Grilled Chili Steak with Garlic-Lime Butter
As we head into grilling season, this is something you should definitely add to the rotation. New York strip steaks are dry-brined with a chili rub, grilled to perfection, and topped with a rich garlic-lime butter providing a flavor profile similar to that of a bowl of chili. Serve with a cold potato salad, baked or barbecued beans, or a green salad if desired.
This is wonderful with a New York strip steak but might be even better with a fattier rib eye. For something more affordable, try skirt steak or try coating ground beef with the rub and making hamburgers out of it.
You can leave the garlic-lime butter soft, or you can roll it up in some plastic wrap, chill until firm, and slice it to place over the steaks.
You can use a gas grill but I prefer a charcoal grill.
