Grilled Steak

Just in time for Father’s Day and it is also time to break out the outdoor grills. My favorite thing to grill is a great steak.

Remember that the grate is the part of the grill that comes in direct contact with the food, so it should be clean. That doesn’t mean it needs to be scrubbed with soap and water, in fact most grates are not meant to be cleaned by water. The heat from the grill cooks off any leftover food and sterilizes the grate, while a grill brush helps remove the debris. I clean my grill grate both before putting the food on and again after grilling. Start up the grill for 30 minutes until any cooked on bits of food are burnt off and then clean the grate with your wire brush. Then give the grill one last cleaning by wiping it down with a paper towel soaked with vegetable oil. This also helps prevent sticking of food to the grate.

4 New York strip steaks, or splurge and go with a filet mignon 1-inch thick

2 Tablespoon olive oil

Salt and ground pepper

After cleaning your grill grates (see above), your grill will be hot. It should be hot enough that you aren’t able to hold your hand over the grates for more than 2 seconds. Brush the steaks on both sides with the oil and season with salt and pepper. Place steak on the grill, do not close the lid. Cook until browned and has a seared crust on the first side about 4 to 5 minutes. Turn steak over and continue to grill 3 to 5 minutes for medium-rare (an internal temperature of 135 degrees) 5 to 7 minutes for medium (140 degrees) or 8 to 10 minutes for medium-well (150 degrees). Transfer the steaks to a cutting board or platter, tent loosely with foil and let rest 5 minutes before slicing. Just before serving place about a Tablespoon of the Garlic Ranch Butter onto each steak.

Garlic Ranch Butter

1/4 Cup butter, softened

1 teaspoon minced garlic

2 teaspoons Ranch Dressing Powder

Combine the butter, garlic, ranch dressing powder and mix until combined. It will take a few minutes to combine. You can also double or triple the recipe and spread this onto some Texas Toast Bread and toast on your grill for an awesome treat.
