Marinade your steak the Cal Flame way!

When it comes to a good tasting steak Cal Flame has all the tools to enhance flavor and grill your meat thoroughly. Here is a recipe to marinade your steak for a delicious dinner!

Ingredients:

2 (8 ounces) boneless rib-eye steaks

salt and ground black pepper to taste

1 pinch garlic powder, or to taste

1 pinch Montreal steak seasoning, or to taste

Marinade:

1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce

1/3 cup soy sauce

1/3 cup balsamic vinegar

3 tablespoons Dijon mustard

3 cloves garlic, chopped

Directions:

Place steaks on a flat tray and cut a slit into the steak at 1-inch intervals in the fat around the edges of the steaks. Pierce both sides of each steak a few times with a fork.

Sprinkle each steak with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Montreal steak seasoning. Pat seasonings into steaks.

Put all the following ingredients in a bowl: olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard, and garlic together in a bowl.

Get a large plastic ziplock bag or a sealed container and put the steaks inside. Pour marinade over steaks to coat. Seal the ziplock and give it a good shake… or if you put the steaks in a container…cover the container with the lid and marinate steaks in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

Preheat your Cal Flame grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the exclusive V-Grate.

Cook the steaks on the preheated grill until they start to firm, and are reddish-pink and juicy in the center, 8 to 10 minutes per side for medium-rare. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 130 degrees F (54 degrees C).

 

 

How to Grill a Porterhouse Steak on a Cal Flame Grill

Ingredients:

1 2”-thick Porterhouse steak, trimmed (about 2 lb.)

Olive oil

Himalayan Pink Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper

 

Prep:

 

The night before grilling, pour marinade over the desired type of meat.

 

Cover, and refrigerate for up to 8 hours.

 

Allow steak to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before cooking.

 

Before you grill, lightly coat the meat with olive oil.

 

Extra option: If you have a Cal Flame smoke tray, soak your chips in water for 30 minutes before you grill. When you begin to grill, make sure you smoke chips are in the grill for added flavor.

 

Let’s Begin:

 

Start by making sure your Cal Flame Grill Exclusive V-Grate Cooking Grate surface is clean.

 

Ignite your grill and raise the heat to 450 Degrees Fahrenheit

 

When the grill is heated add Vegetable oil on the grill to prevent sticking.

 

Season the steak and keep it simple. The real secret is using Himalayan Pink Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper.

 

Steaks grill quickly so you may only need to turn them over once. If you flip too much you may experience loss of flavor.

 

Depending on how you like your meat cooked is the cooking time. Reference Below:

Rare: 125°F – 130°F

Medium-Rare: 130°F – 135°F

Medium: 140°F – 145°F

Well-Done: 160° and higher

 

 

Cal Flame features that will enhance your porterhouse steak:

You can choose to place your steak in the sear zone if you like a slight crisp.

Another option is to add the Cal Flame Charcoal Accessory to your grill for added flavor along with adding the smoke tray for flavor as well.

Rest the steak on a plate or cutting board before you start cutting. Letting the steak settle will give juices time to soak into the meat.

Enjoy your meat grilled to perfection and cooked evenly on your Cal Flame Grill.

 

 

Changing the Game with Convection Grills

An option once only found in the kitchen is now available for the cooking enthusiast outdoors. Convection cooking uses high-velocity fans to distribute hot air throughout the entire cavity of the grill when the grill hood is shut.

 

By circulating hot air, cooking times are greatly reduced and the food is cooked evenly. Compared to conventional barbecue grills, cooking with a convection grill offers faster pre-heat times, reduced gas consumption, and increased cooking control.

High-velocity fans located at the rear of the grill circulates heated air around and against the food creating an overall ambient temperature. The result of this motion is even baking and delightful textures.

Convection barbecue grills also reduce cooking times by up to 30% and use up to 25% less fuel than traditional barbecue grills. By adding convection control to a barbecue grill, grilling enthusiasts can now enjoy the convenience of baking outdoors while grilling their favorite meats, vegetables, and poultry at the same time.

Gourmet recipes are ready to serve faster with convection cooking. Made of solid 304-stainless steel, our burners emit up to 95,000 BTU with our 5-burner grill (75,000 BTU – 4-burner grill) and have a ten-year warranty.
