How To Grill the Perfect Steak

I am a grill girl!!  That’s me…I love to grill! I have grilled so many fabulous recipes on my grill from steaks, bread, angel food cake, fruits, vegetables, and pizza.  I prefer gas grilling for ease but love the flavor of a charcoal grill.  I have had the blessed opportunity to work for Beef Loving Texans for over 20 years and have learned so much and want to share! I always use their incredible information as a resource and you should too!  By the way, their recipes are incredible, take a peek.  I have shared with you below how to grill the perfect steak. 

Go to their website to learn SO MUCH MORE!!  Enjoy!

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 the other side until desired internal temperature it reached.  Use a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of 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.
