Considerations when Grilling Steak

When Bruce Gingrich is not tending to business matters with Lifechek Drug or one of his other endeavors he enjoys grilling.

To grill the perfect steak, consider these tips:

1. Use cowboy steaks. Cowboy steaks are perfectly marbled beef rib-eye or bone-in rib-eye steaks. According to corporate executive chef John Schenk of Strip House, this cut is best for grilling at home because the marbling, also known as fat, bastes the meat during cooking, which results in a juicy steak.

2. Rest the steaks on a grate. Steaks should rest for a minimum of five minutes on a grate once they achieve the desired temperature. Using a grate stops the cooking process by letting air circulate around the meat.

3. Bring the meat to room temperature. When preparing to grill, let steaks sit at room temperature for 20 minutes. This ensures the meat cooks evenly throughout.
