A step-by-step tutorial on how to grill the perfect steak every time!


  • (2)  1inch thick ribeye steaks
  • Salt
  • Ground black pepper
  • A LP gas grill


  1. Clean grill and turn temperature up to 450-500 degrees.
  2. Let steaks come to room temperature.
  3. Pierce repeatedly all over with fork on both sides.
  4. Sprinkle salt and pepper over both sides.
  5. Place steaks directly over heat, close grill and drop temperature down to 400.
  6. Let steaks cook for 2 minutes.
  7. Rotate steaks 90 degrees and move to indirect heat if steak is very fatty. If not having flare-up issues, it can stay on direct. You can always move to indirect at a later time if need be.
  8. Let cook 2 more minutes.
  9. Flip steaks over and let cook 3 minutes.
  10. Then check steaks for temperature reading. (Medium -rare will most likely be taken off at this point).
  11. If haven’t reached desired temperature, let cook an additional 1 minute.
  12. Remove from grill and let rest for 4 minutes.
