We usually add our steak rub to all of our steaks, burgers and beef roasts on the grill. Sometimes we like to go for a more simple preparation with just salt and pepper, especially if you have a great quality steak.

  • Sear steaks over direct fire for about 5 minutes with the grill closed, lowering grill temperature to about 350°.
  • Flip the steaks and continue to cook until desired doneness is reached. A digital meat thermometer is the best way to know when to pull the steaks off of the grill. We pulled ours at about 130°.

  • Slice steak and reheat in a skillet with a bit of butter over low heat. Stir until heated through.

Tips for Choosing a Good Steak for Grilling:

Cuts:

  • Ribeye Steaks are our pick for the perfect steak on the grill. They are rich, juicy and full of flavor thanks to plenty of fat marbling throughout. Choose a thicker steak 1 1/2 – 1 3/4 inch thick for grilling.
  • T-Bone Steaks are another cookout favorite. Tender, flavorful and satisfying.
  • Strip Steaks are a tender, more lean steak. great for grilling.
  • Top Sirloin is a less expensive cut great served as steak or kabobs.

Grading:

  • Prime is the superior choice. Produced from young, well fed cattle that results in the best marbling for the best flavor.
  • Choice is most commonly available in grocery stores and has a good amount of marbling but less than prime. 
  • Select is more lean with less marbling and is less expensive. 

Marbling:

  • Steaks with a lot of marbling will grill up more tender, juicy and flavorful.
