Total: 15 mins
- 8 oz boneless NY strip steak
- 1 tbsp organic unsalted butter
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tbsp salt and ground pepper
- If you have a charcoal grill and chimney starter, remove the top grate of your grill for food and place your chimney inside the grill.
- Fill your chimney with hardwood charcoal all the way to the top.
- Slide a piece of paper beneath the chimney and light the paper using a match or small lighter through the hole at the bottom.
- Wait till charcoal is hot and ready. You’ll know it’s ready when the charcoal starts showing shades of grey.
- Pour your charcoal into the grill and adjust your grill openings to rise into a high heat of about 300-400 F.
- Brush olive oil on both sides of the steak.
- Season the steak liberally with salt and pepper – this will make the thin hard crust once it’s grilled.
- Toss the steak on the grill and let it cook until the steak turns golden brown and has perfect char marks (4 to 5 mins). You can tell it has the perfect char by the crispiness of the steak.
- Flip the steak to cook it evenly to your liking.
- Place steak on a cutting board or plate and then put a tbsp of butter on top and let it melt.
