To ignite the coal is something innate to man; since the Homo Erectus (it is not badly thought) it began to manipulate the fire more than 800,000 years ago. But it still requires technique and there are several ways to do it. Use paper to light the charcoal and do not forget to blow it. At this point place – on the hot charcoal – some leaves of rosemary, bay leaf, thyme and peppercorns (black, pink, white …) that will aromatize the meat.
Cut an onion in half and pass it through the grill grate to clean it. This will prevent the meat from sticking.
Salt is controversial. Some eaters recommend adding it to the beginning, others in the middle and there are also those who defend the theory of salt meat at the end. To avoid falling into controversy, the team of chef recommends adding salt when sealing the meat. That is, place the meat on the one hand. It is already with color ‘cooked’ add the salt and turn to repeat the procedure.
According to the recommendations if the meat is of good quality it does not need to be marinated. Some recommend putting the whole piece of meat on the grill. It is at the desired point make cuts of 4 centimeters to serve the diners.
Remember that putting meat requires order. First, then the chicken and finally the beef. Place the sausages and vegetables in the corners so that they cook slowly. While cooking these foods, take a brush and anoint the chimichurri. So that, the flavor is accentuated.

Whether you make your steak in the pan or grill, here I show you step by step how to achieve a juicy and tasty meat, I mean how to make a delicious steak. A piece of steak can be perfect with calamari sandwich.
The smell of steak and especially when it is seasoned with an abundance of garlic reminds me of my grandfather. I have already told you how in the summers it prepared its breakfast of champions at 6 o’clock in the morning and the smells of food woke me and my cousins on the second floor of the house of the beach. The truth is that I turned around and kept sleeping until at least 9 o’clock.
Now that I would sleep until 9 am. My husband and daughters are early risers and when I get up at 8 on weekends, it bothers me that I am a sleeper. If they knew how easy it was in my house in winter on weekends, I would sleep until noon.
Returning to the steak, the technique is learned, but the meat must be good. In Chile they buy black coffee, here in the US I buy “top sirloin” in my supermarket they sell excellent “aged” ones.
I do not like thin steaks, and it’s much harder to be ready, there’s no room for mistakes … and if over-cooking is like shoe sole …. so buy thick steaks of about 2 cm. After cooking I cut it into thin slices and serve it.Garlic steak

Season the top side with salt, pepper, and garlic and cook for 4 more minutes. If you like it like in the photo, take out of the heat and rest for 10 minutes on a cutting board covered with a pot or aluminum foil. Cut into slices and serve with your juices.
