We are sharing Grilling tips on this week's "Dinner Tonight." Watch some simple steps to an amazing dinner for your family.
Take the beef out of the refrigerator about an hour beore cooking and leave it on the counter to warm up a bit. Drizzle about a teaspoon of olive oil on each side of the steak and rub in with your fingers. Sprinkle the standard steak seasoning mix all over the meat.
If using a gas grill, turn on the burners to HIGH heat and let it get hot for about 8 minutes. Place your steaks on the grill, immediately turn the burners down to LOW and close the lid. You'll hear the wonderful sizzling sound. Observe for a few minutes to make sure your fire isn't burning the meat. For a 12-ounce cut, let it cook for about 5-6 minutes. Open the lid and using tongs, turn the steaks over and immediately close the lid again. Cook for another 4 minutes or so. Try and keep the lid closed for the duration.
Test for doneness using a knife or fork. Remove the steaks when there's a nice pink center, knowing the meat will continue to cook for a few minutes after removing from the grill. Take the steaks inside and let them sit for 5 minutes to allow the juices time to enhance the meat.
If using charcoal or wood for cooking, try the 4-second rule from the Texas Beef Council. Place your hand 4 inches over the grill. If you can leave your hand there for 4 seconds, your fire is the right temperature. Grill away and enjoy!
