Grilled Steak Perfection! Grilled steak with herb seasoning. Healthy and clean!

Grilled Steak Perfection

By on July 9, 2016

You have fired up the grill and purchased beautiful steaks.  Do they fit into a healthy menu? How do you grill the perfect steak?  Grilled steak actually does fit in a healthy, clean eating meal plan. Just be mindful of your portion!  And there is nothing better than a perfectly grilled steak! Steaks on the grill are a grill lover’s master piece!  So how do you grill a steak to perfection?  Follow these simple rules and you will succeed!

Choose a good steak – Don’t skimp here – choose the best steak you can afford.  A well marbled steak is perfect! They should also be 1 ¼ inch thick to 2 inch thick (I prefer no thicker that 1 ½ inch). Some good choices include:

  • New York Strip Steak
  • Rib Eye Steak
  • Porterhouse
  • T-bone
  • Filet Mignon
  • Flank or Skirt Steak – Cook medium rare; slice against the grain.

Pre-Heat your Grill – Pre-heat your grill on high! Turn down one side to medium before grilling.Herb Seasoning for perfectly grilled steak!

Season your steak – Generously season your steak on both sides before grilling.

Avoid Cross-Contamination – Use one tong and plate to carry raw food to the grill and use a different plate and serving tool to bring and serve the cooked steak to the table.

Turn your steak at the right time – Flip your steaks when you see tiny beads of blood beginning to form on the top, approximately 4-6 minutes for a 1″ steak or 8-10 minutes for a 2″ steak. Use tongs to flip your steak as using a fork causes the all the flavorful juices to escape!

Don’t Desert Your Steaks – Stay close to the grill and keep a close watch on those babies! Put out flare ups with a spray bottle to prevent excessive charring and burning.

Remove steaks from the grill with tongs – Let them rest on a platter or cutting board under an aluminum foil tent for 5 – 10 minutes!Grilled Steak Perfection! Clean and healthy!

Hi! This is Donna. I am a grandmother, mom, wife, and a teacher. I also love cookbooks, love to bake and really enjoy food! At age 56 I have developed a love of fitness after losing 46 pounds on the 21 Day Fix! I have always struggled with my weight! When menopause struck and things got totally out of control... My weight only went up not down. My muffin top turned into a bakery shelf. I desperately wanted to lose weight and improve my health. I wanted to be able to play and keep up with my beautiful grandchildren. Nothing I tried worked until I found the 21 Day Fix. Now instead of a tight size 16 I wear a comfortable 8 and even some 6's! At age 56 I am in the best shape of my life. My current goals are to improve my strength and to continue toning my body. I along with my daughter, Danielle, am here to help you reach your own fitness goals! You are never too young or old to become fitter, healthier, and stronger!
