Make perfectly grilled steaks in three easy steps.

What you’ll need: 

  • Ingredients for our Texas T-Bones, including the mustard butter mixture to coat each steak
  • Gas or charcoal grill 
  • Small bowl
How to: 

1. Heat gas or charcoal grill. Trim fat from steaks to ¼-inch thickness. Rub garlic on beef.

3. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Serve with mustard butter or add different flavors with one of these other toppings: 

Blue Cheese Butter: Mix ½ cup butter, softened, with ¼ cup crumbled blue cheese. 

Horseradish-Sour Cream: Mix ½ cup sour cream with ¼ cup creamy horseradish sauce. 

Savory Butter: Top each steak with a pat of Savory Butter. 

Southwestern Butter: Mix ½ cup butter, softened, with ½ teaspoon chili powder, ¼ teaspoon ground cumin and 2 tablespoons salsa. 

Expert Tips: 

  • Crush peppercorns in resealable food-storage plastic bag using rolling pin or meat mallet.
  • Let steaks stand at room temperature 30 minutes before grilling. Cold steaks will contract and become tough. 
  • To grill other steak cuts, such as tenderloin, top loin steak or rib steak, see our Grilling Timetable.
