The complete guide to making grilled entrecote steak. How long should the steak be put on the fire? How many minutes should a medium steak be cooked compared to a medium rare or well? And what is the recommended recipe?

There is nothing meat-eaters love more than an entrecote steak on the fire. In order for it to taste amazing, you need to know how to prepare it accurately. For a good steak it is not possible to use a disposable barbecue. A professional barbecue is needed. It needs to produce a constant temperature and can’t leave a bad taste on the meat. Before the steaks are on the fire, it is important to oil the grill to the point where you smell the onion. Additionally, the meat must be fresh and marbled with clear fat and meat areas.

Basic preparation method:

Recommended size: 250-350 grams per steak

Cook one side of the steak on the grill for five to eight minutes depending on the type of steak requested. At this point, season with salt and pepper and leave the steak on the grill to soak up the salt and pepper. Only once it has soaked up the salt and pepper, turn the steak to the other side and do the same.

The simplest method of making entrecote on the fire

Preheat the grill and then place the steaks on the grill. Cook each steak  for 4 to 5 minutes, or until it gets a golden and slightly charred color. Then turn the steaks and continue to roast for 3 to 5 minutes. This is for those who like to eat the steak in a reddish-pink color, “Medium Rare”. (Internal temperature of 135 degrees Celsius), 5 to 7 minutes for medium (140 degrees Celsius) or 8 to 10 minutes for medium-well (150 degrees Celsius).

It is important to pay attention where you are serving the steak after taking it off the grill. It is best to put it into dishes that retain heat and juiciness. A dry and cold steak can be one of the most disappointing things about eating a steak.

A spice mixture is recommended for grilled entrecote steak

Coarse salt, brown sugar, cumin, ground black pepper (those who like spicy can add chili). Arrange the ratio of spices to taste and then brush the steaks with olive oil and spread in the mixture until the spices are absorbed into the meat. Let the steaks rest for at least 30 minutes before grilling.
