How to BBQ steak like pro
Some like it rare while others prefer it almost charcoal. Whichever way you like your steak, here are a few simple tips to ensure it is as perfect as possible.
1. Bring steaks out of the fridge at least 10 minutes before cooking. This allows the temperature to rise so the meat doesn’t seize when it hits the hot pan, which can make it tough.
2. Preheat a barbecue or chargrill over medium-high heat until very hot (steaks should sizzle as soon as they hit the pan). Lightly spray steaks with oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook, turning once only, until cooked to your liking.
3. Transfer steaks to a plate and loosely cover with foil. Set aside for 5-10 minutes to rest (this helps the steak reabsorb the juices and keeps it moist).
