The Foreman grill is a countertop grill that cooks from the top and the bottom at the same time, making it a quick process to cook a steak fillet. A 1-inch thick fillet cooks in 7 to 12 minutes, depending on the doneness you prefer. A Foreman countertop grill lets you cook a quick meal at home after a busy day. Experiment with seasoning and marinade to find which you prefer on the Foreman cooked fillet.

Step 1

Place the fillet on the counter to warm for about 20 minutes before cooking it on the Foreman grill.

Step 2

Plug in the Foreman grill and let it heat until the indicator light on the top panel turns off, about 5 minutes. The grill does not have an on/off switch; plugging it in turns it on.

Step 3

Spray the top and bottom cooking surface on the Foreman grill with cooking spray.

Step 4

Rub steak seasoning into both sides of the fillet with your clean hands and place the fillet in the center of the hot grill.

Step 5

Set the Foreman grill drip pan under the front edge of the grill to catch juices and fat drippings from the meat.

Step 6

Cook a rare fillet in the Foreman grill for about 7 minutes. A medium fillet is done in about 10 minutes and well-done in about 12 minutes.

Step 7

Insert a meat thermometer into the center of the fillet to verify the internal temperature is 145 F for a rare steak. A medium fillet has a temperature of 155 F and a well-done is 165 to 170 F.

Step 8

Take the fillet off the Foreman grill with tongs and set it on a plate. Let the fillet rest for 5 minutes before serving to let the internal temperature rise without cooking the meat further.
