For GRILLING steak - I start the grill, heat up on high for 5+ minutes before putting the steak on. I cook on MED. We like our steaks less pink & Medium to Medium Well, so we add 2 minutes per side. (And 2 minutes or more per side if they are extra thick steaks). Only flip ONCE. Add a pat of butter & dash of salt, and no Steak Sauce needed.
