Steakhouse quality enjoyed at home.
Sprinkle steaks with fine-grain table or sea salt, or medium-grain kosher salt. Add some freshly ground pepper or a favourite seasoning blend, if you like.
Pat It Dry
To develop that perfect browned crust, a steak’s surface needs to be dry when it hits the hot grill. Use a paper towel to blot away any surface moisture just before putting it on the grate.
When to flip your steaks
It's okay to flip your steaks regularly. (Unless you want perfect grill marks, that is.) Making multiple turns with a spatula or tongs is easier than trying to get the timing just so on a single flip, and it can help cook the meat more quickly and evenly. Turning steaks occasionally can even prevent dry, curled or cupped edges.
Check the temperature
Use a probe-style digital thermometer to check internal temperatures.
Cook your cut of beef to an internal temperature based on your preferred doneness:
- Medium-rare: 63°C (145°F)
- Medium: 71°C (160°F)
- Well-done: 77°C (170°F)
Let it rest
Let beef rest 5-10 min. after grilling. This helps keep in juices.

Sterling Silver Top Sirloin Medallions
What to look for:
Depending on your preferred doneness, the edges or entire surface of the beef grills to a deep brown. If you like pink in the middle, the meat should have some "give" when pressed. If it's firm, it's likely already at well-done.
Flipping steaks frequently can help with more even cooking and avoid over-searing. This can result in a juicier steak.
Sterling Silver Flat Iron Steak and Roast
What to look for:
Flat iron can appear pinker inside even at the same doneless level as other beef cuts. Try grilling flat iron to a lesser doneness than usual for maximum tenderness and flavour. Remove from BBQ at 63°C (145°F) for medium-rare or higher temperature, as preferred. Tent under foil to retain cut’s ample juices.
Flat iron draws on expert butchery and is one of the most tender beef cuts available. It's regarded as second only to the tenderloin for tenderness.
Why dry age?
In a word: flavour. The dry aging process naturally breaks down the fibres in the meat for an exceptionally tender texture. As the beef ages, much of the water inside evaporates, concentrating its rich, bold umami flavour.
