  • Lightly brush the steaks with oil and season evenly with 2 teaspoons of the salt and the pepper. Allow the steaks to stand at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes before grilling.
  • Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat {350° to 450°F). If you're using a charcoal grill, keep a small part of the charcoal grate clear of briquettes as a safety zone of indirect heat.
