Cook the Perfect Steak


How to cook the perfect steak

Have you ever wondered how the experts make their experts make their steaks taste so good?

A big part of it is choosing the right cuts and the right quality. Certified Angus Beef ® always has lots of delicious marbling, which provides flavor, tenderness and juiciness so you know you are getting the very best at Macey’s with Certified Angus Beef®.

As far as cooking goes, there are a few simple secrets that will help make you the king (or queen!) of the grill!

Follow these easy steps to sizzling success:

S – Start with a hot grill (500-550˚F. is ideal). Searing beef helps lock in its delicious juices.

T – Turn steaks gently with tongs or a spatula; never pierce them with a fork.

E – Ensure juiciness by flipping steaks only once.

A – Assess doneness with an instant-read thermometer.

K – Keep food safety in mind. Thoroughly wash anything that comes in contact with raw meat.

S – Set steaks aside to rest a few minutes before serving, to keep the juices inside.

That’s it – six easy steps to steak perfection!

Happy Shopping® and happy grilling.
