Tips On Cooking The Perfect Grilled Steak

Cooking a steak to perfection is much more demanding than you’d think! There are many different ways to cook a steak, each yielding different flavors that captivate your taste buds. However, in order to get the best results from your cooking experience, you’ll need to know the tricks of the trade! When it comes to grilling steak, this statement is no different. Getting the perfect grilled steak requires knowing the smaller details that help bring the flavors out. We’ll give you our expert tips for cooking the perfect grilled steak below!

Let The Steaks Sit Outside The Freezer First

If you transfer your cut of steak immediately from the refrigerator to the grill, you’ll find that it is much tougher to get an even cook! In order to prevent this problem, you should remove your steaks from the refrigerator about 20-30 minutes before you place them on the grill. Doing so will allow your cuts of meat to adjust to room temperature, making it much easier to achieve a tender cut on the grill.

Brush Oil On Both Sides Of The Cut

When pan-frying different types of meat, many chefs recommend adding some variation of olive oil or PAM to your pan before you start. This prevents the meat from sticking to the pan and allows for an easier and more thorough cook. Think of brushing oil on your steak cuts as the grilling equivalent of PAM. They’ll prevent your meat from sticking to the grill and allow for a much easier – and more satisfying – char once fully cooked!

Start With High Heat, Then Move To Low Heat

There’s a big difference between a dried-out cut of steak and one that is juicy and filled with flavor! Cooking at a high heat to start is always recommended, but you shouldn’t spend the entire cooking time on a maximum setting. Let it sit at this setting for a few minutes, then move to a lower heat for the rest of your cooking time. The steak will continue to cook properly but won’t overheat and cause the juices to evaporate.
