Grilled New York Strip Steak with Spicy Rub

Yield: 4 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes


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
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  • 4 1 1/2-inch-thick New York strip steaks
  1. In a small bowl, mix together the spice rub ingredients. Trim steaks of most of the external fat. Sprinkle both sides of steaks generously with rub.
  2. Heat a gas grill. Turn one burner to high, another to medium, and another to off. (For charcoal grill, see tips below).
  3. Sear steaks on hottest area of grill for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Move to medium-hot (or unheated area of grill) if flare-ups occur. When steaks are seared and grill-marked,m move them to 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 cook until done to your liking.
  4. Remove steaks to a platter and cover lightly with foil. Let meat 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.
