We have no doubt that everyone here loves steak, in fact that’s probably why you subscribed in the first place. But do you know how to grill the perfect steak? No? We’ve got your back, just keep on reading. If you do, this article might not be for you, but you still might be able to learn a little something. ;) 

Here is a step by step guide to give you the perfect steak every time you grill:

  1. Make sure that your steaks are at room temperature for at least twenty minutes before grilling. This will ensure that the steak grills evenly.
  2. Get the grill hot before you put the steaks on! Before you start the grill, make sure that you season your steaks with salt and pepper, giving the grill at least fifteen minutes to heat up before grilling.
  3. We know that it’s always tempting to check on your steaks progress as they grill but do not flip the steaks multiple times. Make sure you only flip the steak once, allowing both sides to cook for the same amount of time. This will ensure that the steak cooks evenly. 
  4. When you flip the steaks, always flip the meat to different hot spots on the grill
  5. After they are done on the grill, let the steaks rest under a tent of foil for 5 to 10 minutes. This gives the juices some time to balance out. 

Once you do all of this, we promise you will never cook a steak a different way. Enjoy!
