One of my favorite meals is steak. I could eat it morning, noon, and night. Seriously. I don’t because that much red meat is not good for you. But if I could, I would definitely do it! What is better than just steak, is pairing with grilled mushrooms. Steak with mushrooms is THE ultimate dinner.

Tips for Grilling the Perfect Steak
Here are a few tips for grilling the perfect steak:
Remove the steaks from the refrigerator about 30 to 40 minutes before cooking. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and allow the steaks to come to room temperature.
Marinate them in either Terriyaki Sauce for a delicious flavor, or Worchestershire sauce for a more subtle flavor.
Season both sides of the steak with Lemon and pepper and garlic salt
Most people will tell you not to flip your steaks but once, but my hubby is an A-One griller and he flips his steaks several times. The secret though is to let the steaks get their char on before flipping.
Telling when a steak is done is not an exact science. An instant-read meat thermometer is most accurate way; insert it into the center of the steak. Rare is 110 to 115 degrees; medium-rare, 120 degrees; medium, 125 to 130 degrees; medium-well, 130 to 135 degrees; and well, 140 degrees. (Err on the low side, since steaks will continue to cook when removed from the grill.) Allow the meat to rest for 3 to 4 minutes before serving, to allows the juices to emerge from the center.
Top the steak off with a pat of butter while it is resting.
