There's no special secret or complicated techniques needed to cook the perfect steak. Start with a great cut of meat for the very best results. After that, you just need heat, seasoning and a little patience.
- 6 boneless rib-eye steaks
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Kosher salt
- Flaky sea salt or fleur de sel
- Freshly ground black pepper
1. Prepare barbecue for medium-high heat or preheat a grill pan over medium-high heat.
2. Pat steak dry with paper towels. Lightly coat steaks with oil and season liberally with salt.
3. Grill steaks, turning them over every 2 minutes, for a total of about 8 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into the center of steak reads 130 F for medium-rare doneness. Transfer steak to a rack set over baking sheet and let it rest for 3 minutes for cutting.
4. Cut steaks crosswise into thin slices. Sprinkle with flaky salt and freshly ground black pepper. Serve with any resting juices to keep it moist.
