For our very first recipe, we decided to start with the basics:
Marinating & Grilling the perfect steak!


Best for-Ribeye (does not need to marinade), Flank or Skirt steak
Ingredients-olive oil, balsamic vinegar, mustard, fresh herbs, citrus, brown sugar and/or honey, Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper, Adobo seasoning, creole seasoning

 

Marinade-
Whisk together an olive oil base
Adding balsamic vinegar & mustard for a bold flavor!

Finishing with sweetness by adding brown sugar or honey
Marinate in the fridge for a minimum of 30 minutes!
Then remove to chill at room temperature for 30 minutes before grilling
Create your crust-

THICK coding!

 

 

Our Grill Master at Work!


Grilling-
Oil the grill; use tongs to brush clean grates with a high smoke point oil such as canola or peanut oil with a paper towel
Heat grill on high heat until oil smokes
Rub grates one more time creating a slick coating
Use Direct heat (directly over flames)
Temperature; preferably use a thermometer. You want your grill Scorching hot!
Medium rare= 130-135 degrees
Medium= 135-145degrees
Medium well= 145-155 degrees
Keep the grill Scorching hot to deepen the flavor! Do not close lid/cover.
Consider flipping steak once or twice to best flavor containment. However, flipping more crisps the crust more which is also not discouraged. Your steak, do to your preference!
Let rest for a MINIMUM of 10 minutes before slicing! Lightly tent the meat with foil to prevent heat from escaping.
Slice against the grain (grain=appearance of the muscle fiber) cut perpendicular to the grain.
Enjoy your amazing, bold flavored, perfectly cooked steak!
