Ok, so… I don’t want to brag, but this is seriously in my top 5 best steaks I’ve ever eaten. Ever. And I made it!!!
I recently read this really entertaining but also really helpful article/tips on grilling steaks.
My family is full of steak lovers so I’ve eaten A LOT of steaks in my life, whether at restaurants or homemade. Ribeye, porterhouse, filet, peppersteak…. what have you.
I’ve grilled many a steak myself in my day… but this…. THIS!?
So after reading the helpful hints, I did things a bit differently.
I bought this filet for only $10 (for 2 filets) from Vons (or Safeway, depending on where you live).
I set the steaks out on the counter to bring them to room temperature. In the mean time, I boiled water for the potatoes.
Next, I salted the steak. The helpful “man” tips also gave a great course on salt - what to use (sea salt, kosher salt, NOT flake salt).
I let it sit for a bit until it looked like the salt was getting absorbed, then I flipped it and salted the other side.
After that, the family staples to any meal: garlic powder, garlic pepper.
I let sit a bit more then threw them on the grill.
I could not have anticipated such a delicious steak! I really blew myself away with this one. It was moist, flavorful, and not in the least bit tough.
Now I’m curious as to whether my method worked out fabulously or if I just happened to buy phenomenal steaks!
