How to Grill the Perfect Steak

Matt was convinced that he has mastered grilling the perfect steak. We got some ribeye steaks from our good friends at Jones Creek Beef. Best meat you will ever eat! I just came up with that, I should be on their advertising team! Anyways, my hubby believes that when I marinade the steaks it takes away from the flavor so last time he took charge.


He rubbed the steaks with 1 tablespoon of Olive oil and then he seasoned it with a teaspoon of salt and pepper. Then he put a little olive oil on the grill. He claims anything more cooked than medium rare is just ruined. I like medium, but I don’t mind medium rare.

Then he placed the steaks on the grill for 4 to 5 minutes. The steaks will be golden brown and slightly charred (that’s my favorite part). Then you flip them over for about 4 to 5 minutes more. The internal temperature for a medium rare steak should be around 135 degrees Fahrenheit. Cook the meat for about  2 more minutes if you want the steak to be medium. Let the steak rest for about 2 to 3 minutes before cutting into it. That’s how we got the perfect steak!

We had a ton of leftovers and used the leftover meat for breakfast burritos. Which I forgot to take a picture of, but they were fantastic. Matt put some eggs mixed with about a teaspoon of salsa and cooked them up. When they were about done he threw in the meat to heat it up and then wrapped it in a tortilla and sprinkled some cheddar and top! It was so stinking good, we had it 3 days in a row.
