Have you ever cut into a steak to see if it’s done? If yes then NOOOOOO don’t do it again. All the juices run out and it ends up dry and tough. Thanks to Askmen.com for this BBQ Steak Hack. It’s how to tell if your steak is done without a meat thermometer. All you need is your hand…
Touch your index finger to your thumb and use your other hand to poke the ball of your palm. This is how a rare steak will feel.
If your steak is medium-rare then it will have the same resistance as when you use your middle finger to touch your thumb using the above method.
This time you want to use your ring finger to lightly touch your thumb. Medium done steaks will feel as springy as this.
Finally, well done steaks will have the same firm feel as when you press your pinkie finger against your thumb and poke the ball of your palm.
