How to Grill a Steak Indoors

By  | Last Updated:  

One of the things I love about summer is grilling. Why am I talking about that on the cusp of winter? I’ve found a way to grill indoors—without the smoke and mess.

How to Grill a Steak Indoors 

True confession: I am the grill master at our house. Oh, Mike has tried.

I’m remembering one time when all our invited-for-dinner company waited indoors while Mike burned EVERY piece of meat outside on the grill. I was thankful for good friends and the fast food place around the corner.

After that unfortunate event I learned I can fix all sorts of meals on the grill.

My newest discovery means I can do it year-round with easy one-minute set up, no charcoal necessary and be ready to grill in about six minutes. Clean up is simple too because of the detachable dishwasher-safe grid.

This new wonder is the Philips Smokeless Indoor Grill. Let me tell you that steak grilled this way is juicy and tender—there are even authentic BBQ marks!

Powerful infrared heating delivers an even temperature of 446F. There are special reflectors that focus the heat towards the grid which is why food cooks so evenly.

An integrated grease tray collects dripping fat so smoke and grease are minimized. In traditional grilling, it’s the fat and juices that hit coals and cause the smoke screen.
