Using a Meat Thermometer in Steaks and Chops

Steaks, chops, and burgers are tasty and can be prepared in a hurry -- perfect for today's busy cooks.

Make sure your chops are cooked to perfection by using a meat thermometer.

Even experienced cooks may wonder just how long to cook these meats. The best way to tell when a steak, chop, or burger is done is to check the internal temperature with an instant-read thermometer. Instant-read thermometers measure a wide range of temperatures, typically from 0 degrees F to 220 degrees F, but they are not designed to stay in food during cooking.

Instructions:

1. To test for doneness, remove the meat from the heat (grill, stovetop, or oven).

2. Insert the thermometer into the thickest portion of the meat, not touching bone or the pan.

3. For thin meats, it's best to insert the thermometer horizontally (from the side) to make certain the end of the thermometer is securely in the thickest part of the meat.
