How to Grill the Perfect Steak.

Bring the Steakhouse to Your Backyard

The perfect steak starts with a good piece of meat. Some good choices are rib eye, porterhouse, New York strip, or filet mignon. Personally, my favorite is the rib eye because the price is right and it has just the right amount of fat. Always remember – fat equals flavor!

When you can, look for steaks with a Prime grade or Angus cut of meat. These types of steaks have the perfect amount of marbled fat rewarding you with rich taste, juiciness, and are great with the simplest of seasoning.

Prepping the steak for the grill is very simple. Some easy-to-follow guidelines are what's needed to ensure a very happy grilling experience. (Aahh, I can just smell the steak now . . .)

Prepping the Steak :

Fat (the fat on the steak I'm talking about, not necessarily on our hips, people) rewards you with great benefits to your palate but requires a little prep work before you grill.

1. If you find that your steak has a large amount of fat on the outside edge, just make a few cuts vertically through the fat at 2 inch intervals to prevent your steak from curling up and taking on the resemblance of a catcher's mitt from the 1930s.

2. Definitely brush your steaks down with a little olive oil before any seasoning is sprinkled on. This will ensure that your entire steak gets covered with oil resulting in great color. It also prevents the steaks from sticking to the grill grate.

3. Some people let steaks come to room temperature before grilling. Most professionals don’t bother, so, heck, why should we. Any meat left out to come to room temperature is an invitation for bacteria to grow.

4. Preheat your grill to high heat. Preheating the grill heats up the grates and helps prevent the food from sticking. High heat is required to sear the outside of the meat, thereby sealing in those fantastic juices.

5. You'll never hear a steak shout out and say, “Hey buddy! Stick a fork in me, I’m done!” I beg of you with my entire being, DON'T DO IT. You never ever want to violate a steak with a fork to turn it over on the grill. Piercing the steak will only release the juices resulting in a dried out piece of meat. Instead, what I suggest to use is a pair of tongs.

6. Brush the finished steaks that come off the grill with extra-virgin olive oil or butter for that little extra added richness.

When you take them off the grill let the steaks rest on a platter (or whatever you want to use) uncovered for about five minutes. You may be asking, “Why wait? Can't I start eating them right away? I'm starving!” You can, if you must.

But, did you know that when you cook meat the juices pull toward the center, huddling away from the heat source? So by letting the meat, after cooking, rest for about five minutes you will allow those wonderful tasty juices to redistribute themselves throughout the meat. This makes the entire steak full of flavor. A little patience before serving will result in juicier steaks all the way through and make for satisfied palate.


Rib Eye Steak
Olive Oil – Extra virgin
Kosher salt – About ½ teaspoon for each steak
Black pepper – About ½ teaspoon for each steak

How To Make It:

1. Preheat the grill for high heat.

2. Brush both sides of the steaks down with olive oil and then season them with salt and pepper.

3. Grill on a covered grill to the desired degree of doneness. For your aid, I've prepared a chart below that you can use for grill times.

(If you like those fancy crosshatch {+ or X} marks on the steak, simply rotate the steak 90 degrees after two minutes then continue for the remaining grilling times per side. Repeat this technique on the other side to get the same effect.)

4. Remove steaks from the grill and let rest for about five minutes before serving.

Enjoy the praise. You deserve it. Now that you have successfully brought the steakhouse to your backyard, you just may never order a steak out again.

Steak Cooking Times

3/4 inch thick:
medium rare – two minutes per side
medium – three minutes per side
medium well – four minutes per side

1 inch thick:
medium rare – three minutes per side
medium – five minutes per side
medium well – six minutes per side

1 1/2 inch thick:
medium rare – six minutes per side
medium – seven minutes per side
medium well – eight minutes per side

Personal note: Steaks cooked “well done” are not my idea of the perfect steak. But if you consider this to be your perfection then just add another minute to the “medium well” times per side. Logo
