5 Tips for Grilling a Perfect Steak

Make sure your summer steaks are grilled to perfection with these tips from John Schenk, Executive Chef at Strip House. Your guests will be talking about your delicious and memorable dinner all summer long!

1. Use blended oil
A 90/10 or 80/20 canola/extra virgin olive oil combination should be used to thoroughly coat steaks before cooking.

2. Dip, don't brush
Dipping steaks in oil works better than brushing with oil, because it doesn't rub off the seasoning.

3. Keep it simple
The only seasoning you need for a perfect steak is coarsely ground black pepper and kosher salt on the steak before cooking, and a light dusting of pure medium-grind sea salt just before serving.

4. The hotter the better
Whether cooking your steak on a grill or flat-bottomed cast-iron pan, high heat helps develop an flavorful browned exterior without compromising a medium to rare texture on the inside of the steak.

5. Make it marbled
Best steaks for grilling are perfectly marbled, certified Black Angus ribeye. Marbling enhances flavor and keeps meet juicy.
