Nothing is quite as delicious as a steak grilled to perfection. The smoky flavor, the rich tenderness of the steak… it’s the perfect dinner. T-bone and Porterhouse steaks are both essentially the same kind of steak. The difference really is in the tenderloin section of the steak. The tenderloin alone is a filet mignon. The larger portion is the strip steak. Together with a t-shaped bone in the middle and you get a t-bone.

So how does it work on an indoor grill? Quite awesome actually. A Foreman Grill or other indoor contact grill works by grilling on both sides of the meat so it’s important to take a couple of very easy steps to ensure a good steak.

Marinating and tenderizing are really the keys to having your steak turn out great on your Foreman Grill. Using a meat tenderizer hammer, hit the steak a few times and press it out to be about 3/4″ thick. A steak of thickness of 3/4″ – 1″ will cook the best. Any thicker and it gets dicey.

After you’ve tenderized the steak a simple marinade of red wine vinegar (or regular white vinegar if it’s all you have) with some olive oil and seasonings in a ziplock bag for a couple of hours will work wonders.


  • 1 t-bone steak of approximately 3/4″ thick
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke

Total time:45 minPrep time:40 min – Cook time:5 min – Serves:1 people


1. Beat the meat with a tenderizer or pierce with a fork several times. Add olive oil, vinegar, liquid smoke, salt and pepper to a ziplock bag and add the steak. Make sure steak is well coated and let marinate in fridge for at least 30 minutes.

2. Preheat your Foreman Grill for at least 5 minutes with the lid closed. Use a high setting if your grill has it.

3. Slice garlic into thin pieces and using a sharp knife, make several small holes in the steak and place the garlic into the holes. About 8 per side will do.

4. Place on grill and close lid. After about 4 minutes check it and if desired, rotate 1/4 turn.

5. Grill 3-4 minutes for rare; 4-5 minutes for medium rare; 5-6 for medium; 6+ for well done.

    I don’t find anywhere what temperature to set my indoor grill on. I have three George Foreman cookbooks and none of them have temperature settings for recipes. Help.

    Every recipe I find never gives the temperature setting. Would someone please list temperature settings for my indoor GF grill. I’m mostly cooking steaks, but I would like to do chicken in the future as well. Thank you.

    The George Foreman grill is the best its happened in my kitchen. I could never get my t bone steaks done the way I wanted them until I came across the GF grill. My husband and friends ask me how I make the best t bone stakes, I tell them it’s a secret. Thank you George you are a genius.

      Says High/MAX Temp if your Foreman has a temp dial or slider, if not, then it’s automatically always on high with the older ones.
