As steak lovers, we all know that T-bone steak is a classic cut that never disappoints. It's a beautiful balance of tender fillet and flavorful sirloin, all on one bone. Grilling a perfect T-bone steak requires some knowledge and technique, but it's definitely worth the effort. In this blog post, we'll share some tips and tricks to help you grill a perfectly cooked T-bone steak.
Choosing the Right Steak
When it comes to choosing a T-bone steak, quality is key. At Wellbone, we recommend choosing a steak that's at least 1 inch thick and has good marbling throughout. Look for steak with a bright red color and creamy white fat. The bone should be clean and without any browning or odor.
Preparing the Steak
To achieve the perfect T-bone steak, you need to prepare it well. Take the steak out of the fridge and let it sit at room temperature for 30-60 minutes before cooking. This will allow the steak to cook more evenly.
Seasoning the Steak
Seasoning your steak is important for adding flavor. At Wellbone, we recommend using coarse sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. You can also add other spices and herbs if you like, such as garlic powder, thyme, or rosemary. Rub the seasoning onto both sides of the steak, and let it sit for at least 10 minutes before grilling.
Grilling the Steak
To grill a perfect T-bone steak, you need to know the right grilling techniques. Heat your grill to high heat, and oil the grates with a high-heat oil, such as canola or grapeseed oil. Place the steak on the grill, and cook it for 4-5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Use tongs to flip the steak once, and avoid piercing the steak with a fork, as this will release the juices.
Resting the Steak
Once your steak is cooked to perfection, let it rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing and serving. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat, making it more tender and juicy.
Serving the Steak
A perfectly grilled T-bone steak is a thing of beauty, and it deserves to be served with the right accompaniments. At Wellbone, we recommend serving it with a side of grilled vegetables, a loaded baked potato, or a simple salad. And of course, a glass of red wine or your favorite beverage to wash it all down.
In conclusion, grilling a perfect T-bone steak requires some knowledge and technique, but it's definitely worth the effort. With the right choice of steak, preparation, seasoning, grilling, resting, and serving, you can create a delicious and satisfying meal that will impress your friends and family.
