Grilled steak with a very simple marinade that's full of flavor, but doesn't overpower the flavor of good quality meat. You only need 4 ingredients, including the steak, and it takes very little time to prepare and cook so it's great for unannounced guests. When I moved to the country a year ago, my best friend gave me a "Kill it and Grill it" birthday gift - an Old Henry .22 repeating rifle and a gas grill. Thank goodness there was this recipe and a steak included so we didn't starve!

Directions

  1. Place steak on deep plate or in pie pan.
  2. Sprinkle lightly with garlic powder, too much will kill your meat's flavor.
  3. Cover very generously with seasoning salt, you can't add to much of this.
  4. Add plenty of worsteschire sauce, making sure it gets through the seasonings to the steak.
  5. Flip steak over and repeat all 3 ingredients in order.
  6. Let marinate for 20 - 45 minutes, flipping over at half time.
  7. Heat your grill on the highest setting for 5 - 10 minutes.
  8. Add steak once grill is hot and pour 1/2 of the remaining marinade on the steak - be careful not to let the grill flame up.
  9. Cook for approximately 3 minutes and rotate the steak 180 degrees.
  10. Cook for another 3 minutes and turn the steak over, pour the remaining marinade on at this time, again watch out for flames.
  11. Cook for 3 minutes and rotate the steak 180 degrees.
  12. Your steak is done when you see the meat starting to separate from the bone, but cut into it to check for individual preference on color.
  13. These instructions are for a 2 - 2 1/2 lb. porterhouse steak, about 1 1/2 - 2 inches thick, cooked on a regular gas grill, preferably to a rare (warm red) state. If cooking for guests sharing the steak, you can always cook a little longer in the microwave for those that like the center pink or well done.
  14. Serve hot with your favorite red wine and good cheese, light salads & herb pasta or mashed potatoes and steamed veggies aren't a bad idea either.
  15. Best part is any leftovers make great cold steak salads, yummy toppings for nachos or breakfast fillings for tortillas.
