How do you prepare a perfectly grilled steak? I’ve been exploring different techniques to cook steak after trying to cut thorough too many expensive and tough steak dinners. I have found that a meat thermometer is a must-have item to guarantee success. The other part of the equation is preparing a very hot grill to sear in the juices and cook it quickly. Lastly, allow the steak to rest 5 minutes after cooking to keep it juicy. After a few successful tries, it has become a very easy meal to prepare.

Serves: 4 Cooking Time: 8-10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 (1¼ -to-1½ -inch-thick) steaks.
  • Recommended cuts: rib-eye, strip steak, tenderloin, Porterhouse, T-bone, skirt, top sirloin or flank steak.
  • 2 tablespoons canola or extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

Instructions

1

About 20 minutes before grilling, remove the steaks from the refrigerator and let sit, covered, at room temperature.

2

Heat your grill to high. Brush the steaks on both sides with oil and season liberally with salt and pepper.

3

Place the steaks on the hot grill and cook until golden brown and slightly charred, 4 to 5 minutes.

4

Turn the steaks over and continue to grill 3 to 5 minutes for medium-rare (an internal temperature of 135 degrees F), 5 to 7 minutes for medium (140 degrees F) or 8 to 10 minutes for medium-well (150 degrees F).

5

Transfer the steaks to a cutting board or platter, tent loosely with foil and let rest 5 minutes before slicing.

Notes

Baked method: Heat oven-proof sauté pan to high. Add oil and butter. Sear steaks for 1.5 minutes, both sides, and move to 500° oven for 8 minutes.
