Gas Grilling Tips For Steaks
Gas grills have become a “must-have” item in most American backyards, patios, and decks. Thanks to gas grills, cooking has moved from the confines of the kitchen to the great outdoors, and grilling can be done year-round in most parts of the country. Meaning…you can grill a delicious steak tonight and any night!
Following are helpful gas grilling tips for steak:
• The grill should always be hot before you put on your steaks. Preheat your gas grill for at least 30 minutes before putting the steaks on the grill.
•To keep the steaks from sticking to the grill, oil the grate before cooking. Use a piece of fat that you’ve cut off one of your steaks, and rub it across the grill, using a pair of tongs.
•If you have a two-burner gas grill, turn one of the burners to medium heat (you’ll use this one to cook your well-done steaks) and one of the burners to high heat (you’ll use this one to cook your rare steaks and medium steaks).
•For rare steaks and medium-rare steaks you’ll cook the steaks fast over high heat, which will char the outsides, while keeping the insides red and tender.
•For medium steaks and well-done steaks, you’ll want to start a few minutes earlier and keep the steaks on medium heat, so that the insides of the steaks can cook more completely.
•Grilling times for steaks will vary according to the temperature of your grill, the thickness of your steaks, and how well done you want the steaks to be, but in general it takes 10 minutes to 30 minutes to grill the perfect steak.
•Fat adds flavor to steaks, but be sure to trim excess fat from your steaks to prevent fat drippings from creating flare-ups of flames.
