Grilled Strip Steak:

  • Prep time:  1 hour 15 mins
  • Cook time:  20 mins
  • Total time:  1 hour 35 mins
  • Serves: 2 Steaks 


  • 2 T-Bone Steaks, strip removed
  • 1½ tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground thyme, plus additional to garnish
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon corn starch
  • Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus additional for basting
  • 1 teaspoon butter, as topping
  • Flat leaf parsley, to garnish


  • Whisk together sugar, thyme, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika and corn starch in a small bowl. Then set aside.
  • With chef’s knife, remove strip steak by carefully cutting meat from long-side of the t-bone.
  • Liberally apply dry rub to all portions of the steak.
  • Wrap tightly with plastic and refrigerate for 1 hour, or up to 4 hours.
  • Minutes prior to grilling, remove the steaks from the refrigerator, resting meat until near room temperature.
  • Meanwhile, preheat the grill to high for indirect grilling, leaving one side of the grill off. Generously brush the grates with olive oil.
  • Sear the steaks for 4 minutes per side.
  • Move the steaks to the unlit part of the grill, cooking until the desired internal temperature is reached, basting intermittently with olive oil and flipping every 5-10 minutes.
  • Remove the steaks from the grill and tent under tin foil for 5 minutes, allowing the meat to reabsorb its juices.
  • To serve, season additionally to taste, top with light dollop of butter, and parsley to garnish.


  • This recipe calls for thick strip steaks. Steaks that are thinner will take less time so plan accordingly.
