  • 2 Ribeye or New York Strip steaks about 1- 1 ½ in thickness
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter


  • Allow the steaks to come to room temperature for 30 minutes. Then pat them dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper and brush with oil on both sides.
  • Preheat an outdoor grill to high heat. Place the steaks on the grill and cook with the lid open for 4 minutes on one side without touching.
  • Use tongs to flip the steaks and cook for 2-4 more minutes on the other side, depending on desired level of doneness (130°F for medium rare or 140°F for medium well), keeping in mind that the temperature will continue to rise about 5 degrees after you remove from heat and the steaks rest.
  • Transfer the steaks to a plate or cutting board, add the butter on top and tent with aluminum foil, if desired. Allow them to rest for 5 minutes before slicing or serving.


Tip: Let your steak come to room temperature before grilling for more even cooking.
