One must know how to broil the steaks so that they can be juicy. The crust must be crisp and the meat must be tender and juicy. Normally people want to cook the steak on a grill or stir-fry them, but, when the stove is out of propane, people choose to broil the steak. Broiling is quick and it gives a crispy brown crust with tender meat inside. People can always choose to broil any time of the year, and grilling and broiling are similar.

The heat is intense, and the only difference between these two methods is, in grilling the heat is under the food, and broiling is heating the food above the head. It takes about 10 minutes to cook a 3/4 inch steak, 20 minutes to cook a one-inch steak, and 30 minutes to cook 1 1/2 inches of steak. The ingredients to cook the perfect broiled steak are steaks of the required size, olive oil, salt, ground pepper, and chopped-up parsley for garnishing.


Remove the steaks from the fridge, pat them dry and rub the sides of the steak with olive oil. After that, season them with salt and pepper, and let them stay out at room temperature for about 30 to 40 minutes. Make sure the shelves in the oven are positioned in a way to broil and set the broiler too high and place the steaks on the broiling pan and broil them for 6 minutes, keeping them under the broiler.

Using tings, flip the steaks carefully, and broil the other side for another 10 minutes or until the steak is perfectly broiled and cooked. Transfer the steaks to a cutting board, let them rest, add the seasoning and serve the steaks hot with garnishes.
