Get the grill ready for this super hot deal on USDA Choice T-Bone Steaks at Safeway!

The T-Bone steak is a primo cut of meat – sometimes referred to as a porterhouse steak,  half the steak is a NY Strip and the other half is a tenderloin cut from the short loin. It’s tender, flavorful, and delicious, but you want to be sure to grill a T-bone steak properly and not overcook it.  Using a combination of direct and indirect heat for T-bone steaks is the way to go.

Bring the steaks to room temperature before grilling to ensure even cooking throughout. 

Heat one-half of the grill to high heat to create the perfect grilling condition for a T-Bone.

The most important step in cooking steak is letting it rest.  Letting a steak rest allows the juices to reincorporate back into the meat making it juicy and flavorful.  The worst thing you can do is cut into a steak while grilling to check for doneness. All the juices will run out and you’ll be left with a dry steak.  

Use a meat thermometer to check for doneness.  An internal temp of 130º is perfect for a medium-rare steak.  You can always go up a little in internal temp, but you don’t want to have a well-done T-bone, trust me!

  1. Garlic and onion powder are also great additions to steak marinades.

    Tip for pan frying or grilling: start off by gently searing the sides to lock in the tasty juices. Plus, it helps the fat crisp up a bit.
