    Sounds like you ruined your steak by leaving it in the George Foreman too long.

    All the George Foreman is is a source of heat like charcoal, propane, electric or natural gas.

    You determine the desired doneness and the timing.

    3 to 6 minutes should be the best time range depending upon thickness and desired doneness.

    Watch the steak while it cooks you don’t want to over cook it.

    it’s because they do not cook evenly because of the way it closes. how high did you have it. if you are going to cook a steak in doors it is easier to brown on both sides for 1 min in a frying pan and then finish cookin in the oven until it is done the way you like it.

    I have a George Foreman grill and it works GREAT,these grills DO NOT AUTOMATICALLY cook the food,you do HAVE TO WATCH IT so not to over or under cook it …………….

    because you left it in too long

  • SayWhat? says:

    If you think it was overcooked and you weren’t at fault for leaving it in the machine too long, then the heating element on your grill might have quit working.

    Hmm..maybe don’t fall asleep while cooking? I have eaten many a charred frozen pizza by falling asleep with one in the oven and awaking 3 hours later to the smell of smoke..but charcoal is good for the digestion…think of it that way..it absorbs toxins..LOL

    Cuz steak is made for a real grill – with fire and smoke and grunting types chugging beer. If you put a steak on a sheet of hot metal, it’s bound to turn out to be a bad day….
