Perfectly Grilled Beef Steak Recipe-

Ingredients: (serves 4)
  1. About 30 minutes before grilling, remove the steaks from the refrigerator and let sit, covered, at room temperature.
  2. Heat your grill to highest temperature. Brush the steaks on both sides with oil and season liberally with salt and pepper. Place the steaks on the grill and cook until golden brown and slightly charred on the bottom, 4 to 5 minutes. (If you want really rare steak, that is, browned and charred on the outside, but still cool and bloody in the center, grill only 3 to 4 minutes)
  3. Turn the steaks over and spoon one tablespoon of butter on each steak, spreading it evenly over the surface. Continue to grill 3 to 5 minutes for medium-rare (an internal temperature of 135 degrees F), 5 to 7 minutes for medium (140 degrees F) or 8 to 10 minutes for medium-well (150 degrees F). For really rare steak, grill for no more than 3 minutes on this side.
  4. Transfer the steaks to a cutting board or platter, tent loosely with foil and let rest 5 minutes before serving your Perfectly Grilled Beef Steak. Americans love their steak served with baked potatoes and gravy, and maybe a good salad or some green veggies.

  1. I’m gonna show this one to hubby …. he is a grilling fanatic, especially steaks, so I’m sure he’ll love this one.

  2. I consider myself as an expert in the field of grilled steaks. But your idea of basting with the garlic herb butter is a new twist, and it sounds like a good one. Will give it a go – thanks!
