This steak is a real showstopper! So easy and, despite the copious sugar rub, quite savory and juicy! My family's favorite way to grill steak. This steak comes out perfectly mid-rare every time. Always a winner. Very impressive way to cook steak. The sugar forms a crust sealing in the juices. There is no sugar taste!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place steak in a large bowl. Knead sugar into meat to form a thick crust. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let sit at room temperature; 3 to 4 hours.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil the grate.

  • Cook steak on preheated grill until each side is caramelized, about 10 minutes per side.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil; place steak on prepared baking sheet.

  • Roast in the preheated oven until steak is starting to firm and is reddish-pink and juicy in the center, about 20 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 130 degrees F (54 degrees C). Remove from oven and let rest for 15 minutes before slicing.

This was just ok for us. There was a definitive sugar taste for us. Liberal use of sea salt at service helped offset it but it was there. It was a nice change of pace but won't be a repeater at the LTH house. THANKS for the recipe! Read More
