Now that grilling season is finally here, backyards, campsites, and public parks across America will soon be filled with laughter, the clacking of bottles, and the sweet smell of barbecue seasoning!
We only get half of the year for fun in the sun, so here are just a few tong-worthy tips to make sure every steak you serve your family is plate-worthy.
Give Your Steak Time To Unwind
When getting ready for their first barbecue of the season or a big family dinner, a lot of grill gurus will make the mistake of pulling the beef directly from the refrigerator and throwing it on the grill.
Not only does this mean that your meat will take longer to cook, but you also risk having it turn out looking unappetizing and tasting bland too.
Give your steak time to unwind before grilling by letting it sit for 20-30 minutes and watch the juices work when the time comes to cook!
Success Begins with Salt!
We all know that seasoning your steak is the secret to success, but are you using the oldest seasoning in the world: salt?
Family feast masters can be hesitant to use salt sometimes because it’s well-known for being hydrophobic, which can risk drying out your meat.
However, seasoning your steak with it will cause the salt to embed itself in the meat and mix with all of the juices and other seasonings to form a delicious exterior!
Keep Your Mind on the Moisture!
There is nothing worse in the world than a dried-out steak. Well, there are plenty of things that are worse out there, but a dried-out steak definitely makes the list of top ten!
We can get so caught up in making sure that our meat is safe to eat that we end up overcooking it and ruining the flavors. Grilling steak is like adding ingredients to a pasta sauce; it’s better to underload rather than overload!
Even if your steak isn’t that perfect medium-rare, remember that beef only needs a slight searing for safe eating and you’ll still have those delicious juices!
