TRI-COUNTY TIPS 215.396.3303 |

Grill the Perfect Steak There’s nothing quite like a good, juicy steak cooked on a grill. The filet mignon is from the center of the beef tenderloin that has outstanding taste, as well as texture. The top sirloin is a juicy, tender cut taken from the center of the sirloin. The T-bone is both a strip sirloin and a filet mignon. The New York strip is an excellent cut for grilling and many experts refer to it as the ultimate steak for cooking out. The ribeye has marbling throughout the meat, making it one of the juiciest and most tender cuts. Many people like to marinate but I prefer to use a rub on grilled steaks. Mix together one tablespoon of • • • • • • • • • •


chili powder onion powder garlic powder cumin cracked black pepper white pepper kosher salt plus 2 teaspoons of oregano 1 teaspoon of coriander 1 ⁄ 2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper

and rub it on about an hour before grilling. Be sure to rub the mixture into the cut of meat; don’t just dab it across the top. Coat your grill with nonstick kitchen spray before you begin, so as to keep your steaks from sticking to the grill. Preheat your grill to around 550ºF. Trim any excess fat from the side of the cut to prevent fl are-ups and curling when grilling. You should only turn your steaks once on the grill to prevent drying. How long you cook a steak depends on how well you want it cooked. If you want the steak rare, the temperature should be no more than 150º. If you want it medium, the temperature should be no more than 160º. If you want it well done, you should have a temperature of at least 170º. After grilling a steak, allow it to sit for five minutes tented with Aluminum foil before serving to let the juices settle. Buon Appetito! 6
