If you decided to invite your friends for a meet-up at your place, you might want to serve food. We all know that steaks are good, but how about the eye of round steak?
It is not that hard to prepare. There are many ways you can cook the eye of round steak. This article contains the best methods and tips for grilling the eye of a round steak.
How to Grill the Eye of Round Steak?
It is always a good idea to prepare your meat before you cook. If you find excess fat on the sides of your steak, the first thing you should do is remove it.
If not removed it will start bristling up and will ruin your entire dish.
Put some pepper and salt on top of the steak after we have removed extra fat. It is important to keep in mind that the pepper and salt amounts are the same.
You might not get the taste you are looking for if you do not do this correctly. The next thing we have to add is onion powder.
I like to sprinkle lots of onion powder and salt on my piece of the stake. I think onions make it softer and more delicious.
It would be a good idea to add garlic, but make sure it is very thin.
The next step is packing your meat into a vacuum bag. If you can, try to remove as much air as you can and put it into the refrigerator.
You have to keep it in the refrigerator for at least two to three hours. The proper absorption of ingredients will be ensured by this.
Next, we need to heat your gas grill. The juices must be flowing from your steak. It’s a good idea to keep the steak in the freezer for an hour.
This will ensure that the meat should not stick to the grill while you turn it over. There is nothing to worry about because the meat won’t be frozen solid.
Getting Meat Into the Grill
If you want to avoid damaging the sides of your steak, open the vacuum bag slowly and take the steak out of the freezer.
Make sure that the flames aren’t under your piece of meat by starting a fire. If you don’t do this, the garlic will lose all of its flavors, leaving you with a mediocre meal.
Leave your meat on the grill for at least nine minutes. The steak will require an air supply after this. The grill needs to be removed and left like this.
Leave your meat to cook for 4-5 minutes after flipping it. Determining if your steak is ready or half-cooked will be the next difficult part.
If you are a chef, just touching it with a finger will suffice.
Let’s face it, most of us aren’t that professional It is the best way to check if the steak is ready to eat if you have a meat thermometer.
If you don’t have a Thermometer, you can cut the steak slightly. There should be no signs of red, bloody meat on the inside of your steak. If your meat is like this then it well-cooked.
Place the meat on the cutting board when you are done cooking it. Allow it to be like this for 15 minutes. It is enough time for the meat to digest and settle all the juices.
Seasoning Eye of Round Steak
After you grill the eye of a round steak, it is time to know how to season it.
If you don’t know how to do this, you’re at the right place. I love pouring more pepper and garlic after the steak is done cooking.
Don’t pour too much onion powder or it will get a very strong taste that’s not satisfying to your senses.
Serving the Eye of Round Steak
Now it is time to serve your steak for loved ones. Here are some serving tips. But it is totally up to you. You can serve the way you want.
A fresh taste is brought to the table with Tomatoes. You can slice a few tomatoes and put them on a plate with some olive oil.
Is there any extra spicy food that you enjoy? Red peppers are your number one choice if you do. Remember that peppers have already been used before cooking, so don’t add too much.
I don’t like BBQ sauce, but I’ve seen a lot of people do this, even chefs. If you like BBQ sauce and want to pour as much as you please, go ahead and do it.
For preparing, cooking, seasoning, and serving the eye of round steak is all that is required.
Is it a good idea to cook it on a frying pan?
Why not. You can comfortably cook the eye of round steak on a frying pan. But frying it in a lot of oil will remove most of the juices.
Do I need to keep the steak in the Freezer?
It is a good idea to keep it in the freezer for about an hour to make sure it is tender and nice after cooking. But it is not necessary.
Will my steak lose taste if it is left until the next day?
No. You can keep this for at least one week.
This is a healthy and simple recipe for your next BBQ party or dinner. You can grill them with or without onions and you will get a delicious dish.
It is low in calories (as you removed fat) and can be prepared in less time. So, make sure you try this recipe at your next dinner party.
