Cooking Steak on a Foreman Grill

I love cooking on my George Foreman grill and one of the easiest and fastest meals to cook on the grill is a steak. Without much effort I can cook a steak that has flavor and is tender to eat.

Choosing the right steak that includes both the type and the size makes all the difference in the final outcome of the taste. The perfect size for steak is between 1-1/4 inches to 2-1/4 inches. Anything thinner really doesn't grill well and thicker steaks are harder to cook on the Foreman grill. When choosing a steak chose a tender cut the actual act of grilling tends to make the meat dry. Prepping the grill for the steak is easy to do, is an important step in achieving a flavorful steak that is cooked on the Foreman grill.

Plug in the grill; it will immediately start to heat up and an indicator light appears on the top of the unit. After the light goes out the grill has finished heating up and it is ready for the steak. Before placing the steak on the grill spray the top and bottom grill plates with cooking spray. The spray keeps the steak from sticking to the grill plates and adds a little extra flavor with no added calories. To avoid have steak drippings all over your counter don't forget to place the plastic grease tray under the front lip of the grill.

When cooking a steak on a Foreman grill there is no real need to do a lot of seasoning. Keeping the seasoning simple using basics like black pepper, granulated garlic, and coarse salt enhances the flavor while cooking.

Achieving the crosshatch grill mark can also be achieved using the Foreman grill. While this doesn't change the taste of the steak it does give a more attractive appearance of the steak. Place the steak onto the hot grill at about a forty-five degree angle to the bars. Grill for about two minutes then rotate the steak about ninety degrees and finish cooking. The nice thing about the Foreman grill is that there is no flipping or turning the steak. The steak is grilled on both sides at the same time.

After the steak has reached the degree of doneness that is desired, remove the steak from the grill and place it on a platter. Spray just a little bit of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spray onto the steak. This adds just a little bit of flavor without any of the calories. Let the steak sit for a few minutes, but not more than four. Letting the steak sit gives it a chance for some of the juice to settle throughout the steak allowing for more flavor.

Now that the steak is cooked and ready to eat unplug, the grill. Place two or three wet paper towels onto the grill plates and close the lid. When finished eating, the grill is ready to be cleaned without any fuss.
