    Elly in Canada's Note:

    A classic Tuscan way of cooking T-bone steak is a real treat! Although it is possible to cook it on a gas barbecue, it is much better — and more authentic — when cooked over charcoal or an open fire. Source: Steak by Fiona Beckett

    1. 1
      Trim any excess fat from steak and pat dry with paper towels.
    2. 2
      Pour olive oil into a shallow dish and add garlic and rosemary. Turn the steak in the oil, ensuring there is some garlic and rosemary on each side.
    3. 3
      Cover dish with a double layer of plastic wrap and let marinate in the refrigerator for 24 hours, turning the meat a couple of times.
    4. 4
      Bring the meat to room temperature before cooking.
    5. 5
      Preheat charcoal barbecue, when coals are covered with white ash you are ready to cook! (I have made this on a gas barbeque, it is delicious).
    6. 6
      Take the meat out of the marinade and remove any pieces of garlic or rosemary from the steak. Pat dry with paper towels.
    7. 7
      Place the steak on a rack about 3 inches above the coals and cook for about 4 minutes.
    8. 8
      Turn steak over and cook for another 3 minutes, steak will be rare.
    9. 9
      Cook for a couple of minutes longer on each side for medium-rare, but this is traditionally served rare.
    10. 10
      Transfer to a warm plate, season both sides with salt and pepper, then let the meat rest for 5 minutes.
    11. 11
      To serve - stand the steak upright with the bone at the bottom and, using a sharp knife, remove the meat on either side of the bone in one piece.
    12. 12
      Cut each piece into thick slices. Divide the slices between 2 serving plates.
    13. 13
      Pour the meat juices that have accumulated over the sliced steak.
    14. 14
      Drizzle with a little of the best extra virgin olive oil you can lay your hands on!
    15. 15
      Serve with sauteed potatoes, an arugula salad and lemon wedges if desired, accompanied by a glass of Chianti Classico or your favourite red wine.

      Delicious marinade. I only marinaded the steaks for 12 hours. I was impressed with how flavorful the the rosemary flavor was absorbed by the steak. I think this marinade would be divine on lamb chops or for that fact, a leg of lamb too! Made for the G&BB Cookathon in Memory of Elly's DH Jim.
