- Flipping the steaks frequently helps them keep their shape and reduces grill flare-ups.
- If your steaks have an edge of fat on them, make small cuts in the fat before grilling. This prevents them from cupping up in the middle as they cook.
- Allow steaks to rest about 5 minutes before cooking, this ensures the juices are absorbed into the meat. Cut across the grain of the meat so it’s extra tender.
