How to Grill Steak

When grilling steaks, make sure the grill is hot before adding meat. A hot grill sears the steaks, sealing the outside of the meat so the inside stays moist and juicy. Keep the temperature of the grill as even as possible. Since the center of the grill tends to be hotter, place thicker cuts of steaks near the center of the grate and thinner cuts toward the outer edges.

How to Slice Cooked Steak for Most Tenderness

Cooked steak, especially the less tender cuts of meat, should always be allowed to rest, loosely covered, before being sliced. This standing time allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat so it remains juicy. This standing time can range from 4 to 5 min. for thin steaks, to 8 to 10 min. for thicker steaks. For best results, slice cooked steaks across the grain before serving. Place the unsliced meat on a cutting board and look for the direction of the grain. (The meat will have small lines running in one direction.) You may need to slice the meat in 2 different directions to determine the direction of the grain. Use a sharp slicing knife to cut the meat across the fibers into thin slices. If you have an electric knife, you can use that to quickly slice the meat.

How to Grill Juicy Steaks

Use tongs to turn steaks on the grill when the bottom is well browned. Piercing with a fork will cause the juices to run out, resulting in a less juicy steak.
