Grilling Steak V.Needadvise

Ok, So i have 2 boneless top sirloins that together weigh right at 2 1/2 lbs.

Planning on grilling them tonight and wanting some ideas on how you ppl grill steaks and would suggest i try it.

I’ll be grilling with Charcoal, Kingsford Match light.
depends on your taste. Some people like to marinate the shit out of steaks, some people prefer them as simple as you can. I personally use kosher salt + pepper + maybe some garlic (real, not powder). Get them coals as hot as you can (use a chimney starter if you have one) and go to town. Put em on, leave em and dont touch them until you are ready to flip (and flip them only once) get to desired temp (medium rare for me) and youre done.

Please help! v.can’tcooktosavemylife

I want to learn to cook, and I want to learn to love it. Right now, the state of affairs looks like this:

– I can make pasta (premade sauce ), rice and vegetarian stir fry. That is all. I tried meat a few times but it always comes out tough and stringy.
– I currently find cooking boring and a waste of my time, which I’m sure isn’t helping things.

I think the only reason my weight hasn’t soared is because I tend to avoid classic junk food (soda, candy bars, chips, etc) and would rather not eat than expend the effort. Obviously that last bit is some flawed thinking. I’m reasonably bright and creative in other areas, so I’m sure I can learn to cook and love it. I think I need a kick in the right direction.
