Here are your grilling instructions:

You will be grilling your steaks over high heat and with the lid open. Whether charcoal or gas it doesn’t matter as long as there’s high heat. The time you’ll be cooking the steaks for is approximately eight minutes per New York steak.


Here are your step-by-step grilling directions:

1. Approximately forty-five minutes before you’re ready to grill your New York steaks take them out of the fridge and rub them in garlic salt and fresh ground pepper.

2. Once you’ve done this we recommend leaving them on the counter so they can warm to room temperature.

3. Next preheat your grill on high and since you’ll be cooking your steaks directly on the grills surface, you’ll want to make sure it’s nice and clean.

5. To test the necessary “high heat,” hold your hand about two inches above the grill and see if the temperature is right. On average, for gas and charcoal grilling you shouldn’t be able to hold your hand over the heat for more than five seconds. If the heat feels right, you’re ready to start cooking the steaks.

6. Next, place the New York steaks on the grill and it is extremely important to never pierce the meat. This will let out flavorful juices and can dry the meat out. Our recommendation is to use flat tongs if you have them!

7. Now, after about two to three minutes use the tongs to pick up the steaks and rotate them ninety degrees. This simple movement allows you to mark the steaks with those recognizable grill marks.

8. After two more minutes you’re ready to flip the steaks. Pick them up one by one and flip them over. An important note is that this is the only time you’re going to flip the steaks.

9. After another two minutes, rotate the New York steaks another ninety degrees. This will give you matching grill marks on both sides of your steaks.

10. Lastly, grill them for a final two minutes and they should be ready for removal. Take the grilled steaks off the barbeque and let them rest for at least five minutes before serving. This should give you a medium rare finish but for those who like a well-done steak, you can stick them back on the grill for a few more minutes.


We at hope this simple recipe was helpful and we look forward to you sharing your experiences on your patio! Here’s to living the grape life! Cheers!
