What is the best way to cook a steak on a George Foreman G5 grill?

Asked by metadog (378points) March 2nd, 2010

HI! I got the G5 for Christmas and am still trying to figure out the best way to cook a boneless steak on one. Should I use one temperature through out? Start high, then turn it down? Start low and turn it up? I haven’t been able to nail it. Can you help

One temperature through out. Don’t play with it.

Let the grill fully heat up as that is common mistake with any grill.

Oh lord. Medium high. Season and tenderize first. I like to use butter for a steak, but I suppose all you healthy people out there will disagree. Regardless of your poison, satick it on there when it’s hot, shut the lid, and take it off again in about three and a half minutes. It should be medium well, if it’s an average sized steak.

You could use the ‘high’ setting if you’re looking to get a nice sear with a rare middle, but if you’re looking to cook the steak evenly as on other grills, I second what @Trillian said.. medium or medium-high should be good and keep it the same temp the whole time. Let the grill heat up fully, as @Cruiser said.

I looooove George Foreman grills, they are the bomb! I like to marinate whatever I’m going to cook (pierced with a fork to get the marinade in and to aid in tenderizing). How long you cook for depends on the thickness of the meat, obviously. I had to learn by trial and error on various cuts, eventually you’ll get it. :)

Yum.. now I want GF steak!!

I have read on some review site that the Foreman G5 Grill doesn’t get hot enough to properly cook a steak, has anyone heard that or had the same experience?

@metadog—When I looked into that, by reading reviews and asking on the website, it appears they have purchased defective machines, and should get them replaced.
