Cuisine: Steak
Servings: 1


  • 1 Frozen Steak
  • Salt
  • pepper


  • Start grill and let it get above 500 degrees
  • Salt steak
  • Pepper steak
  • Place steak on 500+ degree grill and close the lid (close the lid after every step of this process)
  • After nice, thick grill marks appear, rotate steak 90 degrees which should take 4-5 minutes depending on the heat of the grill (do not flip, just rotate)
  • Once cross hatch grill marks appear (another 4-5 minutes) flip the steak over and repeat on the other side
  • Once the steak has cross hatch grill marks on both sides, it's rare and can be served
  • Should you want it more done, place the steak on an upper rack or on the side of the grill with no direct heat and close the lid for 4-6 minutes, depending on the size of the steak and heat of the grill, to achieve a medium rare steak.
  • Another 4-6 minutes on the grill, but not over direct heat, and the steak will be medium
  • Another 4-6 for medium well
  • You get the idea
  • Remove from the heat, allow to rest for 2-5 minutes depending on the thickness of the steak and slice
