The Perfect Grilled Steak

Wegmens Food Markets is back at it with another great video installment. They couldn’t have picked any better cuts: tenderloin, strip, ribeye, flank and my personal favorite – tri-tip.

There’s a couple great tips in the video, but I’d like to mention a couple more that I think should definitely be covered.

1. Make sure you let your steaks reach room temperature before putting them on the grill. A cold slab of meat will seize up when it hits the grill and you’ll lose out on tenderness.

2. When you salt and pepper your protien, be patient, wait for that salt to melt and desolve itself into the meat. Trust me, you’ll notice a huge difference. That salt will begin to penetrate, work on drawing those natural juices toward the edges and work its magic.

I’ve also learned that Wegmens sure does love their basting oil!

    That makes my mouth water.. but what is basting oil & where do you get it?

      Sorry for the delay in responding. Basting oil is typically nothing more than olive oil or vegetable oil infused with different herbs, spices and seasonings. It’s super easy to make your own, but different places sell their own blends. Infuse your own olive oil with chopped raw garlic, red pepper flake, oregano, thyme and rosemary, it’s tasty!
