You can always go for a steak dinner at our house with your family.  Even though there are several different cuts of steaks, ribeye, filet mignon, T-Bone, and others, our favorite cut of meat to grill is ribeye.   Grilled steak is even better when cooked on the barbecue in the summertime.  We throw a steak on the grill after a long day at work or hanging out around the pool.  Although I prefer to buy organic grass-fed meat or Angus Beef and have it delivered to my home, you can use the meat of your choice.

Anytime my boyfriend cooks for me, he makes a steak.  His favorite thing is to take a saucepan out to the grill, melt some butter, brush it onto the steaks, and add salt and pepper.  I'd say it can't get any better!”  But, if you have never grilled a steak, you may wonder exactly how to grill steak and how to tell when your steak is ready to come off the grill.  We've got the answer for you.  Keep reading.  If you like chicken wings, try my air fryer chicken wings recipe; it is easy to clean up!  Many delicious side dishes pair well with grilled steak.  For example, creamy garlic mashed potatoes.

If you're a meat lover who wants to stay in the comfort of your home to get your hands on some high-quality cuts, you'll be glad to know that there are now several online meat delivery services to choose from. So, you can order the best meats from your couch and deliver them straight to your doorstep!

Grilling Steak

How do you grill steak like a Chef?

For those who like easy grilling recipes, it only gets as challenging as a grilled steak dinner. Follow the steps below, and you will prepare a perfectly cooked steak sooner than you think.

Buy The Steak For Grilling.

First, you'll need to order from your favorite online meat delivery or head to your nearest local butcher to select your meat. My pick is a ribeye steak or skirt steak. Depending on which type of steak you choose—whether it's ribeye, flank steak, skirt steak, T-bone, or tenderloin—will determine how long you should cook the meat. Of course, thicker steaks, like ribeyes or porterhouses, will take a bit longer to cook than their counterparts. Thinner/leaner steaks, such as skirt steak, benefit from a good marinade and a pretty quick cook time on the grill.

Preparing Steak For Grilling

The next step is prepping the meat! Before grilling, bring your steak to room temperature for at least 30 minutes—because a cold steak won't cook evenly. Then, pat down the steak with a paper towel until it is very dry—season generously with sea salt and fresh ground pepper on both sides. You can marinate your steak or add your favorite seasoning if you prefer. Lemon pepper seasoning is a must-have, but others will work too!

Grill Steak - Your How To.

Finally, the moment we have been working toward, fire up your grill and be sure you have gotten it nice and hot!  Whether using a charcoal grill or a gas grill doesn't matter; I use both.  Like cooking any other meats, you will need to make sure to preheat your grill before adding the steaks.  Also, this is a crucial step: sear the steaks in a stainless steel saucepan, rotating and often flipping to get a nice crust.

The Yummly Smart Meat Thermometer is a great kitchen gadget that comes with wireless Bluetooth connectivity. It allows you to monitor the internal temperature of your food remotely from your smartphone or tablet. This means you can keep an eye on your food's cooking progress without having to check it every few minutes. The thermometer has a range of up to 150 feet, so you can move around your home or yard while still keeping an eye on your food. The Yummly app also provides cooking instructions and tips for various types of meat, recipes, and meal-planning ideas. This is an excellent tool for anyone who loves to cook and wants to ensure their food is perfectly cooked.

Then, grab your meat thermometer—this will keep you from overcooking (or undercooking) your marvelous piece of meat.  Kidding aside, if you need one grill tool when cooking a thick piece of meat or cooking steak, it's a meat thermometer.  Learn how if you are uncomfortable cooking meats in a stainless steel pan.

How To Use a Meat Thermometer?

How to use a meat thermometer: First, insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the steak (avoid the bone or fat).  Be sure to follow the temperature guide we provided below.  How long should you grill the steak?  That will depend on your doneness preference.  Note, since the temperature of the meat will continue to rise once removed from the grill, you'll want to remove the steak from the fire when it reaches about 5˚ lower than the temperatures provided below.  It is better to undercook than to overcook your steak.  If you undercook it, you can always put your steak back on the grill.  On the other hand, if you overcook your steak, you can do nothing.

Finish Your Steak In The Oven

Could you finish a steak in the oven? Yes, absolutely – For thicker cuts of meat, you can bake it in your 450° oven for about 10 minutes. For thinner cuts of meat, you can expect about 6 minutes per side under the broiler. Be sure to flip it on the sheet pan halfway through. The 360 Cookware Grilling Set makes a perfect gift for the indoor or griller chef in your life, a perfect Father's Day or birthday gift for the home chef, plus it comes with a lifetime warranty.

Pro Tip: Your steak will continue to cook while resting, so air on the side of caution.

How To Grill Steak

Grilled Steak Temperatures

  • Rare: 125 to 130˚ (very red/pink)
  • Medium Rare: 130 to 135˚ (pink)
  • Medium: 135 to 145˚ (slightly pink)
  • Medium-Well: 145 to 150˚ (mostly brown)
  • Well-Done: 155˚ or higher (all brown)

Is It Important To Let The Steaks Rest?

Yes, the final step is crucial! Let your meat rest once after being taken off the grill. Letting your meat ensures the juices stay within the meat rather than running right out. If you wish, loosely cover the steak with foil and do not stack the steaks on top of each other, then let it sit for 5 minutes.

I love cooking with carbon steel on the grill. It's the perfect way to get that nice sear on steaks and burgers. Plus, it's so easy to clean and maintain. Just make sure to properly season the carbon steel before using it on the grill. Happy grilling!
