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.
Springs’ warmer weather seems to finally be here, and May is an exciting month for Ergo Chef. In addition to lots of fun upcoming events like Mohegan Sun BBQ Festival in June, we want you to be prepared for cooking and slicing up all your delicious grilled proteins.
Let’s start by discussing 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.
- Remove steaks from the fridge at least 20 minutes before you want to grill them.
- Heat grill to high.
- Place the steaks on the grill, and cook for 4-5 minutes.
- Turn the steaks over and cook for 3-5 minutes (for medium rare), 5-7 minutes (medium), 8-10 minutes (medium-well).
- 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.
