How to Cook Medium-Well Steak

This màn chơi of doneness is for those who don't want a lot of pink in their meat. A medium-well steak should have just a hint of pink in the very middle of the steak with a dark brown surface và good charring on the top & bottom. The steak will be very stiff but still have a little squish in the center. 

For a 1-inch steak, place steak on a hot grill for 7 minutes. Turn and continue grilling for another 5 minutes. Cook to an internal temperature of 155 lớn 165 F (68 khổng lồ 74 C).

How to lớn Cook Steak Well-Done

Well-done steak has gotten a bad rap, with some chefs even refusing khổng lồ cook the meat to lớn this doneness. It may seem well-done would be the easiest to cook, but in actuality, it is the hardest as cooking until the meat is no longer pink & not drying it out is a challenge. The secret is to vị it low & slow—the only way to lớn prevent burning while fully cooking it through the middle. 

This steak should not be burnt on the outside. While there is not the faintest hint of pink in the middle, it should be browned through, not burnt through. This steak will feel solid to lớn the touch.

For a 1-inch steak, grill over medium heat between 10 và 12 minutes per side. It should reach an internal temperature of 170 F (77 C) or higher.

Rest Your Steak

It"s vital that you let the steak rest for at least three minutes after cooking, và not cut into it immediately. Muscle fibers in meat contract and toughen when cooking, pushing the moisture to the surface. (That"s why a pan sizzles, because the juices are being released.) If the steak doesn"t rest, these same juices won"t have time to lớn redistribute throughout the meat & will pool on your plate instead of remaining in the steak, where you want them.

Because the steak will continue khổng lồ cook after it is removed from the grill, you want khổng lồ pull it off when it reaches roughly five degrees under the target temperature. As it rests, it will come up khổng lồ the correct temperature for doneness due to lớn residual heat.While grilling, it's important lớn not only flip the steak but also rotate it và move around the grill a bit. Some parts of the grill heat up more than others, so this movement will assure even cooking.
