Summer and BBQ go together like sunshine and the beach! But who can resist a juicy, flavorful grilled steak? In this article, we'll share our secrets for grilling the perfect steaks, from ribeye and T-bone to brisket and flank steak.

Choosing the Right Cut:

As the wise men say, success starts from the ground up. Here, our base is beef, and each cut has its own unique charm and flavor profile.

Ribeye: The king of fatty flavor, with rich marbling that melts in your mouth like a velvety embrace.

T-bone: The combination of filet mignon and ribeye in one cut, to satisfy every palate.

Brisket: Ideal for slow cooking, full of collagen that turns tender like butter.

Flank steak: Leaner with a bold flavor, perfect for quick grilling over high heat.

Secrets to Perfect Grilling:
  • Bring the steak to room temperature: Remove it from the refrigerator 30 minutes before grilling. This will help the steak cook evenly and retain its moisture.

  • Season generously with salt and pepper: You can also add other spices, such as garlic, paprika, or thyme, according to your taste preferences.

  • Preheat the grill: A simple method to ensure your fire is hot enough is to be unable to hold your hand over the fire for 2-3 seconds at the same height where you will place the steak.

  • Don't touch the steak too often: Let it cook undisturbed for 3-4 minutes per side for medium rare.

  • Use a meat thermometer: The surest way to make sure your steak is cooked to your desired level.

  • Let the steak rest: 5-10 minutes before serving, to retain its juices.

Side Dishes that Elevate:

Serve your perfect grilled steak with BBQ sauce, roasted vegetables, potatoes, or a fresh salad.

And don't forget:
  • For a smokier flavor: Add wood chips or smoking chips to the fire during grilling.

  • For juicier meat: If you are grilling, try searing your steak to lock in all the juices.

  • Trust your instincts: Don't be afraid to experiment with different temperatures and grilling times to find the perfect texture for you.

  • By eye: Grilled steak will have a beautiful golden color and will leave an aroma that will make your mouth water from miles away.

  • Don't be afraid to ask: If you have any questions, ask your butcher or search for recipes and tutorials online.

And above all:

Enjoy the process! BBQ is an experience, an opportunity to connect with loved ones, relax, and create unforgettable memories.

Happy grilling!
