The warm weather is finally sticking, and we are truly enjoying the sun here in Connecticut. Yes, we’re looking forward to tanning our winter skin – but more importantly, it’s about time to break out the grill.

Summertime seems to finally be here, and May is an exciting month for Ergo Chef. In addition to lots of fun upcoming events and barbecue weather, we’re starting a Knife of the Month Promotion this month. Because it’s barbecue season, we chose our Symon Steak Knife Set to kick off this new monthly deal.

Before we get into the functionalities of this knife set, let’s discuss the proper way to cook a steak. If you’re a meat lover, we’re sure that you have your own, favorite method. However, sometimes it’s good to revisit the basics and refresh your skill set. We headed over to the Food Network to see what the experts think about the best, easiest, way to grill a steak this summer.


  1. Remove steaks from the fridge at least 20 minutes before you want to grill them.
  2. Heat grill to high.
  3. Place the steaks on the grill, and cook for 4-5 minutes.
  4. Turn the steaks over and cook for 3-5 minutes (for medium rare), 5-7 minutes (medium), 8-10 minutes (medium-well).
  5. Transfer the steaks to a cutting board or platter, and let them rest for 5 minutes before serving.  To accurately check your preferred temp use as Digital fast read thermometer, as all grills and steaks are not alike.
