Top 5 Tips for Perfect Grilling
Clean and pre-heat grill on high.
Lightly oil and season everything before you put it on the grill. This helps the searing process and prevents sticking.
Sear the outside of steaks when grilling, using tongs or a spatula to turn the meat, and cover the grill as much as possible during the grilling process to help lock in the great flavor and to prevent flare-ups.
Use the 60/40 grilling method. Grill for 60 percent of the time on the first side, then grill 40 percent of the time after you turn over the food. This will give you an evenly cooked steak.
Place your cooked steak on a clean plate and allow to rest for five minutes before serving to retain moisture and juiciness.
Grill the perfect burger
When it comes to making the perfect burger, every grill master needs a few tricks up their sleeve. From choosing the right ingredients, to knowing how to best maintain the flavor of the meat, mastering the basics is key.
Chef David Eisel of Bob Evans understands that following a specific method can produce a truly mouth-watering burger. “A better-tasting, restaurant-worthy burger starts with quality ingredients and a little creativity,” explains Eisel.
Here, Eisel shares his tips for grilling the perfect burger, his Backyard Burger recipe made with Bob Evans Original Sausage Roll for a fun twist.
Tips for Building a Better Burger
• For a better tasting burger, purchase ground chuck that contains 80 percent lean beef and 20 percent fat.
• For additional flavor, add Bob Evans Original Sausage Roll to your burger mixture. The flavor-enhancing effects of the sausage will add a nice layer of flavor and creativity to your classic burger recipe.
• Create nicely shaped burger patties by making an indent in the middle of the patty with your thumb after forming. The indent helps the patty expand lengthwise as the meat tightens during cooking, rather than width-wise.
• When making your own marinade, use a mixture of oil, an acid such as vinegar, lime or lemon juice, an aromatic like garlic and onion, as well as salt and pepper. Make sure to marinate the meat in the refrigerator for a minimum of 4 hours.
• When grilling, prevent flare-ups by using the grill lid.
• Use an instant-read thermometer and cook the patties until the internal temperature is at least 165F. An internal temperature below this is not recommended when cooking with sausage.
• To maintain the flavor and juiciness of the meat, never turn the burgers more than once while grilling.
• Always toast the buns — either on the grill, or in a skillet — with butter or cooking spray to add another layer of flavor and crunch to the burger.
