DIRECTIONS

  • This steak is best served with the center red/pink, it is at it's most tender state at that point.
  • Place steak in sealable plastic bag.
  • Add remaining ingredients, except butter, and place in refrigerator for 6 to 12 hours to marinate.
  • Turn bag over at least four times during marination.
  • Grill over hot hardwood coals, basting frequently with marinade, for about 8-10 minutes a side.
  • Check for doneness.
  • When done cut steak on diagonal across the grain.
  • Serve with remaining marinade that has been heated to a boil with butter added.
  • The flavors can be intensified by using your favorite smoking chips on the cooking coals (I use sassafras, hickory, or apple).
  • Leftovers make excellent sandwiches when topped with bacon, tomato and melted cheese (Swiss, Cheddar, Smoked Gouda or Blue) and remaining marinade drizzled on top.
  • I store the leftovers in the marinade to keep the steak moist and flavorful.
