There's something magical about a grilled steak. The smoky flavor, the perfect char, and the juicy inside—it's a culinary delight. But what if you're not a grill master? Don't worry, we've got you covered with this easy grilled steak recipe. Plus, when it's winter, you can cook the steak in a cast iron skillet right in your kitchen.

My Grilling Journey

Confession time. The first time I grilled, I nearly burnt my parents' house down. Flames shot out of the back of the grill almost to the roof! After that incident, I didn't touch a grill for nearly 10 years. But now, 12 years later, I'm successfully grilling without starting any fires.

How to Grill a Delicious Steak

Let's go from "I don't touch the grill" to "check out this delicious steak!" Here's how:


  • Your Favorite Steak Cut (you can buy that here)
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • ¼ tsp Pepper
  • ½ tsp Garlic Powder
  • ½ tsp Onion Powder

Tip: For grilling, choose a steak that is at least 1 inch thick. Whether you prefer bone-in or boneless, sirloin, t-bone, or ribeye, this recipe works for all.


  1. Preheat the Grill

Preheat your grill to 500 degrees F. It's crucial to wait until it reaches the right temperature to sear the steaks and lock in the juices.

  1. Prepare the Seasoning

While the grill is heating, mix the salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder.

  1. Season the Steaks

Rub the seasoning mixture over both sides of the steaks.

  1. Sear the Steaks

Place the steaks on the hot grill and sear for 1-2 minutes on each side.

  1. Cook to Desired Doneness

Continue cooking the steaks to your preferred level of doneness. Serve hot.

Pro Tip to Avoid Grill Fires

To prevent grill fires, ensure the grease trap is empty and there's no grease buildup at the bottom of the grill. Grease dripping onto the heat can cause flare-ups.

Grilling requires your attention. If you need to step away, make it quick. Modern grills can connect to your phone and alert you if there's an issue while you're away.

Cast Iron Cooking Option

For those cold winter days, you can follow the same directions using a cast iron skillet on your stovetop. Sear the steaks on high heat, then reduce to medium-high. It may take longer, but the results are just as delicious.
