Cooking Temperature Chart

Here I’ve posted a general finished temperature chart for easy reference. The USDA recommends 145F for steaks and 160F for ground meat, but do not let that stand in your way of maximizing your flavors. I prefer my steaks between 110 and 120F personally, and I’ve never once had a problem.
