Grilled New York Strip Steak with Spicy Rub
- 3 tablespoons paprika (preferably Hungarian or Spanish)
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 tablespoon dried oregano
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
- Four 1½-inch New York strip steaks
- In a small bowl, mix together the spice rub ingredients. Trim the steaks of most of the external fat. Sprinkle both sides of the steaks generously with rub.
- Heat a gas grill. Turn one burner to high, another to medium, and another to off. (For a charcoal grill, see tips below).
- Sear the steaks on the hottest area of the grill for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Move to medium-hot (or an unheated area of the grill) if flare-ups occur. When the steaks are seared and grill-marked, move them to a medium-hot area and rotate to create cross-hatched grill marks. Cook for another 4 or 5 minutes, then test for doneness with an instant-read thermometer: 120 to 125°F for rare, 130 to 135°F for medium rare. Continue to grill until done to your liking.
- Remove the steaks to a platter and cover lightly with foil. Let the steaks rest for 5 minutes or so before serving.
- If you slash the edges of the steaks in one or two places, it will prevent the steaks from curling up while grilling.
- If you have any leftover rub, it can be stored in a close, covered container for up to 3 months.
- If using a charcoal grill, arrange coals into 3 areas: a hot area, a medium-hot area and an area with no heat.
