If you love to barbecue, grilling a perfect steak is definitely on your to-do list. Of course, it starts with a good quality piece of meat, so go to a butcher you trust and ask for their best grilling steak. Once you bring your prize home, you can expect success by trying a few helpful techniques.
Start by bringing the meat up to room temperature. Take the meat out of the fridge and let it sit out for about 20 minutes before you slap it on the grill. Next, pat it dry, brush it with a bit of oil and season it generously with salt and pepper. Then cook it on a hot grill for about 7 minutes for medium-rare. Add a few more minutes for medium and a few more for medium-well. Let the meat rest after you take it off the heat, loosely tented with foil, for at least 5 minutes before slicing or serving it. Follow this advice and you’ll soon be savoring your most tantalizing and perfectly cooked steak ever.
