Techniques/Tips to Improve

Cut it

The first step is to cut the steak.

We would recommend you to go for ribeye cutting. 

It is a great cut that leads to steak without bones. 

Moreover, the cut does not affect the taste of the steak.

Seasoning

The second step is to add flavor to the steak.

How can you do that?

Yes, by seasoning. 

Sprinkle salt, pepper, and other species on the steak. 

Let them settle for a while on one side first. 

Now, flip the steak and repeat the process. 

You have to make sure that you leave the steak for a while after seasoning. 

You can even put it in the fridge for the whole night. 

Why are we doing this? 

It is because we want the species to mix with the steak properly. 

This will surely bring out the perfect flavor in the steak. 

Dry it

The third step is to remove the excess moisture and species. 

You can easily do that by patting the steak with a paper towel.

Make sure that you pat it for at least 1 minute.

This is an important step you get the perfect texture in the steak after grilling. 

This step will also remove the excess species that can ruin the taste. 

Grilling

Yes, you read that correctly. 

We are finally on the grilling step. 

However, before putting the steak on the grill, you need to do one last thing. 

You have to preheat the griller. 

Why? 

This is necessary to get the perfect texture of steak.

It will also prevent the burning of the steak while grilling. 

Make sure you preheat the griller at 1700F for about 20 minutes.

Yes, you can preheat at a lower temperature too, but in that case, you have to increase the time. 

It is also recommended to let the griller cool down after preheat. 

For how much duration? 

At least 5 minutes. 

Ok, now, everything is ready to grill the meat. 

Turn On the grill and set the temperature at 1600F. 

Put the steak on the griller. 

You can even apply some oil on the steak, before putting it on the grill. 

Moreover, you have to grill each side for an equal amount of time. 

Let’s say that your cutting of the steak is ideal, then you must grill each side for 2 minutes. 

However, can you assess the quality of the grilled steak? 

Yes, you can. 

First of all, the grill marks must be visible on both sides.

Secondly, the steak should be pressable by your pinky finger.
