T  ime to enjoy your meal

The Heat Is On
  • For a distinctly grilled flavor, use charcoal. The grill should be hot before cooking begins. For medium heat, the charcoals should completely ash over.
  • Test the temperature by holding your hand just above the cooking surface. If you can hold your hand there four seconds, it is ready.
  • If using a gas grill, set it on medium 10 minutes before cooking.
Steps for Grilling
  • Place the beef on a preheated grill (preheat for at least 15 minutes) or over moderately hot wood or coals about 3-5 inches away from heat source. If cooking frozen steaks, place the rack 5 - 6 inches from heat source.
  • Grill until juices come through the uncooked top side (time depends on the thickness of the meat, the temperature of the heat source and the
    desired degree of doneness).
  • Turn the beef using tongs or a spatula to avoid piercing the meat, and
    season the cooked side, if desired. Baste beef with marinade or sauce throughout cooking time, if desired.
  • Continue cooking until beef reaches desired Degree of Doneness.
  • Take the beef off the grill just a bit before it's “perfect”.
  • Allow the beef to rest 10 minutes on a platter. As it does, the warm juices inside the steak continue cooking it to the desired doneness.
