Steak is most often cooked on a grill, but if you do not have access to a grill or the weather does not want to cooperate for outdoor cooking, the Cuisinart Griddler is a good substitute. It sits on your counter, offering a grill top, contact grill, sandwich press and griddle setting. The Griddler relies on electricity, but it can deliver a tasty steak just as well as a grill. It is designed to drain away any excess grease that is produced during cooking. Many cuts of steak require high heat to quickly sear the outside and seal in the juices. Purchase a lean cut of steak and trim away excess fat for a healthier piece of meat.
