BBQ Pit Boys Tip: Resting Beef Face

Why rest beef after cooking?

You’ve cooked your beef and now it’s time to let the meat rest.

Resting allows the natural meat juices redistribute through the muscle, relaxing the meat fibers so you can savor delicious tender and juicy beef.

How to rest beef

  • Remove beef from heat
  • Place on a warm plate or serving platter 
  • Cover loosely with foil (too tight and you’ll make the hot meat sweat and lose valuable moisture)

How to rest beef

How long should beef rest?

Many chefs follow the rule of thumb of 1 minute resting time for every 100 g of meat.

Resting time depends on the size of your cut. We like to give a roast 10–20 minutes rest before carving and allow steaks to stand for 3–5 minutes before serving.

If you’ve ever cut a piece of beef that didn’t rest properly, you know that all of those beautiful juices spill out and all of that moisture and flavor is lost!

That’s when you get “The resting Beef face!”
