How to Grill a Steak to Medium Well on a Gas Grill

By Christina Berry

Grilling steak at home on your personal gas grill can be a real treat, but many are unsure about how to achieve that perfect steak, grilled to their desire. There are several levels of "doneness" when cooking steak, and a common request is for medium well. Steaks that are cooked to medium well should be light brown internally with no pink remaining. Although it may take you a couple of times to know exactly when your steaks are done, you could be grilling up perfect medium-well steaks in no time.

It may take some practice to achieve the perfect medium-well steak.

Step 1

Allow the steak to reach room temperature before grilling.

Step 2

Season your steak with desired seasonings or marinade.

Step 3

Light the grill on high. Oil the grill by dipping a paper towel in cooking oil and hold it with a pair of tongs, brush it over the surface of the grate.

Step 4

Place the steak on the hottest part of the grill and allow it to cook for about five minutes.

Step 5

Flip the steak and cook for another five minutes.

Step 6

Check for firmness. A medium-well steak should feel semi-firm and not at all squishy. Insert a meat thermometer tp check that the internal temperature is about 150 to 155 degrees F. There should be no pink anywhere.
