2 Grill Prep

Fuel: We recommend Kingsford® Original Charcoal Briquets

Method: Direct-Heat Grilling

Temp: 375°F (Medium Heat)

3 The Cook

  • When you’re at temp, put cooking oil on a folded paper towel. Grab the oiled paper towel with long-handled tongs and oil the grate thoroughly.

  • Heat your cast iron with 2 tbsp. of olive oil. Once heated, add your veggies to the skillet and season with some of the rub mix.

  • While your veggies are cooking, remove your steak from the marinade and lightly season with the rub. Place your steak on the grill and cook each side for 5-7 minutes.

  • As your steak finishes cooking, remove your veggies from the skillet and set aside, covered until you’re ready to serve.
  • Once your steak reaches an internal temperature of 145ºF, remove it from the grill and allow it to rest for 5 minutes. Then, cut against the grain and serve with your veggies.
