I’ve shared so many times before, the grill is an absolute staple in my home. I have spent an enormous amount of time in both my career and personal life cooking on a grill and I absolutely love a grilling moment. I’ve created so many fabulous recipes on the grill that include steaks, chicken, pork, fish, vegetables, fruits, pizza, bread, angel food cake, and so much more.  

I prefer the ease of a gas grill, but also love the flavor that comes from grilling on a charcoal grill. I’ve been blessed to work with Beef Loving Texans for over 20 years, and have gained so much knowledge on how to navigate a grill, purchase a grill, clean a grill, how to cook on a grill, not to mention the essential tools needed to grill….especially the perfect steak. 

Below, I’m sharing the steps to grill the perfect steak, as well as some of the tips and tricks I use when grilling! 

Grilling The Perfect Steak

Author Chef Tiffany Blackmon


1. Start Your Grill
Heat Grill to 400 F
2.  Clean Grates
Always start grilling with clean grates. Using a grill brush will remove any residue left on grates from previous grilling.
3. Season Steaks
Season steaks on both sides with a rub or simply salt and pepper. Marinading is always a flavorful option as well
4. Grill Time!
Place steaks on grill grates and grill until moisture starts to pool on the top and beef releases easily from grates with tongs. Turn once.
5. Determine Doneness
Grill on their side until desired internal temperature is reached. Use a meat thermometer inserted into thickest part of the steak.
6. Let It Rest 
Rest steaks on a cutting board for about 3 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute. 


~Hold your hand 4 inches above the heat source for 4 seconds before the heat requires you to remove your hand, the grill should be about 400 F.  

~Cleaning grates is always easier with a hot grill.  

~Use your favorite steak rub, marinade or simply salt and pepper to season. 

~Always use tongs instead of a fork to turn steaks.  This keeps delicious juices inside and prevents steak from drying out.  

~Check Beef Loving Texans doneness chart to learn more about your preferences.  

~The steak’s internal temperature continues to rise during resting.

I hope you all found these grilling tips helpful and enjoy your steak!
