Benefit for health

First, though, let’s briefly discuss some of the health benefits that you can get by eating steak. Some people claim that eating red meats, like steak, is unhealthy because this type of meat can increase your chances of developing heart disease. However, this is untrue if you consume it in moderation. It’s recommended that you limit your consumption to around 3 ounces per serve and only have red meat three to four times a week. If you do this, red meats can provide several health benefits. For example, it can be a great way of getting more protein into your diet. It also has high levels of iron, which your body uses to transport oxygen around the body. Now that we know some of the reasons why you should eat red meats, let’s look at the best way to grill your steak.

What to look for when cooking steak

Cooking a steak is relatively simple, you only need to use a limited amount of ingredients and utensils. First, apply a small amount of salt and pepper to season the steak. Next, you need to prepare the grill. Make sure that it’s been oiled evenly. You should also ensure that the grill is turned up to high heat, this ensures that the flavors are locked into the steak. It also helps make the outside crispy while the inside is moist and juicy. The length of time that you will need to cook the steak for depends on how you would like it to be cooked and the thickness of the cut. For example, a medium one-inch steak should be cooked for 1 minute per position. Alternatively, a well done one-inch steak will need to be cooked for around 2 minutes per position.  Another key aspect of cooking effectively is to understand the four different positions. First, you have to lie them flat and straight. Then, rotate them 45 degrees, this will form the criss-cross shape on the top of the steak, when served. Next, flip the steak over and lie it straight on the grill. The fourth and final position is achieved by rotating the meat 45 degrees on the grill. By this point, the steak should appear nicely cooked. However, should use a thermometer to determine the doneness of the meat.

How to determine the readiness of steak

One of the best ways to make sure that your steak is cooked perfectly is by measuring the internal temperature. Generally, the rare steak should be between 120 to 130 degrees Fahrenheit (48 to 54 degrees Celsius). For medium doneness, you should aim for between 130 to 150 degrees Fahrenheit (54 to 65 degrees Celsius). If you want your meat well-done, you should have a temperature of over 170 degrees Fahrenheit (76 degrees Celsius). Finally, you need to rest the meat for at least five minutes. This will allow the juices to flow through the steak, enhancing the flavor. Now that we know the best way to make sure that your steak has been perfectly grilled, let’s look at some of the common mistakes that you should try to avoid.

By changing the method of cooking you can achieve the desired taste

The best taste can be gained by altering the way you cook the steak. First, you should avoid bringing the meat directly from the fridge to the grill. Cold meat will take longer to cook in the center. It’s recommended that you should leave the steak at room temperature for at least 30 minutes before you start cooking. You can use this time to make sure that it’s seasoned correctly. In addition, you should make sure that the meat is dry when you put it onto the grill. This will ensure that the steak forms the best possible crust. Also, you should avoid cooking individual steaks for large gatherings. It will be easier for you to cook one large piece of steak perfectly, then divide it up amongst the guests.  Finally, the type of grill that you use might impact on how well the meat gets cooked. For example, charcoal briquettes or the use of lighter fluid can give the steak an unpleasant kerosene flavor. The best cooking material is wooden logs, which will enhance the flavors of the steak.

Steak is combined with other dishes

Whether cooking for a family gathering or just for yourself, steak is a great option. This versatile meat can be paired with a range of food and drinks, making it perfect for any occasion. We discussed some the best technique so that you can get the most flavor from your steaks. So, fire up the grill and cook a delicious steak today.
