No matter how great your marinade, knowing how to grill a steak is imperative. Remove the steaks from the refrigerator about an hour before grilling. Room temperature beef does not lose moisture on a hot grill like a cold steak does. When it comes to the actual grilling, if you have a charcoal grill available, use it. Once your coals turn gray, move the coals to one side of the grill. Cooking beef with indirect heat will ensure steaks are juicy and tender. Depending on the thickness and desired temperature, the perfect filet mignon takes about 20-30 minutes to grill.
From start to finish, this recipe will take you about 40 minutes.
Allow the steaks to marinate for at least 3 hours. Ingredients
