What to look for when picking a good steak
When picking a good steak, always look for marbling. This is the white fat within the steak. A good rule of thumb is, the more marbling evenly distributed throughout the steak, the better your steak will taste. Also make sure the beef looks fresh and does not have an expired sticker on it. Steaks on the bone tend to be more tender and flavorful. Buying meat from a butcher is the way to go. Get to know your butcher, become friends and they will help you choose the best steak at the best value.

5. Flip the steaks to the other side and let them cook, and them give them another quarter turn.

7. Remove steaks from the grill and let them rest from 5 to 10 minute before slicing. This let the juices settle.
