Gas Grilled New York Strip Steak
Learning how to grill New York steak on a gas grill just got a whole lot easier with this recipe. No more charred outsides and raw insides. Instead, you’ll always count on pulling a perfectly seared piece of meat right from your Primate.
When you’re hankering for a hunk of steak, this recipe will put you 30 minutes away from propane-fueled nirvana.
- 1.5" New York Strip Steak at Room Temperature
- Kosher Salt
- Black Pepper
- Olive Oil
Turn on your Primate, or gas grill, to medium/high heat. Rub your steak liberally with olive oil. Next, as your grill comes up to temperature, apply a generous amount of Salt and Pepper to the steak. Make sure to cover the sides as well as the top and bottom.
Place your meat on the grill for roughly six minutes on either side. Put it in a central position, evenly spaced from other food on the grill. The time on the grill can vary depending on the thickness of your meat, the heat setting on your grill and other factors as well. To ensure it is the exact doneness you desire, make sure you have a digital instant read meat probe ready to check the internal temperature. A medium rare steak should be pulled off the grill at about 130-135 degrees.
Finally, allow your steak to rest on the counter for up to 10-minutes. This will assist with keeping the steak as juicy as possible.
Now enjoy your awesome meal!
