2021 Editor Note: This method is for a simple direct grill. Please check out the guide on How to Reverse Sear on the Big Green Egg for my current go to Steak cooking method
There are tons of recipes and guides out there on how to cook steak – if you have a grill that should be a right of passage Cooking a steak on the Big Green Egg isn’t much different then any other grill out there – but it will take time and patience to perfect the technique that works for you. Personally, I mix it up and am still working on the perfect steak.
But for this Tuesday night, I whipped up two very nice steaks within 30 minutes (from firing up the grill to shoveling it in my mouth).
Not much more to add then that – why mess with a good cut of beef?
To fire up the Egg, I brought it to temp – 500 degrees using the direct grill setup – the grill set directly on the fire ring. The steaks were then set on the grill, the lid was closed and they sizzled for 4 minutes. I then burped the Egg, flipped the steaks and closed it up for another 4 minutes. And that’s it – who wouldn’t want wood fired steaks on a Tuesday evening after a long day at work?
