Tuscan-Style Grilled Steak

Filed under: Uncategorized — jenseyt @ 7:19 pm
  • 1 large T-bone or porterhouse steak (1 1/2 inches thick)
  • 1 T kosher salt
  • 1/2 t ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 T extra-virgin olive oil
  • lemon wedges for serving

1. Make two-level (one side medium-hot and one side medium-low) fire in charcoal grill.

2. Sprinkle and rub each side of steak with 1/2 T salt and 1/4 t pepper.  Cook steaks, uncovered, over hotter part of grill until well-browned on each side–about 2 1/2 minutes per side.  Move steak to cooler side of grill and continue cooking, turning once, to desired doneness–5 to 6 minutes more for rare, 6 to 7 minutes for medium-rare, or 8 to 9 minutes for medium.

3. Transfer steaks to cutting board and let rest 5 minutes.  Cut stip and tenderloin pieces off bones and slice crosswise about 1/2 inches thick.  Arrange slices on plate, drizzle with olive oil, and serve immediately with lemon wedges.
