Steak On Hot Coals
The Ultimate Direct Grilling
by Andrea Alden
Place the steak on the hot coals
- 4 of your favourite steaks, at least 1-inch thick
(can be NY strip, or eye of round etc.)
- 2 tsp. pepper
- 2 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. chili powder
- 1 tsp. garlic herbs
- 1 clove of garlic
Let me just start by saying that you have to wait until the coals are perfectly lit and ready to go, that is what takes the time in this recipe. That is why I have the * beside the 35 minutes. Light your charcoal using the chimney starter, or if you have a gas grill, use the burners to light your charcoal in the cast iron charcoal tray like I did.
In a small bowl, combine the salt, pepper, herbs and chili powder.
Remove the steaks from the fridge and season them well with the spice combination. Allow them to come to room temperature.
When the coals are ready, place the steaks right in/on the coals. Let them cook for 2 minutes. Flip them over and let them cook another 2 minutes for medium rare. For more cooked through, you can let your steaks sit for 1 to 2 more minutes per side.
After the 2 minutes per side, remove the steaks and let them rest under foil for at least 5 minutes before slicing and serving with a fantastic salad and baked potato.

These came out amazing. Most of us wanted the perfect medium rare steak. That is what we got. Many of the people that ate with us said that they would be making their steaks like this from now on. Try it yourself, this weekend. No seriously, you NEED to do this as soon as possible. Steak on hot coals is absolutely amazing.
