When you ask someone what they would like to have grilled, I bet the No. 1 answer will be a steak, so let’s talk about it! We’re not lusting for just any kind of steak; we want one coming off the grill that’s dripping and oozing with flavor and deliciousness. That vision is a USDA Prime DLM Ribeye Steak, a true DLM Difference.
Hold off on the fancy sauces and compound butter. If you buy a high-quality steak, you want to taste the amazing flavor of the beef. By combining well-marbled Prime Beef, salt, fire, and a few simple rules, you will be the perfect grill sergeant.
Watch the below DLM Difference spotlight or keep reading for tips from the experts on how to grill like the best!
1. Source quality beef and the right cut, like our USDA Prime DLM Ribeye Steak. Talk to us for more options.
2. Brush with olive oil and season liberally with Kosher salt or a coarse sea salt. Let the beef warm up and absorb the salt before grilling. You’ll love the soft, crunchy Maldon Sea Salt Flakes that literally melt into the steak!
3. Steaks are made for fire! We’re talking serious hot heat to get that caramelization of the meat and that rich, complex flavor. We eat with our eyes, so sear for two minutes and then rotate the steak 45 degrees and sear for another two minutes to get the perfect grill marks. Flip the steak with tongs and repeat the process on the other side. Then move the steak to the indirect or low heat side of the grill to finish cooking.
4. Use a meat thermometer to get the right internal temperature (to start, 120-125°F for a rare steak). Pull the steak and let it rest for 10 minutes to re-absorb the juices. Pay attention to your cooking … timing is everything.
