This recipe is from a 2002 issue of Cuisine. Steven Raichlen, shared his expertise on grilling. If you love a good steak, like I do, try it this way! The recipe called for porterhouse steaks, but I used NY strips.
Steak of your choice
Coarse salt & freshly ground pepper
Strew platter with:
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 T. fresh rosemary, chopped
6 fresh sage leaves, torn
Extra virgin olive oil
For gas grill:
Use a nonstick spray or a folded paper towel dipped in oil, to grease the grates.
Season steaks generously with coarse salt & freshly ground pepper.
Place steaks at a 45 degree angle over high heat; sear 2 minutes.
Rotate steaks 90 degrees and continue grilling for 2 minutes.
Turn the steaks & repeat the process. Try to keep the lid closed during cooking. If you need additional cooking, move the steaks to a cooler part of the grill & continue cooking a few minutes.
Strew a platter with the garlic & herbs. Arrange the grilled steaks on top. Finish by pouring extra virgin olive oil over the steaks. Turn a few times to coat with garlic, herbs & oil. Let steaks rest for 3-5 minutes. Turn them often so the flavored oil coats the steaks.
Now, plate up those yummy steaks & dig in!!!
