Ten Commandments of Steak

Curated By: Jonathan Glass

1. Set The Mood

Create the right mix of setting, mood and ambience for the ultimate steak experience.

2. Select The Steak

Select a steak based on shape, marbling, texture and thickness.

3. Let The Steak Acclimate

Let meat get to room temperature before grilling for an evenly cooked steak.

4. Season The Steak

Use seasonings and sauces to enhance flavors. Season 45 minutes before grilling to allow seasoning to infuse into the meat.

5. Experiment

Bring your own style and flavors to the grilling process. Be bold!

6. Don’t over or under cook your steak

Grill steaks medium rare to medium for the best flavor and texture.

7. Use The Touch Method

Use the “Touch Method” to gauge doneness. Never puncture a steak.

8. Let The Steak Settle

Let meat settle for a few minutes after grilling for more intense flavor.

9. Select Your Sides

Complete the meal with your favorite sides.

10. Use Your Mr. Steak Grill

Use a Mr Steak grill to sear and char like a steakhouse.

Meat Grades: Prime vs Choice

The USDA determines this primarily based on marbling, but there are two factors they use to do this: quality grades for tenderness, juiciness, and flavor; and yield grades for the amount of usable lean meat on the carcass.

Prime:
Prime beef is produced from young, well-fed beef cattle. It has abundant marbling (the amount of fat interspersed with lean meat), and is generally sold in restaurants and hotels. Prime roasts and steaks are excellent for dry-heat cooking such as broiling, roasting, or grilling.

Choice:
Choice beef is high quality but has less marbling than Prime. Choice roasts and steaks from the loin and rib will be very tender, juicy, and flavorful and are suited for dry-heat cooking. Many of the less tender cuts can also be cooked with dry heat if not overcooked. Such cuts will be most tender if braised, roasted or simmered with a small amount of liquid in a tightly covered pan.
