Grilling a steak is one of the few culinary skills that can wow guests even if the chef considers themselves to be a novice. Despite the relatively straight forward aspect of purchasing a nice piece of beef and placing it in – or on top – of a source of heat, many still get lost along the way.

Luckily, Binging with Babish has abandoned his normal schtick – which involves cooking up dishes based on popular fare from movie and TV shows – in favor of a more basic tutorial involving preparation of both a skirt steak and tomahawk ribeye.

Whether that’s ensuring you’re slicing the meat in the correct fashion, letting it rest for the proper amount of time, or utilizing a mouthwatering butter-basting technique, Babish showcases the art of simplicity when it comes to steak.
