Z-Recipes Steak

We love steak in my house.  Except for my vegetarian wife.  But she supports the three boys in the house in our  passion for steak.   And I am certainly appreciative!
So what do I do for steak?
  • Get the best cut of steak that you can.  My favorites?
    • Ribeye – All that marbling isn’t good for you, but what the heck?  It’s the absolute best.  If I go to a steakhouse, I will order a Ribeye.
    • Filet – It’s what I should eat all the time.  Small portions. buttery soft, and excellent flavor and texture.  This is Dawson’s favorite.
    • NY Strip – Solid, healthy, and really good, but not enough fat to make it as good as a Ribeye.
    • Porterhouse – A NY and a Filet – Big and awesome, but it’s a lot, and, it’s fairly hard to cook.
  • Take it out of the fridge and let it sit at least 30 minutesSeason with just two seasonings:
    • Soy Sauce – more interesting that Worcestershire sauce
    • Montreal Steak Seasoning (My absolute favorite – I buy it in bulk at Costco)
  • Cook it on the grill or on the open flame Big Green Egg.  No other way to do it.  Get it as hot as you can without causing flare ups.
  • 3 Minutes on each side, Rotate 90 degrees and cook 2 – 3 minutes on each side again (makes nice cross-hatch marks).  I cook my steak until it’s 130 degrees.  It’s a perfect medium rare.
That’s it.  It’s simple – let it sit for a few minutes before your serve it.
