Sometimes simple is best. This easy grilled steak requires just two spice bottles and a sugar bag.
Every self-respecting man needs to know how to cook a good steak. Face it, folks: a thick slab of perfectly prepared beef is hard to beat and makes even the most hardened vegetarian have second thoughts. Ask your local butcher to cut a 1-inch thick slab of the best cut you can afford, but make sure it's at least choice grade. If you don't have a charcoal grill, you'll need that too....Please NO GAS! Finally a good marinade.
These are one of our go-to everyday steaks. Our beef is home-grown and dry aged and you don't want to ruin the flavor of great beef by covering it over with too much in the way of herbs and spices. This marinade gives us a really nice touch of Southwestern living while grilling up juicy and tender.
Here's another steak we love here at the ranch. This one has a teriyaki-based marinade. As always, the marinade does not overpower the flavor of top quality beef, but instead adds a light and surprisingly good seasoning. The grilling time can be adjusted to your liking, but as written should give you medium rare 1 1/4" thick steaks, and slightly more done 1" steaks.
