It's been said that the best steak is made on an infrared grill. Here's one way to make a fantastic infrared-grilled steak.

  • Pick out a nice steak from your local butcher. The fresher the better.
  • Coat the steak lightly with extra virgin olive oil.
  • Add your favorite seasoning. Some favorites are Tony Cheshire's Creole Seasoning, Montreal Steak Seasoning, or good 'ol salt & pepper.
  • If you have a side-burner on your infrared grill, heat up a cast-iron skillet. It will be used later on.
  • Turn up your infrared grill to high, then over the infrared burner, quickly sear your steak on both sides twice. Flip it 3 times, about every two minutes.
  • Now, move the hot iron skillet over the regular burners and transfer your steak into there.
  • Close the grill lid and let your steak cook in there for another 4 minutes.
  • Use tongs to remove the steak, being careful not to break the seal that the searing created. It's that seal that's holding in all the juices of the steak. If you cut it too early all the juices will leak out, so give it a good 5 minutes before you serve it.

While infrared is great for searing steaks, everyone should know how to cook a great hamburger. Since infrared grills cook a little differently than regular gas or charcoal grills.

First, preheat your infrared grill by setting it on the highest possible setting.

Make your best hamburgers, the same way you normally would. I like mine with onion soup mix and a dash of tabasco. Everyone has their own style, but I recommend making an indentation in the middle of the burgers because otherwise they could turn out round rather than flat.

Once you're ready, turn down the heat on the grill to medium. Lightly pray olive oil on the burgers to prevent them from sticking and to add a little bit of extra flavor.

Pay attention, because of the higher temperature, the burgers will sear and cook quickly. After about a minute, flip the burgers. 30 seconds or so later it should be mostly cooked on both sides. Give it another flip and 30 seconds later the last flip. This way you can get nice diamond grill marks on both sides.

If you want to add cheese or other toppings, do it on the last flip, but turn off the grill and close the lid. The radiant heat will be enough to melt the cheese, but don't leave them in too long or the burgers will overcook.

Infrared is great for burgers because they will cook quickly without drying out, and on newer models, the drippings will be evaporated instantly, bathing the burgers in their own smoky essence, without leaving a mess on the burners.

Cooking on an infrared grill is also great for fish, and using a cedar plank will get you a nice smoky flavor that many proponents of charcoal grills claim gas & infrared grills are incapable of. Not only will you get nice flavorful salmon from this recipe, but you also will have a great cedar smoke aroma infused into the fish.

Ingredients

  • 4 one-pound salmon filets
  • 2 medium cedar planks (1/2 to 1 inch thick, large enough to hold 2 filets each)
  • 2 teaspoons fennel seeds
  • 1 shallot
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • Seasonings: Sea salt or kosher salt, black or white ground pepper, and extra virgin olive oil

Initial Preparation:

  • The first thing to do is take your cedar planks and fully submerge them in cold water to soak for at least an hour. This is so they will produce smoke rather than simply catch on fire. Lightly crush your fennel seeds using the side of a heavy knife or a mortar & pestle Dice the shallot into fine pieces. Slice up the butter into 1-teaspoon slices.
  • The Sauce: Beurre Blanc.
  • Beurre blanc is a simple butter sauce made with white wine vinegar. It will give our salmon a lot of flavor and go well with the smokiness of the cedar.
  • Add olive oil and diced shallots to a small saucepan over medium heat. Sautee the shallots until fragrant, but not browning. Next add the white wine vinegar and reduce it on a simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes until it is about half the original volume.
  • Take the pan off the stove and begin to add butter slowly, one slice as a time, whisking to incorporate it. The goal here is to melt the butter in without letting it foam up. You will have to manage the temperature, and make sure that each piece of butter is dissolved before adding the next one. This will give your beurre blanc the correct texture.
  • Once the butter is incorporated, add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cooking the Salmon:
  • Make sure your infrared grill is preheated to medium-high.
  • Pat the salmon filets dry with a paper towel and coat them with a mixture of salt, pepper,and fennel seeds on the flesh side. All sides of the fish should then be coated lightly with olive oil.
  • Place the cedar planks, having been soaked for more than an hour, on the hot grill. Arrange the salmon two per plank. You can then simply close the lid and let the fish cook. They will be done in about 15-20 minutes.
  • There is a chance the cedar planks could still catch on fire. If that happens, it's no problem, just spray them with a little bit of water to put the fire out.
  • When the salmon is done, serve it with a spoonful of beurre blanc on top of each filet. There you have it, a delicious fresh summer meal for 4. Cedar-smoked salmon on an infrared grill.
