We received four premium steaks from Fuego Diablo Premium Steaks, to review.
A little background, we don’t eat meat that often and we don’t own a barbeque anymore. We do enjoy the occasional burger or steak when we go out to eat.
When we cook it, I don’t like to put barbeque sauce and prefer a dry run to enjoy the premium taste of a steak.
Orders can be placed online or via a toll-free number; more information, including a full menu, is available at www.fuegodiablo.com.
Shipped in a slick black box, surrounded by dry ice, and that all packed inside a styrofoam box and then a cardboard box. The steaks were well frozen when they reached my door.
Fuego Diablo is serious about their steaks, and they provide you with a sheet describing how to properly thaw the steaks and then to grill them.
I followed the instructions exactly as outlined, and applied simple salt and pepper rub to the steaks. This enables you to taste the premium steak and you can tell that it really stands out from other steaks I have eaten from a grocery store.
They mentioned that the steaks contain a high degree of marbling (which you can see in the picture below) so can be prone to flare ups. I kept my flame on the grill to low, and this minimized the amount of flames from the drippings from the steaks. How long did it take to cook these perfectly thawed steaks?
Instructions from the box and from a search on the Internet keep pointing you to using a thermometer to detect when the steak reaches a certain internal temperature. But what if you don’t have a thermometer? I found a website that described how many minutes a steak needs to be grilled to reach rare/medium/well/ etc, taking into account steak thickness.
For my 1″ thick steaks, the website, Lobel’s Guide to Cooking the Perfect Steak, is 18 minutes in total for medium well. They were correct!
We made a perfect steak and our 1 year old and 3 year old gobbled each bite and it tasted like a high-end restaurant quality steak (like ones I have eaten in Calgary, Houston, and Albuquerque).
I recommend taking a closer look at Fuego Diablo’s website to see their inventory of high quality steaks.
