How-to: Grill a Steak

There are few things better to eat than a perfectly cooked steak in my opinion. But often times cooking them at home can be intimidating. There are so many variables involved in getting that perfect sear on the outside, without drying your steak out completely. Hopefully these tips will help!

  1. Seasoning: With Parker Family Beef, do not, I repeat, DO NOT marinate or over-season!! You do not need to add much to our steaks. The flavor of the meat itself is so delicious! Simply add salt (I like pink Himalayan salt or kosher salt best!) and a little black pepper right before placing it on the grill!
  2. Cooking Temperature: In order to achieve a nice sear on the outside without over cooking the steak, you want to start with a hot grill that has been heated on medium high heat. Place the steaks on the hot grill and simply cook for 2-4 minutes per side, depending on the level of doneness you desire.
  3. Let the steaks rest: Once the steaks come off the grill, it’s tempting to just dig right in. But if you let them rest, it gives the juices a chance to settle back into the meat, leaving your steak tender, juicy and absolutely delicious! Simply place steaks on a cutting board or plate and loosely tent with a piece of foil. Let them rest for about 10-15 minutes before digging in!

We hope with these 3 tips you’ll be on your way to making a delicious steak in no time!
