Grilling Tips: How to Grill a Great Steak

Below are a few tricks of the trade from chefs at LongHorn Steakhouse® to help you grill the perfect steak indoors this winter.

Selecting Your Steak

When selecting a steak, remember three things: cut, marbling and freshness.

  • Marbling is the whiteness that runs through the steak and makes it juicy.
  • Filets, sirloins and ribeyes are three common cuts you can find at your local grocer - Filets are lean and tender. They have a buttery texture and subtle flavor. Sirloins are also a tender cut and are very juicy. Bone-in Ribeye has the most marbling – and is the juiciest and most flavorful steak.
  • Fresh steak is always best because it guarantees the meat will be tender and juicy.

Seasoning Your Steak

  • Seasoning helps accentuates the flavor of the meat and can add another layer of taste to the meal.
  • For steaks, LongHorn has three secret, signature dry seasonings, but similar flavors can be achieved at home.
  • Combine salt, fresh cracked pepper, granulated onion powder and granulated garlic powder and mix it together. Adjust the seasonings as needed.
  • Don’t be shy when seasoning. Season the steak boldly. Sprinkle and rub the seasoning on both sides of the meat, making sure it’s coated.

Grilling Your Steak

  • LongHorn uses two types of grills – a char-grill and a flat-top grill.
  • The flat-top grill has a similar surface to a sauté pan found in a home kitchen, which can be used to grill indoors.
  • If you’d like to get some grill marks on your steak, you can also use a grill pan.
  • Make sure the pan surface is very hot and add a tablespoon canola oil.
  • Place the steak in the center of the pan and turn the steak consistently every 3-4 minutes to ensure both sides get equal heat.
  • For the LongHorn Steakhouse experience at home, pair your perfectly grilled steak with a delicious side dish, like a sweet potato, fresh vegetables or macaroni and cheese.
