Use a Meat Thermometer Avoid cutting into a steak to check doneness—it can dry out the meat and color isn't reliable. Instead, use a meat thermometer inserted into the center of the steak.
Season Your Grill Grates Apply olive oil to grill grates before adding meat to cook evenly and prevent sticking. Use tongs to rub an olive oil-soaked paper towel over the grates for amazing grill marks!
Let. It. Rest. Rest grilled meat before serving. It's worth the wait to keep those tasty juices from draining onto your plate. For most grill-friendly cuts, five minutes is enough.

LEAN MEAT RECOMMENDATIONS: Choose lean meat cuts when looking for healthier options. Look for terms like 'loin' or 'round,' and trim visible fat before cooking to reduce overall fat content. Lean meats are not only a nutritious choice but also cook well when grilled, baked, or broiled.

IDENTIFYING LABELS: Wondering what the labels and stickers mean on different packages of meat? Well, at Tops we have a large assortment of all natural, grass fed, antibiotic free, and plant-based options for your family. Click below to learn a little bit about each of these categories.

ALL NATURAL: "All Natural" refers to meat that has undergone minimal processing and contains no artificial ingredients or added colors. This label typically indicates that the meat is free from synthetic additives, preservatives, and artificial flavors.
GRASS FED: "Grass-Fed" indicates that the animals were primarily fed a diet of grass or forage throughout their lives. This label is often associated with cattle, and grass-fed meat is known for being leaner and having a different nutritional profile compared to conventionally raised meat.
ANTIBIOTIC-FREE: "Antibiotic-Free" means that the animals raised for meat were not administered antibiotics during their lifetime. This label is important for those concerned about the overuse of antibiotics in livestock farming, which can contribute to antibiotic resistance.
PLANT-BASED: "Plant-Based Meat" refers to products that mimic the taste, texture, and appearance of traditional meat but are made entirely from plant-derived ingredients. Plant-based meats can include ingredients such as soy, pea protein, wheat gluten, and various plant extracts to create a meat-like experience without using animal-derived components.
