How to barbecue the perfect steak


Mon, May 2nd, 2016
Posted in All Agriculture

The steakhouse is a family favourite for its flavourful cuts of beef, so to save money, the grilling experts at Broil King are here to show us how to re-create those same savoury steaks on our own gas barbecues. Here are their tips.

• If it doesn't sizzle, it's not hot enough. Preheat your grill to at least 450* for great sear marks and steakhouse quality results.

• Season the grill: a thin coating of oil on a hot grill both protects the grill surface and keeps your food from sticking. A refillable oil mister is an easy way to do this. Tip: Always turn the burners to low before spraying oil; never use non-stick sprays with aerosol since they are flammable.

• Marinate your steak for 30 minutes to two hours (most cuts) to infuse complementary flavours into the meat.

• Any sweet or sugary barbecue sauce should be applied in the last two minutes on the grill, or after the meat is removed. These sauces burn easily and can ruin a great steak.

• Try a compound butter: first soften the butter to room temperature and then mix in the flavouring of your choice, such as blue cheese, sundried tomato or cheddar & jalapeno. Top the hot steak with a pat of this butter and watch the flavour melt all over the grilled meat.

• Choose your weapon: don't pierce your steak, use a good set of tongs to turn them. The more you poke holes, the more flavour and tenderness escapes.

• Let it rest: cutting into a steak right off the grill lets juices escape onto the plate. Let any steak rest for five minutes before serving. The juices will settle evenly throughout the steak, giving a more tender, flavourful and enjoyable dining experience.
