Who Doesn’t Love A Good Juicy Steak!
Seriously, who doesn’t love a good juicy steak!? I am salivating while writing this post. Since the last month, I’ve been putting out a lot of content about knife sharpening, honing etc. and I figured now would be a great time to throw in one of my best t bone steak recipe to keep things exciting. With the holidays just around the corner, and family gatherings being the theme of the season, why not do things differently and skip the turkey dinner for a seriously kick-ass T Bone steak? If you follow what I am telling you to a T, you’ll have understood why I love this recipe as much as I do. It’s a recipe that is totally worth freezing your butt off for, even when it’s cold outside and you don’t want to fire up the barbecue.
Step 1: Your Visit To The Butcher
Preparing this recipe isn’t just about throwing on a bunch of ingredients, grilling and expecting the steak to taste like flowers, unicorns and rainbows. If you want this to be the best t bone steak recipe you’ll have ever had, then you’ll need to request the butcher to do his/her part and cut the steak accordingly. Here’s what you want: Ask the butcher to provide you steaks cut to half an inch (1/2”). The thickness should be no more! By experimenting, I’ve found that the 1/2” works best for a couple of reasons: Firstly, it’s quick and easy to marinate, and secondly, it’s easier to cook and manage on the barbecue. This isn’t a big ask, and your butcher should be able to accommodate accordingly.
Step 2: Preparation & Marination
This step is what differentiates the other recipes from what I think is the best t bone steak recipe ever! And I’ve tried a whole lot of steaks cooked in every which way, but this puts all of those to shame (once you try it, you’ll see why). Okay first things first, give the steaks a nice, quick wash in lukewarm water and leave them on some paper towels to dry. Next, we will be preparing a marinade to paste onto the steaks. Here’s what you’ll need:
- One tablespoonful of freshly blended ginger. Throw some large ginger chunks into the blender with a little water to give it some consistency (I do this with a lot of ginger, so I don’t have to repeat the process again next time).
- Four tablespoonfuls of Worcestershire sauce. Now, some people have a preference on which brand to use (Lea & Perrins being a favorite), but I’ve found that mostly all of them work well for me.
- One tablespoonful of red chili powder. Adjust to 3/4 or 1/2 if you absolutely can’t handle chili. However, I don’t recommend you doing this, as chili is a very important part of this recipe.
- One tablespoonful of salt.
- Two freshly squeezed limes.
Mix all the ingredients above in a bowl. The result should be a consistent marinade ready to apply on your steaks. Important: The measurements provided above are for four (4) 0.5 lb steaks, 1/2” thick. If you are making more or less than this, you should scale the measurements accordingly. If your marinade bowl is big enough, you could throw the steaks directly into the marinade and starting rubbing it all in. Be generous and apply a hearty serving onto each steak! Take your time and work that marinade in as much as you can. Place your bowl in the fridge and leave the marinated steaks to sit for at least 24 hours (48 hours would be even better). This helps all the flavors really soak and infuse into the steak.
Step 3: Barbecue & Serving Suggestions
So the steaks are all marinated at this point and ready to barbecue, great! Pull them out of the fridge about an hour and a half before you start barbecuing, and let them sit at room temperature. When you’re ready, fire the barbecue up, clean the grill, and throw the steaks on. Set on medium to low heat, and depending on how you like your steak done, cook and remove accordingly. For this particular recipe, I find a medium cooked steak to be the best tasting.
Add some freshly squeezed lime juice onto the steak before serving, and voila!
