Many of you might recall a rather popular post of ours, where I showed you how to make steaks exactly the way steakhouses do it. You all responded so positively to it, that when WalMart asked me to participate in their #steakover challenge, I knew you’d be game.
Today, you’re going to learn the very best way to grill a steak.
First and foremost, you need a quality cut of meat in order to have a great end product. Walmart’s USDA Choice Premium Beef is a good place to start. I chose ribeyes for their great fat content, which will give you great flavor, and the new york strip because it’s a tender cut of lean meat. Then you need to make sure to give your steak plenty of great flavor. In my house, we believe that the combination of garlic, salt and pepper can make just about anything sing. It’s not about masking the flavor of the beef, but enhancing it.
Let your steaks marinate in olive oil, plenty of garlic, salt and pepper and worchestershire sauce for a few hours prior to grilling. When you grill your meat, you want to make sure it’s really hot to get a great sear and lock in all those great juices. You also want to make sure you don’t over cook the meat. If you feel like you can’t tell when your meat is medium rare, just rely on a meat thermometer. It should be pulled from the grill and covered at 135 degrees.
The important take away is that if you start with great, fresh and quality ingredients, you’ll have an amazing result.
