Cooking The Perfect Steak

May 10, 2012

Temperature, angles, covered/uncovered, seasoned, oiled….there are SO many different elements that go into grilling the perfect steak. Lucky for you, being the meat geniuses that we are, we’ve carefully crafted the exact combination of specifications to yield a perfectly cooked steak.

It’s quite simple, as long as you follow our 6 steps. And it might help to make sure you’re cooking a Meat House steak…in our humble (but completely justified) opinion.

After all, it all starts with a high quality piece of meat…

 Ingredients Needed:

1 raw steak (your favorite cut)

1 pair of tongs (never use a fork!)

1 hot grill (500 degrees Fahrenheit)

Seasoning rub (we suggest Camp Mix)

Your favorite Meat House sides

Truly the first step would be; drive to your local Meat House and pick out your favorite cut of steak (with assistance from your friendly butcher), some awesome sides and a delectable dessert. But really this process can be done to any steak, anywhere in the world and we don’t want to be too limiting, just in case you are stuck oversees somewhere with NO Meat House in sight (the horror!). So here it is folks, the proper process for cooking the perfect steak.

Proper Process for Cooking the Perfect T-bone/Porterhouse/Ribeye

  1. Remove steaks from fridge and allow 30-40 minutes to come to room temperature.
  2. Pre-heat your grill to 500°.  Clean surface and lightly oil.
  3. Season both sides with the rub of your choice.  We highly suggest coating your steak in Original Camp Mix.
  4. Place steak on grill for 3 minutes, the ends pointing to 2 and 8 o’clock.  Turn the ends to 5 and 10 o’clock and cook for additional 3 minutes.
  5. Flip your steak over and cook for 3 minutes, the ends pointing to 2 and 8 o’clock.  Turn the ends to 5 and 10 o’clock and cook for additional 3 minutes
  6. Follow the chart below to achieve your desired degree of doneness.

Medium Well

Well Done






And hopefully (assuming no major errors occurred, fingers crossed!) you come to the dinner table with a beautifully charred and perfectly seasoned piece of steak like this one!

If it doesn’t look quite like this, DON’T WORRY, it will still most likely taste amazing and send you running back to The Meat House for more meaty goodness.
