There is one right way and many wrong ways to cook a steak.
Summer is made for grilling and Americans don't seem to have a problem with that. However, when it comes to what is thrown onto that grill and how it is cooked, things get a little more complicated.
A new study shows that three in 10 Americans still plan a cookout this July 4, reports the Southwest News Service (SWNS). Overall, 49 percent of respondents said they have a day dedicated to outdoor food during the summer.
The study, commissioned by the National Beef Association, also looked at what people cooked on the grill, primarily with steaks. While the various cuts of meat yielded similar results (the T-bone was the most popular, but only with 16 percent of the vote), the way the meat is cooked showed much more variation.
