How to Cook Steak on the Grill
How to cook steak on the grill is one of those questions asked by almost every amateur chef in existence. The only response is usually, “I don’t know… I never cooked that way.”
A friend of mine started asking how to cook a steak on the grill when he received his first cut of “proper” beef. After flipping through the pages of the nutrition facts, he found out that 1 g of protein per pound is the recommended daily intake. He was shocked! He had been eating three steaks a day with the same amount of protein. He then began searching for a good recipe that showed him how to cook a steak on the grill. He found a simple recipe that called for a strip steak to be marinated in white wine, grilled until pink, and served with a lemon wedge.
For this recipe, he wanted to make sure the steak was properly seasoned and rested before being placed in the marinade.
To do that, he brought two cups of white wine to a boil over a low flame. Once the wine was brought to a simmer, he threw in a tablespoon or so of each dry ingredient (onion, garlic, pepper, cumin, chili powder, black pepper, dried oregano, thyme, basil, salt, and Rosemary) and a quarter teaspoon of salt. After gently simmering the ingredients for about fifteen minutes, he checked on the steak to see if it was at the desired temperature. It was!
Before cooking the steaks, he wrapped each one in aluminum foil to help retain the juices and reduce burning. When the steaks were done cooking, he let them rest on a wire rack set inside a half sheet of aluminum foil. This gave them the time they needed to absorb the juices. While the steaks were resting, he also used the remaining juices from the marinade to cook the onions, garlic, peppers, cumin, chili powder, and salt. This helped immensely in getting all those spices to a more intense state.
On How to Cook Steak on the Grill, Salt is a crucial component in any recipe
It makes everything taste rich, but too much salt will ruin any dish. So, for how to cook a steak on the grill, he put four generous servings on one side of each plate and then added a Tablespoonful of his favorite barbecue sauce, followed by a tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce. Then, he placed the plate with the steak on top, followed by another plate with two small pieces of tomatoes and two small pieces of sliced mushrooms. So, what was waiting for?
The steak was now ready to be served. So, he put the steak on one of the serving plates and inserted a toothpick into it. Then, he placed the other end of the toothpick into the steak’s cavity so that the juices would drip into the pan. After that, he placed the steak on the opposite end of the oven and cooked it for about 1 minute to give it the proper amount of time to seal in the juices.
Then, for how to cook a steak in the oven, he again used a toothpick to determine when to flip.
He flipped each piece of meat once, followed by a second flip. Once both sides were done, he placed the steaks on a large plate and then placed the other end of the oven on top of it. He let them cook for another 20 minutes to fully cook them. When they were done, he turned the oven off, removed the plates, and put the steaks on a platter for eating.
