Williamsburg Steakhouse Tips: Cooking Steak At The Right Temperature

September 3, 2019Read More

To a steakhouse, including our steakhouse in Williamsburg Virginia, the small details make a big difference. Naturally there are times when you are cooking steak at home but you may not always have steakhouse quality beef. Outside of the confines of steakhouses like Fireside, you will also be without an oven that reaches the temperatures necessary to effectively sear gourmet meat. That being said there are things you can do to improve those meals where you are making steak yourself at home or on the grill.

Steakhouse Tips

Put in steakhouse tips or steakhouse grilling tips into the Google search box and you will be inundated with results. Steakhouse tip after tip will pop up and offer instructions on just about every element involved with preparing a great steak. Great steak is the culmination of a lot of little details that make a huge difference. One tip you may see very high on the list is the importance of not taking steak right from the refrigerator to the grill.

Steakhouse Tip: Avoid This Steak Mistake

Many steakhouse chefs consider this a major mistake in preparing steak. The rationale behind this is justified. For many non steak chefs it seems like a simple oversight but it can have a detrimental impact on that steak you are about to cook.

I have seen articles that are contrary to this. They say it does not matter, or the impact of the temperature difference between the inner area and outer area of the meat is minuscule. I say why take that chance. Maybe you have one of those refrigerators that is colder than it should be, leaving the inside of that tenderloin much colder than you realize.

Let The Steak Reach Room Temperature

Be on the safe side and make sure that steak is one consistent temperature before you grill it. You do not want the meat heating up unevenly on the grill. And on the off chance that you miscalculated the difference in the temperature throughout the meat, this is a great fail safe. I think that is why a lot of the steakhouse chefs mention this as a thing to look out for when grilling at home.
