Perfect Steaks Using Your Arizona Outdoor Kitchen

Grilling the perfect steak is easy!  Gilbert landscape design bbq

1.  Let the steak reach room temperature.

2.  Trim the steak of excess fat. Strips of fat should only be 1/4 inch thick.

3.  Season to your liking. Some fresh cracked pepper, garlic powder, whatever you like.

4.  Preheat gas grill on high.

5.  Oil the meat. Oil on the grate will burn off so brush a light coat of oil on the steak.

6.  Place steak on grill and close the lid for one minute.

7.  Lift lid and turn steak over. Close lid and continue grilling for another minute.

8.  Turn again and continue for 2 plus 1 minute per 1/2 inch (1 1/2 inch equals 3 minutes). These times are, of course, estimates. Depending on your   grill and other conditions it might take less or more time. This is where experience comes into play.

9.  Turn for the fourth time and continue grilling for 2 plus 1 minute per 1/2 inch.

10. Check for doneness with a meat thermometer.

11. Let steak rest for 5 minutes before carving or serving.

Tip:  Letting the steak rest before you eat it is an important trick. This allows the juices to seep throughout the meat and gives you a much more flavorful steak.
