How To Grill A Steak
One of the great things about living the Whole Foods lifestyle is there is no need to give up a lot of your old favorites. It’s just clean eating which means if you do eat beef you want it to be from cattle that spent their lives on the open range and did not spend their last couple of months in a cattle pen being fattened up on corn and antibiotics. Once you have found your supplier of healthy beef you can enjoy it in many different ways.
• Your favorite marinade
• Nice cuts of Grass-fed. Grass-finished steak
• Mushrooms for topping if you’d like
Also, keep on hand a container you can marinate in, tong and barbecue utensils.
Step 1: Marinate Steak
The secret to a tender and delicious steak is to marinate for about 8 hours or overnight. Place your marinade in a container and place the steaks in the marinade, turning to coat on both sides. We use a simple marinade of olive oil, fresh garlic, gluten-free Worcestershire sauce, balsamic vinegar and freshly ground black pepper. This helps create a tender steak and doesn’t use any sugars that can burn on the grill.
Cover and refrigerate overnight or for about 8 hours. You can flip the steaks part way through the process to ensure even marinating. This works well with most any cut of beef.
Step 2: Grill
Take the steaks out of the fridge to bring to room temperature. Meanwhile, preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Place the steaks on the grill.
How long you’ll grill the steak on each side depends on the size of steak you have and how you like it done.
Here’s a handy little steak grilling chart to help you:
Rare -Medium Rare -Medium
3/4” steak 6 min each side -7 min each side -8 min each side
1” steak 7 min each side -8 min each side -9 min each side
1 ½” steak 9 min each side -10 min each side -12 min each side
These are just a guide and there will still be variables, depending on the type of steak you use, the heat of your grill and more. Steaks are rare when they reach an internal temperature between 120 – 130 F. -Medium rare is 130 – 140 F and -Medium is 140 – 150 F.
When ready, Flip the steaks and continue to grill for the prescribed amount of time. Some recipes suggest flipping steaks several times, but unless it’s a flank steak, this isn’t necessary and can actually dry your steak. Use tongs during this process. If you use a fork and puncture the meat when you flip it, much of the flavor will be lost.
Step 3: Serve
Let the meat stand about 5 minutes before serving. The steak will actually continue to cook slightly during this time, so take that into account when deciding to remove a steak from the grill. It’s always better to remove a steak from the grill earlier, rather than later because you can always put a steak back on the grill if you need it cooked more. It’s pretty hard to uncook and overcooked steak.
Serve your steak with sauteed mushrooms, grilled onions or a large pat of herbed butter.
