Steak Fun Facts

By

If you’re here, you probably love a great steak.

But here are a few fun tidbits you might not know about our beloved beef. Read on!

History

  • Although meat has been grilled since shortly after the discovery of fire–some 500,000 years ago–it did not become a popular pastime until the 1950s.
  • Time Frame

  • Depending on the cut of the steak, it may take between 10 and 30 minutes to cook on the grill; thicker cuts, such as filet mignon and T-bone, generally take the most time to grill.
  • Benefits

  • Grilling is an exceptionally healthy method of cooking steak and other kinds of meat because excess fat drains away rather than being consumed.
  • Fun Fact

  • The charcoal briquette was invented in 1920 by Henry Ford, with help from Thomas Edison.
  • Warning

  • Most injuries related to grilling are caused by improper use of starter fluid, such as adding additional fluid after lighting an outdoor grill.
  • Considerations

  • If you want to produce “grill marks” when making steak, avoid moving the steak except to turn it–only once–during the course of cooking.
