ANDY'S GRILLING TIPS
Make sure your steak is room temperature; this will produce a more evenly cooked piece of meat.
Give your grill plenty of time to preheat.
Big, thick steaks need a lot of seasoning, so be sure to cover them liberally with salt, pepper and any rubs before grilling.
Don’t pierce your meat with a fork. The juices will escape, making the meat drier and less tasty. Use a tong to move and flip your food.
After removing your meat from the grill, let it rest for a few minutes. Always slice against the grain (against the direction that the muscle fibers run). Don't cut into it until you are ready to serve and eat.
Depending on thickness, usually 5-8 minutes
1" Thick Steaks, 7-10 Minutes a Side
Stuck in a topping rut? Andy suggests jazzing up your burger with these unconventional toppings!
Top it Off!
BBQ SAUCE & BLUE CHEESE
BBQ flavor at its best! Think your favorite basket of BBQ wings meets grilled burger.
PROVOLONE & PASTA SAUCE
Mangia! It's an Italian spin on an old favorite. Toast the bun and add a bit of garlic butter for bonus points!
TAPENADE & FETA
Fans of the salty flavor of a good gyro will love this combo! Best served on a juicy beef patty with a slight char.
PINEAPPLE & TERIYAKI SAUCE
A slice of caramelized, grilled or fresh pineapple adds a nice hit of sweet that offsets salty meat.
