- Remove steaks from grill; Allow to rest for 3 minutes.
- Serve with your choice of sides.
What to Pair with Your Steaks
The fat content of a flavorful ribeye makes red wine an excellent pairing option. This composition balances out the bitter tannins of the wine for a smooth, mellow palate. Cabernet Sauvignon is the most popular option for pairing with steak, but whatever you chose for your red beef reduction will work just as well.
Prefer a beer? Stouts and porters are popular options, but feel free experiment to your liking.
The Right Equipment Can Make a "Good" Steak "Great"
Our premium grills—like the TEC G-Sport these steaks were prepared on—can open up a world of cooking possibilities. The infrared technology of this grill evenly distributes heat across the entire grilling surface to prevent hot or cold spots. This, in turn, results in better results no matter what you're grilling. These burners also allow for rapid heat-up and efficient operation of the grill—it uses less than the fuel of other infrared grills on the market.
Infrared grills are far from your only option, however. We offer a full selection of gas grills as well as charcoal grills at Spotix. Call our sales team at 888-977-6849 if you'd like more help finding the right grill for your budget and grilling style.
