Tips for Perfect Grilled Halal Steak

Set up the grill pan — at least 15 minutes before you start grilling. Start with a clean grill pan prevent steaks from sticking when flipping.

Preheat grill pan — Your grill pan needs to be HOT! At least 230°C to get a good sear and crispy edges. Find the hottest areas by carefully and slowly waving your hand 6 inches above the grill plates.

Lightly oil — Using tongs, lightly grease grill pan with a folded paper towel dipped in oil.

Pat halal steaks dry — Let your steaks sit out at room temperature for 15 minutes, then pat dry with paper towel to ensure the perfect sear. Season with salt and pepper, plus anything else you like: paprika, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, etc.

Flip with tongs — Use a pair of tongs instead of a fork to avoid piercing holes in the halal meat and releasing crucial juices. Flip only once during cook time to give it time to form a beautiful crust. You’ll know the steaks ready when they easily lift off the grill.

Slather with garlic butter — the BEST part about this recipe. You can grill your steaks AND have delicious melted garlic butter running down them, infusing them with so.much.flavour. You’re going to use half here, saving the rest for your shrimp.

Rest — Allow steaks to rest for a good 5 minutes before slicing to let the juices settle before serving.

While steaks are resting, grill your shrimp, brushing them with the remaining butter. Get ready for a flavour explosion.
