Almost from the time that microwave ovens were introduced to the public, there have been specialty dishes that allow the cook to grill meat in the microwave. Depending on the make and model of your microwave grill pan, you can be grilling meat in two to 10 minutes without the hassle of setting up the outdoor grill. Microwave grilling is fast and easy--you can grill steak for dinner in less than 15 minutes.
Things You'll Need
- Microwave grill pan
- Non-stick spray
- Meat thermometer
- 1 inch thick steaks
Spray the grill pan with non-stick spray.
Preheat the grill pan in the microwave on high for 2 to 10 minutes depending on the manufacturers instructions.
Place the meat on the grill pan. Close the lid of the pan if your model has one.
Microwave the meat for 5 minutes on high for rare steaks, 6 to 7 minutes for medium and 9 minutes for well done. Turn the steaks halfway through the cooking time if your grill pan does not have a grill top section.
Test the meat with an internal meat thermometer. A rare steak should read 145 degrees Fahrenheit; a medium steak 160 degrees Fahrenheit and a well done steak should read higher than 170 degrees Fahrenheit.
