If you have a beautiful cut of organic beef or grass-fed beef, you may want to head straight to the barbie to grill it.
Here are the top tips to get the most out of your juicy organic beef steak.
Choose the right cut
At a restaurant, you may be served dry-aged rib-eye, but at home you can make a delicious barbecue with skirt steak, sirloin or rib-eye.
Let the meat cool down to room temperature
If the meat is all the same temperature then it will cook more evenly. If you have stored the meat in the fridge, make sure you take it out with plenty of time to let it reach room temperature.
In the warmer months, this shouldn’t take too long.
To rub or not to rub?
Premium organic meat does not need anything more than salt and pepper to bring out the flavours.
However, if you wish to add some additional flavour, consider rubbing the meat with a dry spice, or spice and herb mixture.
Combine the spices you want to add and rub around a teaspoon of the mix onto each side of the piece of meat.
If you use a rub, make sure you grill your steak over a slightly lower temperature as the spices can burn.
How hot should you have the grill?
If you have only used a simple salt and pepper seasoning on your meat then you should aim to turn up the grill as high as you can.
A hot grill will char the meat and sear in the flavours.
The best tip is to cook each side of the steak for around four to six minutes, depending on how well-done you like your organic meat to be.
Flipping it multiple times will mean you lose all the flavourful juices of the meat.
