FINALLY, grilling season is upon us! It's time to break out your favorite grilling tools and deep clean your grill. There's nothing better than a juicy steak, fresh off the grill, but what is the best steak for grilling?
Best Steak for Grilling
Think back to last summer, sitting outside catching up with friends, and a waft of that signature scent of delicious beefy air. Truly, what signifies summer without grilling? Finding the best steak to grill is pretty easy for Pre. Pre knows a thing or two about grass-fed beef. We've been at the top of the grass-fed beef game for years. From pasture to package to the plate, we consistently source only grass-fed & finished beef that has been raised and finished without the addition of hormones, antibiotics, or GMOs which makes our steak perfect for grilling.
The best steaks for grilling are Pre's New York Strip and Ribeye. It all comes down to what kind of eating experience you want to have. Keep reading to see why these cuts are the best steaks for grilling!
New York Strip Steak
One of our absolute favorite steaks to grill is the New York Strip steak. The signature fat cap on the New York Strip gives this cut the mouth-watering flavor you want when grilling a steak. You can use a rub on it or add it to a salad, but the New York Strip shines on its own. All you need when grilling it is some high-heat oil and some salt!
Ribeye steaks are full of flavor and have a lot of marbling, making this steak cut perfect for grilling. The ribeye comes from the front end of the M. longissimus dorsi – two tender muscles that run along the back. Like the New York Strip steak, this cut does not need more than salt, and high heat to make it a perfect steak for grilling.
How to Grill Steak
Once the outside of your steak is seared, it's safe to eat. For beginners, we suggest cooking the steak for about 4 minutes on each side or until it has browned. Place on a cutting board and cut into strips. Then, lay those strips back on the grill so you can see the color of the inside as it cooks to the desired doneness. Use our handy cooking chart to get the exact time and temperature for each cut of steak, but keep in mind if your grill is piping hot, there might need to be some minor adjustments on your part, so keep an eye on it.
