Cooking out isn’t just a summer thing. Fall is a great time to fire up the grill, too. Because whether you’re tailgating before a big game, or just hangin’ out in the backyard, nothing goes better with brisk autumn weather than a big juicy steak. And while it’s hard to match the ridiculous deliciousness of a steak ordered off the Texas Roadhouse menu
, these tips from our chefs will help you cook up the best steak
you’ve ever made.
1. Be Picky
If you want to cook great tasting steak, start with high quality meet. Always get the top grade you can afford, and make sure the meat is bright red. Also, set yourself up for success by choosing a cut of meat that is tender and juicy. New York Strip, Porterhouse, and Ribeye steaks are all perfect for grilling out.
2. Use Texas Roadhouse Steak Seasoning
Okay, this is kind of cheating a little. But don’t worry, we’ll never tell. Before throwing your steak on the grill, coat each side with our award-winning Texas Roadhouse Steak seasoning
. 3. Bring the Heat
When we say fire up the grill, we mean it. Hot n’ fast is the secret to grilling great steak, whether you like it rare, medium, well done or anything in between. Just make sure your grill is well oiled, so the meat doesn’t stick.
4. Give It a Rest
After you take the steak off the grill, let it sit for a few minutes before you serve it. This not only allows the steak to cool a bit, it also allows the juices to settle evenly throughout the meat.
With these tips from our chefs and a little practice, you’ll be cooking up steaks that’ll rival what you’ll find on most steakhouse
and dinner restaurant menus. The Texas Roadhouse chefs also have tips for cooking the best ribs, too. But that’s another blog.
