Ingredients for Steak on Gas Grill
For The Steak
- 1 1/2-inch of thick ribeye, bone-in or out (go for about 1 ½ pound without the bone)
- ¾ teaspoon of coarse sea salt or kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon of freshly ground pepper
For The Herb Butter Sauce
- 4 tablespoons of butter.
- Leaves from 4 sprigs of thyme
- 1 tablespoon of minced fresh rosemary.
- 1 clove of garlic (minced).
- 1 shallot of about half the size of a golf ball (minced)
Laid-Out Instructions for Steak on Gas Grill Recipe
Trim the Fat
- The first thing you need to do is to get rid of the exterior layer of fat from the ribeye. The inner marbling will relish the meat.
- And, on the other hand, the exterior fat layer will create flare-ups on the grill, which in turn will add a burnt taste to the steak. Do not mistake this burnt taste for it being seared.
Season the Steak and Refrigerate
- You can now move to the next step, which is for you to get a paper towel and dab the steak dry with it, as this helps get rid of moisture from the surface, which will help you achieve a good char.
- Then, proceed to season each side of the steak with salt and pepper. Make sure you massage them fairly.
- You can now put the steak in the fridge. Make sure it is uncovered and allow it to be in the fridge for an hour at a minimum and 48 hours at most.
Make the Herbed Butter
- Get a small saucepan and add butter, garlic, herbs, and shallots to it. Then proceed to melt them, but this should be done over low heat.
- Allow this to continue for 10 minutes, at a minimum, before you proceed to place the steak on the gas grill.
- Before you proceed to grill the steak, you can make this butter up to 2 hours ahead of time. If you are to do this, make sure you cover it and refrigerate it.
- You are to reheat the butter gently to allow it to melt again before you proceed to place the steaks on the gas grill.
Warm Up the Grill
- You can now warm up the gas grill. And, to do that, you will need to heat the grill to 450 degrees Fahrenheit and make sure two of the burners are going.
- The timeframe for this should be about 10 minutes. Afterward, turn down one of the burners to medium. This will help create two cooking zones.
Cook and Baste the Steak
- Place the steak on the hottest side of the gas grill. Then, proceed to close the lid and char it for 2 minutes.
- Afterward, you are to open the lid, turn the steak over, and then proceed to baste it with the melted herb butter and herbs.
- Then, close the lid again, and cook it for another 2 minutes. After that, you are to turn the steak over again, and then move it to the lower heat side of the gas grill.
- After that, you are to baste the steak again with butter. For the next 6 minutes, you are to continue turning the steak over and basting it every two minutes.
- Do not forget to also close the lid between each turnover. For a medium-rare steak, you will move the grilled steak to a clean platter after it has spent a total of 10 minutes on the gas grill.
- The internal temperature of the grilled steak should read 137 degrees Fahrenheit to 140 degrees Fahrenheit.
- You are to baste the grilled steak again with butter. If you also want your steak to be more well-done, you can continue with the cooking for a longer time.
Allow the Steak to Cool Off
- You are to allow the steak to cool off for 5 minutes, which will also cause the internal temperature of the steak to increase by a few degrees. The juices will also get redistributed.
Slice and Serve the Steak
- Get a grain, and proceed to slice the grilled steak against it. And, if you want, you can also pour the remaining herb butter sauce (if you have any left) over the top of the grilled steak.
- Then, proceed to serve it and enjoy it.
