The most important thing to remember when cooking stake on the grill is not to overcook it. It''s so important that I will go ahead and repeat it, do not overcook it. This is biggest mistake that most people make when cooking steak on the grill. In the end you''ll have a steak that is tough and dry and not very enjoyable at all.

So what is the proper way to cook a steak you ask? Well, there are a couple different options for preparing the steak before it even goes on the grill. You could marinade them over night with your favorite marinade. If you don''t want to marinade overnight, you could apply the marinade a couple hours before they go on the grill. The key is to have the steaks completely thawed which will allow the marinade to soak in.

Once you''ve got your steak prepared, preheat the grill and then cook the steaks on the highest setting for 3 minutes on each side with the lid closed to sear the steaks.

Next, reduce the heat to medium and then cook the steaks for an additional 3 to 7 minutes on each side depending on how done you want the steaks. For more rare steaks, cook for a shorter amount of time or just long enough to have a consistent pink coloring in the middle. For more well done steaks, cook for a longer amount of time until the pink is gone from the middle but be careful not to overcook the steak as this will dry it out.

When your steak has been cooked to your liking, let it stand for a few minutes and then serve. Steaks are best served with steak source or without, depending on how much marinade you have applied before cooking.
