Ok…I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Cooking the perfect steak on the grill is easy if you follow a few simple rules, and I'm going to walk you through them all. So go ahead and grab your spatula and we will get cooking. It's time to eat. We hope that you love this How to Grill the Perfect Steak post.
First and foremost, you have to remember that the perfect grilled steak starts with choosing the a beef cut that is suitable for grilling. As a general rule, the leaner cuts should not touch a grill, nor should the muscles of the animal that do the heavy lifting. Those cuts are better when braised low and slow in some sort of liquid. Any “how to grill the perfect steak” that recommends brisket for example should be questioned. That's a great braising cut, but a horrible grilling choice.
No. What we want are tender cuts that contain fat in the form of marbling. Marbling looks like white thin lines of fat that run through the steak. We want muscles that were worked LESS on average, not more. So what do you ask for when you are standing in front of the butcher?
Sirloin, ribeye, striploin, porterhouse, and tenderloin are all great choices (my personal favorite is the ribeye). Of those cuts, sirloin is likely the cheapest, but it can at times be a bit chewy. Ribeye and striploin offer good marbling, and they cook up tender and flavorful. The tenderloin is actually pretty lean, but it's a muscle that doesn't see much work, so it is incredibly tender. Finally, the porterhouse offers the best of both worlds, as one side of the steak is tenderloin and the other side striploin. Now pick your steak, we are ready to cook!

I’d never really mastered steak until now. The only thing I couldn’t do until now. This link is Amazing. It was better than most restaurants I’ve been to, maybe all of them. I will be repeating this. Thanks
Do you really let steaks rest for 15 min before carving / eating? Seems they would be cold for sure??
My experience has been 5 minute rest is adequate. I hate cold steak. Tent it when you bring it off the grill.
