Info
This recipe from Weber’s Art of the Grill was short on prep time, but long on flavor. The prep could be done in the time the grill was heating up. The steaks were seasoned with kosher salt and whole black peppercorns and coffee beans, which had been coarsely ground in a spice grinder. The steaks were direct grilled over high heat to a moist medium. These N.Y. strip steaks were very tender and quite spicy with a pepper in the foreground and a nice coffee flavor in the background. Don’t serve these to someone who favors bland food.
