tips for perfect grilled steak

  • At least 15 minutes before you want to start cooking, prepare the grill. To avoid sticking while turning steaks, start with clean grill plates.
  • Prepare your grill or barbeque by heating it up. For an excellent sear and crisp edges, cook food at least to 450°F (230°C). By gently and carefully waving your palm 6 inches over the grill plates, you may locate the hot spots.
  • Use a folded paper towel soaked in oil to gently oil the grill plates while using tongs.
  • Pat steaks dry with paper towels to produce the best possible sear. Let steaks remain at room temperature for 15 minutes. Add salt, pepper, and any additional seasonings you choose, such as paprika, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, etc.
  • Use a set of tongs to flip the meat instead of a barbeque fork to prevent the meat’s vital fluids from being released. To give them enough time to develop that gorgeous crust, merely flip once while cooking. When they can be lifted from the grill without difficulty, they are prepared.
  • The BEST part of this dish is to slather it with garlic butter. You may grill your steaks while also brushing them with wonderful, melted garlic butter to add flavor. You’ll use half of it here and reserve the remainder for your shrimp.
  • Rest – Before slicing, let steaks rest for at least 5 minutes to allow the juices to settle before serving.
  • Grill your shrimp while the steaks are resting, dousing them with the leftover butter. Be prepared

how can you tell if grilled steak is done?

  • Rare steaks. Soft textured steaks that maintain an indent when pressed will be rare — 140°F (60°C) internal temperature
  • Medium-rare steaks. Steaks with a soft and springy feel will be medium rare — 145°F (63°) internal temperature
  • Medium steaks. Steaks with a springy feel will be medium (bounce back up fast) — 160°F (70°) internal temperature
  • Well done steaks. Firm steaks are well done — 170°F (76°) internal temperature

I recommend removing steaks off the grill when they are around 5° below desired doneness as they continue cooking while resting!
