Tips for Grilling Steaks

Share article Tips for Grilling Steaks on:
FacebookTwitterPinterestPrint

Tips for Grilling SteaksWhether it’s the ultimate burger or the perfect steak, these tips from our experts in the Butcher Shop, will help ensure you wow friends and family, every time.

Tip 1. Starting

Before you heat up the grill, remove the meat from the fridge 20–60 minutes before cooking, this allows heat to evenly transfer throughout the meat while its cooking. Skipping this step means your meat will cook unevenly.

Tip 2. Seasoning

Naturally, personal tastes differ, but if you’re in doubt, going simple allows the meat to shine. Try seasoning both sides with freshly ground black pepper and coarse-grain Kosher or sea salt. A coarse salt will give you that bright salt crunch and flavor enhancement without too much sodium.

Tip 3. Searing

Searing the meat first—on high-high heat—locks in the flavors. Look for brown caramelization on both sides before. A cast-iron skillet is ideal for this step because it holds high heat and disperses it evenly. 

Tip 4. Temperatures for Grilling Steak

Investing in a meat thermometer will help you cook your steak to perfection! The most important thing to remember about temperature is to pull your meat from the heat when it is 5°F cooler than you want it. For example, if you want a medium steak, pull it from the grill or the pan when it reaches 140°F. This is true for any steak, whether it’s ¾- or 3-inch thick.
  • Rare: 130°F
  • Medium-rare: 135°F
  • Medium: 145°F
  • Medium-well: 150°F
  • Well-done: 160°F

Tip 5. Give It a REST

Tented or not—when you pull your meat from the heat, allow it to rest for at least 5 minutes. This allows the muscles to relax and the juices to flow out—that’s when you know it’s ready. Then for meaty magic, pour those juices over the steak and serve!

What If You Don’t Have a Grill?

Don’t let the lack of a grill stop you from creating steak perfection in your own kitchen. After searing and caramelizing the meat on both sides, you can turn the heat down and continue to cook in the skillet. Or you can put it on a broiling pan and cook it in the oven at 375°F. (If you don’t have a roasting pan, you can use a cooling rack on a cookie sheet to catch the drippings.) Whether pan or oven cooked, you’ll still want to test the doneness with a meat thermometer. Because grass-fed beef is leaner than grain-fed beef, it has less fat and doesn’t retain its juices as much. This results in faster cooking times. Using your meat thermometer earlier than you think you need to can help.

Did you know?

Every Sprouts Butcher Shop has a trained butcher who’s happy to custom cut steaks to your favorite thickness or share their own great grilling tips. After all, they love meat as much as you do. And, if you need a specific cut for a special occasion, they can help with that too!

How to Prepare, Cook & Eat an Artichoke

Share article How to Prepare, Cook & Eat an Artichoke on:
FacebookTwitterPinterestPrint

Native to the Mediterranean region, the artichoke is the not-yet-bloomed flower of a thistle plant that is part of the sunflower family. Despite their slightly prickly exterior, artichokes are quite easy to prepare, cook and eat. Plus, they’re packed with antioxidants, vitamin C and dietary fiber.

Preparing an artichoke: Fresh artichokes in a paper bag

Easy Artichoke Prep

  • Because they have sharp barbs, the first thing you’ll want to do in preparation is to cut the top cluster of barbs off with a sharp knife. This will remove about a quarter of the artichoke. Then, utilizing kitchen shears, cut the barbs off the tops of the remaining leaves.

TIP: Don’t worry that you’re taking too much off the top of the artichoke or the tops of the leaves—the edible part is at the base of the leaf. More on that later …

  • Now that the artichoke is easier to handle, remove the small leaves at the base, closest to the stem and cut the stem, leaving about a ½”.
  • The final step is to rinse the artichoke under cool running water to remove any debris that might be trapped in between petals.

Cooking an Artichoke: It’s Easy!

  1. Add just enough water to a pot so that the water is just below the steamer basket. Cover and bring the water to a boil.
  2. Add the prepared artichoke, replace the lid and lower the heat to simmer the water. It will take 20-40 minutes to cook. After 20 minutes, you’ll want to check the artichoke(s) every 5 minutes. The color will change from fresh green to a more muted green and you’ll know it’s ready when you can easily remove a petal. TIP: Use tongs for this part—those petals will be really hot!
  3. Set aside and allow to cool a bit before eating it.

Now What? How to Eat an Artichoke

  • Serve the artichoke right-side up on a plate.
  • Remove a petal from the artichoke and eat only the bottom, whitish fleshy part of the petal that was closest to the base of the artichoke.
  • You can certainly eat artichokes plain, or with a little salt & pepper. Try dipping them in melted butter or ghee, a tangy vinaigrette or a savory aioli.

TIP: Have a bowl at-the-ready for discarded petals.

Easy Aioli Recipe

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 Garlic cloves, pressed
  • ¼ tsp. Kosher salt
  • ½ cup Sprouts Organic Mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp. Sprouts Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Tbsp. Fresh lemon juice
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Mash garlic and salt in a small bowl until a paste forms.
  2. Whisk in mayonnaise, oil and lemon juice.
  3. Season with salt and pepper—enjoy!

Did you know?

One artichoke plant can produce up to 20 artichokes per year.

What is the Paleo diet?

What is the Paleo Diet article with featured saladBefore you make any changes to your diet, be sure to consult your physician because every body needs something different!

The Paleo diet is pretty simple—eat like early humans from the Paleolithic period. Grains are omitted because humans didn’t start cultivating them until about 10,000 years ago, significantly more recent than the Paleolithic era. Vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds, as well as lean meat, poultry, fish and seafood are all a part of the basic Paleo diet.

What Not to Eat on a Paleo Diet

Besides grains, like wheat, barley, oats, etc., what else will you want to avoid while eating Paleo? Beans and potatoes are out for similar reasons to grains. Although, many people include sweet potatoes but not white potatoes in the Paleo diet. Similarly, dairy and processed sugars are not a part of the Paleo diet either. Of course, processed foods aren’t permissible. But don’t worry, this still leaves lots of delicious foods for you to enjoy!

Paleo Diet Benefits

One of the great benefits of the Paleo diet is boosting the amount and variety of your daily fruit and veggie intake which naturally increases the amount of nutrients and anti-oxidants you’re getting. Sugar has been linked to many health issues, eliminating it from your diet is another plus of going Paleo.
