Jackie Said:everytime i grill steak it comes out dry and flavorless what am i doing wrong? should i marinade them?
We Answered:make sure you are seasoning it. i like my tbones with just some seasoned salt and pepper. put it on both sides. if its a really thick steak, don't be afraid to put a lot on there. you can also try steak seasoning, its located next to the herbs and spices.
its dry because you are grilling it too long. turn up the heat a little and sear it on both sides. this will seal the juices in. then turn the heat down and cook only a few minutes on each side.
Tonya Said:Best way to grill steak?
We Answered:This works with all kinds of steak, but best with rib eye.
Put your steaks in a shallow baking dish. Pour just enough Cider Vinegar over them to get them wet. Make sure you get it on both sides. Vinager acts as a meat tenderizer and gives an awesome bite to the steak.
Sprinkle liberally with Montreal Steak Seasoning. There are many different brands that make this, but they all call it Montreal Steak Seasoning. I like McCormick the best. Make sure you put it on both sides of the meat.
Put this in the fridge to marinate for no more than 1/2 hour. If you leave it too long, your steak will have an obvious vinegar flavor, you don't want that.
Cook the steak on the grill. How long on each side depends on the thickness and the cut of your steak, and how you like it. Just keep an eye on it.
Just before you pull the steaks off the grill put just a pat of butter on top of each one. When it has melted, you're done.
Steak this way has the bite of the vinegar, the full hearty flavor because of the spices, and then a smooth, rich flavor because of the butter. Try it, you'll be sorry if you don't.
For your cheaper cuts of meat that lack in flavor try this:
Tenderize the steak with powder tenderizer (again, I like McCormick). In a sauce pan, add about half a small bottle of heinz 57 sauce, and one stick of butter. When the butter is melted, it's ready. Brush this over your steaks as they are cooking, and serve on the side as steak sauce on the table. This has great kick to it, and it's so simple. You can adjust the amount of butter to sauce ratio to your liking, but remember, too much butter will cause flare ups on your grill.
Travis Said:How do you cook a steak without a grill?
We Answered:Season & place under the broiler in your oven. Depending how thick they are, go by 6 or 8 mins per side for the pink to remain in the middle. Bon Appetite!
Marcus Said:What is the best way to grill a steak?
We Answered:why waste the beer?
Beer can be used to marinate tougher cuts of meat, it's actually pretty good with a chuck roast, beer,bay leaves,pepper and onions.But, that doesn't answer YOUR question!
Fire up your grill, let it preheat for about 15-20 mins.
let your steak sit at room temp for about 30 mins to bring it up to room temp. pat dry with a clean paper towel, rub a little olive oil onto it, season w/ S & P, garlic powder, and if you like, a little ground fennel seed.
Place your steak on the hot grill ( if gas, lower heat to medium & cover after putting steak on) after about 4 mins flip the steak over using tongs. after 3 mins. rotate the steak 180 degrees.( this is how you get those nice grill marks) let cook for 3 more mins. flip steak over, cook for 3-4 more mins. depending on how you like it cooked. Remove from heat & let it rest for about 10 mins before serving. This allows the juices to re-distribute themselves throughout the meat. Dig in !!
Crystal Said:How do you grill a steak and have it turn out like a Ruth's Chris steak?
We Answered:Dry aging is part of it. For the grill, put on medium-high heat(that means you can hold your hand above the grill rack for about 3-4 seconds comfortably) once grill is well heated, slap on your seasoned steak of choice (ribeye will be your most flavorful)on the rack. About 7-8 minutes on each side produces a medium-rare steak. Dont cut the steak open to check doneness! Trust your timing. Take the steak off the grill and let sit for 5 minutes to let the juices evenly distribute throughout the meat. As far as the butter you are on your own there. Real steak should never be tampered with. Enjoy!
Sidney Said:Best way to grill steak inside and have it be 'tender'?
We Answered:Well filets are probably the most tender steak, so you won't get that same effect with a different cut of meat. If you are looking for a simple steak that is delicious try a rib eye. Just salt and pepper under the broiler for about 5 minutes per side. Take it out of the oven and let it sit on the counter for about 5 minutes before you serve it. It's not going to be fork tender, but it will still be very good. Some steaks can't be cooked this long at all. For example if you are making a skirt steak, marinade it overnight then pop in in a HOT frying pan (you may have to cut it in half to fit, they tend to be long and thin) for about 3 minutes per side. Again let it rest and slice on a bias against the grain.
