    Northwest Lynnie's Note:

    This recipe contains a flavorful and simple technique for grilling beef steak, which also works well on pork ribs. The result is savory, juicy meat.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 rib eye steaks or 4 New York strip steaks or 4 sirloin steaks (1 1/2" thick)
    • 1 cup hot water
    • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper (or to taste)
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt


    1. 1
      Stir the hot water, salt, and cayenne pepper together and let stand, covered.
    2. 2
      Bring steaks to room temperature.
    3. 3
      Pat them dry with paper towels.
    4. 4
      Grill steaks over direct heat, basting each side twice with a small spoonful of the pepper mixture during grilling.
    5. 5
      Cook the steaks for about 10 minutes per side, depending on their thickness, the heat of your flame, and your preference for degree of doneness.
    6. 6
      I prefer to grill with charcoal for its added flavor.

      Delicious steaks! I halved the recipe and used 2 New York Strip steaks. I used "hot" cayenne pepper and the steaks had a nice "kick". Will make again! Thanks Northwest Lynnie for the recipe!

      I love simple, delicious recipes so when I spotted this one I knew I had to try it. I cooked two rib-eyes, using this technique and they were great. They don't really LOOK much different than a plain, grilled steak but you'll notice the difference with your first bite! There's a nice, subtle (to us, but we're chili-heads) zing from the cayenne. Thanks for posting this Lynnie, I enjoyed doing something different with grilled steak!
