Grilled steak is a favorite with a lot of people. Although it is not very difficult to grill steaks there are some methods which are very helpful for grilling perfect steaks. Mentioned below are some very good tips which will help you prepare the steak prior to putting it on the grill.
There are different ways in which people cook the steak. There are some who put it on the grill just after removing from the freezer while others keep it in the refrigerator at night so that the steak gets soft before it is grilled. For best result the steaks should be removed from the freezer and kept outside for some time so that it comes to the normal temperature slowly before it is grilled. If the steak is not thawed correctly then it will be uneven when the cooking is done. Some parts will be more cooked than the others depending on how frozen it was.
You may not realize it but preparing the steak well before putting it on the grill holds a lot of importance. It is also needed to trim the extra fat like you do for other types of meat. The fat does not allow the steak to be grilled well and evenly. Cover the meat after you have added all the spices for some time so that all the flavors have been soaked by the steak. It is good to keep it for some time but avoid keeping it for more than a day.
The temperature at which the grill is heated is also important. It is best to keep the heat to the maximum in a gas grill and you should also have high heat on the charcoal grill. You can check this as the charcoal turns white when it is very hot. The hotter the grill the better it gets, so you can even cover the grill. The steaks cook best and also properly when the grill is very hot so make sure that it gets especially hot.
The way it cooks on the grill depends on how well you have prepared the steak. If you follow the tips mentioned afore, you can be sure that your steak will be cooked to perfection and you will enjoy it.
