The Best Grilled Steak Recipe

The Best Grilled Steak Recipe
Staff Writer


Grilled steaks are part of every barbecue and outdoor cookout. There are plenty of steak recipes to choose from, but the best one uses just a few ingredients. Our grilled steak recipe uses just a drizzling of olive oil, salt, and pepper to accentuate the juicy and rich flavor of a good steak. For this particular grilled steak recipe, we chose to use boneless rib-eye, New York strip steaks, or filet mignons for their juicy and meaty texture, but a less expensive cut is flank steak, which can easily be substituted.

Remove the steaks from the refrigerator and let them sit, covered, for about 20 minutes before grilling to let them come to room temperature.

Preheat your grill to high. Brush each of the steaks on both sides with oil and salt and pepper. Place the steaks on the grill and cook until they are golden brown and slightly charred in areas, about 4-5 minutes on each side for medium-rare. Cook the steaks to the desired doneness. 

Transfer the steaks to a clean cutting board or platter, cover loosely with foil, and let rest 5 minutes before slicing. Slice meat against the grain.
