How to Cook a Steak on a Gas Grill
Choosing the right steak to cook
When you are grilling steak, go for a juicy and meaty steak that will have a lot of marbling in it. A steak with a lot of marbling is not the best for your diet but it is definitely all right if you indulge in red meat only on some occasions. The tips in this article will also work for leaner cut steaks although a steak that is about 1 inch to 1.5 inches thick will be most ideal. Use only salt and pepper and maybe some mustard to season the steak. Keep the seasoning aspect of cooking the steak very simple.
Trim the stake if necessary
While it is great to have a juicy steak on the gas grill, it is also important to remember that you do not want to go completely overboard with a really thick steak that will not cook well on a gas grill. If the thickest part of the steak is thicker than 1.5 inches, you want to trim it down a little.
Scoring the meat
This is where you make some small cuts or scores into the meat, especially in the fatty areas. This is done to allow the steak to cook evenly. The fat in a steak cooks quicker than the rest of the meat and scoring will allow it to cook more evenly.
Preheating and preparing the grill
Gas grills do not get as hot as charcoal grills and it is very important that you allow it to pre heat at the maximum setting. Once that is done, you can use a brush to lightly coat the grill with some oil if you choose to.
Cooking the steak
Choose a hot spot on the grill that is away from the source of heat. If you cook directly over the hot plates, the dripping fat from the steak will cause flames that will lick the meat and dilute the grilling flavor. You must cook the steak for the following times.
For a 1 inch steak, you want to cook each side for about 4-5 minutes if you want it rare. For medium, it will be about 6-7 minutes on each side. For a well done steak, you will need to cook it for about 8-10 minutes on each side. Do not flip the steak over constantly. You only want to use the times above and flip it just once if you want the best results.
Serving the steak
Allow the cooked steak to sit for above 5 minutes before you serve it as it will allow the juices to spread out evenly in the steak.
