How to Grill the Perfect Steak

Everyone has their own way to cook steak but this is the method that consistently works for me and has Mr. Kringle sinking back in his chair.  No need for a gas grill, you can do it right in your kitchen and it tastes just as good, if not better, than a restaurant at a fraction of the cost.  I mean who wouldn’t want to dig in to a $30-40 meal for $12-15?

Sur La TableIt gives you a well-seared crust and perfectly juicy inside even if you like it well done!  If you’re ready to wow your family and friends, the video shows you how to bring it all together and what the steak should look like in different stages.

I'm a long time cook/baker that makes food centric recipe videos to help the novice cook or welcome a seasoned cook that wants to focus on the food. I'm passionate about both Christmas and cooking. Once my baking gene gets activated in September, I want to bake all the things. Grab a cup of hot cocoa and come on into my kitchen!


  1. This sounds so easy! Actually, it sounds too good to be true, for someone like me who has been unsuccessful at cooking great steaks in the past. I can’t wait to try it!

    1. I understand how it can feel like trying to catch a unicorn but trust me, once you master it on less expensive cuts like sirloin, you’ll be grilling filets like a pro!

    1. Definitely. I’ve never cooked a steak any other way after learning this technique from a chef friend of ours and they’re been perfect every time!

    1. I just made filet mignon this way last night and Mr Kringle said “as a kid, I never thought you could get restaurant steak at home!” So I consider that a win! 😀

  2. We have some nice steaks sitting in the freezer right now and I am definitely going to try your way of grilling them. I have never been good at getting steaks cooked right!
