DIRECTIONS

  • Select steaks approx 1 inch thick. Allow steaks to come to room temperature so they cook quickly and evenly.
  • Place slightly softened butter, garlic, cilantro, paprika and lemon juice in food processor, and pulse until well blended. Refrigerate resulting herb butter.
  • Salt and pepper steaks.
  • Grill steaks uncovered on hot bbq for 5 minutes on one side. Don't worry if it flames a bit.
  • After 5 minutes, turn steaks, place lid on BBQ, close top vent half-way and cook about 8 minutes more. During this period, be sure to turn steaks every two minutes for even cooking. This should give you medium-rare to medium doneness.
  • Remove steaks from grill.
  • Place large dollops of herb butter on steaks, and allow steaks to rest 5 minutes on plate, covered, so juices get re-absorbed. This 5 minutes is a great time to use the BBQ to grill some veggies. I make grilled zucchini, yellow squash and portabella mushrooms. After grilling veggies, add some of the herb butter to them.
  • For best flavor, use a charcoal grill with mesquite natural charcoal, but you can use a gas grill.
