Barbecued steak is one of the highlights of summer. A rich juicy steak paired with some fresh summer vegetables is a match made in heaven. That is if you make sure you cook it correctly. There is nothing worse than purchasing a beautiful steak and not taking the proper steps necessary to ensure it is cooked to perfection. With Fuego Diablo Premium Steaks you are starting with the ultimate steak marbled to perfection you do not want to make an error in cooking. Use these tips to cook the perfect steak.
How to Cook the Perfect Steak in 5 Easy Steps
Step 1: Defrost steak – either by allowing to defrost in the fridge (about 24 hours) or if you must defrost quickly by placing them in a sink of cold water for 90 minutes (in their packaging).
Step 2: Prepping for grilling – contrary to popular belief coating your steak in marinades or sauces is not the best way to bring out the flavour. A great steak has all the flavour you will need so bring it to room temperature and season with salt and pepper. If you like a rub or steak spice add a little but not so much that it’s overpowering the natural flavours.
Step 3: Grill! Preheat your grill, place your steak on, set a timer and breathe in the delicious smell of BBQ steak. My general rule is about 5-6 minutes per side but that needs to be adjusted depending on the thickness and cut of steak.
Step 4: Keep watch. Steaks often have fat, and Fuego Diablo Premium Steaks have a high degree of marbling so they can be prone to flare ups. You don’t want to over cook or burn your steak so stick close to the BBQ.
Step 5: Check the temp, let stand and enjoy. Ensure your steak is cooked to the proper temperature for your level of doneness. Let stand on a plate for a couple of minutes then serve with your favourite side dishes.
