Keep Your Grill Fired Up!

T-Bone Steaks

There is still plenty of time left to enjoy the warm nights of summer and the tasty foods that come off the grill.  All of us in the East remember this past winter all too well and are in no hurry for a repeat performance.  So I, for one, am determined to keep my grill fired up, and the tasty foods of summer flowing through this house.

The first time that I decided to tackle the grill, it was a dark, rainy, 43 degree night. Who knows why these moods strike when they do, but with the help of my internet searches and my Facebook friends,  I successfully cooked four T-Bone steaks.  I am very grateful that my husband did not disclose the cost of the steaks prior to my experiment.  Try the steps below and let me know how your steaks turn out.  I would also love to hear what your side dishes were.  I am a recipe junkie!  

If you don’t have a grill or just simply are more in the mood for chicken, check out our Homemade Fried Chicken recipe.  Happy Cooking!

 

Steps to a fabulous steak:

  1. Rub both sides of the steaks with salt. Let the steaks rest at room temperature for 60 minutes.
  2. Put all the grill burners on high and close the lid.
  3. Clean the grill with a grill brush.
  4. Turn the rear burners to low.
  5. Pat down the steaks with paper towels and rub with cracked pepper.
  6. Place steaks on the front burners in the horizontal position with the tenderloin facing the cooler side of the grill, close lid and leave for 6 minutes.
  7. Flip the steaks, close lid and leave for an additional 6 minutes. Make sure the tenderloin side remains closer to the cooler part of grill.
  8. Place steaks vertically on the grill with the bone end toward to the front burners for an additional 2 minutes, with the lid closed. This will allow the meat around the bone to finishing cooking.
  9. Test the steaks with a meat thermometer. Check out this Food Network Meat Temperature Guide to find your preference (and remember the beef will continue to cook after coming off the grill).  Continue cooking to your desired temperature.
  10. Pull off the grill and let stand on a cutting board for 10 minutes.
  11. Cut the meat away from the bone and slice against the grain.
