Perfect Grilled Steak


For juicy meat and a great crust, choose a thicker cut such as rib eye. Because this type of steak takes longer to cook, it will have time to develop a nice sear.

  • Yield: Makes 2 to 3 servings

Source: Everyday Food, July/August 2009


  • 1 porterhouse, flank, or rib-eye steak (1 3/4 pounds and 1 1/2 inch thick)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper


  1. Heat grill to medium-high; clean and lightly oil hot grates. Generously season steak with salt and pepper.

  2. Grill steak 8 minutes, rotating 90 degrees halfway through. Flip steak and cook 8 minutes more for medium-rare (a thermometer inserted horizontally into center of meat should register 125 degrees), rotating again halfway through. Let rest 8 to 10 minutes before serving.

    So many recipes for meat dishes contain; "(a thermometer inserted horizontally into center of meat ---)". Don't!! A thermometer inserted horizontally into center of meat allows juices to run out. Learn to trust your eyes and feel for the tenderest and juiciest cooked meats.
