How to Grill a Steak for Dad on Father's DayOle & Shaina Olmanson
Father’s Day is here, so it’s time to treat Dad to a day off from the normal toil of his daily routine. Every guy is different, but chances are good that Dad would really enjoy a juicy steak hot off the grill, and chances are equally good that he is usually the person who cooks the steaks. Now it’s your turn to grill for Dad on Father’s Day, and there’s nothing to be intimidated by. Follow these simple tips for a perfect steak, every time.
The Grill 1 of 41. Get the grill hot. Temps around 500-600 degrees are ideal to start a steak.
Searing 2 of 42. Sear both sides. Place the steak on the grill and season with salt and pepper. Allow it to sear for about 2-3 minutes and flip. Season and sear for another 2-3 minutes.
Move the Steak Around 3 of 43. Move it. After the sear, flip the steak to a cooler part of the grill and give it another few minutes on each side, seasoning in between flips.
Before You Eat 4 of 44. Let it rest. Once you've reached desired doneness*, remove the steak to a foil lined plate and wrap it loosely for about 5 minutes before serving. This lets the juices redistribute. * Determine doneness with an accurate meat thermometer. Rare: 125° Medium-rare: 130-135° Medium: 140-145° Medium-well: 150-155° Well-done: 160°
Add a fresh salad and a baked potato or garlic bread to complete the meal, and you’ll have Dad worried that he might be replaced as the grillmaster of the house. A huge Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers out there!
