Making dinner alfresco can be very enjoyable! We love to cook, but when it comes to grilling steaks, only my husband does it best! He has it down to a science (so he thinks). When he grills, he gets it right - no matter the size of the steak. He can grill a London Broil Beef Steak to perfection!
Here are some of his tips on how!
It's important that you allow the meat to warm up to room temperature, at least one hour before you cook it. It is equally important to heat your grill until it's extremely hot. The thickness the steak should be a good cut, about two inches thick. The outside will be charred, but the inside will be very tender and juicy.
Serve a great steak with a simple tomato salad and some bread and its DIVINE! Pair with a deep red velvety Chianti Riserva, Monte Maria for an exquisite dinner with family and friends. Enjoy!
