Absolutely delicious. So simple yet so elegant. Be sure to use the best cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil available and only kosher salt.

I generally cook very lean steaks and on an indoor contact grill which can leave them dry and pretty unappealing. I tried this recipe last night and the difference was remarkable! When they were done, I scored them lightly before adding lemon juice and more EVOO then tented them with foil to rest. They were moister, had more visual appeal and the hint of lemon was just spot on! Thanks for sharing your recipe! I will use it often!
