Grilling steak tips
Now when it comes to grilling steak – you have to be very careful or you can overcook it quickly. We find the best steak for grilling to be ones that are boneless – such as a ribeye, strip steak, top sirloin, or even flank steak. They grill up so nicely and are delicious for lunches as leftovers!
The best way to grill steak is to first let it sit out at room temperature for at least 20 minutes – you never want to throw a cold steak straight on the grill! The grill temp for steak should be set to 450-500 degrees while you brush your steaks with oil and lightly season with salt and pepper.
Place the steaks on the grill until golden brown for about 4-5 minutes and then flip over to continue grilling for at least 3-5 more minutes, as long as 8-10 minutes. It depends how you like your steak grilled, I personally am a medium rare girl! I love a juicy steak as long as it isn’t still mooing at me 😉
Once done grilling, transfer it to a cutting board and tent with foil for about 5 minutes before serving. By doing it this way, you will come out with a perfectly grilled steak every time. And you’ll have perfect leftovers for lunch the next day!
