New York Strip Grilled to Perfection

  New York Strip Grilled to Perfection
4 Servings
4 NY Strip steaks,  6 ounces each
granulated garlic
granulated onion
coarse sea salt
coarsely cracked black pepper

See Grilling 101 First   

Remove steaks from the refrigerator 30 minutes before grilling and season both sides with granulated garlic, onion, salt and pepper. 
Preheat grill to high, cook for 3 to 6 minutes per side for medium rare. 
To create attractive cross-hatched grill marks, using tongs, give the steaks a quarter-turn halfway through cooking on each side.
When done, allow the steaks to rest for 10 minutes before cutting them. This helps them retain their juice.

Note: Use your finger and poke your steaks.   As steaks cook, they becomes firmer and firmer.  A rare steak has a lot of give [like pudding]; a medium steak feels springy [like jello]; a well-done steak feels very taut [no movement].
