Easy Grilled Steak
September 4, 2023
Something about a steak on the grill, just tastes better than any other steak. The problem is you are no grill master and no one is home to cook it for you. I got you! Here’s an easy grilled steak recipe. Plus, when it’s winter, you can easily cook the steak in a cast iron skillet in the house.
Confession time. This first time I grilled, was the last time I grilled for close to 10 years. I caught the grill on fire (like flames out the back almost to the roof), almost burned my parents’ house down, and wasn’t allowed to touch the grill again. Nor did I want to…But now 12 years later I can successfully grill without starting a major fire.
So now how do you go from I don’t touch the grill to delicious steak? Let’s get to it.
What you’ll need:
- Your Favorite Steak Cut (you can buy that here)
- 1t Salt
- ¼ t pepper
- ½ t garlic powder
- ½ t onion powder
It doesn’t matter about the steak. For grilling I do recommend it is cut at least 1 inch thick. Pick your favorite: bone in or boneless, sirloin, t-bone, ribeye, etc.
- 1. Pre-heat grill to 50 degrees F. Do not put the steaks on before it comes to temperature. They will need to hit the hot grill to sear and lock in the juices.
- 2. While the grill is heating, mix the salt, pepper, garlic, and onion.
- 3. Separate the steaks and rub the salt mixture over both sides of the steak.
- 4. Sear the steaks for 1-2 minutes on each side.
- 5. Continue to cook to desired doneness and serve hot.
Here’s the secret to not starting a grill fire. Make sure the grease trap is empty and there isn’t grease built up on the bottom of the grill. What usually starts the fire, is the grease dipping down, hits the heat, and flares up.
Grilling is not a put on and walk away method. If you are going to walk away for a bit, be quick. Our grill will connect to my phone and let me know if there is an issue while I’m away, like gathering other ingredients or supplies, or helping a child in the bathroom.
For the Cast Iron cooking, follow the same directions on the stove top. Sear on high heat and then lower heat to medium-high. It will take longer to cook, but it will still be delicious.
