How to grill the perfect steak

CHILL OUT

Please remove thawed meat from the refrigerator and let rest at room temperature for at least 30 minutes before cooking.

READY, SET, SEAR!

Pre-heat your Gas or Charcoal Grill: Sear over high heat EACH SIDE for 1 minute with lid closed. Then transfer steak to indirect heat OR reduce heat to low. Close lid and cook according to the times and temperatures below. Steaks will continue to rise in temperature 5 to 10 degrees while at rest after grilling.

GRILLING TIMES

Times are organized by thickness and temperature for easy grilling. Grill times are suggested guidelines only, actual times may vary depending upon your grill type and temperature.

GIVE IT A REST
