How To Keep Steak From Sticking To Your Grill, According To LongHorn Steakhouse
By Kimberley Laws
Grilling a steak to perfection takes practice and involves mastering some essential tricks. Thankfully, the folks at LongHorn Steakhouse have been willing to share some of their trade secrets, better enabling you to become the go-to grillmaster at your next neighborhood BBQ.
There's nothing more frustrating than tossing an expensive cut of steak onto the grill and watching it glue itself to the grates, so according to LongHorn Steakhouse, this can be avoided by oiling your grill. Start by brushing the grates and seasoning them with canola oil, then dip a clean rag into the oil, using tongs to glide it along the grates while the grill gets hot.
Once your grill is seasoned, it's important to ensure it's sufficiently hot (550 degrees is best for charcoal, and for propane barbecue, leave it on for about 10 minutes) before you start cooking your steak; otherwise, it will stick. Thankfully, these steps are relatively easy and much more straightforward than prying a stubborn porterhouse from the unforgiving grates.
