#1. It’s all about the marinade

Like chicken, you’ll want to marinade your steaks. Choose your flavorings and marinate overnight for the best results.

If you’re not a marinade fan then at least cover your steaks in salt and pepper and then leave to rest for a minutes before cooking. You want to get the meat to room temperature before you even consider cooking to make it tender.

#2. Get the grill as hot as possible

Before you throw the steaks and start timing your cooking, you’ll want to make sure the grill is as hot as possible. Add some oil to the grill panels, too. The oil will help to prevent the meat from sticking, especially when it has a marinade over it.

#3. Time your cooking

Different meat will take a different amount of time to cook properly. The good news is most will take 4-6 minutes on each side. The exact timing will depend on how well you like it cooked. A 4-minute cooking time is good for a little more on the rare side, whereas 6-minutes is good if you like it medium-well.

It’s only a pork tenderloin that you’ll want to cook for longer, as the meat is thicker. Cook for 6-8 minutes, depending on how well you like the meat cooked.
