  • 1 tspn salt plus more for seasoning
  • 1 tspn cornstarch
  • 4 rib-eye steaks about 1 ½" thick, around 1 pound each
  • pepper


  • In a small bowl, combine the salt and cornstarch.
  • Pat the steaks dry and rub with the salt mixture.
  • Place the steaks on a wire rack and chill in the freezer for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Meanwhile, build a fire on your charcoal grill and clean the grate for when those steaks are ready to go.
  • Season the steaks with pepper.
  • Grill for 4 to 8 minutes per side (for your desired doneness - 4 is my lucky number).
  • Remove from the grill and tent with foil. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
  • To serve, slice thin on an angle against the grain.
