What Temperature Do I Grill the Oyster Blade Steak?

The temperature when grilling needs to be the max!

If you’re using charcoal then buy the lump variety as it burns quickly and is very hot!

Don’t have a charcoal grill?

Turn the stove up or on the max setting and let your pan or skillet come to temp.

What Is the Cooking Time When Grilling Oyster Blade Steak?

A 1-inch thick oyster steak will take 1-2 minutes on each side for medium rare.

Why Is the Level of Doneness Medium?

I don’t want to tell you how to have the steak as it is your right!

But it is best to cook it to a medium level of doneness.

If you cook it for too long it can get tough.

If you cook it too quickly the fat or connective tissue will be chewy.

What Internal Temperature Does the Oyster Steak Need to Be?

The internal temperature for a medium beef steak is 160°F.

But remember the carryover cooking when resting!

Remove from the grill when the internal temperature is at 150°F.

How to Accurately Monitor the Internal Temp

A calibrated meat thermometer is your best friend.

Being sure food is cooked to an accurate level will do the following;

– Ensures the food is cooked properly to avoid food poisoning.

– Complete control over your dish.

– Helps you with timing prompts in the cooking process.

Do I Need to Rest the Grilled Oyster Steak?

You should always rest your meat no matter what!

A thin piece of beef won’t need long but it makes all the difference.

Allowing the juices to be reabsorbed back into the meat proteins.

– Wrap in aluminum foil for 10 minutes.

– Monitor the temp on your probe until 160°F.

Preparing the Oyster Steak

– Source the steaks from a reliable butcher (preferably grass-fed)

– Ask for them to be cut to the same size.

– Ask him to remove the external silverskin and extra sinew.

– Remove the steaks from the refrigerator 15 minutes before cooking.

– Pat the steaks dry with a paper towel.

– Cover with oil and then the steak seasoning.

Making the Garlic Prawn Sauce (Optional)
