1 16-ounce New York strip steak

Steak rub, for coating


  1. Preheat the grill to 900 degrees F.
  2. Coat the steak with the rub. Grill the steak to caramelize the outside, then flip the steak and add more sugar rub. Flip the steak two more times, each time adding more rub (four times total). Cook the steak to desired doneness, 10 to 13 minutes for medium rare. Rest the steak for few minutes and serve hot.

Cook’s Note

The idea behind this is to caramelize the outside while sealing all the juices inside. At Bastien's we will only prepare this steak rare to medium rare! Although the Bastien's steak rub is a secret, you can use a steak rub that includes several different varieties of sugar along with a blend of herbs and spices.
