how to bbq a steak

Barbecuing the perfect steak is a combination of choosing the right cut of meat, preparing it with seasoning or salt and pepper, and searing or flame grilling it to your desired level of doneness. Here are some general tips to get you started:

  1. Choose the right cut of steak: Look for a high-quality cut of steak that is thick cut, such as ribeye, sirloin, or eye fillet. The thicker the steak, the easier it is to get a nice crust on the outside without overcooking the inside.

  2. Prepare the steak: Remove the steak from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before barbecuing to bring it to room temperature. Season the steak generously with salt and pepper or your favourite barbeque rub, and add any additional spices or marinade you prefer.Steak cooking

  3. Preheating the BBQ: Preheat your barbeque to high heat. Make sure your flat hotplate or grill grates are clean and lightly oiled to prevent sticking.

  4. Grill or sear the steak: Place the steak on the grill and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side for medium-rare (or adjust the time for your desired level of doneness). Use tongs to flip the steak, not a fork, as piercing the meat can cause it to lose its juices.

  5. Rest the steak: Once the steak is cooked to your liking, remove it from the BBQ and let it rest for 5–10 minutes. This allows the juices to tenderise the steak and ensure a juicy, mouthwatering result.

  6. Serve : Slice the steak against the grain and serve it with your favourite sides or sauces.

Remember, BBQing a perfect steak takes practise and experimentation. Adjust cooking times and techniques based on your barbeque, the cut of meat, and personal preferences.
