The rules of steak: We’ve all heard them, and they’re not always pleasant on the ears. Like the people who insist they like their steak “bloody.” Or those who want you to sear the steak to lock in the juices. Or the person who wants you to rest a cooked steak for 15 minutes to allow time for the juices to redistribute.
Well, they’re all wrong. In fact, we’ve known for years that these steak “rules” are in fact “myths,” yet they continue to be part of the grilling vernacular, even among seasoned grill masters.
