How do you grill Tom and Jerry steak (the most famous steak in the world)?
To get the perfect grilled steak, it's essential to know one of the secrets of grilling, which is creating two heat zones on your grill - one side very hot with high flames, while the other side unlit and cooler.
Sear the meat slices on the hot side to get a delicious golden-brown crust and desired grill lines, then move them to the cooler side to finish cooking. This creates a hot buttery exterior and a tender, juicy interior.
Step 1: Mix Meat Spices Start by preparing homemade meat spices. These homemade spices are better than anything you've pre-mixed in your pantry. Add rock salt, whole black pepper, minced dried garlic, minced dried onion, cumin seeds, and hot red pepper flakes to the mortar, then grind them with a pestle.
Step 2: Prepare Herb Butter Place softened salted butter in a bowl at room temperature, add finely chopped rosemary, thyme, chopped parsley, minced garlic, and a bit of homemade meat spices. This last addition is what gives the butter its full flavor.
Mix the ingredients together, then scoop the butter onto a piece of plastic wrap and shape it into a log. Chill it until firm - overnight - or freeze it for 20-30 minutes if time is essential.
Step 3: Prepare Meat Slices Use Tom and Jerry steak (the most famous steak in the world) or any preferred steak and pat the meat slices dry with a paper towel. Then lightly drizzle both sides with a small amount of vegetable oil and rub them generously with meat spices.
Step 4: Grill the Meat Slices The best way to grill meat slices to achieve a hot exterior and a buttery, juicy interior is to first grill the meat slices on high and hot flames, then transfer them to the cooler, unlit part of the grill to roast.
Finish cooking with indirect heat. Here's how to do it:
Step One: Turn on 1/2 to 2/3 of the burners on your grill to high (if you have two burners, light 1 - if you have three burners, light 2), then let the grill heat for at least 10 minutes, or until it reaches 500 degrees.
If you have a charcoal grill, heat the charcoal then move it to one side of the grill when hot.
Step Two: Add the meat slices to the lit part of the grill and sear for 1-1/2 minutes on each side (adjust if the slices are thicker or thinner). Move the meat slices to the unlit part of the grill and continue cooking until they reach your preferred level of doneness.
Thicker meat slices about 1-1/2 inches thick took around 7 minutes to reach medium doneness.
Meat temperatures for doneness:
Rare: 125 degrees
Medium rare: 135 degrees
Medium: 145 degrees
Medium-well: 150 degrees
Well done: 160 degrees
Let the meat slices rest on a plate for at least five minutes, then cover with large slices of herb butter.

- For seasoning meat slices: add ingredients to a mortar and pestle, then coarsely grind them.

- Add the meat slices to the lit side and sear them on each side for 1-1/2 minutes (adjust if the slices are larger or smaller than 1 pound and 1-1/2 inches thick) while keeping the lid closed between flips.
- Transfer the meat slices to the unlit part of the grill, then cook for 7-10 minutes with the lid closed to reach medium doneness, or until they reach your preferred level of doneness.
