Tip 1: Choose the Right Cut

The first step to a perfect steak is choosing the right cut of meat. Here are some popular options:

  • Ribeye: Known for its marbling and rich flavor.
  • Filet Mignon: Tender and lean.
  • New York Strip: A good balance of tenderness and flavor.
  • T-Bone/Porterhouse: Offers two different textures and flavors in one cut.

Tip 2: Prepping Your Steak

Preparation is key. Follow these steps for best results:

  • Season Generously: Coat the steak with a good amount of Ground Pounder Garlic Seasoning. Let it marinate for at least 30 minutes, or overnight for deeper flavor.
  • Bring to Room Temperature: Take the steak out of the fridge about 30-60 minutes before grilling. This ensures even cooking.

Tip 3: Mastering the Grill Marks

Achieving those perfect grill marks not only looks great but adds flavor:

  • Preheat Your Grill: Heat your grill to high. It should be hot enough that you can’t hold your hand over it for more than a few seconds.
  • Oil the Grates: Use a pair of tongs and a paper towel dipped in oil to grease the grates.
  • Placement and Timing: Place the steak on the grill and don’t move it for 2-3 minutes. Rotate it 45 degrees and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Flip and repeat for the other side.

Tip 4: Cooking to the Ideal Temperature

Use a meat thermometer to get the perfect doneness:

  • Rare: 120-130°F
  • Medium Rare: 130-135°F
  • Medium: 135-145°F
  • Medium Well: 145-155°F
  • Well Done: 155°F and above

Insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the steak without touching bone or fat.

Tip 5: Letting Your Steak Rest

Once your steak is off the grill, let it rest:

  • Rest Time: Let the steak rest for about 5-10 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute, making the steak more flavorful and tender.
  • Cover with Foil: Lightly cover with aluminum foil to keep it warm while resting.

Bonus Tip: Finishing Touches

Before serving, add a final touch of flavor:

  • Extra Seasoning: Sprinkle on a little more Ground Pounder Garlic Seasoning for an extra burst of flavor.
  • Butter and Herbs: Add a pat of butter and sprinkle with fresh herbs like rosemary or thyme.
