How to Grill Steaks

I realize the subject of grilling steaks is a big topic. With the numerous cuts of beef available plus different desired levels of cooking, instructions could span several pages. But for our purposes, I will focus on grilling two popular cuts: filet mignon and New York, with a medium-rare result as our goal. The New York is also known as “strip steak” and comes from the short loin of the cow.

How to Cook Filet Mignon in the Oven

Filet mignon, or “dainty fillet” is among the most coveted cuts from the cow due its lovely, tender texture and subtle flavor. Despite the title of our dish, filet mignon should not be fully cooked in the oven. I first sear the steak on the stove top, then transfer to the oven to finish. This method is my favorite, due to the crispy outside crust and perfectly cooked center, beautifully rare.

As I’m not going to actually cook a dolphin, the Cuban sandwich seemed like a great idea for my Miami inspired NFL burger. The Cuban is a beautiful art-like sandwich, made with tender, favorful cuts of pork....so, instead of a beef patty, I decided to grill off a ground pork burger, seasoned with some BBQ rub.

Minnesota Vikings Juicy Lucy Burger

I gotta say an idea for a Minnesota Vikings burger didn’t jump out at me immediately, and so I ended up doing a bit of research.  It didn’t take long to find the Juicy Lucy – apparently a Minnesota tradition that’s morphed into dozens (perhaps hundreds) of variations.  But the original was a stuffed burger with American Cheese as the stuffing.  So let’s go original.

Philadelphia Eagles Cheesesteak Burger

It was pretty easy to invent an Eagles inspired burger – Philly is all about the cheese steak!  I make mine with a thin beef patty, quickly seared on the stove top.  Then, to fully capture that cheese steak vibe, I top it with sautéed onions and peppers, smother it in Cheese Whiz (Gotta use the real stuff!), and serve it up on a hoagie roll.
