Cooking Tips
Ideal for
  • Grill or Broil
  • Skillet

This cut is excellent on the grill or seared to perfection in a hot skillet. As noted below, finish in the oven to achieve the precise doneness that you desire. 

  • For the best flavor, season the beef at least 4 hours prior to cooking. Remove the cut from the refrigerator one hour before cooking to allow it to come up to room temperature. 
  • Grill or pan-sear the cut to medium-high heat, about 1 ½  minutes per side. If you're grilling, watch for flare-ups and rotate the cut to make a cross-hatch mark. 
  • Finish the steaks on a higher rack in the barbecue with the lid closed or in the oven on 350º F to your desired temperature. Check doneness with a Thermapen Mk4 for quick and accurate reads on internal temperatures. 
  • It's important to let your steaks rest for 5 to 10 minutes prior to serving or cutting. This allows the temperature to equalize internally and allows the steak to "hold" its juices. 
  • If hosting a crowd, sear the meat ahead of time without finishing it and then refrigerate. When you are ready to serve your guests, finish the steaks at 350º F.
