  • 1 tbsp. ginger, peeled and chopped

1 Food Prep

Combine the marinade ingredients into a food processor, and pulse until the mixture is blended. Place the steaks in a resealable gallon-size bag and pour the marinade over the steaks. Marinate for 3–5 hours in the refrigerator.

2 Grill Prep

Fuel: We recommend Kingsford® High Heat Briquets for searing and consistent high heat grilling.

Method: Two-Zone Method

Temp: 400°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. 

  • Place your steaks directly over the coal side of the grill and sear for 2–3 minutes per side with the lid closed. 

  • Once seared, move the steaks onto indirect, the cooler side of the grate and close the lid for 2–11 minutes, until the steaks reach an internal temperature of 145°F on a digital meat thermometer. 

  • Remove the steaks from the grill and let them rest on a cutting board, covered loosely with aluminum foil, for 5 minutes. 

  • To serve, drizzle the steaks with chimichurri and leftover meat juices from resting and carving, and savor every mouth-watering bite.
