Grilled Steak with Garlic-Parmesan Crust
This recipe is a fun spin on an American classic, the grilled steak, and it proof that great food can be super simple to prepare.
- 2 lbs. boneless New York strip or Delmonico steaks (2 or 3 steaks)
- 1 Tbsp. butter or margarine
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. (Alternatively, preheat a grill pan or heavy skillet.)
- With the lid closed sear (grill without moving) the steaks on one side (about 4 minutes for medium-rare, 5 for medium).
- Flip the steaks, spread a light coating of butter or margarine on top of the cooked side of each steak, and sprinkle each steak generously with Parmesan cheese and then lightly with garlic powder. Then cook the steaks for another 4 minutes or to desired doneness.
- Remove the steaks to a plate or cutting board (if time allows, let the meat rest on the cutting board for 5 minutes before slicing it). Slice the steaks into strips to serve them.
Do Ahead or Delegate: Grate the Parmesan cheese if necessary. Scramble Flavor Booster: After flipping the steaks, sprinkle them with black pepper in addition to the garlic powder. Tip: If you need a way to remember which steaks or hamburgers are cooked to a certain doneness (ex, medium-rare, well-done, etc.), use color-coded toothpicks to distinguish them.
