Remove steaks from grill and allow to rest for at least two minutes on a warm plate or platter. (The steaks will continue to cook while resting and raise to approximately 140°F for medium rare.)
Easy Grilled New York Strip Steak
Some of the best things in life are simple, just like a New York strip steak recipe. For a high-end dinner at home, simply fire up your grill, season your steaks and sear away.
8 ounce New York strip steak, 1 inch thick
freshly ground black pepper
Remove steaks from packaging and dry with paper towels.
Lightly season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Rest for 30 minutes.
Place steaks on hot preheated grill (450°F to 650°F) for approximately three minutes per side to make sear marks. (Use tongs to turn.)
Depending on thickness of steaks and desired doneness, you may also rotate the steaks about 90 degrees to form cross-hatch sear marks.
Turn the heat down to medium and move steaks away from the direct heat, either to the warming rack or to the other side of the grill so the steak can finish cooking.
Check for doneness using an instant-read thermometer (130°F for rare doneness).
