Steak Florence Style

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.

Season & Grill:

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

Finish with:

Extra virgin olive oil

For gas grill:

Use a nonstick spray or a folded paper towel dipped in oil, to grease the grates.

Preheat grill.

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!!!
