How to Get The Perfect Criss-Cross When Grilling
When grilling any item with a flat surface everyone is always looking for a perfect crisscross. The charring on the outside of a grilled item adds a unique flavor that is often craved. The Diamond shape of the grill marks on a perfectly grilled steak adds eye appeal along with the charred flavor.
To achieve perfect crisscross grill marks you need to preheat your BBQ to about 400-500 degrees F. This will ensure that the product that you are grilling doesn’t stick when you put it on. Place your protein on the grill on an angle. Once the item has cooked for half the amount of time on that side, turn the protein a quarter turn and cook for the same amount of time. Flip the protein and repeat the steps for the second side. For a medium cooked steak that is 1 inch thick I would cook it for approximately 2 minutes then a quarter turn and 2 more minutes for a total of 4 minutes per side. It is always important to rest your protein after it is cooked so that the juices remain trapped inside of the meat.
