Summer Grilling with Texas Roadhouse

COLCHESTER, Vt. - With Memorial Day just around the corner, it’s almost the start of summer grilling season. One of the most popular grill items is steak, but it’s also one of the most difficult to perfect.

Texas Roadhouse in Williston is lending you a hand as you prepare to fire up the grill. Drew Preston, the manager at Texas Roadhouse in Williston, showed some tips and tricks to make your backyard BBQ the envy of the neighborhood. He demonstrated some safe and delicious ways to prepare that perfect steak.

Preston says the first thing you need to know before you fire up that grill, is the different cuts and types of steak. First there is the tenderloin, which is tender with a mild flavor. Preston says it has a “melt in your mouth” texture. Next is the sirloin which has a beefy taste and is a chewy cut with the most flavor. Preston says this is usually the cheapest cut. The New York Strip is a boneless steak with some marbling and lots of flavor. The T-bone is a combination of a Tenderloin and New York Strip joined by the t-shaped bone. Finally there’s the rib-eye which is cut from the middle of the rib. Preston says this is the most tender cut with a robust flavor.

Texas Roadhouse has some suggested toppings to spice up your cut of steak. Compound butter, a butter mixed herbs and spices, is one way they suggest. Fresh salsa or tomatoes is another way they say you can spice up your cut of meat.
