Once the timer has gone off, while using a glove, remove the lid and hang it from the bowl. Flip the steaks using tongs and put the steaks back on the side over the coals. Put the lid back on the pot.
Set your timer for another 3-4 minutes. Then check the steaks with an instant-read thermometer to be certain they are done to your liking. Here is a guide that will help you interpret internal temperatures.
Once you take the steaks off the grill, it’s necessary to allow them to rest! A good rule of thumb is to let your food rest for about 20-30% of the total cook time. It took 8 minutes to cook the steaks, so I am going to let them rest for about two minutes before cutting into them.
