How to Make Professional Grill Marks

Recipe Steps

Step 1: Start with a hot, clean grate. Arrange the food to be grilled on the grate so it is diagonal to the bars. Steaks and chops should all face in the same direction.


Step 2: After a few minutes, use tongs to give each piece a quarter turn; this creates a handsome crosshatch of grill marks.


Step 3: Once cooked on one side, turn the food and repeat on the other side.
