How To Cook The Perfect Steak

Before you grill:
  • Bring out the food from the refrigerator at least an hour before grilling to ensure even heat penetration and quicker cooking.
  • Preheat the grill on high heat for at least 15 minutes. Add food items to the grill one at a time.

Once you start:

Once your food touches the grill, leave it there. Trying to reposition it will just damage the item. Don't press down on foods being cooked or you will lose the juices and fat. Without the juices, the result is a dry and tasteless product. Pressing out the fat will cause flare-ups and product carcinogens compounds that are harmful.

Simple rules in grilling:

  • Turn over the food item only once.
  • Don't press down to avoid flare-ups and the leaking out of juices during the cooking process.

I'll have to get my cousin to look at this. He can never cook a steak (or anything for that matter) right! :)
