How to Make Perfectly Grilled Marinated Steak
- For London broil. Poke steak on both sides liberally with a fork piercing the meat before marinating.
- For Sirloin steak and steak tips. You may pierce meat slightly with fork. It is not nessasary.
- Slice large onion in half after peeling. Slice in to half inch slices. Heat nonstick pan spray liberally with butter flavor spray, or you may use olive oil. I made this recipe carb free and lower fat for myself. Place onions in pan. Fry tossing constantly with a spatula over high heat . Turn down a to medium high. Continue stirring and tossing the onions until nicely golden brown. Stir in a quarter cup of water. Continue to cook until water evaporates remove from pan into a bowl. Cover bowl and set-aside.
- Cooking tip for desired doneness.
This is based on a 1 inch thick steak. Cook on both sides for approximately one minute for a medium rare steak. The grill must be piping hot in order to do this. Temperature should be over 500°. Grills may vary. Please adjust timing if your grill does not reach that temperature. For instance. My grill reaches 600°
A good way to check for doneness. Before placing steak on grill get a feel of steak. A raw steak feels kind of squishy. The longer it cooks the the less squishy it will feel. A well-done steak will feel very dense and firm. A medium will feel in between dense and squishy
For the most tender meat I suggest cooking your steak medium rare to medium. ( london btoil I always cook medium rare. Anything over that will make the steak tougher.
You may also use a meat thermometer to check for doneness.
