Everyone with a grill should know how to cook the perfect steak. This article will ensure that you can cook the perfect steak using our Infrared SIZZLE ZONE™ to achieve restaurant quality results.
The perfect steak starts with the perfect cut. Look for meat with a marbled fat distribution and at least 1-inch thick. The fat acts as a natural tenderizer while cooking and will keep the meat moist and juicy. Preheat your grill with lid closed for 5-10 minutes. Place your steak using the Infrared SIZZLE ZONE™ for approximately 2 minutes on each side; this will sear the outside giving you beautiful grill marks and a crispy crust. It will also give you the perfect rare steak. You can stop here, and just rest the steak for 5 to 10 minutes before serving or keep cooking. To cook a perfect steak to medium-rare / medium doneness, move your steak over to the main grill and cook the steak with the lid down for 4 to 7 more minutes using indirect heat. If you wish for a well-done steak, continue cook using indirect heat for approximately 10 to 12 more minutes, however, we do have nine good reasons why you should never cook your steak past medium.
