Steaks Cooking Times & Tips

Posted on 09 February 2019

Perfect Steak Tips

Suggested total cooking times are estimated below for a preheated oven broiler. Red-hot charcoal may take less time.

Cooking times below include the initial searing time. Be sure to deduct the searing time from the total estimated cooking time to determine how long the steaks should be grilled, pan-seared, or pan-roasted.

DO NOT OVERCOOK

For best results, check the internal temperature for doneness with an instant-read thermometer a couple of minutes before the end of suggested cooking time.

Cooking Times: Indirect Heat

Steaks, burgers, and chops that are 1 inch or more in thickness are best cooked using a two-stage cooking method. Sear first over direct heat, then finish over indirect heat. Be sure to deduct the searing time from the total estimated cooking time to determine the finishing time.
