If you have a good-quality steak on hand, it’s pretty hard to go wrong. All you need is some salt, pepper, and a sizzling grill to turn it into a satisfying main course. However, knowing how long and at what temperature to grill your cut is crucial for your steak to come out just perfect. So there’s your guide to cooking the most popular steak varieties.

Rib Eye Steak

A good rib-eye is definitely worth the splurge. Get the pan as hot as you think it can go, then give it another 30 seconds before frying. A 1.5-inch-thick boneless rib-eye should be cooked for six to eight minutes.

Top Sirloin

For a 1-inch top sirloin, fry for four to six minutes per side. Keep cooking until the fat has taken on a golden brown shade the entire width of the steak.

Porterhouse Steak

A porterhouse is a good choice for a family, as 1.5 pounds will serve four people. Cut slices off the bone so everyone can have a little bit of both sides. To cook a 1.5-inch thick porterhouse, grill for seven to nine minutes.

Flat Iron

Because of its density, a flat iron will take slightly longer to cook – about eight minutes. Start it in a hot pan and reduce the heat, to make sure it’s cooked all the way through.
