Instructions

  1. Whisk together all the ingredients for the marinade variation you choose.
  2. Place the steaks and marinade in a covered glass dish or Ziploc bag.  Marinade for an hour at room temperature or up to 12 hours in the fridge.  Remove steaks from the fridge 20-30 minutes before cooking.
  3. Preheat the BBQ on high until heated to 450-500F.  
  4. Remove the steaks from the marinade and pat them down with paper towels.  Either oil the grill or the steaks.  Season steaks with salt and pepper.
  5. Grill steaks to your preference.  Medium has an internal temperature of 140F (approx. 4 min per side for a 1 inch thick steak).  Rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Notes

  • The marinade recipes are for 1 lb of meat which is approx. 2 average size steaks.  Just scale up for a larger quantity of meat.
  • A good steak starts with good quality meat.  Buy locally if possible or try out a quality delivery service: ButcherBox (US) or truLOCAL (Canada)

Tips:

  • Remove steaks from the fridge 20-30 minutes before grilling for more even cooking.
  • Grill steaks over high heat (450-500F grill).
  • Pull steaks off grill 5 F before desired doneness since temperature will continue to rise a bit while resting.  See chart in the post.  
  • Use a digital meat thermometer to ensure perfectly cooked steaks.
  • Allow steaks to rest (transfer grilled steaks to a cutting board or plate, tent loosely with foil and rest for 5 min to allow juices to redistribute).
