Grilled to Perfection – Make the Perfect BBQ Steak

The perfect steak

Is there such thing as a perfect steak? Well, the answer’s pretty biased because everybody would claim that they cooked the perfect steak right in their backyard and not from a 5-star restaurant. Cooking and grilling steak is a favourite pastime for a lot of people simply because a lot of people love eating them, unless your religion forbids you to do so (which, I think,  is a terrible shame to miss out on a great thing like steak). Is it a real challenge to cook the perfect steak?

Grilling is serious business

Grilling is serious business because in order to cook the perfect steak, you need the right equipment. You have read right: EQUIPMENT. You have to know how you want to cook the perfect BBQ steak in order to preserve the juiciness and nutrients that go with it. You don’t want to lose precious calcium and protein that would prevent you from visiting medical centers like If you think that grilling the perfect steak only requires you to put a thick slab of meat on the grill, you thought wrong.


How to cook the perfect BBQ steak

Before cooking:

  1. Buy the best meat that you would not feel guilty on splurging on. If possible, go for dry-aged beef for a more concentrated flavour.
  2. When you take it out of the freezer, leave it out for 2 to 3 hours
  3. Wipe or pat the steak with paper towels to absorb moisture.
  4. Brush or rub some cooking oil on the steak for better crusting.

Preparing the grill:

  1. Clean the grill or plate. Make sure that there are no traces of rust or residues from past grills.
  2. You need two areas in your grill; high heat area and low heat area. You can do this by having two separate areas, or just lowering the heat on one area.
  3. Rub some oil on the grill.
  4. Pre-heat the grill.

As you cook:

  1. Put the steaks on your high heat area and cook each side for 3 to 5 minutes. If you are cooking boned parts, you may have to increase the time.
  2. Once you’re done with the high heat, move the steak to the low-heat area (or simply turn down the heat of your grill) and let it sit for 10 minutes. This should give you a medium type of steak.
  3. After removing it from the grill, place the steak in an aluminium foil and cover it. Let it sit for 5 minutes. This will give you a more tender meat, with more protein intact.
  4. You are done.
