Grilled Steak with a Browned Butter Sauce

When you baste your steak on the grill, it’s common for the wet ingredients to run over the steaks and through the grill plates. But with this recipe, that’s not a problem. By searing the steaks in a skillet, you can easily keep all of the delicious browned butter surrounding your steak in one place.

Mastering the Grill

Now, let’s talk about how to cook steak on the grill like a pro:

  • Set up the grill at least 15 minutes before you start grilling, using clean grill plates to prevent sticking.
  • Preheat the grill or barbecue to at least 450°F (230°C) for a good sear and crispy edges.
  • Lightly oil the grill plates with a folded paper towel dipped in oil.
  • Pat your steaks dry and let them sit at room temperature for 15 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, and any other desired spices.
  • Flip the steaks with tongs instead of a barbecue fork to preserve the juices.
  • Drizzle the steaks with a little browned butter for that extra burst of flavor.

The Art of Browning Butter

Browned butter is a secret ingredient that enhances the taste of pretty much anything. It’s incredibly easy to make:

  • Melt butter in a pot over medium-high heat directly on your grill plates.
  • Continuously mix the butter with a wooden spoon while swirling the pan to avoid splattering.
  • Once the foam settles down, let the butter cook until it turns into a rich golden brown color.

After drizzling your steaks with browned butter, let them rest for a good 5 minutes to let the juices settle.

Perfectly Cooked Steak

Knowing if your steak is cooked to perfection is crucial. Here’s a quick guide:

  • Rare steaks are soft and maintain an indent when pressed – internal temperature of 140°F (60°C).
  • Medium-rare steaks have a soft and springy feel – internal temperature of 145°F (63°C).
  • Medium steaks bounce back up quickly when pressed – internal temperature of 160°F (70°C).
  • Well-done steaks are firm – internal temperature of 170°F (76°C).

It’s a good idea to remove the steaks from the grill when they are around 5°F below your desired doneness, as they will continue to cook while resting.
