Grilling A Perfect SteakFrom thegoldminer 9 years ago
How to make it
- I have cooked enough steaks on the grill using this method to feed an army. Note: I cook with the grill lid closed.
- Set the steak out to reach room temperature or at least 30 or more minutes before cooking. Let steaks, roasts, any meat set out and reach room temp so the meat will relax and you get a more tender finished product. Meat is a muscle and the cold of the refrigerator makes it tighten up. Cook it cold and it will be tougher.
- I cut the bone from any steak, this lets the steak cook evenly and produces a perfect steak each time.
- I season the bone the same as the meat and I get a great tasting bone to gnaw on.
- If you don't cut the bone off, the meat near the bone cooks at a different rate. The bone prevents the heat from penetrating so the cooking is uneven. I do this with pork chops, cut off the bone, it works.
- Apply olive oil to both sides.
- Apply pepper.
- I am very liberal with the granulated onion, light on the garlic and Lawrys.
- I cook most of my meats on my grill over an open flame. I let the grill preheat on high about 1 minute, then brush the grill. I don't wipe the grill will oil or anything.
- After brushing I lay the steak(s) on the grill, close the lid. Begin timing. After 3 minutes turn the steak. After 2.5 minutes remove meat from grill. The steak will be medium rare and look just perfect like the pics.
- Grilling time will change on thickness of steak and your grills characteristics. I keep forgetting to turn off the digital watch, I go through a lot of watch batteries!
- If I am cooking a 1 to 1-1/4 inch steak, it will run about 4 to 4 1/2 minutes per side. If the flame is licking up a lot from the grease dripping, flip at every 2 minutes.
- I have cooked hundreds of steaks using timing.
- Once you figure out your grill and time per side, they will always turn out perfect. Great color, great flavor from grease dripping and coming back as smoke in the flame.
- Once the steak is done, I like to cut it up and sprinkle a little regulsar salt on each bite. Just a little and the favor is really enhanced.
