The beef tenderloin steak we used in this recipe, is perfect for grilling on the George Foreman.
It locks all the juices but gives it a nice sear! It is a leaner cut of beef, so having the titled plate didn’t affect the cook.

How Long to Cook Steak on a George Foreman Grill?
Allow the grill to preheat before grilling your steak. At the highest temperature setting, preheat your Foreman Grill with the lid closed for at least 5 minutes. Wait for the green light. It means that the griddles have reached their optimal cooking temperatures. This pre-heating will help sear the steak when cooking and provide great flavor and grill marks.
The cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of your steak. Since both sides of the steak cook at the same time on the grilling surfaces, it is less time than on a traditional charcoal grill. For steaks that are ½-inches to 1-inch in thickness, it will take 4-7 minutes for a medium-rare doneness and 7-9 minutes for medium doneness. We have found that for a ¾-inch thick ribeye, 6 minutes on the George Foreman grill results in a perfect medium steak.
This grilling process is a great way to quickly feed your family a restaurant worthy meal right at home.
