How to make the PERFECT steak:
Nothing beats a juicy steak on the grill and chef John Macchia, Consumer Reports' grilling expert tells us how to do steak right. First- buy a large cut so you can butcher it yourself- you'll get a lot more for your money that way. Use a heavy layer of salt to season them and some cracked black pepper- both sides. Make sure your grill is clean and pre-heat it on high- you'll be cooking them on the high setting too. Cook your steaks for a minute and a half for each turn. When you see the juices coming out of the top of the steak- that usually means it's to temperature- that's a perfectly rare cooked steak. If you like it more cooked- continue the turns. The temp inside the steak should be at least 145 degrees- you'll need a meat thermometer to know for sure.
