Peppered New York Strip Steak

One of my originals. Few ingredients and simple yet folks will ask what you did. I have this posted on also. This is not as hot (spicy) as it sounds. The peppers season the steaks just right. Edit 09/25/09 : Lime Pepper seems to not be available latley. You can zest a lime and dice the zest finely and add to fresh black pepper to get the same effect.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place pepper corns in mortar and pestle, coarsely crush until most of the corns are broken (you can use a coffee grinder or food processor for this step).
  2. Cover one side of steaks with crushed pepper and press in firmly, sprinkle with lime pepper seasoning and salt.
  3. Turn steaks over and repeat the same process .
  4. Place in refrigerator for 3 hours, uncovered.
  5. Heat grill, brush grate with vegetable or olive oil and place steaks over hottest part of fire for 3 minutes, turn the steaks over for another 3 minutes.
  6. Move the steaks to a cooler part of grill and continue to cook until done to your liking.
  7. Serve with steak sauce and lots of beer.
  8. This is not as hot (spicy) as it sounds. The peppers season the steaks just right.

I enjoyed all of the pepper & the slight bite from the lime. I had lime pepper on hand so was able to use it on my ribeye. I pan fried the steak to medium and the crunchy, peppery coating was excellent for this pepper lover. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I didn't see lime pepper at the grocery store and didn't have time to go to the wholesale club to look for it, so I followed Cheri's idea of just sprinkling with lime juice. I probably should have used a little more, as I didn't really taste the lime part. I also added some garlic powder to the mix. It really came out just fabulous, and made a perfect treat for Mother's Day.

We tried this for dinner tonight. I don't have lime pepper, I sprinkled lime jc., on each side of each steak. No steak sauce required these steaks stand out by themselves. Of course we did have the (dark) beer as recommended.
