Steak Grilling Tips For The Perfect Certified Angus Beef Steak

Before attempting our Certified Angus Beef recipe above, read these tips to ensure your steaks receive the right amount of attention:

  • Be sure to start with a hot grill. It’s important that the meat sears as it cooks in order to lock in its natural juices during grilling.

  • Refrain from piercing the steaks as they grill. When you turn the steaks, use a spatula or set of tongs, and only turn the steaks once.

  • Determine doneness by using a thermometer.

  • Ensure utensils that come in contact with raw meat never touch meat on the grill. Set them aside and use another set of tongs to handle the meat while grilling.

  • Never cut into steaks immediately after removing them from the grill. Allow the steaks to rest for a few minutes to keep the natural juices inside.
