Florentine-Style Steak Recipe May 30 2018



Florentine-Style Steak - Ingredients


(4) 2-3lb Porterhouse or T-Bone steaks (about 1 1/2 inches thick)

4 cloves garlic, smashed


Freshly ground pepper*

1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

1 Tbsp dried lemon zest

1 lemon, cut into wedges

Vegetable oil


Florentine-Style Steak - Coaching Points


Refrigerate the steaks, uncovered, at least 4 hours or overnight.


Prepare a grill for indirect heat: for gas, preheat to medium high, 30 minutes, then turn off the burners on one side and turn the other burners to medium low. For charcoal, once the coals ash over, push them to one side. Rub the steaks with the garlic and let sit at room temperature, 30 minutes.


Brush the grill with vegetable oil. Sear the steaks over direct heat until charred on the bottom, 5 to 10 minutes. Turn, season with salt and pepper, and char the other side, 5 to 10 more minutes.


Turn the steaks again and transfer to the cooler side of the grill with the smaller ends away from the heat. Season the steaks with salt, pepper, and lemon zest and grill, turning every 2 minutes, until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat registers 125 degrees for medium-rare, (8 to 12 minutes).


Place the steaks on a cutting board and let cool for 10 minutes before slicing. Season with salt and pepper and drizzle with the olive oil. Serve with lemon wedges.
