit, so factor this into your calculations.

Beef, Venison, Lamb

Steak cooking times refer to total grilling time (not per side).
