Grilled Beef Strip Steak with Homemade Seasoning Rub

Grilled Beef Strip Steak
with Homemade Seasoning Rub

This “Wicked Easy” recipe dives into the sizzling world of grilled beef steaks, where smoky seasoning flavors and juicy bites take center stage!

The key to an awesome grilled steak lies in selecting the right cut, as different cuts offer distinct textures and flavors. I suggest using well-marbled cuts like a ribeye or New York strip for that perfect balance of tenderness and rich beefy taste.

The next step is to season both side of your steaks with at least salt and pepper. However, for the best results, use a dry rub! There are store-bought varieties out there, but it is so easy to make you own homemade variety that you can customize to your own taste! I have included the recipe for my homemade steak seasoning below which includes the flavor trinity of sweet, savory, and spicy!

After patting the steaks dry with a paper towel, apply approximately 1 tablespoon of the homemade steak seasoning rub to each side. Then let the steaks rest at room temperature for at least 30 minutes as this not only allows the seasonings to flavor the meat but helps get a good sear when the meat is not cold.

Place the steaks on a preheated high heat grill for the perfect sear.  After marking both sides, reduce the heat to medium and cook to the desired doneness. Using a thermometer ensures your steak is cooked to perfection. For medium-rare, pull the steaks at 135*F which is about 5 to 6 minutes on each side depending on the thickness. For medium, pull the steaks at 145*F. 

Once the steaks are cooked to the desired doneness, remove from the heat and let them rest for 5 to 10 minutes. This crucial step allows the juices to redistribute, resulting in a tender and succulent bite! I love to serve steak with my homemade Chimichurri Sauce (click here for recipe).

Now that you know how to cook the perfect grilled beef steak, it is time to think about accompaniments. From the classic mashed potatoes (click here for crispy hash brown recipe), to grilled vegetables (click here for grilled asparagus recipe), or a fresh garden salad (click here for a simple lemon vinaigrette dressing), choose sides that complement the rich flavors of the steak!
