Recipe: Ultimate grilled buffalo steak with crushed peppercorn crust

Ingredients

  • 1 steak, bone-in, at least 1 1/4-inch thick preferred
  • Olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons whole black peppercorns

Instructions

  1. Brush both sides of beef with olive oil. Liberally sprinkle both sides with kosher or sea salt. With a mallet, pound peppercorns until you have an assortment of fine, medium and coarsely ground pepper, and rub into beef. Let meat sit at room temperature 1-2 hours.
  2. Oil grill grates. Prepare one side of gas or charcoal grill to high heat, and the other side to medium-high heat. Sprinkle additional salt over beef. Place steaks on the hottest side of grill and sear for 1 1/2-2 minutes on each side. (To create a diamond pattern on the meat, rotate 45 degrees after 1 minute.) After searing meat, move steaks to a slightly cooler side of the grill and cook to desired level of doneness. (For medium rare, about 3-4 additional minutes per side.)
  3. Remove steaks from grill and let sit 10-15 minutes.

Prior grill rest time: 1-2 hours

Grill Time: 9-11 minutes for medium-rare

After-grill rest time: 10-15 minutes

Number of servings (yield): 1 big steak (enough for two)
