I rarely mess up a steak on the grill. That's because I have been using this little chart for over 5 years. I've been holding back, I know, but I just thought that if I knew then the whole world knew. I don't give myself credit sometimes. So, here it is. If you want perfect steak & not just good steak, use it, you will not be sorry!!!!!
Yes, I actually do take a ruler to my meat & then go according to the chart. The chart can also be found here.
Some of my own tips for steak grilling:
- Take your steaks out of the fridge about 15 - 30 minutes prior to cooking.
- Be aware of the hot spots on your grill.
- All you need is salt, pepper, garlic powder & a little lime juice. Salting just prior does not dry out the steak or draw out moisture. The lime juice helps to break down the fibers giving you tenderness!
- Only flip steak once.
- Don't keep opening your grill. Maybe check once to make sure there are no flare ups.
Always - let your steak rest for 3-4 minutes before slicing into it. You will then see the true doneness since it continues to cook, as well as let the juices run back to the middle, giving you a very juicy, moist & delicious steak. I swear by this rule.
