Tips for Cooking the Best Steak

Steak Prep Basics

  • Cut of Steak – If you take nothing else from this post, remember to invest in good steak. The right steak, such as a good filet mignonribeye steak, or New York Strip Steak can make all the difference from an alright meal to an unforgettable one.  
  • Avoid Cold Steak – For perfectly grilled steak, bring your raw steak to room temperature before grilling. This ensures even cooking throughout the center of the steak and also gets you a better crust.
  • Simple Seasonings –  A simple blend of sea salt, black pepper, and garlic powder is sometimes all you need to season steak. However, there are endless creative ways to kick up the flavor and the heat and these recipes will show you how.

Grilling Basics

  • Cooking Temperature – When it comes to cooking, the key is to use high heat and cook the steak for the right amount of time. Without the heat, you won’t get those iconic grill marks that make you feel like a cowboy.  
  • Clean the Grill Grates – Before you grill, push all laziness aside and make sure all the crud from the last time is completely gone so that your new recipe flavors don’t get sabotaged.   
  • Steak Recipe Cooking Times – For thicker steaks, generally aim for 3-4 minutes per side over direct heat, then finish cooking over indirect heat until the steak reaches your desired level of doneness. On the other hand, thinner steaks only take about 1-2 minutes per side. 

Serving Time

  • Let the Steak Rest – I say it often enough but don’t forget to let your great steak rest before you slice it with a sharp knife.
  • Cut Against the Grain – With some exceptions, depending on the cut of steak, you will get a tender juicy steak bite when you slice it against the grain. This is especially important for skirt steak and flank steak.
  • Garnish – Some chopped parsley, chives, or cilantro can give your dish a pop of flavor and color to level up the steak’s presentation.

Pro Tip: Temperature of the Steak

The ideal internal temperature when cooking steak varies depending on the level of doneness you prefer. While I prefer rare to medium-rare steak, here is your guide for every preference. Instead of eye-balling it, invest in an instant-read thermometer for the most accurate reading. 

  • Rare: 120-125°F (49-52°C)
  • Medium Rare: 130-135°F (54-57°C)
  • Medium: 140-145°F (60-63°C)
  • Medium Well: 150-155°F (66-68°C)
  • Well Done: 160°F (71°C) or higher

What to Serve with Grilled Steak 

Grilled steak pairs wonderfully with a variety of side dishes to create a well-rounded and satisfying meal. Grilled carrots or asparagus are a favorite of mine. Creamy mash with tons of garlic butter and cream also never disappoints. In summer, corn on the cob grilled with some spices is always a good idea. And, don’t forget the crusty French bread to mop up all your tasty steak juices.

Leftovers & Reheating

Steak is easy to store and reheat later on for more satisfying meals. Place any leftover steak tightly wrapped in aluminum foil inside an airtight container for 3-5 days.

To reheat grilled steak, keep it in the aluminum foil and take it back to your grill. Feel free to add some butter, seasonings, and some beef broth or beer for moisture while it heats up again.

​Where do I find the best steaks?

You’ll be amazed at the quality of steak you can source from your local grocery store. Another great option is to go online and buy some of the best pasture-raised beef you’ll ever taste. White Oak Pastures, US Wellness Meats, and Primal Pastures are some popular sites. If you know of another high-quality meat supplier I should know about, drop a comment below.

What kind of grill do you recommend? 

When it comes to choosing a grill for your outdoor cooking adventures, I always want to give a shout-out to the Oklahoma Joe’s Judge Grill. This workhorse of a grill offers exceptional quality, durability, and versatility. With its spacious cooking surface, efficient heat distribution, and precise temperature control, you can achieve perfect results every time. 

What kind of charcoal do you recommend for the grill? 

When it comes to charcoal for grilling, you can’t go wrong with Cowboy Charcoal. Made from natural hardwood, you’ll get a clean and consistent burn that imparts a delicious smoky flavor to your grilled food. It’s free from additives and chemicals, ensuring a pure grilling experience without any unwanted flavors or odors.
