Easy Summer Grilling Recipes

Flecks of flavor

Marbling, the little white flecks within beef, assures tenderness and juiciness – not to mention flavor factor! Look for lots of little bits scattered evenly throughout the steak. As it cooks, those morsels melt and effectively “baste” the meat from the inside out.

Marbling is the most important factor that sets the Certified Angus Beef ® brand apart.

5 Easy Grilling Tips

1. Season steaks simply
The best steaks for grilling don’t need heavy seasoning to taste great. When cooking a richly-marbled Certified Angus Beef ® brand steak, salt and pepper enhances natural flavor.

2. Heat things up early
Always start with a preheated grill (about 500 - 550°F). When the steaks go on, they should sizzle. Searing meat on a hot grill enhances flavor and aroma. After searing both sides, lower heat to finish cooking.

3. Patience makes perfect
During grilling, don’t flip steaks too often. Place them on the grill, and let them sear and cook before turning them. Moving meat frequently makes it lose its natural juices too quickly and dry out.

4. Forsake the fork
Always use tongs or a spatula – not a fork – to turn steaks. Piercing beef while cooking causes the flavorful juices to escape.

5. A great steak, rest assured
After steaks are finished cooking, remove from the grill and place on a clean plate. Allow to rest about 5 minutes to redistribute the juices.
