Normally the preparation time will take 40 to 45 minutes. And the cooking time may vary from 10 to 20 minutes. So, overall it takes some 60 minutes or an hour to serve the hot grilled steaks.
Before You Start:
The first and foremost thing which is very much important is to clean and oil the grills. Clean the grates where you are going to BBQ steak. It will help you to turn them properly and prevent from sticking the grates. You have to heat your grills and scrub them properly with a grill brush. Then take some vegetable oil and brush them lightly on the grates. This will create a non sticky surface for cooking. Then heat it up at a temperature ofÂ 320 degrees celcius (450 degree Fahrenheit). High heat ensures that the crust of the steak is crispy and sear.
Now when it comes to seasoning, you have to keep in mind that you need do this at least 40 minutes before you start grilling. Apply salt at least 40 minutes before you start grilling. The reason is the salt draws the water out from the steak. Sprinkle some pepper on it and rub on both the sides of the steak. Also apply a bit of olive oil which you have to brush out evenly. If you want to make it a bit spicy then add some chilli powder, garlic powder and paprika. Then rub all these properly so that they are evenly spread out on the meat.
Steaks can cook really fast. So, you have to be attentive while you are grilling them. Use a pair of tongs to turn or flip the steaks. Do not use a fork as it can pierce holes into the meat from where all the juices can get released. You will see that the crust is getting crispy and developing a golden brown crust. But make sure to flip often so that the meat is cooked evenly. Once it is done, you have to use a thermometer to see whether it is well done or not. If the thermometer reads 160 degree Fahrenheit then it means â€œwell doneâ€.
So, these are some of the things you need to remember to get the best barbecue steak. Once it reaches the ideal temperature, you have to take the steak out from the grill. And let it rest for some time. Now you can serve them as whole or also cut them into pieces (according to the size you want) and serve them hot and delicious.
