Everyday Recipe for the Juiciest Steak

By Sarah LeVesque, Recent Arizona State University Nutrition Student 

What you will need:

2 steaks of your choice. For my recipe, I chose to cook two filet mignons.

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons garlic (minced)

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

Salt and pepper (I like to use a seasoned salt)

Steps to a great steak:

  1. Before I turn on the grill, I take the filets out of the package and put them on a plate.
  2. Lightly cover each steak with olive oil.
  3. Smother each steak with garlic and make sure you have rubbed in it well.
  4. Then sprinkle some salt and pepper on each side
  5. Lightly coat each side of the steaks with Worcestershire sauce, cover, and put in the fridge.
  6. Preheat the grill while the steaks are marinating in the fridge.
  7. Allow the grill to heat up to about 400°F, and put the steaks on about 7 minutes after it was turned on.
  8. Place the steaks in the center of the grill, and close the lid.
  9. Let one side of the steaks lightly char.
  10. After about 8 minutes, lower the heat down, flip the steaks, and close the lid.
  11. Depending on how you like your steaks cooked and how thick the cuts are, the cook time will vary.

Tips and tricks:

  • You can use a thermometer to help indicate when to remove the steaks from the grill.
  • Rare pieces will reach an internal temperature of 130-135°F
  • Medium rare will reach 140°F
  • Medium is 155°F
  • Well done is 165°F
  • Once the steaks reach that temperature is when you’ll remove them from the grill.
