With grilling season upon us, it's important to perfect your technique. It might seem like you have to be a grill master to make a restaurant-quality steak, but it's really all about the preparation. It's not hard to grill an impressive steak with the right ingredients. Half the battle lies in the prep work. Once you know the right way to prepare your meat and sauce, it's smooth sailing. 

First, you'll want to make sure you rub your meat in a mixture of flavorful spices. Then, you'll want to apply a delicious butter. Shallot and tarragon Bearnaise butter may sound like a super fancy addition, but it's actually very easy to prepare—and it's completely mouthwatering . With just a few ingredients, you'll have a flavorful sauce in no time. Slathering the steak in the buttery goodness periodically as you grill it will help to enhance the flavor, and you can even butter the grill grates before cooking the steak. 

Watch the video above to learn how to grill a steak to perfection. Now you'll be set for a whole summer of grilling!
